My Natural Town

Hi all!
Teri here, and I’m happy to be back the GCD Studios blog today.
Heidi asked us this month to create layout based on our hometown.
She got our minds brewing with this beautful set of pictures.

She asked us:
WHAT makes your town special?
Why do you love living where you live?
What is your favorite thing to do in town?

This was an easy one to do because it worked so well with photos I’ve been compiling all summer long while exploring the outdoor attractions in and near my hometown.
To be 100 percent honest here, I like the outdoors, but I am a couch potato deep down. I will never be the girl signing up for marathon or climbing a mountain. I like simple, easy activities that you don't feel like you had to train to do.
There are a lot of fun outdoor activites in my hometown that are easy to enjoy and take part in. That makes my hometown a good place to live.
This summer, I’ve spent evenings walking through a small forest next to a local lake. I’ve spent many afternoons wandering through local gardens and taking in the scent of the flowers. And I’ve even been one of our waterfalls a couple times, walking up to the top and taking a litany of pictures of the nature seen on the way each time.

Here’s a layout I made with a few pictures from my hometown explorations.

I used a few of the border strips form the Artsy Urban collection. I actually layered pieces together for my layout. I finished it off by adding a number of brads.

That’s all for now. I’ll be back again soon.
