Lasting Memories Challenge - Sweatin' to the Oldies

This week over at Lasting Memories our challenge is
"Sweatin' to the Oldies" with a twist
We want you to use summer song lyrics from the 50's to the 70's on your layouts!

I chose the famous Beach Boys! It went perfect with my beach photos of Kenzie even though it was technically spring! LOL

The song I chose is California Girls from 1965.
It is number 16 on the Billboard charts of Top 30 summer songs of all time!
I used the title for the title of my layout and I chose the lyric
"California girls...are the cutest girls in the world"
The lyrics sing about all the girls in every part of the states but they wish every girl was a California girl :)

The whole song doesn't apply to Kenzie or my layout but I thought that one line did since we ARE California girls and she IS the cutest girl in the world!!

Here is my layout:
(click on any picture to view it super sized!)
I hand ripped my sand hills and water waves, I really love how they looked before I covered them up lol

I cut my journaling spot from Lacy Labels and stamped with a hero arts stamp and doodled all around the edges

My little girl is a combo of files from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs as well as the bucket and shovel. The sancastle is a free file from Treasure Box Designs. I will be adding this mini set to my etsy shop so if you are interested in purchasing her please visit my shop under Scrappinforkenzie.. it is not fully stocked yet, as it's under construction but I have a few things if you would like to take a look :)

I used my SCAL2 to cut out Edwardian Script from my computer.. I have copies of this version also for sale so if  you are interested in purchasing SCAL2 that works with your cricut please email me!

I used a sketch for this layout:
I turned it upside down and flipped it.. I hope you can still see it.. sorta.. lol
