2 Sketches

You'll be proud, I actually got done with my 2 Sketches challenge of the week...I've been slacking on them lately and miss it! I used all My Mind's Eye Paper, Melissa Frances rub on, Martha Stewart ribbon, Stickles, and Making Memories pin. My Mind's Eye has new paper that takes me breath away! It is AMAZING!

Now I want to share a few pictures with you. I've been off on vacation this week, so Hubby and I took a road trip. We went to visit the Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill, Kentucky. It a beautiful historic trip full of great photo opportunities. Click on the name to check out their website. I also got in some GREAT scrapbook supply shopping, yippee! Found some wonderful stuff.
OK, now back to my pictures. This first one is the view when your walking thru the village. It was early in the morning and just beautiful.

This picture is of an ox and a little sheep lying next to it. I love the look on their faces, so cute!

Hope everyone has had a wonderful Easter weekend! I've got to go to sleep early tonite because in the morning is Sunrise Service at Church at 6AM. It is my favorite service of the entire year, we watch the sun rise and have a special meeting in honor of Jesus raising from the dead early Easter morning. It has so much meaning and always such a Blessing.
Hope you enjoy my card:)

Love the card. Did you know there is a big scrapbook retreat that takes place yearly at Shaker Villiage. I haven't been before, but know some people who have and they love it... I love sunrise service too. We always have an Easter play at church!

Lovely card, even more lovely are the Shaker photographs, what lovely cards they would make :o)
Thank you for stopping by my blog and you lovely comment. As for doing a tutorial on how to decoupage my own photgraphs, I'm afraid I wouldn't know where to start, I just print 3 or 4 times, cut out and stick together with silicone glue :o)

Lovely card and pictures, Amber! I especially love the one with the ox and sheep. Feels like a peace I don't get much of these hard working days.
