Farm Chicks

Happy March!  Over at "Picture This" we have a new fun challenge!  A mood board! 

To celebrate this time of nature waking up to life, we have for you a fun "Spotty mood board". You can use the colour palette, the spots or the general impression of the board to inspire you to create - please, make sure that in your post you tell us which element(s) exactly inspired your project.

I created a layout using two photos from me and my sister, Lianne's childhood.  Every summer our family would go to Pennsylvania to visit our Great-Grandma and our Aunt Pauline.  They lived on a farm where there was a cow, a lot of land and deer .  Great-Grandma  cooked and kept the house warm with  a coal burning stove. Every day she went down with her bucket to the basement, to gather some coal for the day.  We would have fresh corn on the cob every day, so  the whole house would smell like corn all the time!  Another memory I have of her is, every night she would light a Hurricane oil lamp that she would burn all night long.  I also remember  they had an outhouse and even though they put in a bathroom in the house, Great-Grandma and Aunt Pauline preferred to go outdoors.  They both lived very long and healthy lives.  Great memories.

I hope I have inspired you to create a memory of your own using our fun Spotty Mood Board!
