Scrapbooking, Tractor Ride

TractorRide1
 
Ahh the warm colors of summer.  I used this color pallet from Scrap Friends as my starting point for this page.  Color challenges are always so tricky for me.  I have particular colors that I like to use and have a difficult time meandering away from them.  Part of it also tends to be that I don't have colors or hues in my stash that the color challenges always seem to want, but the warm colors was one I actually could make do with.
 
I am so happy with how the little pink polka-dot frame.  I traced another frame I had lying around onto some white card stock.  Then I colored it with a pink marker.  Then I took a polka-dot stamp and stamped all around it.  I am so happy with how cute it ended up being.

I also found this cute song challenge at Scrap Your Story.  I knew I just had to add the ee-i-ee-i-oh.  I didn't want to add old McDonald though because it is grandma and grandpa's farm and that would just be too silly.  I also made another vellum shaker and this one came out really well.  These shakers are starting to become an obsession!  I used washi tape to close it off and it worked out really well.  I didn't feel like getting my sewing machine out so I'm glad the washi worked out so well.

This page has some hidden journaling and another photo that I love from our little tractor ride.  I wanted to do a lot more, but my little daughter had a bad tummy bug. So, I didn't have much time or energy left to scrapbook.
