When this photo was taken I was 23, living back at home after finishing college, working full time and dating Hansel.

This layout features a photo of me in June 1990, at the beach with my boyfriend, Hansel. We had just taken a long walk and then plopped down on the sand to watch the sun set.

Mentor Headlands is the beach my bro and I grew up going to, so of course I always took it for granted. But in reading the beach’s website I found this bit of info quite interesting:
“The trademark of Headlands Beach State Park is its mile-long natural sand beach, the largest in the state. In addition to its popularity during the summer season with picnickers and swimmers, the area is home to many plant species typically found only along the Atlantic Coast.”

Product/technique notes

I created this layout based on sketch #7 by Juliana Michaels for The Paper Bakery and am entering it in their sketch challenge. The patterned papers I used were mostly from Simple Stories’ “Summer Fresh” collection, with a bit of October Afternoon and My Mind’s Eye thrown in the mix to make the Polaroid element (which was a free cut file from The Paper Bakery as well).
