Another wave of gorgeous summer books just swam into Shutterfly Gallery, and I’m grateful because they let me ride with that summer feeling a little bit longer. Don’t we all need more summer fun now that school is starting and the Fall weather is waiting in the wings?
The title of Day at Deception Pass by Debbie Speed caught my attention right away, and although I want my sunny days to last a little longer, I love the mysterious thrill in those foggy images. This book makes me want to take a trip to Washington State.
Italy 2009 June by AnikoD4 is an excellent way to escape. The two gondolas on the cover grabbed my attention right away, and when I opened the book I was entranced by the details of the streets and bridges and antique buildings, plus all the fun images of the family at play in town and on the beach.
Nesser1981’s June 2009 does a great job of capturing the everyday moments of the summer experience. The digiscrapping is nice and playful, which gets me into that summer mood, and I love all the blow-up pool shots with the kids in the back yard. Nice surprise at the end, too, with those gorgeous images of Washington DC.
Trip 2009 byChristaS31 caught my imagination, because it was all about the classic motorcycle road trip. This adventurous husband and wife team drove through three states to meet with other motorcycle enthusiasts in Cedar Rapids Iowa. Like Christa says – they rode, they saw, and they conquered, with many exciting adventures along the way (including a ride along Route 66 and encountering a dramatic thunder storm!).
