Finally . . .

Well, its' been over 12 days since I posted a layout and I'm happy to say that I've got one to share with you. It may have been sitting on my scrapbook table for awhile as I slowly worked on it, but given how I have felt lately it was a good feeling to get it finally completed. I used my June kit from Artful Delight packed with Simple Stories Summer Fresh papers and stickers, perfect for beach pictures and the sunshine theme for the  June 1st challenge at Get Creative.  Before I share it with you I wanted to thank everyone that left me so many kind and encouraging comments on my last post. They meant a lot to me!  Today I'm in a good place and I hope that it continues.
Working on this layout was a walk down memory lane.  The year, 1989 and my son and his cousin enjoying sun filled days at the beach.  There is a year difference between the two of them and summer vacation at the beach they were always inseparable.  My little guy in the pictures in the one holding the bottle!  I really enjoyed working with the Summer Fresh Collection by Simple Stories.  

On another note Saturday my sister and I went to the Great American Scrapbook Convention in Virginia.  It's been years since I attended it.  I did get to meet and talk with Jenni Bowlin who had a booth there.  She is truly one sweet person.  I loved her booth decorated with some fabulous layouts,  her new products and lots and lots of vintage goodies. I also got to meet and talk with Jill Yegerlehner, owner of Jillibean Soup.    It was nice to meet the faces behind these two companies.  

 Thanks for stopping by!
