"Life is Better at the Beach" Photo Journal

Hi Friends,

Nothing says Southern California like the beach!   So this morning I'm delighted to bring you one of my favorite subject matters.   It's always been a dream of mine to live next to the beach but the closest I've been able to come to it is a vacation in my wonderful RV.

I love the sunshine, the smell of the ocean and the wonder of standing next to something that reminds me just how quickly life passes us by.   I'm always reminded of the important things in life when I'm away at the beach.  A smile, a laugh, playfulness, children and all the things I hold dear like my family and friends. 

I created this journal for my friend Heather in a  secret sister swap from a colorful paper collection made by Bo-Bunny called "Key-Lime." The colors scream summer fun!  I've left plenty of room for pictures, memorabilia, journaling and found some funky paper clips to help secure a few extra surprises along the way.  So, lets give it a look:

Well friends that's it for me today.  I loved how this journal came out that I decided that I needed to make one for myself to hold all my fun summer beach pictures from my grand daughters recent visit. 

Thank you so much for dropping by my blog today and may I wish you a wonderful day!   Until next time, create something from your heart and live life inspired!  ~  Dawna

  1. This book is so neat. And you probably had a great time doing it. It inspired me to do a mini album of my grandson's visit. Thank you Dawna.
