My Summer Vacation, Mixbook and a Photo Challenge...

So, my family is blessed to be able to take advantage of my (very generous) in-law's summer house up by Sleeping Bear Dunes, Lake Michigan. It's always the highlight of our summer - staying up until 3am every night, catching crawdads, tubing, climbing the dunes, exploring little towns, and simply taking in the extreme beauty all around. This year, I was inspired to dig out my camera and keep it with me throughout the trip. I had a photographic blast!

After I got home, I went to the Mixbook site and made an incredible little book for about $19 (includes shipping)! I was SO impressed with it!

(It's 8X6 in real life)
I'm ordering my 3rd copy today because my relatives keep taking it.
Anyway, I decided to enter one of my photos in the Crazy Days of Summer Photo Challenge at Live and Love... Outloud which, by the way, ends tomorrow (in case you're interested in entering).
What about you? Did you get inspired by anything new (or old) this summer? As summer ends, and winter approaches I'm challenging myself to save time for creativity - no matter where I am or what the season. I hope you will too!
Have a great day!


  1. What a great collection of photos! Thank you so much for joining Alicia and me in the Crazy Days of Summer "Sweet Summer Finale". You've been entered for a chance to win an amazing $200 photography and scrapbooking prize pack. It's just our way of saying thanks... Have a great day. :)

  2. Your trip looks amazing!! Every single photo is beautiful. I only made it to Lake Michigan for the first time this summer. We made a trip to Chicago a few weeks ago and went to Navy Pier. We had a beautiful view of the lake from there. Thanks for sharing! Visiting from Crazy Days of Summer.

  3. Great tip! And BEAUTIFUL photos you picked to summarize your summer. LOVE that first one. I really need to make an album too. Thanks for joining the Crazy Days of Summer Finale!
