Monday Memories (on a Tuesday!).

Yesterday ran away from me, and by the time evening arrived I could not face sitting at the computer anymore.  So instead I thought I would use the time to scrap the photo on my calendar.

This was taken last year, when we were on holiday in Spain.  My Mum and Dad have an apartment near Alicante, and we love going to stay, especially the girls.  Its not the best photo in the world, as they were looking into the sun.  It was taken at Gaurdamar beach, which is our favourite to visit.  As it was Easter, it was quiet - the Spanish think we are quite mad going on the beach at this time of year as they prefer it when it gets much hotter!  My youngest loves the sand and the sea, so we visit whatever the weather.  The three of them are making a sand castle, complete with moat which as the tide came in filled with water! 

If you walk futher along this beach you will see sand sculptures;

I love how blogging seems to be feeding my creativity.  Before I started my blog, I had all but stopped scrapping, overwhelmed by the amount of photos I had.  However writing this blog as really opened my eyes, that it is not about getting it done but about preserving the memories and telling the story.

I enjoyed putting this layout together - it is based on the Shimelle's sketch of the week.  The papers are from a Sarah's Card Kit - I used to subscribe.  They are GCD - Ava.

I know what you mean about the blog feeding your creativity - it is the same for me :-)
Your page today is really lovely, I am drawn to that colour scheme, despite not being a yellow person, you have put them all together extremely well! :-)

Yes, I'm definitely making a lot more things so that I have a steady supply of pages for my blog!

This is a beautiful page. I love the colours too.
