Summer Vacation Photo Card


Last week my son and I had a fabulous vacation with some friends from Philadelphia. They flew out and met us in Southern California, and we were busy nonstop for 9 days. I made this card for them using my friend's favorite photo of all of us. The sun is from Just Because Cards, and the rest of the cuts are from Life is a Beach. Each cut represents something from our trip: the sun is for the incredible weather we had throughout, we saw dolphins when we were on the ferry to Catalina Island, we had dinner on the Queen Mary in Long Beach, and we were successful in our search for new flip flops!

I am submitting this to Lauren's 40:31 "Under the Sea" Challenge. Perfect timing!
