Great Grandma's tractor

Good morning!

It is bittersweet for me to share this layout with you today. It is one of my very last Jillibean Soup projects after being on the team there for more than two years. It was so much fun while it lasted!

We had the chance to stop and visit Matt's grandma in Fountain Green, Utah while on our road trip this summer.  it is always nice to stop and visit and we know that these trips might be few and far between these days as we live far away and she is getting older.

Grandma Rasmussen lives in a nice big house that backs up to farmer's fields where sheep are very commonly found roaming. We got to visit the sheep who quickly ran away as we approached. After seeing the sheep we thought it would be fun to take pictures on the big old tractor in the backyard. I converted the pic to black and white and paired it with Jillibean Soup's Grandma's Lima Bean Soup collection to make this layout:

I used another Jillibean Studio cut file for the heart background and filled some spaces with patterned paper. 

It's going to be another busy day today with visits, laundry, taking care of a sick kiddo and then taking cupcakes to school for another one's birthday. I hope that you have a great day!

Sounds like it was a busy day. Hope all the kids feel better. Emma got sick thurs from 4 year shots. Hate when they are sick.

This is a precious LO and memory. Those hearts are adorable. Perfect last LO!!
