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.
