Say Cheese

It's the last day of June so the Crafters of Faith blog group has a little project to share, as we do on the last day of every month. This month Barb is the hostess, which means she got to choose the theme.

Barb's Theme

June is Dairy Month in Wisconsin. I remember when I was growing up there were dairy breakfasts at farms in our area and my 4-H club had a pie and ice cream social every June. Now - I am not sure that everyone has a dairy themed image. But - if you have something farm related - cow, chickens, ducks, barns, fields, etc. or dairy products related - ice cream, cheese, milk, eggs, cream puffs (the Wisconsin State Fair favorite!), or use your own imagination to honor the dairy farmer. Do you have some farm related DSP or an embossing folder? Chicken wire, barbed wire, farm animals, etc. - please be sure to use that.

I hope everyone enjoys creating a card or scrapbook page with a Dairy Farm Theme! Do you have a farm related story from your childhood to also share when you post your card? We would love to read about a favorite memory.

Have Fun - Enjoy the Challenge! Thanks - Barb

I actually have quite a few farm related items in my stash of toys, but I decided to go with CHEESE! I used a Whipper Snapper stamp (they're from Wisconsin, you know) called The Big Cheese.

I went with a very CAS layout - and for once, I actually like the CAS card I created. (I usually don't.)

Memories to share? I guess my fondest farm-related memories all center around time spent with my grandparents (they were farmers). They dabbled in a little bit of everything on their farms - a few dairy cows, hogs, hay, crops, chickens, etc. There was always something to explore and chores to help with when we visited, though I suspect I was probably not much help. My favorite time of day was when the dairy truck came to collect the milk from the large milk cans. I liked that best because the driver always gave my sister and I a Kraft caramel or two. YUM!

Thanks for stopping  by my blog today! Be sure and stop by the other Crafters of Faith blogs to see what they made, okay? You'll find the links to their blogs in my left sidebar.
