Water Receding Layout

Hi you all, I'm back again with another layout :) Yep the end of the month and I got to get these posted and to the right challenge. This layout came about from LOAD18: Story: Tell of a crisis you have been through Product/technique: Use a dark background Image: Where weather is a feature. This layout fits all 3 parts of the prompt. I had started a new theme album this month with a layout about the Flood from Ivan in 2004. The title page has been done for a future challenge so you will see that at a later date. But this is the next 2 pages of the album about the water receding:
I took a single page sketch and used it for both sides for a 2 page layout. I used my current counterfeit kit, one of the fall theme kits. The sketch I used was from Scrap Much?: Sketch-y Friday with Team A | October 16 2015:
 The only addition I did was add another photo to the top corner on both pages. My journaling ended up on the 2nd page where the title was to be from the sketch. So the pages mirror each other.
 The left hand page: Shows the water receding and what we saw when we took a chance to look around. We had to come down from the railroad tracks to get to as the water still covered the driveway.
The right hand page: Shows alot of what we saw walking around the property. In the top corner picture all the way back in the field was what was left of the skid of pumpkins that we had in front of the garage.
 The title work I added dark grey washi tape under the lettering to get it to pop more. Fun sticker I found and wood veneers to finish it off. I also had done some inking to cover up the design on the paper but luckly the photos covered it up but you can see the ink peaking out.
 The bottom corner layering work
The journaling tag that explains the details.
 A closer shoot of the pictures on this side of the layout
This side also has some added layering Where the today sticker is you can see in the photo the water line of how high it was out back. We started losing room in the house to bring thing up from the basement so we thought that piling stuff on the picnic table would not get effected. Some did and some didn't as is seen from the water line.
This I think is going to make an interesting scrapbook. We had to take lots and lots of pictures for the insurance company and after about 7 or 8 rolls it got pretty spendy because we had to get double sets too. This helped us in 2004 to decide to buy our first digital camera. This will also provide and idea to future generations of some of the real life we do deal with, something that wasn't capture in 1972 during Agnes that left some old memories for me and at one time we had lots of paperclippings but were not found when I went through Mom's stuff.  Thanks for stopping by once again today
