Project 12 June Sketch - By Becky Fleck
Here is my submission for June's Project 12 Sketch hosted by Scrapbook & Cards Today, and Davinie.  My entry is late, but alas, I am still caught up! The colors are all funky in the photo.  Hopefully if you enlarge it it will look better!

I also saved my 2-page layout photo as a 4x6 - hopefully you can 'see' it!  If not, please click on it to enlarge!

Products Used:
Base Card Stock: Kraft Cardstock - Stampin' Up

Patterned Papers:  I used my July Midnight Rooster Kit for most of the papers used (Collage Press Knave of Hearts Collection; Prima Marketing Pastiche Collection, American Crafts Botanique, and Pink Paisley Queen Bee Collection). 
Embellishments:  American Craft 'Flat' Patterned Thickers (also from my Midnight Rooster kit), K&Co Alphas (Wood Grain), Lace (also from Midnight Rooster Kit), Cub Scout Sticker Title & sticker emblem (K&Co Boy Scouts of America Kit), Time to Together journal strip (Studio Calico), and Jenni Bowlin Rubons (Ranch Life, lines above and below). 

Fun Technique: My Stamped and chalked 'Created' Patterned Paper:  I did not have 2 sheets of the gorgeous Collage Press 'Clouds' patterned paper you see on the left page, so I created a 2nd page to 'match' at best I could.  What I used was: My new Hero Arts Vertical Clouds Stamp, Versamark, and Pebbles Inc, chalks.   ** I loved doing this! **

Things to Share
Journaling:  Our summers are crazy!  Baby lambs, calves, chickens.  Working at the Farmers' Markets in Pendleton, Portland, La Grande and Boise. Irrigating. School just ends.  No real social life.  The weather was cold all month! Grandma Pat came! Great thunderstorms. Jake had Scout Camp. The kids wanted to sleep in the tent, a bit nippy.  And then there are the views.  I wouldn't give it up for any city life!  As hectic and crazy as it is.  We still have it good!

Photo descriptions:  (I see I neglected to put these on the pages!):
Left Page:
1. Ernest, out watching Dick moving cattle (one of my absolute favorites!  Ernest is retired, and he often just gets to watch.)
2.  Photo of our cattle in one of the fields caught on my morning walk.  I love the sky, the trees, the field, the cows!
Right Page:
1. Jake holding the rain maker he made at camp (and wearing his 'safe the earth recycle my sister' shirt!)
2. Jake, Grandma Pat (my mom), and Sami.

OK!  That's a wrap!  Thanks so much for visiting!

Hi, Andi! Terrific layout! Love, love, LOVE the photo of the border collie in the grass! And I like the Scout fleur de lis symbol that you used to make your own embellishment. Very creative! :-)
