For my project today, I created....

This 12 x 12 layout is of a photo from last summer at Daytona Beach. I discovered that after years of hating the beach I now LOVE the beach. I grew up in Maryland and the beaches there are not like the beaches in Florida. Well I love spending time at the beach now. The photo is of my good friend Kim and I just hanging out and soaking up some sun.
