Memories from the Past

 My brother and I did a two day trip to see part of the Route 66 sights in Illinois this week.   We found out it's going to take more time to see it all, so another two day trip will happen in a few weeks to finish the Illinois portion of Route 66.

But this is the sight I saw as we were driving home in Missouri last night. Growing up in the 50's, 60's and even 70's in Missouri this was a common sight in Missouri to see old barn roofs painted with advertising and in Missouri we saw lots of Mermec Caverns, so it was fun to see a restored roof painting again.  So glad I was able to get a few good pictures as we drove by in the car, and then extra special as there was the beginning of a pretty sunset in the background.

I am entering this in two challenge, first the sketch I used at  "SKETCH N SCRAP".

Then I am also entering this week's Tic-Tac-Toe challenge at "LASTING MEMORIES",  I did a diagonal BIRD, TREE, FLOWER.


  1. Great patterned papers, and I love the tree embellishment! Thanks for playing along with another tic-tac-toe challenge at Lasting Memories.

  2. Cute layout! I really like the little wooden pieces. Thanks for playing along at Lasting Memories!
