Beach bums

It's so good to be beach bums for a few days. We had a lovely time down the coast. The first 4 days we were there having family time and on the weekend friends with their kids arrived to have some fun all together. So on the weekend we were there with 13 people in total, good fun!!

We mostly spend our time on the beach walking, playing, looking for sea shells and jumping in the waves. It is just the best place to spend a holiday I reckon (hey I'd prefer to live somewhere along the coast but that's just not possible now unfortunately...).

I thought I'd share a few of my favourite pics that I took. (The girls are wearing the dresses I bought specifically for photo's.. I didn't tell Al this of course hehe).

LOL, it seems the only pics I have of Chris is where he is very serious doing something (and not noticing me taking a pic, having fun and laughing with his sisters or silly ones like this one where he is being silly for the camera *sigh* teenagers :)

I did not scrap at all while we were away. I did take a bag with me with my tools and some DT work, but I did nothing. Which was nice for a change... but not too long :)
While I was lounging on the beach there was a Cybercrop happening at CIS. The girls were so sweet to put up my challenge (a sketch one.. thanks Karen for you help :) ) and this was my LO for it... crazy chickies!!

Ally has set up a new forum, it's gorgeous. Come and sign up here and join in the fun!!

Chels sent me these gorgeous Sassafras lass papers a little while ago and this was a LO I did with them. Just love those papers!!

The next 2 LO's are for in my BOM that I have started now that I've turned 40... The LO's were for challenges at ScrapBoutique.
The towel daily drama was Kate's challenge from last month.

And the "40" was the monthly challenge set by Chels last month.

I have set this months Stylist inspiration challenge at ScrapBoutique this month. Go and have a look and play!!
Also you can still sign up for our Santa Workshops. The packs have all sold out but you can still join in the classes for only $25!! A bargain!
Hope to see you around the forums!!
Happy Scrapping :)
