Santini Market

This past March my husband and I spent the month in Fort Myers Beach Florida and right across the street from our condo their was a market. Every morning I walked over and got fresh fruits and veggies. The grapefruits were so sweet and juicy!!

To make my layout I used the Park Drive collection by Webster's Pages which I got from Scrapbook Memories and More.

To see how to re-create this layout check out this blog post and just scroll down a bit.

Here are photos of both sides so you can see it a bit better.
