Life is Better at the Beach

Hi Crafty Friends,
August is when my family used to go to Pentwater, Michigan for vacation and I have the fondest memories of those times. I created this card with Pentwater Sunsets in my mind. This is Ava Shell Collector from Digi Doodle Studios. She reminds me of my mom on the beach see my inspiration pictures below.

  1. This Michigan kid loves the whole scene of this card! The lake shore is spectacular... and so is this card. Wow the perfect! blending and splatters and coloring of your mom is also spectacular! Really pretty card. Love the memory pics too. You look like your mom. Going to grandma's house. Ironically hubby and I bought our house a very short distance from her then house. It was waaaaay up north and now its home.

  2. Cute card and pics!
    My favorite memory of a family vacation trip was a camping trip to Yosemite. I was probably around 9 or 10.

  3. I was a child of the 40s and 40s, so
    there weren't as many vacations spots
    available (and we couldn't have
    afforded them anyway). Love the
    background of your card - really
    speaks warmth and summer. thanks
    for sharing. txmlhl(at)yahoo(dot)com

  4. We always went camping when I was a kid, so it would have to be a camping spot.....hmmmmm, maybe Zion. We stopped in there for one night on the way to Wisconsin to see my dad's family. It was very cool.

  5. so wonderful card!
    I lived at the bach as kid so thats my favorite vacation place.

  6. Beautiful card. I love it!
    My favorite childhood vacation spot is Mareda in Croatia.
