Here is the scrapbook layout I created for the hop. 

The adventure I documented was a small part of our trip to San Diego last summer. 

When I was little, I would spend a week in San Diego and my grandma and I would spend hours looking for shells on the shore.  I wanted to do the same thing with the kids, so we did.  We did not find a lot of shells, and we got eaten by bugs, but it was still a great adventure.
Here is a detail picture of the shells I added to the layout as embellishments that I cut with my Cricut and Life's a Beach cartridge.

Thanks for stopping by.   

Be sure to hop over to my friend Narelle's Blog.

Here's our line up in case you get lost along the way.
