Autumn Outing Pages

A couple of weeks ago we had a very enjoyable day out with my parents as a belated anniversary present for them.  We enjoyed a buffet lunch at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville and then browsed the Grovewood galleries beside the Inn.  It had been many years since any of us had been there and they have really added a lot to the Inn.  The food was a delicious as ever.   My Dad loves buffets and you can't get more sumptuous than the Grove Park's.  My friend Karen was planning just such an outing for a group and I used her itinerary for a wonderful day including a visit to the Antique Car Museum.  Mother got in trouble for not reading the sign and touching the cars (big surprise, there :-)  She charmed her way out of her sins and even got to sit in one and have her photo taken.

Project Notes: 
  • Crushed curry cardstock is the perfect yellow with the Indian Summer papers.  To make it fit in with the Basic Grey line, I distressed the outside edges with Vintage Photo distress ink from Ranger.
  • This border was cut on the Cricut.  It is just a circular shaped Wingding character repeated over and over and welded together before cutting.  I did have to use the Multicut feature to get a clean cut on this detail. 
  • I often print my journaling on vellum so I don't completely cover the pretty pattern paper. 
Thanks for visiting today!
