Scrappin Roots Blog Hop

UPDATED SUNDAY, January 23rd

Happy Saturday and welcome to the Scrappin Roots Blog Hop hosted by Erin of SpantastiKreations.  We're going back to were it all began for most of us --- Layouts.  Everyone on the hop today has created a one or two page layout to inspire you. 

If you just happened upon my blog and haven't had a chance to begin at the beginning start HERE.  I promise you'll enjoy the wonderful projects that the ladies have created.  There is some great talent here.

I created a two page layout about our trip to the birthplace of Booker T. Washington in Moneta, VA.  It was a very educational and peace trip.  The kids really enjoyed themselves.  I actually followed a sketch created by Melin over at Cooking With Cricut.  In fact, why don't you stop on by and join in the challenge. 



The quotes say, "One man cannot hold another man down in a ditch without remaining down in the ditch with him.  Few things can help an individual more than to place responsibility on him, and to let him know that you trust him."





RECIPE

paper - We R Memory Keepers
tags from Tag, Bags, and More Cricut Cartridge
flowers cut at varying sizes from the
font from Gypsy Font Cricut Cartridge
photo mats cut using paper from the Recollections collection
white gel pen
raindrops created using recipe found at Kinderstampo
buttons
Tea Dye Distress Ink
homemade glimmer mist

Head on over to Christina at Crafting with Christina and feast your eyes on her creations.

Iv'e been a follower for a while now..love your blog! I also love your Lo. It looks like a wonderful day sharing a truly great man with the kids. I love the journaling too. When I was a girl, I got a book about great men and women who changed the world and read about Mr. Washington for the first time. If ever there was a man, or person whose life and words could inspire greatness, it was him. TFS!

Glitter Fantasies said...

I hope you see this...I am just getting into using my own glimmer mist (esp for flowers) what trick do you use to keep them flat? Only way I know is to actually use my heat gun to dry them..And the pages were wonderful!!! And of course I loved all the flowers!!!
TFS Glad you had a wonderful time, I remember every vacation, every moment of them with my children who are now grown.
