Have you ever seen the fun movie Surf's Up?

Several years ago I had a job doing merchandising for Sony.  They often treated us to copies of the movies that we were placing.  This was one of the ones I received.  My younger son absolutely loved it and we watched it several times. He is now 16 and we don't have as much time or inclination to watch the many animated films we own on DVD.  A few weeks ago he decided we should pull this one out again and watch it together.

I had recently been catching up on scrapping some old beach photos from 1996.  It was fun getting to play with my new Echo Park collection 'Splash!'

These photos are not of my movie buddy but of my eldest.

Here is my layout - 

Here are some fun close-ups~

I know that you can see that the entire layout is beach themed but I also included some actual parts of the beach - here are some real shells.  

(They are a part of a fun new product called Mudd Puddles!)

Don't you love that great swirl of water?  

How about those cute little fishies?

and finally cute little Robert! 
(this photo and the caption are on 
pop dots for a bit of added dimension!)

So I hope you have enjoyed my Surf's Up 
blast from the past.  

I am going to enter this layout into this week's showcase at 2 Creative Chicks and Anything Goes challenge #194 at Word Art Wednesday and Tinker-Dream challenge #31 Summer and Anything Goes challenge #1 at A Bit More Time to Craft

All comments greatly appreciated.
