bikes on the beach... now and then

we have been going to hilton head for vacation for many years now and one of the things i love about going there is riding bikes on the beach. so many of my summer scrapbook pages have been about our time spent on the island. so it was so fun to find the first layout i did about "bikes on the beach". not a whole lot has changed  except that i like to use pattern papers more now than then.

the first page is one that i just made and the second is a layout i did after our 2008 trip.

i love all of the big photo LOs that i've been seeing in the galleries. so i thought i might try one myself and in the process i think i found a new fave thing.... washi tape pendants. i used a freckled fawn washi for the bird pendant and the freckled fawn tape that came with the SC july add on, twisty slide for the second flag, i am definitely going to make a bunch more of them with different tapes and in different styles styles.
oh, and the pretty tab just under the pendants is from ursula's etsy's.

i also found a few other older pages. it is so cool to see todays trends in these older pages. ( sequins, arrows and using large photos)




happy wednesday!!
