Fun @ the farm

Some old photos of DS at my parents farm. Two weeks later a tornado hit the farm destroying everything except their home. That's the reason for the trees in the layout - there aren't any there anymore. I used a challenge from al a carte to come up with this one. They asked you to choose 3 items from the following menu ( I chose #1, 2 & 4):
1. Use an ampersand, dollar sign, or other symbol in your title.
2. Use three shades of green.
3. Use a silver, gold, or brass embellishment.
4. Use a tree.
5. Use stamping as your background.
6. Use book print or an actual page from a book.

Nurture your Mind

Oldest DS's first day of school a couple of weeks ago. He's in gr. 7 and it's scary how time has flown! I did this page for this week's challenge at Scrapping Out Loud where they asked you to use a quote for your title, and in addition to your quote to use only one part of speech in your journaling. Your journaling needs to be all nouns, all adjectives, all verbs, all interjections, all adverbs, all prepositions, or all pronouns. Now that is a challenge!
While looking through my journalling spots, I saw this and thought it would be great for a back to school page and lo and behold, I've had this Colorbok page kit for awhile and it matched perfectly. Too bad the colors look even more muted in this post than in real life.
I also used this week's sketch at Creative Scrappers, I just replaced the circle with a star and flipped the title & the journalling around.

DD during gymnastics class. It didn't take us long to realize this wasn't the sport for her. She loved the social aspect of it, but she's not a gymnast!! I used a sketch from Let's Scrap for this one and a bunch of really old supplies.

Hollywood Studios

A double pager of various photos from Hollywood Studios. I used a sketch from Let's Scrap and the current combo from Color Combos Galore. I got 13 photos on here and a ton of journalling!
