Last year I took my grand daughters on a little vacation to the Oregon coast.  While on our way we stopped to visit relatives along the way.  This is my nephew and his wife's horses.  My oldest grand daughter loves horse but had really never rode one.  When Bill and Jan offered to give her a ride, she was so excited.  On the way home from our trip I asked each girl what they enjoyed most.  Ruth had no hesitation to say the highlight of the entire trip was riding Patches.  I thank Bill and Jan for not only being very gracious hosts, but for being so kind and making this such a special event for my grand daughters.  You are both awesome!!!

For this layout I used way too many pps!  It seems way busy to me but Ruth liked it and that is what is important.  I used my newest MS punch for the borders.  The sketch and inspiration came from LS.  The two tags in the pocket have photos on them as well as hidden journaling.  I did ink all the edges and of course had to use stickles!  The lettering and flourishes were cut with my CE.  I am really enjoying the Cricut Craft Room and learning how to use the cricut better.  Thank you so much for stopping by.  Hugs to you all and God bless.
