Gifford Farm layout

Tanner took a field trip with his preschool class last spring to Gifford Farm.  I am working on paring down the number of photos I put in his scrapbook as I tend to take way too many!!  Here are the top 7 photos!

I used Cherry Limeaid for the font.  I use Heritage for the windmill and the barn & tractor on the next page.  I used Old West for the wagon wheel.  In the photo, I put the wagon wheel right over the one on the cart.  I used it to ground the three photos together.  I cut out the windmill in red and silver with the intent of creating a layer, but ended up just gluing the silver on top of the red.  The boot and cowboy hat were cut out from scrapbook paper.

In this layout you can see the paper.  It came from a paper pad called All About Boys (I think) and I found it at Michaels.   
There was no shadow feature for the barn, so I cut out a second barn in black and used Hide Contour to hide all of the inside cuts.  In order to ground the barn with the photo mat, I used two different greens from my scrap pile to create this fringed grass.  I inked them with a brown stamp pad.
I am working hard at using some of my non-go to carts!!!

Oh, Lori, this is so cute!!! You're really good because I don't think I'd be able to pare down the pictures; I'd be trying to stuff them all in there and ruin the appearance of the book!!! One reason I have a difficult time getting started scrapping, because I want ALL the pictures to be seen in one place!!! LOL!!!

Lori, I think it's wonderful how you were able to use several carts, get cretive with the fringe grass and use the hide contour feature to create your barn!

Well how did I miss this cute page? Love it and did you know I spent every summer on a dairy farm while growing up. I think every child should have this experience as it was fun and see look at your guys... they had a ball I bet.
