1st Buck'in Shot

Yes, Erica got her first buck in one shot.
Not only in one shot, but with her first shot.

This is her first year of hunting and we are very proud of her. She has been well trained and, as a lot of northern women do, hunts for sustenance not sport.

I loved working on this layout. I was able to incorporate a bit of the woods into my page with the use of birch bark and kept things 'earthy' with cork patterned paper, some jute and a wooden flourish.

The sketch for this layout came from Stuck?! sketches and was designed by site owner Laura Whitaker. Stuck?! will be releasing another single-page sketch on the 15th. Watch for it.

I just knew this sketch would work for my photos. The open space at the bottom is what suggested to me that I dig out those pieces of dried birch bark.

I've been away from scrapping for a bit but with my trusty mentor, and amazing friend, Danie encouraging me, I've got the bug again. I guess we all take some away time from our projects but fortunately that urge to create always resurfaces.
