Wildcat Hills Nature Center

I've used my November Counterfeit Kit for today's layout.  I started by trimming down the flower paper and distressing the edges. After the layout was all put together I decided I wanted the drawn lines around the edges so that was added everything was done.


I die cut a couple of the leaves for each layout and added them with a button.  The border punch is from my stash and was pre punched.

 
I really like the texture that the embossing folder added to the layout.  I cut around one of the medallions from the edge punch and backed the button with it.  I stamped the Recollections Arrow, cut it out and in half then added it to each of the pages. 
 
 
My journaling on the back reads:
We had some time until we need to be at the cemetery, so Dad and Jerry suggested a ride through the WildCat Hills. We got out at one of the look outs and talked abut the changes that have occurred while we were gone. One of the things I can remember is  going on picnic's with Grandma Jessie here.

Great color palette here that really works for your photos - and I love those little die-cut leaves you've anchored with buttons.
