My beach babies!

For Easter weekend, Chad and I decided that we wanted to drive down to Charleston to take a breather. While down there we decided to take Josh and Gracie to the beach to play around for a little while. They had a great time playing in the sand and water even though the water was freezing!!! But they are kids and it didn't stop them.

Here is my layout of Josh playing in the water and as soon as I printed this picture out I knew it had to be the picture for a layout that I'd been wanting to do. The journaling is the chorus to the Rascal Flatts song "My Wish". I used the Pink Paislee Captivating papers and love how it all turned out. It is also my scraplift challenge for the week over at Color Me Daisy.

My next layout is of my beautiful little Gracie La La (self given nickname!). I am thrilled with how this picture turned out! My new technique with photography is let them play and not let them know that I'm taking pictures. So far, it's working like a charm! This layout was inspired by a Renoir painting in other words, the Ready, Set, Slow contest at Life Preservers. The owner is asking us to base our layout on the Renoir painting "A Girl With a Watering Can". So this is my creation.

Well, I think that's all I have for this week. Next week I will have my latest creations from the Color Me Daisy May "Happiness" kit. Wishing everyone a fantastic week and a very wonderful and fun-filled Mother's Day!!!
