2012 drought layout

Good Morning!

I did a layout following My Scraps and More's sketch #12.

The sketch...

When I first looked at the sketch, I thought Great, an easy sketch to follow, I won't be using my expression just a paper cutter.  I was SO wrong, however I can honestly say I'm glad I was!  I LOVE how this LO turned out.  I used my K&Company paper by Tim Coffey, Travel-Voyage, which is great fishing/water papers (even though my LO is about the drought!)  I used Paper Trimmings cartridge for the frame, cut at 5 and Art Nouveau for the cattails cut at 4.  I used the circle frame for StuckOnUSketches challenge using a wreath die cut around your picture.

My take on My Scraps and More's sketch...

A close up of my journaling and photo frame... (you can click on the image to make it bigger)

I should have taken a photo of us hosing my son off outside before we would let him come in the house!  It was so gross!!  One of these days I would do a LO on my photos from the flood we had a few years ago, where the water was over the piers!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
