Avoiding the Sharks: A Surfing Layout

My family just got back from the North Carolina coast, and, yikes, it was a little scary for this Mom whose young son loves his boogie board. The sharks are circling and two teens lost limbs to shark bites at a neighboring beach. 

I didn't want to make my son afraid of the ocean, so I didn't say much to him. Just tried to keep him as safe as I could: swimming in groups, avoiding the pier area and only going out in mid-afternoon (with lots of sunscreen). 

Success. No sign of sharks and, best of all, I had a cute photo from last summer of Cory with his boogie board. 

This is one of the layouts I made using the July kit from My Creative Scrapbook. I used a simple design with a long vertical strip down one side, very similar to the design I used last month for a different beach photo. 

I loved how bright and sunny this kit was. You can see all the MCS kits here.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend! 


  1. Such a fun page with a tropical feel, Izzy! Love the little bits of wave border you used and of course you used the perfect embellishments too. :)

  2. Great photo of him! I'm glad you had a lovely, shark-free vacation!

  3. Gorgeous! LOVING the photo, the colors and the circles!!!

  4. The negative space on this really works! And gulp....I would be a worried mom too...freaky about the sharks. yikes. It's one of our motherhood challenges to withhold our own fears so our children do not acquire them. Bravo!
