40 and Fab mini album

Here's a mini album I made recently for a client who recently celebrated her 40th birthday with a murder mystery dinner. She wanted a vintage 1920's inspired album to display some of her favorite photos.  I had a lot of fun making this album.  It's been a busy summer filled with lots of scrapbooking and I still have more mini albums to finish for clients.  As soon as I'm done working on albums for clients I am going to spend lots of time catching up on some personal scrapbooking.  I have lots of photos that need a happy home in either my Project Life album, other various mini albums, or layouts.  I can't wait to have some time to catch up on all of my own projects.  But for now I am loving making albums for my clients. 

Beach Fun

Summer is going by way too fast.  I wish I could stop time so we could enjoy every minute of it. Well maybe not the hot, humid minutes but the fun family vacation minutes. We've tried to do lots of fun family activities to keep us busy this summer.  We took a quick trip to the beach a few weeks ago and we did all our favorite things. We played in the sand, Isabella swam in the ocean, I did a little antique shopping, we ate at one of our favorite restaurants, and stopped for ice cream.  We were even able to meet up with some friends and have dinner.  I think next to Disneyland the beach is one of our favorite places to go. We usually seem to do the exact same things when we go there but the kids love it and I see it as continuing family traditions.  I'm hoping to take another quick family to the beach trip soon. Until then I will just look at these photos and dream about cool ocean air and yummy fish and chips.
