THE RAFT layout for Scrap For Help
All winter, Luke has been carefully hoarding milk jugs and their tops. There was this long story explained to me by a boy about making a raft and floating around Tommy's pond come summer. We dutifully saved jugs out of the recycling until one nice Spring day where he made off with the lot of them on his bike.
I expected a phone call from Tommy's Mom asking why I was sending our trash over to their house. Instead, I got this photo via text. Evidently Tommy's Dad was expecting our trash and helped the boys with their raft.
One of my favorite elements on this page is the little flag on the tooth pick and grape vine squiggles. When the vines die, the little tendrils also dry up and are very cool.
I am linking this up with ScrapForHelp as their challenge this month involves using wood on your layout.
Used a ton of scraps up on this page as you don't need a whole sheet of paper when you are tearing it and tucking it behind the main photo.
The YOU ARE HERE cut out was an idea my daughter had. She suggested putting a bunch of scraps behind it and then I added some glitter glue. I like how it turned out.
Happy Hump Day!
We have a sunny day here, more nice weather for drying cement! My steps are nearly done, tonight we put back the garden and take the forms off. I CANNOT WAIT!
