Beach 2012

We try to do things as a family as much as possible and my husband loves to go to the beach.  We only make it to the ocean once or twice a year, but we make the most of it!  One of our favorite beaches is Rocky Neck State Park Beach on the south-east coast of CT.  It's smaller with almost no waves and is never crowded.  There is a hiking trail and rocks to climb on.  When our kids are a bit older, we may prefer a wilder beach, but this is perfect for us right now!
I managed to take lots of pictures during this beach trip.  So, I made some highlight layouts with my favorites: 
This layout is the kids and I out on the end of the rock barge.  I did it for the Twisted Pixels Template challenge at Gotta Pixel.  I used the Seaside Dreams kit by A+Designs

My hubbie and the kids :)
This one is for Oscraps June Template Challenge and I used Sue Cummings' One Perfect Day kit.
 But I still had a ton of great photos and a wonderful day to remember.  I knew I wouldn't be able to create an individual layout for each story or photo, so I planned a double page collage:

These are two separate templates from Kitty Designs, but used the same frame and had the same feel.  So, I planned it so the frames tapered off and even though they can stand alone, they work together.  I used the Duolicious collab by A+Designs and Dani Moy Designs, Some Beach.  The smaller frames and curled paper are from the template.
I was so impressed at how well the kids climbed the rocks.  Even my youngest is a little mountain goat!  They also enjoyed the water and swam quite a bit as well as made a huge hole in the sand ... I don't know what the appeal in that is, but they had fun!

Lots of great photos from a wonderful day!!!
I hope you like it!

Simply Turquoise * FREEBIE

Don't you just love the color turquoise?  I do!  I am so excited to show you Wendy Tunison Deisgns' new release Simply Turquoise, the latest kit in her Simplicity Line.  It has just the right amount of rustic to make you smile too!  It will be 40% off during it's debut week and if you pick it up this week, as an added bonus, you'll get the add-on for free too! 
Check out the awesome layouts our CT created with this kit...

Here is my layout:
I used one of Wendy's Temptations 6 templates and two alphas from her Two Hearts.
Be sure to check at the bottom of this post for my Simply Turquoise FREEBIE!

We have a dear friend and fellow designer that has been diagnosed with leukemia. She has missed a lot of work and so designers from Scraps N Pieces and Stuff to Scrap have come together to put together a fund raising kit to benefit our Dear Friend. She is a great designer and a good friend to all of us. She is having to take a break right now from work and from designing to take care of herself and we hope the funds raised from this template pack will help benefit her in some small way and show our appreciation to her for all she has done to help and support us.
This template pack contains 40 - 12x12 templates and 4 - 8.5 x 11 templates in PSD, TIF, PNG, and PAGE formats. You will get tons of use from them and be able to use them over and over again. Be sure to tell your friends to come pick up this great deal on some awesome templates and help out our friend in the meantime.  Template pack is $15 regularly, but on sale for $11.99 right now. That makes it less than 30cents per template!
Here are a couple of super cute layouts made with a couple of these templates
Don't forget to also check out the new store collab for August called Locker Talk!  It's fabulous!
SNP is also hosting a digi retreat in Vegas this fall!  Have you reserved your spot yet?
We're also gearing up to start another awesome challenge with hundreds of dollars in prizes on the line!

Wendy has also decided to feature a previously released kit each week and this week it's Midterm!  I love the colors in this kit and it is 50% off this week!
