Scrap The Boys

Getting dirty...yep that is this months challenge over at Scrap the Boys.
Once I saw this I had the perfect photo I wanted to use of my dad.
This photo is a special one to me, I don't have many photos of dad and the few I do have I treasure. Mum captured this when dad was trying to dig out his bogged tractor, and boy was it bogged by the looks of this.
Part of the criteria is to get inspiration from your photo, mine can from all the layers of mud that the tractor has sunk in. So on my page I added lots of layers and distressing. I am very please with the way this turned out.
I used: Papers: Chatterbox, GCD Studios, Adorn it, Cosmo Cricket, Little Yellow Bicycle & Fancy Pants, black cardstock, A Piece of Cake button, old book page, Ruby Rock-it die cut narrative, Lil Davis rubber tab, journaling spot, string, Memory Greeting rubons, SEI rubons, Tim Holz Ideaology mask, mists, Adorn it sticker, 7 Gypsies stickers, buttons and thread.
