Where's the Beach?

Our summer vacation with our grandchildren has sadly come to an end.  I miss them already.   Art and I had a glorious time with Nicole 11, Sara 4, Joe 7 and Caroline 9.  From history lessons in Williamsburg, Virginia to bigger than life amusements parks and water parks, we had a blast!  Hey Mom Stacy, you should be so proud as they were all very well behaved!!

The grand finale was a two week Southwest adventure with Nicole who is going into middle school.
And we're off!

I must tell you that one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen is seeing the Grand Canyon through Nicole's eyes as she gazed at it for the very first time.  I am one lucky grandmother!!

The whole family gathered at my son's house this summer for a free for all.  Five teenage girls and my daughter's four kids plus a friend of Nicole's.  Obviously I could not get them all corralled for a picture so I grabbed  my son Scott, his wife Daphene and my gorgeous 16 year old granddaughter Hayley.

Now it is time to rejoin my card making buddies at the Inventory Challenge.  And yes ladies, I missed you too!!  This week's challenge is "Something Old and Something New" .  I will let the gang of four decided if my card meets their challenge.   I give you "Where's the Beach?"

The picture does not convey the pure white of the card stock nor does it show the scoring I did using my Score Pal which runs vertically within  the white background.

Please visit my partners in crime as they too play Inventory Challenge #42.  Hey Gals did I make the grade?
