The Farmers of Yore

Time to do some archiving again. I instructed Angela to take an allergy pill as we were about to descend into the dusty caverns where we store the ancient photographs (I still haven't gotten around to hiring those house gnomes). The Lady Commander and I found some old pictures of our parents playing around on our Grandmother's farm circa 1976 and thought they would go nicely with the farm paper we had recently procured.

For this super simple layout, we cut the phrase and the cow from Country Life. Then we went outside and broke some twigs off a nearby tree and adhered them to the page. Nothing like using actual nature to enhance the outdoorsy pictures. This earned us +39 nature elemental magic points. My sister also had some metal snaps in her random box of beads and buttons, so we used those as the truck wheels.

This farm layout will be entered into the following challenge:

Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge #32: Around the Farm 
 
Judging from these old photographs, it would appear our parental units are not the agriculturalists our forefathers were. We have added this page to the ancient, worn tome and carefully returned it until the next time we will be indexing the records.
