Taking The Road Less Traveled

Another {quick} layout on our Back Roads Tour
I had purchased these Ontario Papers a while back from THE SCRAPPING TURTLE ...and was just waiting for the perfect pics to come along.

On our 'Great Adventure' to the cottage {My Dad&Step-Ma's place} we made many fun road stops - at different 'village' signs, had the kids JUMP OUT and point, like they were visiting some amazing place, small parks, trails and other {relatively} local sites that we never take the time to explore...
{BUCK-O has just learned to 'Armpit Fart' here... luckily this does NOT happen as frequently anymore}
I used the KREAXION'S FISH {koi} PUNCH to create this small border and layered it on top of a scalloped border made with this CIRCLE CUTTER.
I marked our 'from here to there' with the heads of two pins and some red thread... I love that paper. {lol}
 Have a HAPPY Day!

    1. Thanks Lisa! I was so excited when I came found it! I mean how many papers are out there with SMALL TOWN ONTARIO on it!

  2. Hysterical picture! I like how you arranged the photos...the action in the photos almost seems to be popping off the page because of where and how you added embellishments.
