PPC Specialty Ch. #8 - Snow Lake Hiking Layout

Good morning to everyone!!  I have a sick kiddo and had internet connection problems last night... so I am hoping my day can only get better!!  So far so good... as I am chatting to all of you!
Today over at Picture Perfect Creations...crafty challenges we have a FUN and EASY Specialty challenge for you!! 
Simply create any kind of project using 2 Ribbons and 3 Buttons.
I took the opportunity to create a Scrap Layout.  This is a picture of my DH and DD in 2004 on our hike to Snow Lake in the Cascade Mountains.  6 miles of steep incline, rocks and switchbacks... and he carried her the whole time!  It was also 88 degrees and MUGGY.  I'm surprised we actually did this... but I guess we were younger (ha) and we were determined to see the end result.  This photo doesn't do the scenery justice... but daughter is happy as a clam!!  She just got to sit back and ride along.


My Taffeta Ribbon and Baker's Twine are my 2 "ribbon" choices and then I have 1 button in the center of my ribbon bow and 2 buttons tacking down the left part of my title. 

I followed Sketch 7.14 from Sketchy Thursdays this week!!  I am loving their sketches lately. My title and the overall layout is sort of "Enlarged" from the original sketch... but you get the idea.


I will be adding a 2nd page to this layout... for I have lots of fun pictures and more of a story to tell.  So be on the lookout for that soon!!

Come on over and join us for PPC Specialty Ch 8 this week.  Any sort of crafty project allowed!!  As long as it has 2 ribbons and 3 buttons on it somewhere!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Sorry to hear you have a sick one at home Michele, sure hope they get over it soon. Your layout is marvelous!! My hubby and I hauled our oldest one around like that up and down the hills of San Fransisco...so I know what you're talking about!!!!
