Cross Over the River

 "Let us cross over the river, and rest under the shade trees"--Stonewall Jackson's last words.

Last week I met with other members of the West Virginia Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics board at Stonewall Jackson State Park.  The park is named in the confederate generals honor and the boat we rode that evening was named after his horse, Little Sorrel.  I missed my husband, yet enjoyed the scenery and planning with my colleagues from around the state.

The shells were ones Bob gathered for me from the Shenandoah River, as "potential scrapbooking material"  (he calls it PSM).

I added my journaling, title and a digital overlay to the cardstock, printed it and added my pictures, paper, netting and a little "Make it Stone" sand spray. 

I loved the title quote I found on Wikipedia while doing a little research for my page.

Here's a picture of the board members (that's me in the center with the brown ruffled top).  Thanks to the facilitator for offering to take a picture.  As you may of guessed, I am the affiliate's historian.

Your quote couldn't be more perfect for your pictures. Your details are wonderful. You're the historian, huh? Did I ever tell you I'm related to Stonewall Jackson? My six-great aunt, was also his aunt.
