Experiencing Pioneer Life
Elements and Tiny Explore are two of my very favorite sets to use and were absolutely perfect for these pictures I had of my son, Matthew, when he went on TREK two summers ago – – a church activity that gives the youth a chance to push and pull handcarts and work together to reach their goal, experiencing a little of what their pioneer ancestors went through when coming west.
I wanted to create a wagon wheel and a trail for my border, and I was pretty excited when I pulled out my Rings and Tiny Explore and found that they worked perfectly to create the wagon wheel. I threaded Happy Trails right through it and layered the title right on top of the trail. It was a quick and easy border that fit my pictures perfectly!-Debbie Budge
The rest of the layout came together pretty quickly. I added some arrows and gears and all my favorite pictures, then I simply followed the other basic steps of the Play-To-Create process: trace, cut, ink, replace! I love how it turned out. It is such a fun memory for Matthew and I’m so happy I could capture it in this layout. He came home tired, sweaty, and dirty, but he was so happy that he went! Definitely an experience worth having!
