Fun at the Fort

What a great time we had visiting our son Greg and his wife Michelle in Minneapolis.  Our son Chris went with us, driving over 1000 miles to visit.  They were perfect hosts.  On Saturday we visited historic Fort Snelling.

Established in the early 1820s, Fort Snelling was built to protect fur trade.  Chris and Greg joined right in on laundry detail.  Michelle studied the costume stitchery.  Bob loved the military history through World War II.  I enjoyed being together as a family.  June 2013

The scalloped semi circles are from a Caribou Coffee napkin:

The boys left me at a Hobby Lobby while they went to Best Buy.  That's when I found the feather stencil, and it wasn't in the scrapbook section!  I knew I could make use of it.

Back to work tomorrow. . . yet I'm thriving on the family time we enjoyed this past week!

stencil work is fab! You'll have to tell me where you found it in HL....you are one heck of a traveler! Seeing what you scrap reminds me to pick up unique bits and pieces when I travel "just in case" I can use them later :):)
