Gold Fever

Hello everyone! I have been so busy this last month! It was nice to finally get back home and get a project going. In the past month we...went gold mining at Cache Creek, fishing in Kenai, bought a 2nd 4 wheeler, went on a porker run on the 4 wheelers, drove to Valdez, picked salmonberries, picked blueberries, stayed in Valdez for 16 days, fished in Valdez, attended Valdez Gold Rush Days, went on a historic homes of Valdez walking tour, drove home, got the kids ready for school made salmonberry jelly and finally sent the kids back to school! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh and I am sure there are things in there I forgot lol. So when asked to make a project with the theme of 'What I did on my summer vacation' I had lots of things to chose from. But I picked one and ran with it.

Picked out the paper. All this paper is from my K&Co super stack

Created my own paper gold pan

Printed out 3 fun pictures from gold mining and added 'gold' to my pan

Cut out some blue and gold glittery words, stars and circles from a piece of DCWV cardstock

Added in a few strips of polka dotty paper and called it good as gold ;)
