Slither & slide

We're starting a 'Use Your Stash' crop today at Scrap Central. I'm pretty happy to be using stuff I've already got on my shelves.  There's way too much of it!  Bad, bad scrapbook shopper.
This is the layout I did to go with my first challenge...

The photo is of Breanna's friend from this summer.  She spotted a little garter snake slithering through the grass while we were camped on the Peace River.  I wouldn't have picked it up but, of course, the kids don't have the same inhibitions.  They packed him around for a while before releasing him back to the wilds.

I used
  1. Paper Loft papers
  2. EK Success embellishments (the envelopes)
  3. Maya Rds rub-ons
  4. Skeleton leaf
  5. Making Memories alpha rubons (now i remember why they're still in my stash and not used up.  Grrrr!)
It should be a fun weekend cropping with the ladies and whittling away at my stash.

Love the natural colours you chose.

Ya you wouldn't find me picking up a snake either no matter how small.

Beautiful layout - but I'm not sure I'd have the guts to pick up a snake even that small. Eeeks!
