Boogie Board Layout

Yesterday, when I shared my "Go Jump in the Lake" layout, I wanted to link to this layout I made last year, but I couldn't find it! I really thought I'd shared it, but apparently not!

This layout is about my dad boogie boarding on the beach. He loves to boogie board, especially on our family vacation to Long Beach Island, so I thought I would capture it in a layout. And I'm so glad I did, because for the first time in 16 years, we didn't go to LBI this year!

I used the same Echo Park Splash paper as yesterday, and a very similar technique with the pictures! I really love doing the cut outs for the pictures with this paper! 

Well, I was up at 5:30am again today! But this time it was because I had to log in to Southwest at 6am! I am definitely going back to bed, unlike yesterday!

We are getting some crazy thunderstorms here in Chicago. Last night, the lightning was crazy as we were going to sleep, and when I woke up in the middle of the night, there was non stop lightning happening! I really thought that someone had just pointed a really big light at my window because there were no breaks between the flashes, just constant lightning!

My family in New York said there were crazy storms there yesterday too! Are you getting storms like this? Do you like lightning storms? I love watching the lightning over the lake!

Great page! That is awesome about your dad boogie boarding. I love LBI too!
We had a crazy storm on Sunday night and a little one last night. We really need the rain but I could do without the lightning and thunder.
I hope you got a good 'check in' assignment on Southwest and that you got back to sleep!

What an awesome picture of your dad! We had a very, very small storm last night. We could stand to have about a months worth of rain though! It's so hot and dry here!

We hardly ever get lightening storms here. I find them so exciting! How could you not grab your camera and take photos? That's what I would have done.

I love all types of storms, thunder, lightning, snow.....all of course if I am safe in the house and don't need to go anywhere.
Your layout is so fun. I love how you mimicked the waves. Such great photos as well.
