SOS Golden Globe Challenge "Master Gardener!"

Happy June everyone!!  June is one of my favorite months! 
Maybe that is because it is my BIRTHDAY month! LOL! 
- But it is also because I am so happy the Summer months have started!  
I am not a fan of winter, and we had a cold and snowy one here in New Jersey this year! 

The June Golden Globe Challenge from the Scrap Our Stash Blog is shown below, and as an added challenge - in honor of Father's Day this month - we ask that you use items from your Stash that begin with each of the letters in the word "FATHER."  All of the details, rules and PRIZE info, along with more inspiration can be found on the SCRAP OUR STASH Blog!

In honor of Father's Day this month, I selected a photo of my wonderful Dad. He is the most amazing gardener!  He devotes so much time, and takes such pride and pleasure in his garden!  I am a very lucky daughter, as we live right next door, and I have my own personal produce stand at my finger tips!!  Although these photos are of some of last year's bounty  - they still make my mouth water for the first "Jersey Tomato" sandwich of the summer!!

Here are the "STASH" Items I used for the word "FATHER" part of the challenge:
F - Flair, Forest Moss Stain
A - Arrow, American Craft
T - Ticket, Twine, Thickers, Tiny Word Stickers
H - Heart, Hemptique
E - Enamel Dots, English Mustard
R - Ranger Distress Stain, Rusty Hinge, Recollections

This is just one day's "bounty" from his garden last year!
I actually purchased the Tomato paper 2 years ago, with a layout of my Dad in mind.  Last summer, I had my Mom take these photos for me, and I am so happy that I was able to finally use it from my stash, and capture this memory of my Dad and his garden!

Here are some close ups for you:

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope I have inspired you to play along with us this month at the Scrap Our Stash Blog!
