On the Farm

Well... I am a day later than I planned posting this, but the good news is... I am finally getting it posted!! I have to tell you, the top picture of this LO is one of my all time favorites of my daughter (Lauren) with my dad. My dad grew up on a farm and even though he was not a 'farmer' when I was growing up, I was brought up like he was! We had a massive garden, did all the canning and freezing of veggies, and had a list of chores daily. The only thing that we didn't have were the cows!! A few years ago, my dad's company picnic was at a local farm so he and my mother took the grandchildren with them... you know... to show them off!! While they were there, Lauren had a chance to drive the tractor and my dad got on with her. My mother (who takes as many pictures as I do) snapped this photo and I treasure it. My dad looks so happy and he was able to share a little of himself that day with the grandchildren. Lauren, and all my children, are soooo lucky to have such incredible grandparents... I remind them daily!!

The sketch I used for this comes from Pratical Scrappers this week. As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew it would be perfect for these photos! The papers are from the kit I ordered from the Poppy Paper Kit Co. Most of the embellishments came from that kit too. I added a brad from Spare Parts and the metal heart came from Memory Makers. I also used the kit for the post below this one... Berry Pickin'. Cricut: Cuttin' Up, Wild Card, Give a Hoot

As always, thanks for stopping by and looking at my LO. I love being able to share a little bit of my life a LO at a time!! Barb  :)

What a fun layout, Barb!! The paper and embellies compliment you photos beautifully!! It just warms my heart to see photos like these, with more rural subdivisions and new businesses going up, I feel like the farm life is slowly dying away!! And that makes me sad!! You have created a precious memory of a wonderful time she shared with her grandparents that she will treasure forever!! XXXX
