Rusty Pickle- Old McDonald

Today is upload day for half the DT over at the Cropper's Cottage. This month we received the Rusty Pickle Old McDonald papers and I admit that I was truly stumped on how to use them at first, but I got inspired when I pulled out Ben's old albums (he grew up on a farm.)

For this first layout, the journaling says, "Ben at the age of 8, taking care of his cow for show. I love the look of concentration on his face. As he says now...this was serious business. Notice also his moccasins...he made them himself. September, 1971

In the file folder is a copy of the newspaper clipping that shows he placed 2nd with his cow.


For this second layout, Ben is about 3 or 4 and just the cutest little thing. The journaling says: "Muddy, Ben's grandmother, staged this photo for a newspaper competition. She wanted to show off how cute this little guy was. So she set him up in a corner field with a stick and his grandfather's kerchief to make it look like he was running away."


For this final layout, when I saw this wonderful camouflage paper, I knew that it was absolutely perfect for Jacob. This layout is a lift from Heidi Swapp's newest book and the layout includes a lot of her product also. The journaling says: "This photo is so Jacob- as he is today. I was taking some photos of him reading and he finally gave in and looked at me. I love this kid so much and I want to always remember the way that he looks today. March 27, 2007"


All these fun new Rusty Pickle products can be found over at the Cropper's Cottage Store.smiles,
