Vacation Scrappin'!

Challenge:   Scrap your Vacation
July 23 - 29

Hello My Crafty Friends!
Today is my design team day with Cuttin' and Stampin' Challenges and our theme for this week is "Scrap Your Vacation".  I was lucky enough to have recently returned from a vacation with some extended family members to celebrate my niece's (who in our family is referred to as my "other daughter" and I am her "other mother") 30th birthday.  Yes, I know, I could I ever have a niece turning 30??  I'm pretty sure she is lying about her age to make herself seem older than she is!!

Anyway- since I just had a fun beach vacation with some special family members- this challenge was perfect for me to get some photos scrapped!  (I am embarrassed to say how long it has been since I have done ANY scrapbooking!).  So let's call this layout "simple scrapping" ! 
Here's a look at my 2 page layout:

This is very simple Scrapping!  I used my Silhouette, my favorite cutting machine these days- to cut some cute files. Some of the files were from the Silhouette America store, others were cut files I've found on line.
Let's have a few close ups of some of the photos and die cuts:

I thought this was the perfect title for my layout! 

 This adorable sun and cloud was a freebie from Miss Kate's Cuttables!

  I thought the beach umbrella was so cute!

This is from the Silhouette Store - I used the Sketch pens for part of this
and then cut the words "Life" and "the" from paper!
LOVE using my Sketch Pens!
My sweet niece (or "other daughter") my "sister" Judy and I!  
A couple of close ups of photos on the page.
Well, that wraps it up for todays post!  
I hope that you will "Scrap Your Vacation" and link it up to our 
Challenge Page! 
Please make sure your creation post has a link back to Cuttin' and Stampin'
