This little mini album is a work of heart that I created for a challenge between the wonderfully creative ladies on The Crafty Scrapper Design Team.
The subject of the little album is Echo Hills Farm and a few of the experiences that I had at my grandparents' place in the country.
This pull out file was perfect for remembering the kinds of fruits and vegetables that were grown in Dandad's garden.
There was a plethora of love put into creating this mini album, as these were some of the best days of my childhood.
The photos on this page were taken of me when I was just a few weeks old and later at about five months, being held by my parents. They were taken at the farm.
Here I am at two and then about nine.
There was never a lack of fun activities. I was always fishing for crawdads or for fish, riding horses, climbing trees, building forts in the hayloft of the barn, or just exploring in the woods.
I have my father and mother to thank for saving these wonderful photos throughout the years. What treasured memories they represent!
Techniques used were painting, inking, masking, embossing and doodling. Texture was added, using modeling paste and a stencil.
Products used for this project are October Afternoon papers and embellies, Maya Road embellies, Prima flowers and other finds from my stash.
