sand dollar.

hello!  yes, I have been away spending a MUCH needed fall break with my family AWAY from computerlandia...ANYWAY, I wanted to share with you a layout that was featured on the Scrapbook Circle blog last week:
I got to feature the different fonts that are included in the So Happy Together kit for this month.
little closeup:
This picture makes me smile, my girl had JUST found a WHOLE sand dollar in the ocean...(kind of made up for the NOT so good soccer game that was played in the tournament.)  I really like the capture of the true excitement on her face, I also like the fact that her little brother is in the background--he wanted one too!  It wasn't meant to be for him BUT the other brother did find another smaller one.  What a BEAUTIFUL way to end the warm day.
I "painted" the background again with a plastic bag and mist--then dropped some gold right on top--FUN stuff!
Hey thanks SO much for you visit today!
