Hiya! I hope everyone is having a good week. I have been busy trying to get all my projects for my monthly cartridge challenge done before the month ends. Tossing in a few Easter projects into the mix this month has put me a tad behind schedule.
So a little background info on this project: I live in Tinley Park, IL. One of its two claims to fame is that we have been awarded the title: "The Best Place in America to Raise a Family." (Big whoop! LOL) Anyway, with that being said, we have A LOT of parks in town. The powers that be gotta keep improving the town so we can maintain our title. XD
My Family has a goal to play in every playground in Tinley Park. (We estimate there to be at least 50!) We have already played at quite a few. I have taken pictures at each one so far, so we can make a scrapbook about our quest. This is the title page for that book.
This project also uses TWO carts from my Monthly challenge: My Community and Cupcake-Lite. WooHoo! I love two for one projects!
Here is a close up of the trees. I cut the base layer twice and then hand cut the tree tops out and embossed them using Swiss Dots, and Vintage Wallpaper Folders
Recipe for layout:
