I Love Page Maps!!

Whew--busy week! My brother and his family were in town visiting and we had a splendid time enjoying their company and exploring some of the great activities Texas has to offer! We had a great time, but boy am I tired now!

My favorite day was spent at the beach, swimming, surfing, building sand castles, flying, kites, collecting shells, chasing birds, and enjoying the nice weather!

Yes, sometimes the waves get big enough to ride here in Texas :)

We had a great time and despite the very slight sun burns are very glad we had the opportunity to get a little beach time in this spring and play with family! I did this a lot growing up in California, so it is always nice to relive a few childhood memories while we make new ones. :)

Now, back to the title of my post...yes, I love page maps and have been a fan for many years now! This month I had the opportunity to contribute to the newsletter and I've been waiting to share it for a few weeks now. Here is my layout made mostly with October Afternoon Papers, but with some Cosmo Cricket, Making Memories, and Basic Grey stuff tossed in:

This is my Blake from about 2 1/2 years ago. It is my favorite photo of him and a big enlargement of it hangs in my staircase. I smile every time I walk past it.  You can check out the sketch this layout was based on and all the other April sketches/layouts by clicking here.
Have a great day, and Happy Easter!

  3. oh, the beach looks fun! We've got to make it down there some time this Summer.

  4. The weather here is finally getting warm enough for the beach but the water is FREEZING! You're lucky that the water is a bit warmer there.
