Gone Fishing

This past summer we spend 2 weeks in Colorado, of course we just had to go fishing!!  We could not have picked a more perfect day, location, moment for the best pictures.  Both of my boys at different times walked over to the side bank and decided to fish there rather than the pier.  Morgan actually caught a little trout.  They were never there at the same time, but they both were in the exact same location, and wow they picked a great location.  The water was so still it acted like a mirror for the sky, just beautiful!! 

Here I also took the striped pennant stamp from Susan K. Weckesser, stamped with brown ink on cream cardstock, cut out each pennant and layered it under the layers of papers and picture, and tied it off with twine to look like a banner.

Among the layers behind the pictures I used "a little bit washi" stamps, "Splatter it" stamps to add dimension with the punched layers.

I love these moments in life, where it all slows down and you just take in nature.  Those simple moments were you just breathe in the fresh air and take it all in.
