Hi Everyone! It's Challenge time over at the Quick Quotes Blog and it's being hosted by our very own Michelle on the QQ Design Team. The challenge this week that Michelle picked was to use a number on your project. Well I was going through some pictures and found these of McCade's 1st Trip 2 the Beach! How Perfect! Isn't he Adorable! He was about 2 1/2 years old and had never been to the Beach since we were living in Vegas at the time. We had went down to visit my other Son Brian at the time and Brian Loves the Beach so had to share that experience with his little Brother! But can you believe I didn't even get ANY pics of them together!!!!
Well I've been dying to use the Quick Quotes "Live Out Loud" Paper Line and what a perfect opportunity with the bright colors! I also used my faithful Cricut and the main Cartridge I used was "Pack Your Bags" (Love It!) if you don't have it, really think about getting it. I also used Life's a Beach, a true staple in my cartridge stash. I also highlighted and shaded some of the images with some of the Quick Quotes Chalk Inks in Tahiti, Limeade, Blue Hawaiian, and Mocha Mama.
It's a pretty minimal layout without alot of embellishments that I always have a tendency to add but I do have a few extras. The cardstock I used was Colorbok and DCWV, I used my Jelly Roll for some accents in White, Brown and touches of Black. I also used my Cuttlebug to emboss some of the images. The folders I used are Swiss Dots, Devine Swirls, Spots & Dots, Forest Branches, and Welcome Baby.
And Yes I added one of my favorite hidden Journal Spots! I added it to the Beach Ball! How perfect is that!
I just Love this picture of my Little Man, boy they grow up SOOOOO Fast! Oh and I also added some dew drops to the page, don't they remind you of Bubbles, I hope so because that's what I was hoping for, lol!
And this is my all time favorite pic! He wanted to Boogie Board so bad but was so afraid of the water, well not so much of the water it was the pull on his feet "trying to pull him back in" he said so he wouldn't try Boogie Boarding, that was the extent of it, On Land, LOL! I had to hold him for him to get in the water and then he was okay with it!
Well I sure hope you enjoyed McCade's 1st Trip 2 The Beach (lol) I also hope you decide to join us over at the Quick Quotes Blog and Link up your New project. You don't have to use QQ papers (but if you have them, why not, lol) You could win a prize and the best part.............................
You get to win a Quick Quotes Blinkie to add to your Blog, along with Bragging Rights!!!! And be posted as a Winner on the Quick Quotes Blog along with a picture of your project! How Cool is That!!!
Well I hope you have a great weekend, are you doing anything exciting (?) maybe taking a trip to the Beach yourself, well enjoy! We will be going to the Hwy 127 Yard Sale! It's a Yard Sale that is 675 miles long and goes from Michigan to Alabama, we usually stay in KY and go down to TN but this year we're going north toward Ohio! We've been every year since we've been here and is always fun! There's a lot of commercial vendors but alot of people have their yard sales also and those are the ones that I like to stop at. I've got some fun and unusual things in the past years, you know, one man's trash is another Women's treasure, lol! I'm bringing my camera this year so I'll have to take some pics of the traffic and all the crazy people (including myself) that is willing to go out in the 100+ degrees weather to find a treasure! Wish me Luck and if your looking for something specific, let me know now and I'll keep my eye out for it! Well with that said.............................
((Hugs)) and Take Care!
