Yard Work Layout for Another Freaking Scrappy

There is a new challenge up at Another Freaking Scrappy that involves scrapping your first job! Here is what Anne has to say:

November 1 challenge
Scrap about your first job.  If you have photos of you from that era, include one, or any other photo that is significant about that time.  Include a bit of journaling if you like of your memories.  Did you like it? Hate it? Were you nervous? 
My Dad hunted down some photos for me doing some work around the house. At any early age I was always included in gardening, yard work, feeding the chickens, and wood cutting. I know as I got older I thought having to "work" pretty darn unfair!

Of course today, I'd much rather be raking than my "real" job! Put me outside and I'm happy!

Here is a close up of my flower and that adorable bird tag that was sent to me from Jean! I changed out the background paper to match a bit better, but other than that, all the elements are just as she sent them to me with a nice little note on the back!

And just a fun paper flower I made up to match. I kinda gave myself a small color pallet to use of that blue, lime green, and burgundy and I'm pleased with the results!

Anyhow, Happy Day before Friday!
