Project 12 - August, 2010 - Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri

August Sketch - Project 12

My Interpretation of the sketch
Ah yes.. Another Project 12 layout!

About Project 12:
Each month Becky Fleck creates a sketch for a 'make a layout once a month' challenge, hosted by Design Team Member, Divinie, over at the Scrapbook and Cards Today Blog.  I'm getting caught up!  This was one of my New Year's Resolutions, if you recall!  Only 2 more to go and I am caught up!

Supplies Used:
CS and little scallop punch: Stampin' Up
Big Scallop Embossing Punch:  EK Success
Patterned Papers: October Afternoon & Cosmo Cricket
Stamp:  Kim Hughes Spring Trees (Cornish Heritage Farms, so sorry they are no longer!)
Ink:  Stampin' Up and Ranger
Embellishments:  Cosmo Cricket and goodies from my Midnight Rooster Kits!

See the Vintage label above my journaling?  It used to say 'Hudson' but I cut it out with a craft knife, and put 'Missouri' in it instead!  Added a little distress ink to try and make it blend better than white.

Journaling Reads:
August 2010
      For our big summer vacation, the kids and I went to Missouri to visit our favorite auntie, Paula!   We flew into St. Louis and had a week of blissful days.  Her apartment was right against a creek. Oh the sounds of the cicadas!  I LOVE the sounds of the insects. The weather was wonderful with just a touch of humidity! 
     We got our school shopping done at Chesterfield, Mall where I used to work when I was in High School! And low and behold, they now have an Arichvers!!! 
     We showed the kids our old home, our schools and the Lake where we played.
      We spent most of the time at Tan Tar A, a Resort at Lake of the Ozarks.  We each had ‘our day of saying what activities we would do.
Jake: Bears Den Arcade
Sami: The Indoor Waterpark
Paula:  Poolside, with cocktails!
Me:  Golfing! 

      We were poolside daily, and had a blast.  We also found outlet stores and Sami was in heaven with a visit to Aeropostale.  And, every single day, we made sure we ate ice-cream.

It sounds like you had a wonderful time and took great pictures to remember the trip.

I would be so overwhelmed with creating two pages and doing these so wonderfully well. Congratulations!

Thanks for stopping by and saying hello:))))))))

Hi, Andi! Gorgeous layout! Very creative to insert Missouri into the vintage label and give it some Distress Ink to blend it. I would have never known that it didn't come that way! Great photos. I especially like the one of you (I think!) enjoying the fresh air on the deck overlooking the water. Cute little road trip car! :-)

Sweeeeeet, Andi! Girl, you got that scrap-thing GOING ONNNNN! Seriously! Did you say "two more" to go! You're my SHERO! Not to mention, that, once again, I felt like I was practically on this vacation WITH you {hope that doesn't sound too stalker-ish of me!}... but with your terrific recounts and then THIS excellent scrap page - I'm all-a-swoony! Excellent L/O + use of that fabby sketch and your WONDERFUL use of outstanding pictures, etc. In a word {or two}.. YOU ROCK!
