I pretty much shamelessly copied a card she made for her Dad using the same stamp. I have no imagination. Anyway, stolen or not, I still love it. This one's for you, John. Happy 58th birthday.

I was inspired by Ali Edwards' Story Stamp layout using tags. I'm just not at that place yet where I can make a no-photo layout. I've been itching to use my new Ellipse dies from Spellbinders and they "sorta" replicate the tag shape so...there you go. Die cut feathers and an arrow from Tim Holtz. Ali Edwards Get Real Story Stamps stamps used to tell my story. Photos taken in the Badlands last year on my South Dakota trip with Mom.
I hope to get to a point where I'm REALLY telling stories with these inspirational stamps but I'll have to work my way there with baby steps. This is just a trip layout. The story here is that we went in and out of the Badlands National Park numerous times on our way to Wounded Knee. Now THAT'S a story!

I added base pages from Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm and then started looking for yellow things. Pulled out stuff from Common Threads and Down to Earth as well as other items from stash. Added a lot of Wild Honey Distress Ink and voila, a primarily yellow page. Totally out of my usual zone. Attempted a Paperartistsonline challenge to make some clusters as well as using their sketch again. What you see is what you get. And I used the October Story Stamp from Ali Edwards to write my story. Another one done for the books!

I needed a couple more October birthday cards for two important people in my life. My nephew John and my Squirrely friend Farley. I loved this card and these Papertrey Ink Stamps so I had to make one for each of them. After all, they share the same birthday. The sunshine die is from The Stamps of Life. Happy birthday to both of you!!!
