Relaxing at the Beach

Hello & Happy Wednesday!

We've had some really nice sunshine-y weather as of recent and it is making me feel like I need a trip to the beach in Freeport, Bahama's!
Shawn & I went there about 5 years ago to celebrate my birthday with his sister and some of my family (younger brother, sister in law and my oldest daughter).
It was the best vacation I think I ever had and i'd go again in a heartbeat!

So, I saw the challenge that The Paper Players issued this week and I just HAD to play along!

This was right up my alley!

As a little girl up into my early 40's we've always vacationed in Ocean City, Maryland.
I always say I was a beach baby! I have SO many memories of vacations there!
I have been dreaming about a trip to the beach the last few weeks but haven't gotten there yet.
Hopefully soon!

If you follow my blog, you will know I just posted a beach card the other day almost like this one!
I used alot of the same paper and elements but I think I love this one a bit more!
Just to sit in that comfy chair, feet in the sand, drink in my hand and gaze out over the ocean, well,
there I go dreaming again! LOL

My thoughts today....

What a wonderful scene you have created, Wendy! It's perfect for a Summer Vacation theme. Who wouldn't want to sit in a relaxing chair, with a cold drink and great book! Thank you for sharing with The Paper Players!

Super cool, but you stay away from the out of the country beaches, the news is full of bad stuff!
