Project For Life..... Week 3

OK..... here's week 3 (I may just be on a roll!!)
This week we went to the farm which is my son's favorite place on earth. Seriously. He wants to move there! He told me the other day he finally figured out what he was saving his money for.... A COMBINE!
So cute!
I'm not sure if clicking on the photos helps to view them any better. Once we're in a different time of year I'll be able to get NATURAL light and hopefully the photos will turn out MUCH better. Right now I'm just trying to take pics without a glare and they are pretty lame. HOWEVER, the book looks spectacular and I know it's something we're going to treasure. I already see the kids coming by and flipping through. My youngest girl sat today and drew a 'dolphin' and said, "Here Mom, you can put my art in your book." *sigh* Of course I will! :)
There is always SO much going on at the farm that to put it down into a few photos for the week was proving IMPOSSIBLE. My son cannot get enough of the horses and DH's cousin is AMAZING. Always showing Joshua and teaching him along the way - horses. So there were many photos I wanted to share. So I went down to Walmart and used one of those Kodak Kiosk machines (my printer refuses to cooperate with me) and used the COLLAGE feature and printed out 4 wallet sized photos per 4x6 page. LOVE that! I made everything SEPIA to keep it neutral. I really like how it turned out. I added a little Maya Road Trees Chipboard as well using Basic Grey design papers to cover.
This is an 8.5x11 page (it's been a long time since I've scrapped that size!) and I'll add a bunch of journalling on the back... just haven't had time to write that up yet.

This last photo is the worst (camera died immediately after taking it... and yes I was too lazy to charge and reshoot)
OK - the house is quiet.... time to get on with week 4 :)
