Lobster, photos and don't forget!

Hi all! I had to be at work today and for the next 3 days after so am scheduling some posts (I hope!) My pictures aren't great, but this is a clear card that I made to send to the people who own the motel where we stay in Maine. We've gone back to the same place for seven years now and just love it there.
(This card also covers a couple of challenges this week-SCS Dare to Get Dirty had a clear card challenge over the weekend and High Hopes challenge this week is to use sparkle and shine on a card! I covered both sparkle and shine because you can see the sparkle on the lobster, but I also made his black rubber boots shine! (Remember I told you we love lobster? I had nine on our vacation!)
The inside of the card:

Here are a few pictures of the many I took from our trip! I always take lots of scenery! I hate having my picture taken so we end a trip with only one or two of us.
This is the sunrise at the beach where we stay

Below is the most beautiful Portland Head Light just south of Portland, ME and only a 20 minute drive from where we stay. It's gorgeous!

And this is a picture of the pier that is about a half mile beach walk from us. There is a restaurant at the end and lots of little shops as you walk out.

That's it for today, except for the

Wow Cheryl, I love Maine. We stayed in Bar Harbour, it's just as beautiful. Have also been to Bangor to see Stephen Kings house. This card is perfect with the little glittery lobster. He almost looks wet.

I like this card very much, because it remains me to my vacation in New England, 13 years ago. I especially loved Maine with its views to the sea and the lighthouses!

Please forgive me Cheryl!!!
I called you Kerry by mistake. I have been blogging today and I looked at hers before yours!
So ashamed to have made the mistake. Guess the over 100 degree temps are getting to me :o(
