Love You More - Challenge #2 CKCB

Hello my friends!
Today I have a LO for Challenge #2 over 
at the CKCB for November.

Challenge #2: "A Walk in the Woods
In the fall, we often take long walks in the woods 
to enjoy the crisp air 
and turning of the leaves. 
For this challenge, let the forest be your inspiration. 
Create a project inspired by the woods."

Challenge accepted! :)

When I read the challenge I KNEW the pictures I would go to.
Last summer my family and I went on vacation to
We hiked, camped and hiked some more in this
incredibly awe inspiring place.
My husband and I went on honeymoon to Yellowstone,
the summer after we were married in September 1998.
It was glorious!
So to take our grandson on such an amazing trip
was amazing.  
We are planning to go again soon,
maybe even this summer ;)

This is a picture of my husband on the day
him and I snuck away and went into the
back country.  What an amazing day it was too!!

For this LO I found a birch tree cut file,
and knew I had to use it!  

Ashli Oliver (AKA Soaphouse Mama) 
uses a technique in her art journaling that I incorporated 
here on my page with wonderful results.

I have taken all of Ashli's courses and learn valuable lessons
from each one.  So if you ever are looking for a 
class well worth the money, 
do check out my dear friend right here.

The Technique: 
She writes directly on her page, but not
in any organized fashion.
She just writes what appears to be words,
but in an artsy way.
I did that here with my white Signo pen between
the birch trees.  
I love the result SO much!
It gives so much interest to this LO.
Thanks Ashli for the GREAT tip!

And the journaling is tucked away on that little tag
 at the top of the picture.  

I have a cut file from Felicity Jane
that I LOVE SO MUCH!!!  

And so I laid it on my page and I LOVE IT!!

This page was so much fun to make.  
I did add just a couple things from my FJ kit as well
like the "Remember Today" title and wood veneer heart.
I like combining kits too.

Have a Super Blessed day
and thanks for stopping by,
