Howe Caverns

Howe Caverns is a great place to visit.  It is located in central New York.  Here is the LINK.   i have been there a couple of times.  This photo is from our visit in 2002, when my college kids were in elementary school.  I used a circle stencil with some lavender paint.  Then I inked my page suing stamps.  I added a few cardboard buttons, some gems, and a key.  I made a title with a flowery ticket.  The photo of my son was from the back as he is looking into the cave.   


This layout has been entered into the following challenges:

More Easter 2003



This month at Pixels and Paper we are celebrating Easter with this cute inspiration image.  Your page certainly doesn't have to be about chocolate or bunnies, it can be about family gatherings, school Easter hat parades, egg hunts, trips away over this holiday period, fun things you did with the kids, whatever you like really - just don't forget to tell us what inspired you from our photograph.
The criteria is Easter.

Here is what I created:
