Photo Shoot At The Beach

So here's the 2nd of the two scrapbook pages I recently made. The picture I used was taken the same day as the other one, but this one was shot by my oldest daughter who is a professional photographer. She had taken my husband and me to Laguna Beach to take pictures of us. She ended up putting them into a beautiful book in which all four of our children wrote the most wonderful messages throughout the pages, and they gave the book to us for Christmas. It was an amazingly wonderful gift which we will cherish always!
Anyway... back to the photo shoot: After we were finished having our pictures taken, she took a few shots with our youngest daughter in them, too. I just love this one!

For this page, I again used K&Company stitched paper from that same kit. I thought the colors in this were great with the photograph. And I found some Webster's Pages ribbon that really picked up the green that was on the page as well as in the photo.

I used SU!'s flower punch to punch out a stamped flower and simply wrote in it for my title.

A few SU! buttons and some Papertreyink twine were added on the top right corner of my photograph as a simple embellishment.

And another one of those cute bee dimensional stickers from K&Company to adorn the flower on the page.

And finally, I adhered some tiny, real sea shells with glue dots to the page. I did this little cluster and then a few shells spread about the page as well.

It was great being able to get a couple of pages done so quickly! Keeping in mind that I don't have to make a huge, long project out of every page makes me realize that as long as I just keep at it, eventually all those photos will get scrapbooked after all!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a great week!
