New Backgrounds and a Photo Op

I'm off to the beach this weekend. Just a quick trip to celebrate with family. My brothers eldest and my sisters youngest are both graduating from high school this weekend. Very exciting!

I want to go to the beach so badly. It's SO beautiful up North, and the white sand is perfect! I can't wait to get my feet in the water. I'll take lots of photos

I found some great books to use as backgrounds, ala' Sarah, in place of dictionary pages. One is an old Grimm's Fairy Tales with no cover. The pages are so soft and worn, and the font and illustrations are really lovely. The other is an old cookbook. It's beat up and battered and the cover is trashed. It will work well too.

Must go finish packing. It's a three hour drive!

Hi Christy,
The boys were actually much sweeter about going to the beach...but they ARE pretty wonderful. They're great for muscle power!

Those books are real finds! Can't wait to see the pages.

Hi Maria
The beach was wonderful, thanks! I must get unpacked so I can play with my new backgrounds.
