Play Day at Forest Falls

Time to Play in the Water
Summertime in Southern California usually means dips in the pool and surfing at the beach. 
But, this summer we found a new cooling off spot right here in our local mountains. 
Forest Falls has waterfalls, creeks, pools and streams already to get wet in. 

 This fits right into this weeks H2H challenge: Water Fun. 
This layout is a new one featured in the soon to be released new Fall/Winter Idea Book. 
The Paper Pack is called Clementine and the layout pattern is 
featured in our new How to Program: Make It From Your Heart.
 Left page shows Ashley posing under some rocks next to a waterfall. 
The heart is made with our new burlap ribbon and some 
burlap strips are added for some natural texture.
Right page show the running creek and Ashley posing by a waterfall.
If you have a cool water place that you like to play in share with us at H2H.
