Beach Vacation Album

In June/July, the Scrappin' Sisters, along with our DH's, took a trip to the beach!!! In order to actually get this trip scrapped, we did the pages ahead of time or at least as much as we could. I took along my portable printer so we could just add pictures and embellishments during the vacation. It worked out pretty well!!! Afterward I made pockets for the front and back of the album to store memorabilia.
Before going to the beach, Mini-Book Mama and I attended the Great American Scrapbook Convention in Virginia. It was a blast!
While we scrapped, the guys went into D.C. for some sightseeing!
The day after the convention ended, we hit the road for North Carolina and the Outer Banks. Our first sights of the beach were very welcome after the long drive.
Then we tried our luck out in the waves and on the beach building sand castles.
Of course, it was also great just hanging out around the pool back at our beach house. It had a Tiki Bar which was the favorite spot for the guys.
One of the days we went to visit lighthouses - Bodie Island and Cape Hatteras. A few of us made it all the way to the top at Hatteras - what a view!!!
We couldn't get enough of the beach. It was awesome just for hanging out and watching the waves. The ghost crabs were fun to watch, also.
Of course, just being all together was the best part of the trip!
We made it back to D.C. for the Fourth of July and took a cruise on the Potomac River to watch the fireworks.
It was a great vacation - the time just went by too fast, but I'll always have my scrapbook to remember it by!
