Walk on the Ocean

Remember that song from Toad the Wet Sprocket?  I use to love it.  Anyhow, that song was running through my head when I was working on this scrapbook page.  I wanted to scrap these pictures from our trip from Virginia Beach this spring.   Liz wanted to swim in the ocean SO BAD, but it was too cold.  You can see her pouty face in the bigger pic because I wouldn’t let her put on her swim suit.  (I’m such a meanie!)  The round pic is her running out of the ocean after I gave in and said she could put her feet in.

I’m going to keep this short.  We are having people over later today so I’m off to clean the house.   Have a great weekend!  Thank you for stopping by!


In case you forgot about Toad the Wet Sprocket, here is the video for “Walk on the Ocean”.




  • Papers:  Papertrey kraft CS, Pink Paislee Nantucket paper pack
  • Ink:  Distress Ink Antique Linen
  • Tools:  Sewing machine, Big Shot, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Papertrey Edgers #1
  • Embellishments:  Twinery Caribbean baker’s twine



I never knew that was Toad the Wet Sprocket song...and how the heck did they come up with that band name?? layout! I like the three circles on the bottom and how you distressed the edges where the sentiment is!

Have a great day!

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
