"Old Oaks" Details 7 Dots Studio Tree Challenge

I posted a sneak peek of this layout for Donna Salazar last week. I'm back to share the details.

I used the 7 Dots Studio May/June Challenge for inspiration featuring the gorgeous Cold Country collection along with Thoughts Keeper stamps. This challenge is all about trees. Details for the challenge can be found HERE. We took a vacation to Florida this spring and I was captivated by the live oak trees on the grounds of the St. Augustine Lighthouse. These ancient trees have so much character, and I enjoyed them as much as the delightful Lighthouse.

"This month challenge is about TREES. Trees have amazing energy and many people love to “hug” them or just stay close to them. They give us some shadow during hot days. Trees are the shelter for birds, squirrels and many other animals. Many trees give us wonderful fruits like apples, pears, oranges and many more. Trees produces oxygen that is necessary for every human being. We should love and honour the trees as living part of our planet."

"Old Oaks"


I extended the tree with Dusty Attic chipboard branches
and snippets of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Ribbon.

I've layered Cold Country papers and Elements tags around my photo.
