Grandpa's Boat

I followed the SOUS (Stuck On U Sketches) sketch from Friday for this layout. It also meets the requirements for the Practical Scrappers challenge of using patterned paper. Again, I found the sketch challenging for me as I need to "boy it down", but I am enjoying challenging myself and stepping out of my box!!

It is hard to see, but I wrote my journal around the circle.

This photo was taken last summer on our annual vacation in the Ozarks. I take a photo of my boys every year (since 1998) in my dad's boat. Technically, the boat now belongs to my brothers - but to me it will always be my dad's....

We have so many great memories from our annual Ozarks vacation!

Lori, such a nice layout! The guys should be thrilled about it! Sketches are a challenge for me too, so I usually avoid them -- you did a great job!

I'll be seeing you!

Great job with the sketch! love how you arranged the papers...what a wonderful tradition of taking these photos! I love that.
Some sketches seem to go ok with me, others are bad! LOL! Guess thats why we call them a "challenge"!

We stay at a resort (the same one we stayed in when we were kids) at Mile Marker 11 on the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri - Lone Oak Pointe Resort. The lake has changed over the years, but the memories are precious!!
