Life on the farm

Now there is something not many of you would know about me... I grew up on a farm. And I loved every minute of it. This layout is all about how I miss the farm and 'the simple life'. The photo is my cousin and I. I'm the little one on the left. :)
I've used October Afternoon 'Fly a Kite' pattern papers, OA 'Farm Fresh' word stickers and OA Mini Market alpha stickers. The little windmill is from Scrap FX and the lace is from Kaisercraft. Al products used are available from "Handmade by Suzanne"
And a card I've made with the left over pattern papers and some more Kaisercraft lace, Green Tara paper string and that little tag is from Kaisercraft's 'paper tags and shapes'. These little tags are made to be used with the 'tag' and 'sentiments' stamps. How cool is that?
I hope you are all having a great weekend. Until next time. :)

Nothing beats farm life! :)
Marlize this layout is just gorgeous and the pic of you and your cousin is such a beautiful reminder of how happy we were when life was a wee bit simpler. The windmill and picket fence are too cute! TFS!
