Crashing Waves


I'm loving the April challenge themes at "Lasting Memories"     I'm behind one week but there is always tomorrow to do another vacation layout.   The challenge posted on 4-12 is titled "Sunny Shores" and you can't find anywhere better, in my view, than the sunny shores in Hawaii.
We took a family vacation Feb. 2014 to Kona, Hawaii, it was my habby and I and my Dad and brother.   We take so many trips together and they are always great and this one was no exception.

I loved our view right on the rocks and water at our rental house for the week.    We used vacation rentals by owners and we had a fantastic house complete with pool to enjoy the week.
Sitting outside on the lanai, or inside with the doors all open it was so awesome to hear the waves crashing all the time.   The best sound ever.   We had one really rainy day and the waves got so big we could be sitting well inside the house and still see the waves crash high over the rocks.

So what is your favorite shore to visit?    Get out those pictures and make a layout for this challenge at  "Lasting Memories"    Check out all the details   HERE.

Now for my bonus.   There is also a great challenge at "Picture This" that was announced on April 15th.    The challenge there is  to use 3 Photos and Travel.    So with that in mind that is why I picked out 3 pictures of the waves just out our backdoor to make this layout.     As much as I wish I could live there and see this site daily, we did have to travel there.   We even had to fly.   LOL.    My husband isn't scared of flying, but just hates to fly because of all the wait times in airports and the close fitting seats on the plane.    So he would much rather drive across country than fly anywhere.
We have made many road trips.  Living in the center of the US in Missouri, you really have to drive aways to get to any vacation locals.    

You can check out all the details   HERE  for the challenge at "Picture This"    You still have 10 days to enter either of the April challenges here.

Great layout! I love the little fish as well as the wonderful blue patterned paper (reminds me of waves from Japanese papers.) The matting, title and journaling are the perfect touches! Thanks for sharing! Best of luck with the challenges! I'm inspired!

Really great memories. I want to visit Kailua Kona Hawaii where they have shops one in particular Mana Beads where I buy beads and Hemp twine. Also looks like those picture sizes are 4x4 which I love using myself. Great layout really nice and neat.
