Country Mile by Ponytails Designs

Walking a "country mile" evokes images of long, winding paths, roads less traveled, and circuitous routes. Country miles are much longer than regular ol' miles, since they wander along through valleys, over hills, and around bends. Sometimes our journeys are emotional or spiritual rather than physical. Whatever the case may be, when we walk a country mile we are taking a road less traveled. We aren't getting to our destination in a straight line, by the shortest route. Our path has turns and the view isn't always clear, but in the end the journey is much more worth the while. Slow down a little and enjoy your own country mile and don't forget to enjoy the scenery along the way! A Country Mile brings to mind the old, slightly dusty feel of a country road from days-gone-by. Jam-packed full of elements and patterns with a slightly shabby look, this kit will transport you right back to that favorite spot on the old family farm... maybe it's Grandma's kitchen, or the swimming hole, or some secret spot in a field somewhere? Where will your County Mile take you? ponytails_acm_preview   ponytails_acm_blog

Queen Wild Scraps has a new template set releasing today, Not So Simple. There are lots of photo spots, so these are perfect for events and vacations where you have a lot of photos. They're also perfect if you're like me and take a ton of photos and can't make up your mind which photos to scrap. You could also fill some of the photo spots with some pretty papers you want to show off.
