auf dem Land

Good morning scrapbooking fans!  Today I have a tribute to my daughter's Oma and Opa to share.  Both grandparents have past since the taking of this picture.  This was Oma's golden confirmation anniversary back in 1990. 

 The title of this layout is "auf dem Land".  They worked a family farm which has been handed down through the generations for nearly two hundred years.  
 The Color Room has a new color palette which was perfect for this layout.

 I thought this dairy farm receipt was a perfect note card to record events of the day.  I am not a very wordy person.  lol!
 The blue from this palette is found in the string that pulls the page back.

 Artastic's challenge this month was for us to use wood and/or a feather. 
The hinges are made of wood and left untouched to give a rustic feel and the feather is beside the bird cage.

Thank you so much for stopping by to see what the papers are saying today.  Your visits are always a bright spot in my day.
