Fun with Jack

You know how sometimes you look at a paper pack and you think, I like that but I am not sure what I would make with it?  Well, that is what happened to me with this paper.  I liked it, was drawn to it but was having trouble seeing where I wanted to go with it.  Well, I just took it out and started and boy what fun that journey has been.

So here is the paper:

Hop over to my website at www.craftwithronnie.ctmh.com for a better picture of this paper.  Remember, this paper retires at the end of this month so don't wait and miss out.  I decided that this paper was very masculine and I had some pictures (from 20 years ago, I know, no excuse) that still needed to be put on pages.  These pictures was from a family trip (three generations) to June Lake California back in 1997 when our boys were still young.  They always loved it there, so much for a boy to do and oh that trout fishing was just great.  So I got to work, and here are the results...


I did use a cut file for the lake that I had from another cartridge, not sure which one it was.



These mountains and this title are from the Close to My Heart Flower Market Cartridge.  



I just love these trees (also from the Flower Market Cartridge).  I used three of them on the layout and put them all on Thin 3-D Foam Dots to give my pages some dimension.  I also inked all of them using foam daubers.  Be sure to watch for tomorrows post using the Jack paper, and big surprise, it will not be masculine...
