One Summer Day Moving Hay

In the summer of DS tenth year, DH deemed son mature enough to drive the Ford tractor. DS job was to drive through the hayfield pulling a wagon; DH would load the rolls of hay on the wagon.

This page was created during the 101 Days of Summer Virtual Scrapbooking nights in the VSBN forum on SCS, held this past Friday and Saturday; there were 9 challenges. This is Challenge 5 or 101DOSE -"Event of the Summer" from strongcanadianbeauty - TRISH. Her challenge was to use at least 3 photos (could be on one page or a double page layout) from a summer event but the more photos the merrier!!

Here's my page:
The 12 x 12 base is SU! Wild Wasabi; the photos are matted using a blue from my stash. The numeral - "1" - is a SU! sticky cut with Blue Suede dust bunnies...ah hum...FUN FLOCK from Stampendous. Moving hay is what we do in one summer morning AND it was DS first time driving a tractor. It was just something different. I had a really hard time with this title.

Journaling was created using Comic Sans font in MS Word, printed on PTI White. Title was die cut using Sizzix Lollipop alpha and SU! Prestwick. You may remember this plaid from the John Deere Combine double page layout. I ran the letters through Xyron and attached to the page.

Same products were used on this page. DS is moving along. He didin't have much blacktop to travel on, as it was just a short hop from the hayfield to where we were storing the hay.

I was so proud of him. Things are so much different today than they were five years ago. Even if I knew then what I knew now, I don't know what I would've done differently.

Here's both pages together:

Paper - SU! Wild Wasabi, SU! Prestwick DSP, Blue (unknown), PTI White
Accessories - Sizzix, Sizzix Lollipop Alpha, Xyron, SU! Sticky Cuts, Stampendous Fun Flock in Blue Suede, sticky strip
