Who Tells Your Story?

Welcome! We made it into March, and it's snowing again!  Yes, it is winter, yet peaks of daffodil leaves are popping up all around!  Yay! 😊 When the roads are not ice covered it's nice to get out and explore!  When they are, create! 
If you do not tell your story, who will?  A wonderful gift to give loved ones is time.  When those special moments have come and gone, how joyful it is to page through memory books and reminiscence.  💝

So, on this snowy winter day, I've selected a few photos from last summer.  😎

Little day trips are such a fun way to see and discover things that we often miss that are so near.  Whether going off alone or with others, near or far, these outings are worth noting. I created this layout with a visit we had last autumn to a nearby state park in mind. 

On this particular visit, we enjoyed our walk/easy hike through the area, noting the beautiful surroundings and flora, history, and amazingly, the bison.  They were actually in view!!! There were mature ones and calves--in view--close to the fence.  Wow!  Previous visits, whether with the whole family or not we NEVER saw any of the resident bison, so this page truly deserves an AWESOME title!  

This layout is created using the super fun Something Fierce Paper Collection along with its coordinating Complements and  Cardstock.   During March, when you purchase one paper pack, you can purchase another at 1/2 off!  Woo Hoo!  

Flip Flaps were also used so I could add additional photos and the story of our visit.  Your story is important, so be certain to include it with your photos and treasured memories.  💝

The incredibly versatile You Are Here Cricut collection was used to quickly cut the compass, explore and journey sentiments.  This collection has hundreds of images and three sets of coordinating stamps!  You'll use this over and over again!  The stamps fit into shapes you can cut with this collection.  Woo Hoo!
