Lincoln Logs

Max and Evan LOVE Lincoln Logs. They got these awesome sets from Pa and G-ma for Christmas. It's a Yukon Express set that builds 5 little cabins, a train track, and even has a train with figures. They each got a set so we've been having nothing but fun with them. I was going through my paper stash yesterday when I sat down to scrap these and was shocked when I had only bought 1 sheet of each of the patterned paper that I used. I ALWAYS buy 4 sheets of any paper that I buy. I don't know what could have come over me that would possess me to only buy 1 sheet!!! So, I had to use different papers on each boys' LOs...I don't like to do this but I had no other choice because the one set of paper I bought at an Archivers and the closest A's is almost 2 hours away. Oh well...I finally found 2 sets of patterned papers that worked for both and I'm very happy with both.

I used my Cricut for these pages. I used My World for the Cabin and Trees and Old West for the title. I'm totally loving the fonts on Old West!! Since the cabin didn't come in layers, I cut apart the logs and inked them individually and then re-assembled it. I did lots of inking on everything to bring out the rustic look of the papers. I used a new February sketch from Pagemaps.com.

Here's Max's LO. The papers are all by Cloud 9 Design...Great Outdoors collection. And yes, he was upside down in the bottom photo...he was acting silly.


And here's Evan's LO. The papers are all by Cosmo Cricket...Mr. Campy Happy Trails collection. And yes, Evan is rolling a boulder of snow down the railroad track to smash the oncoming train.
