Gone fishin

I made this scrapbook page for some great pictures we took last year when we went home (my home) to Arkansas and my dad took us fishing.  The kids LOVED it!  My poor seven year old still remembers that she didn't get a fish which she brought up when she saw the page!  We, of course, were doing catch and release.  My dad even caught a fish and tried to trick her and let her 'catch' it, but it didn't work.  It was the one that got away!  I don't know who was more upset my, then, 6 year old or my dad!  He tries his best to make everything perfect. 

My mom does her part!  I usually gain 3 pounds from her cooking when we visit!!! 

Oh, and I haven't forgotten about my cricut challenge!  Letter E:  Everyday Paper Dolls is the cart I used for the little fisher, the fish, and the water.  I used Cindy Loo cartridge for the letters.

I also used the Cuttlebug and Tiny Bubbles embossing folder on the 'water'.

Thanks so much for checking in today!
