1st Tractor Ride

Good Morning and I hope you are all having a fine day today, I wanted to get this post done before I really dive into the paper work for my tax appointment later today.
The layout is about Zachys first tractor ride on the big gold tractors :) Our Minneapolis-Moline tractors is always a favorite with the grand kids and the kids in general big or small, but this was Zachy's 1st time for a ride and smiles galore from all the adults but shoot I don't think we got any from Zach other than a half smile.
The layout came from my Counterfeit kit from Jan or maybe it was Nov, but either way it's a done deal.
The left side of the layout was all about Dad and Son on the Tractor. The tractor is Gold and Red so I kept my color scheme the same. I used stickers from the Simple Stories Harvest Lane sticker sheet at various spots on the layout.
The right side holds pictures of Zachy with Pappy and Grammy :) Pappy was well pleased to take the grandson for a ride and I was having fun holding him up on my tractor for a photo op, he was enjoying the steering wheel and playing with it saying brrmm brrmmm. More of the stickers scattered around

the die cuts on both of these pictures were from the Country Life cricut cartridge with shadow. I fussy cut the girl off the tractor. I'm seeing I did forget to add the red stickles for the center of the wheel rims yet.

the photo mat for the photo of me with Zach was from a sheet of a variety of different images to cut out and this was a post card style cut thought it was a cute vintage style mat

The title was created with the letters from the sticker sheet that I added to a piece of Creative Memories cardstock I had in my stash and I cut it to give it a pennant look.
this will be for the journaling I have to do yet, need to look it up in my journal to get the right feeling into it and the date.
the photo mat for the top photo was a sheet of a variety of different images to cut out and this was a Polaroid style cut.
So I have one more layout to do for this album WOW I can't believe I'm nearly done with this project working on it now 2 years and I think. With all the Big Picture Classes (Starting a new one today Before You Story more to come on that) and The Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog that I have to thank them for helping me through this project. Plus I want to do the 10 min card challenge yet and then I can say I killed the kit :)
Thanks a bunch for stopping by my little corner of the world today and I hope you have a fantastic day :)
