Hey there! Thanks for joining me today and for those of you who posted a comment on yesterday's post I just wanted to say: cilantro tastes like soap and armpits to me. And, boy, a lot of you camp. AND ENJOY IT. How is that even possible? I think that's why houses were built...
I really enjoyed reading all the fun things you all are doing right now (besides those of you munching on cilantro and camping).
Enough with the joking. Let's get down to business and dive right into today's topic: Beach/Vacation/Stay-cation layouts. I'll start with one from the very talented Beth Proudfoot:

Next we have a couple from Jody Wenke:
And now a few from Celeste Smith:
Journaling tip: Write down what your kids say for your journaling like Celeste did. One of my favorite ways to journal, if I do say so myself.

And here's a mini accordion album from Kelly Jeppson:
I've never done an accordion but I'm going to try one now. Thanks, Kelly!
And here's a layout by me:
Journaling tip: I used numbers as a prompt for my journaling. I totally stole this from Laura Kurz, btw.
Here's a closer look at my journaling page:
