Love this layout! This beach hop is making me want to work on my honeymoon album where we spent 2 weeks on a sailing ship island hopping in the Carribbean so I have a lot of beach pics to scrap. I would say it is about time to do it too since it has been almost 24 years :0

Fantastic layout, April! I have only been to CA a couple of times, once to San Diego and the second to San Francisco. I must admit that the beaches there are beautiful! I'm a new follower and will be back after the hop ends to have a better look at your blog. TFS!
