Tonight I have another layout to share from my summer visits to Cape Henlopen.  My son and I had such a good time going there this summer.  There is a beautiful beach and lots of dunes and a lighthouse and just so much natural beauty.  I am not big on camping but they do have camping spots there and I may consider it for a night next summer as my younger son absolutely loves camping.  (I will do that if I survive camping for CreationFest Northeast in June!) Last year that was my introduction to the world of camping and at my age it is not something you start on a one inch yoga mat on rocky ground!

I used the sketch from Stuck!Sketches for their November 1st GDT call again.  I used it the other day and I rarely repeat sketches but I really liked this one and I needed a 3 photo sketch and this one was perfect...and this time I rotated it.

Here's the sketch:

and here is my layout:
Some of the fun features of this page are my favorite Martha Stewart Border punch which I edged with twill ribbon. 
I really liked the mermaid from a pack of Creative Imaginations embellishments and I pop-dotted her as well as a few shells to give the page a bit more texture. 
I took several photos on the trips we made there so you will get to see a lot more of the beach probably over the winter while I am wishing for brighter warmer days! 
I am also going to share this layout over at Word Art Wednesday for Anything Goes #159.
Thanksgiving is nearly here.  My younger son and I are going to visit my step-family in Carlisle Pennsylvania and are hoping that the weather report which calls for snow is going to turn out to be incorrect.  This is the only time we usually get to see them during the year and have been looking forward to it.
May you and your families and friends have a wonderful, blessed Thanksgiving and be able to share your gratitude to God for all that you have and to remember in prayer all those that are less fortunate and may not have a warm place to enjoy a delicious meal.
Thanks again for stopping by!
