For this hop we were asked to choose one project that Michelle from Scrappin for Kenzie has made from her gallery or facebook and make our own project using hers as inspiration. 

For my project I have chosen to scraplift this project from her:

Here is my inspired project:

And a different angle...

I was inspired by the love of her daughter and the hearts with the stitching.  This is the very FIRST family vacation that our family of 4 took this last summer to Ocean Shores.  We have gone on MANY vacations... but always with other family members etc.  So these 3 days that we experienced together waere truely a blessing and so much fun!!  You will be seeing more layouts from our trip, for I took so many pictures and we did so many different and fun things in just 3 days.  :-) 

I am also entering my layout in the following challenges:

Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday - Shape it Up - Use at least 3 Shapes on your entry.  I used many HEARTS. 
Scraptastic Club  - Use a favorite children's book for your title.  "Somebunny Loves You."

Somebunny Loves You (Paw Pals)  
I also used the One Page sketch # 18 from Sketch Support for my layout.
