FREE FOR ALL CHALLENGE #9




Hi, this is my second post for today. Please scroll down to see the Clearly Inspired Challenge post. Come play.
I am so happy to say thay my feet that have been giving me problems, causing me to limp for almost 2 months are finally getting better. Yay! I am so happy. I just noticed it the last days. Not as much pain and the swelling has gone down considerably. Thank you Heavenly Father for your blessing. Now onto this post...
This is my card for today's Free For All Challenge

My most memorable vacation, is most recent. My husband and I went to Ocean Shores, WA (2-3 hours from us) for our Anniversary last September.
We flew our kite, waded in the cold water, ate salt water taffy and I visited a scrapbooking store (I could not believe they had one at this tiny tourist spot). I bought this adorable paper that I have never seen anywhere else.

So for my vacation card today, I am using the paper I bought on our last vacation.
