Photograph at the Beach | Simple Scrapper
oh hello, my friends!
As many of you know, I live on an island on the East Coast of North America called Newfoundland. Like many, east coast areas you'd think there would be many sandy beaches; however, you are more likely to find a rocky beach here. What's worse is that there's a small window of summer days that you would consider a good beach day. We got lucky and found ourselves in Terra Nova Park, a Canadian National Park, on a beautiful sunny day. We headed to Sandy Pond (Newfoundland is incredibly "original" in their naming of people, places and things), a shallow water pond with a soft sandy beach.
We went to the beach with my sister and her family. They get along amazingly and we are incredibly grateful to have children around the same age that get along. (In fact we are vacationing together in Florida right now).
Isn't it great as a child when you have cousins that are the same age? My husband wasn't as lucky and makes mention of this almost every family event.
One of my favourites memories from this trip is the fact that my son simply refused to take off his sneakers. He also refused to get in the water. My daughter on the other hand, wouldn't get out of the water. However, both her in their glee - one enjoyed the sand while the other, the water. There were also precious moments of hand holding, big smiles and buried dinkies. Those are the moments that I don't want to forget.
For this double layout, I used Stampin' Up! paper as my background paper and embellished largely with Ali Edwards Story kits chipboard words.
The layout comes from a sketch provided by Jennifer Wilson at Simple Scrapper.
Hope you are busy creating memories!
