Collecting Rocks

I had a nice conversation with my dad when I was asking what they were really doing in this photo. He is pretty sure he was collecting them to edge a garden he'd created. Funny, cause he still collects rocks to make rock walls (and he's made some fabulous ones). He also told me that he got that wagon for Christmas during the war. It was a big deal, because it was really hard to find a metal wagon most kids got wooden ones. His parents must have gotten lucky.

 

Thanks for looking!

What great colors to use with that sepia photo. Your dad must have been a very ambitious child. Such wonderful shades of brown & the small leaves are a very nice touch.

Gotta love the collectors of pretty rocks (and seashells). Awesome page, April. The photo is just adorable. You've been an inspiration to me in getting my collection of heirloom photos out and creating presentations. Having a great time with it.

Gorgeous layout. I love the story of the rocks, and really love the whole design. I may need to scraplift it!. Sepia print, gold stripes, embellishments, patterns, and yet it's calm and attractive. Well done.

The warm colors of your layout drew me in, then I saw that adorable photo. What a great snapshot! I love your design and that wonderful mix of patterns. The torn edges are inspired: they give some bright color to the deeper tones. Beautiful layout!

A group after my own heart (rock collecting, lol) - although I've never built a wall with mine. Very handsome page! I like the wonderful balance of the larger cluster/corner with the smaller one up top.
