In the Grain


Here is a page I loved making...  I was mulling over the subject of my Trends on Tuesday post over at A Trip Down Memory Lane and decided on woodgrain, and then thought I really ought to go all out on wood (not sure what it would end up looking like!).  I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by my page!

My kids obliged me with a lovely shot in front of a beautiful log wall when we were out, and I decided to carry the logs on for the mount around the photo.  I punched 1" circles and then distressed the edges and used a white gel pen for the grain (the paper is Crate's Farmhouse collection).  I added a Simple Stories bingo card, and then some of the Farmhouse stickers and some burlap too.  The alphas are a mix of some woodgrain thickers I picked up on my holiday and a prima pack, I also included some journalling behind the photo.  I had decided the title for my post before I did the page - which was in the grain....and then it turned out to be a great page title too...as the journalling looks at some of the similarities my kids have to me and my husband (like both of our parents reckon both of them look like us when we were kids :) makes me smile every time as I look nothing like my husband!! so I guess they are both a good mixture) and how my eldest gets cold in swimming pools quickly like me and my youngest doesn't...in fact like his father he could wear shorts all year around!
