Welcome back to the 2012 Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Today, we continue featuring our winning entries for the 2012 Artisan Design Team Contest with another scrapbook page. If you are following the hop, then you probably arrived from Jeanna Bohanon's blog. Didn't you just love her project! She does some amazing things with My Digital Studio. We'll be featuring our winning projects for 10 days straight.
Here is my sixth project for the hop, the second of three scrapbook pages that I submitted.
This was a fun page to make is it gave me a chance to tell a funny story about my family. We often travel to the Rocky Mountains, and many times to Rocky Mountain National Park in Estes Park, Colorado. It seems that every time we take a picnic lunch to cook and/or eat, the clouds and rain decide to arrive. Over the years, we have had to employ many tactics to avoid the rain and storms. One year, we sat in the car while Dad put aluminum foil over the grill covering it from the rain and waiting for the food to cook. The year pictured on this page, we were able to complete the cooking and most of the eating before we had to pack up and hurry to the car. This day turned into a stormy day complete with lightening, so we couldn't stay outside any longer. If you look closely at the picture in the upper right, you can see my brother with a wrinkled face looking up at the gathering clouds! This story was the first thing to come to mind when I saw that red patterned paper that looks so much like a picnic table cloth! I changed my pictures to black and white so the colors wouldn't clash with the colors of the paper and elements, and I like the way it helped keep the focus on the photos.
