Cedar Gap

I just got back from spending 10 days with my mom in Missouri.  On my last day there, we tried out this little trail near her house.  She lives at the foot of the Ozarks (sorry, I just can't call them mountains as I live at the foot of the Cascades) and the trail takes you to the headwaters of three creeks.  The water was down for the most part, but the forest was beautiful (I am still trying to wrap my brain around a forest with no conifers) and there were many pretty little flowers and butterflies.  I had some cooperative models and got some fun photos of them :)  I love the Tarzan vines all around too!

I decided to use this layout for this week's Sketchy Thursdays sketch.  I had more photos I wanted to use so I made the one photo in the sketch bigger and added the strip at the bottom.  And most of you know that I love 2 page layouts, so I made a second page to go with it!
