Lasting Memories- Country Charm

How was your week? Did you get a chance to enjoy the countryside?

This week at Lasting Memories we are celebrating Country Charm! Use Country Colors and a Charm!
I  used pictures of the boys at Gatlinburg and even incorporated the theme into my title.

Tip: I had a hard time getting papers to coordinate because the white seemed to harsh. So I inked all the white with Antique Linen Distress Ink and it solved the problem. I also purposely did not sew the border straight because I wanted to give it more of a country look.

Cardstock and Paper: My Mind's Eye Lost & Found 3, Bazzill Cinder, Bo Bunny Country Garden, Nikki Sivils Hiking Trails, Nikki Sivils Summer Lemonade

Embellishments: My Mind's Eye love Enamel Dots, Maya Road Little Birdies Clip, Maya Road Vintage Wood Butterfly,Freckled Fawn Mustache Washi Tape
Stickers; Fancy Pants Hopscotch

Ink: Antique Linen Distress Ink

Adhesive: Glue Glider Pro, Zots

One Stop Craft Challenges: Summer Colors
Our Creative Corner: Captured Memories
Rhedd and Rosie Challenge: Here Comes Summer
Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Pin It
