Challenge Me Monday #123

Hello Everyone,

It's Monday and time for another Challenge Me Monday at The Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog.
Today the challenge #123 is Jump in and cool off. You are to make a project with a water theme (pool, beach, water park, etc.) Don't forget to include at least 1 cricut cut. Here is my project:

I live 1 mile from the beach. (wonderful Lake Erie). I am blessed I know. This summer we have had an amazing time there, so I decided to make a simple mini book to document and remember it. I am only showing the cover this week because it is a work in progress. My husband and I have walked, run and got in much better shape here this summer ( lots of steps and hills). It is so beautiful and many days there is such a nice breeze.(exercise can even be fun here)  Some days after a work out we sit on the beach and relax and some days we put flips on and walk the edge of the water. The pebbles in the sand are some of the shells and beach glass we have found. It has been truly an amazing journey.

Just Because Cards: Sun which I applied glossy accents to
Pack your Bags: Beech chair and girl (used copics to shade her a little)
Sports Mania: Runner
Sand is cork board
Beach is Grunge board Alpha set inked and rock candy distressed stickles
Paper Pack for Mini is A Day at the Beach by The  Paper Studio
Cinch for the binding

I hope you check out the other design team members, I am sure you will be inspired. Then I hope you take this challenge on (it is lots of fun) then link your project up. Don't forget to have at least 1 cricut cut. Good Luck!
