At the Park

I'm a little late trying to join the Fall 2012 Blow Out Your Stash Challenges over at Studio Calico, so just now completed the first one, which was pick a kit and use the DT gallery for inspiration! That's right up my alley!

I chose this month's kit, Central High, because as soon as I saw the newest DT member, Amy Tan's first layout, I just loved it and knew I wanted to do a scraplift of it!

This picture is from my trip to visit with my cousins in Indiana back in May! We went back to our old family reunion site of long ago, Turkey Run State Park and hiked the same trails we used to when we were little! The park is GORGEous with all its woods, trails, and GORGEs haha! We had a lovely day there!

As a side note: I asked my husband Chris what he thought of my page (I do this after every page), and he said, "I like it, but it's not your best..." and even though I agreed, I was like "oh really?" and he replied "Even Michael Jordan didn't shoot a triple-double every game." HAHA! Thanks Coach Chris! :)

P.P.S... This is my 100th post to this blog!!

  • I used the Central High kit by Studio Calico
  • I cut around the foliage from the piece of paper called Nutmeg "Memories" Tapestry paper from the Indie Chic collection by My Mind's Eye
  • The green striped background paper is called Leaf Large Dot from the Dots & Stripes collection by Echo Park Paper Co
  • I used up the entire little roll of exclusive ribbon from Studio Calico and American Crafts to make the sun's rays
  • The sun die cut is from Studio Calico
  • The "Meet me in the sunshine" sticker, the letter stickers (Everyday Thickers), and the rest of the die cuts (bits) are from the newest Amy Tangerine line, Ready Set Go by American Crafts - how fitting then, to scraplift Amy's layout using her product!
  • Finally, I wanted to add another little pop of color so the rainbowish strip below the photo, is from a Tim & Beck exclusive for Studio Calico
