Breath Taking layout and Garage Sale Finds

I've been having a lot of fun playing at Birds of a Feather Crop! I have gotten a couple layouts and a couple cards done! Wahoo! Chris has been fantastic at keeping the kids entertained and their needs met so I could scrap away! :-)

One of the challenges at the BOAF crop was to scrap a photo of an inanimate object! :-0 I had to think hard about this one. When I was thumbing through my photos I came across a few photos I have been putting off. It just so happens, the sketch worked perfect for the photos. Karen told me about the Pretty Little Studio. They post a sketch on their blog and I decided to play along with it.
I LOVE this Crate Paper line! The papers and die cuts seemed to go well with the pictures.
I scored and sanded a line around the edges to give it a little umph. The brown circle is attached to my journaling spot.

These photos were taken the day we hiked to the top of Haystack to spread my Grandpa's ashes. This is where we spread my Grandma, Aunt and Uncles ashes here and this is where I hope to have my ashes spread. Its so beautiful up there. Its quite a bit of a hike, but so well worth it! The lower photo is showing a lot of my Grandfathers land that has been in the family for over 150 years. This land holds so much history.

Don't f0rget I am participating in this next week:

I was able to get out and garage sale a bit Friday and Saturday. I found a few games for 75 cents each!
I LOVE Uno and its been years since I've played! Peyton seemed to enjoy it so I see lots of Uno in our future.
This game was BRAND NEW! :-0 Peyton has had a blast with it and it will be perfect for Chris's family reunion coming up in a few weekends.
This was a fun game too. We played it quite a few times.

I found a few other things too. I was very excited to find a 3-wheeled Princess scooter with a basket on front. And for only $3! Maddy LOVES her 'princess' scooter! A chalk board to alter for my scrap space, a pair of really nice black Levi dress pants for Maddy for a buck. Some other odds and ends too!

I'm still hoping to hit a good garage garage sale that has clothes for both kids. I haven't had much luck in the clothes area so far this year!

I'd love to hear what you were up too this weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!
