For over a year the Reed family has been talking about building some sort of playground/tree house/fort for all the grand-kids to play on while they are at Chapel Hill with the Grandparents. We finally decided to build a platform out in the wood line but still visible from the house. They could have a rope ladder, a rope swing, and other fun items to play on. Over the last 3 months the clearing of all the underbrush, bugs, small tress and such has been taking place bu in Feb 2012 we finally broke ground and put in the 4 posts for the Tree Fort. My son Morgan has been tickled pink about this whole process. He spent days taking about all the things he could do and put onto the Fort. He drew plans and talked non stop about the entire process. Funny part was, when it came time to do the first part of building, he staying inside with Grandma and not outside (I think he felt he did not have enough to do and got bored). Brandon on the other hand, stayed out almost the entire time watching and playing around, he loved it!!
I made this for Frosted Designs, the challenge is to use recycled/upcycled materials in your projects. I used a piece of cardboard box that some of my scrappy stuff came to me in the mail. I hope you pop on over and play along!!
I got to use the wonderful papers and alphas from Momenta. I used their Great Outdoors paper pack to created this entire layout.
