More vacation pics from Point No Point

We visited Point no Point on the Puget Sound near Seattle on our first day of vacation.
The boys did some fishing and they even caught a few there. It was the first time Benny had ever fished in salt water. He loved it!! After the we, (the girls) finished shopping in Poulsbo, we joined the boys for a picnic on the beach. There is nothing like the ocean!! I could sit and watch the waves all day and never grow tired of it!! Charley wasn't impressed though! We tried to get him to go into the water and he would have nothing to do with it!! He was quite comical!

After lunch, we took a little stroll along the shore and just enjoyed being together. What a blessing!!! It was a fantastic day!! Here are a few family photos and a picture of the Point No Point lighthouse.

While on vacation, I finished a layout for the So Sketchy Blog. The sketch is awesome and I had a blast making the layout, but I have to admit the photo I sent to Allison was not my best. Sorry about that Allison!!! I was using a different computer with different software and I just didn't get the photo to look the way I wanted it to. Here is the layout using my software from home.

I used Pink Paislee papers, Making Memories florals and alphas, Chatterbox florals and buttons, a Scenic Route butterfly, Cosmo Cricket ribbon, and a Hambly transparency strip.

Thanks for looking everyone!!

Have a great weekend!!

I so MISS the ocean! Beautiful pictures! And I love the layout!

Christine said...

Great photos, Kristii! I agree...I could sit near the ocean and listen to the waves lapping at the shore forever! LOL! :)

Fabulous layout! I love the scallop bordered circles (they look like large flowers), and the journaling around the layout is so cool! Doesn't Allison create the best sketches? I just love them!

Have a great weekend!
