Explore the Simplier Things in Life

Hi you all, hope the weekend is going well for you and your staying cool. Not so good here, lol I mopped the kitchen floor yesterday and I spilled cooking oil on it last night and today I slipped a jar of strawberry jelly that we were canning on it. Guess it just didn't want to stay clean. So into the craftroom I went a bit safer for me :) I did a 2 page layout using the sketch challenge over at Stick it Down:
 This is what I did with it:
out of all the photos I took the diagonal one came out the best so be it. This is from a visit with the Dakota Grandkids in 2012. Jonathon and Jessica wanted to learn how to drive the tractors so Pap showed them. Amber didn't seem to want to so that is why she wasn't in any pictures
The left side:
 Houses the pictures of Pap showing Jonathon how to start the tractor (this one you have to crank it to get it started)
This is the right side:
This one houses the pictures of Pap showing Jessica how to drive the other Z that has an electric start to start it over.
 So I shifted the 3 journal boxes on the sketch to this side so I can use the arrows I had cut out.
 My cluster was more towards the stars that are throughout the layout.
A close up of the picture and the arrows showing the way to the next picture for how to crank start the tractor.
 A close up of the title area, I used words and font for the title
 Added the date to the arrow PL card not sure what kit this is from
 Close up of the pictures on the right side, I flipped the blocks to make the flow of the pictures work better.
 I added this 3x4 card from me & my Big Ideas, for the one block
 The little journal card is a cutout from Ellie's Studio line (this is just about gone :)
Best Day Ever is from Simple Stories 24/7 chipboard die-cuts pack and added another cluster of stars. The papers except the red is from my current counterfeit kit, yep July 1 will be here on Tuesday I have another post that day using the current kit. Didn't kick the kit and I didn't thiink I would being a busy month but I didn't do to bad using most of it up. Need to find more sketches to use up the smaller bits and pieces. For the ones of you that do the Counterfeit kit how are you doing this month, and if you haven't you might want to join in next month it's a fun time :)
