Weekend Camping


I made this double page layout using pictures my son sent me over the weekend of this great camping site they went to for 3 nights.     As he described it this "old hippie" owns all this acreage around the lake and is setting up old campers he restored on the inside and panted on the outside for rental campsites.   Plus he has a house he uses as a lodge for room rentals too.    I think he said he is also clearing some of the acreage to make spots for tent camping.    My son was totally impressed with the owner and plans to go there for other camping trips.    It's somewhere between Dallas and Waco, TX.

I did my take of the double page sketch at     "STICK IT DOWN"     for this layout.

Sign Sign Everywhere A Sign


Another layout from part 2 of our Route 66 Road trip through Illinois,  we did two 2-day road trips through Illinois 2 weeks apart.  This was obviously in Girard, IL and our southern part of the trip..

I made this using the June 2023   "SCRAP OUR STASH"   sketch and I included 2 tabs, one tag  and creative title work.  I love this sketch I'm going to keep it and use it again.

The Sign


I've been wanting to scrap this picture.    On my brother and my 2nd Route 66 road trip in Illinois for April started in Springfield, IL.    Where we found this alley way of murals as we were walking back to our car after seeing some sights downtown.    We were taking pictures on both side of the alleyway and I saw this one.   I stopped and called Bruce over and standing in front of it I told him to take my picture.   Of course I could tell how he was aiming the camera for the first picture that he was leaving out the words above the mural.   He laughed and then took a couple of pictures including it all.

I'm entering this layout at  "SCRAP CHALLENGE YOURSELF"  for their June challenge #114 for your favorite song.    My Title "The Sign" is the name of a Foo Fighter song.   It's not my favorite song of theirs but the Foo Fighters is by far my favorite band.

I took the picture of my layout outside, sorry about the glare, you can't read "The Sign"  it says.  

"She is my Sister Whom I Cherish"    this is why I got such a kick out of it when I saw it and had to have my brother take the picture.   We do so many road trips together and finding something like this always adds to the fun we are having.
