a little leland lady

When I received the new Farm Fresh Scraps from Crafty Secrets, I just fell in love with their whimsy and charm. Not really being a country girl myself, I was struggling with finding the perfect picture to showcase their bright colors. Then, one night at the library, an amazing woman brought in pictures of her past to show some of our patrons. Donna is our school's secretary and has lived in our small community of Leland her entire life. She enchanted us with her stories of long ago that night....describing our little town like only she can. I asked her if I could use a picture of her with her mother, sister, brother, and family goat to help inspire this layout. I am so happy she agreed. I am very lucky to have Donna in my life and I think I can speak on behalf of the entire community - we all are truly blessed. She is the heart of our little school and I am honored to share a little bit of her with all of you!

Notice my husband's denim jeans are getting a real workout. Try stamping your images on different textures and layering to create a little dimension on your stamped images!

Donna is the first little girl in her line of sibling - isn't she sweet?
