Trees Trees & more Trees

   KRAFT PLUS ONE August Challenge
I loved this months mood board as trees play a BIG part in our families lives!  Our oldest Grandson Blake LOVED climbing trees when he was a young fellow!  Didn't matter how tall it was up he would go!  My husband LOVES hugging trees too and we have many may photos of him in the act from all over the world!!  
Anyways I decided on one of both Blake and his little sister Jayde trying to keep up with his climbing adventure!!
I loved the green and kraft together and in particular the piece of thin wood veneer I had in my stash!  The photo does not do it justice!! It is the piece under the photo and green photo mount!
I enjoyed the fussy cutting of leaves and also the embossing of the branches and heart!   Don't you just love watching the change in the medium when you emboss!!
You may not notice but the piece of printed paper is out of a dictionary and it is T for TREE!!!

I had a couple of more photos that I really wanted to scrap too so it was an opportunity to do a double page layout!  The photos are of my first two grandchildren Black and Jayde outside a house we used to call Jimanji House!! It reminded us of the movie and I think you might be able to tell by Blake's face he wasn't too keen on turning his back on the house!!!
This cute little owl is something I made at a recent Make n Take day and is one of Fiona's creations at
Fi's Scrapbooking & Craft Supplies

Can't wait to see what Kraft + has in store for next moths challenge!
