Jersey Shore

I grew up on the Jersey Shore and was quite dismayed to see a Hurricane with my name make landfall in my hometown area!  I was looking through photos and found these pics I had taken back in the early 70's and thought I would make a 12" x 12"scrapbook page for them.  This is Brant Beach on Long Beach Island where I spent many happy summer days.

Behind each of the photos, I placed a Nautical Wheeler Doily to which I added a bit of Distress ink.  Using my Dotties's Ric Rac I created borders to mount the bottom portion of the Homeward Bound frame.  I added Flower Soft to each of the cattails as well as a bit of Distress ink.  (Thank you, Jodi, for the idea to use just the reeds and cattails)  I used my Lower Case Lace Script alphabet for the words.  When I was a kid and learning to draw, I always called seagulls in the sky "M birds" as they looked like part of the letter "m".  So that is how I created the birds for my layout; I die cut the lower case "m" and then trimmed out my bird, lol.

Great job! Nice pictures, but like the way you've put it all together. And it's clever about the way you did the birds. Edna

Wonderful ideas, Sandy! Love the way you used the different dies. So sad about the area from the storm. At least your memories can't be erased!

Nice use of photos to make a memory card. Like the flower soft use, too.
