Walk with Grandaddy

I am just loving how versatile this month's Scrapbook Circle kit is.  It's obviously great for anyone who has boys because of all the OA Rocket Age goodies but you know what?  I don't have boys and I am loving it so don't let it scare you. Make sure to check out the projects the other design team gals are sharing in the Idea Gallery.

We only make the road trip to my husband's home town once a year with the kids because it's such a long drive.  Technically it should only be 7 hours but it's been known to take 10 hours with 3 kids.  Anyway, we went over the 4th of July weekend a couple of years ago and we headed down to the beach to watch the city fireworks from afar since my oldest daughter can't take the noise.

I snapped this picture of her walking towards the ocean as the tide was going out.  And of course I got all the grand kids together for the group shot.  We may only make it there once a year but they love spending time with their grandaddy.

I used this week's Sketchy Thursdays sketch as inspiration and made little accordian half banners because they felt very Americana to me. I used the scraps leftover from the scallop punching to trim the journal spot and also to create some edging to the blue & red mat. 
Supplies from Scrapbook Circle Blast Off! kit: Crate Paper Toy Box Collection "Explore" paper, Simple Stories Book Work paper, Simple Stories Elementary Expressions Cardstock Stickers; October Afternoon Miscellany Pack - ribbon, buttons, chipboard, journal tag; White Bazzill 1/2 the Edge border. Not in kit: Kraft and Red Bazzil paper; homeade mist.

Make sure to play along with this week's Sketchy Thursdays sketch for your chance to win some scrapilicious goodies from Cozy Dog! Thanks for looking!

I love what you made for the sketch and for SC. That picture is such a great moment. So glad you captured it. I have one of Nate from the back sitting on a bench with his Papa when he was only 2. I love that one.
