Live on Toomer's Corner!!!

Toomer's corner Oak Tree - poisoned and unlikely to survive.

Auburn wins a game, the tradition is everyone heads down to Toomer's Corner where the old Oak tree gets rolled. Toomer's Drug store on the corner sells the best Lemon Ade!

I hardly ever get a scrappy idea in my head but the other day, this popped in my head and I just had to do something. There are many ways I could have scrapped this...but for today, I chose to have a live tree with paper on it - to remember all the good times my husband and I had there together, celebrating victories.

I used Plantin Schoolbook and My Community for this project. The AU border is a 12x12 piece of paper cut just to show 1row of the AU. I still need to cut "Toomer's" and "2011" but I wanted you to see what my idea is...I added these with Photoshop. Sorry not enough time in the day - hubby had to work late, my son had a report to do about George Washington and I had to work a little after I picked the kids up from school.
You can't tell, but the navy paper in the background is dry embossed with what looks like "Swiss Dots" but I bought it from my LSS and I don't know who made it.
I hope you like, I have new ideas for another tree project, but it is not as pretty :-(
