My Monkey...

Not long after we moved into our home, we planted some trees in the backyard. Many of them didn't make it that first year and had to be replaced, but the Maple we planted in the center of the backyard thrived. Today, I am impressed with how tall it's grown in just 6 or 7 years. Kevin is really starting to enjoy the Maple.Sometimes I'll look out into the backyard and panic because I can't see him. Then, he'll peek out from INSIDE the tree to let me know he's still there. The photos of Kevin in the tree make me smile every time I see them. So, when I received them in my photo order, I couldn't wait to scrapbook them to document this memory.

(Products used - Jillibean Soup papers, Pebbles felt tree accents, American Crafts Thickers)

Now I have this memory documented for Kevin, too.


Happy Scrappin'!

We planted a Silver Maple in our front yard & it grew like crazy. Within about 8 year we ended up having to cut it down because it got so big that part of it was growing on the side of the bank & leaning towards tehe house.
