More Pages From Our Missouri Trip

Here are some more pages from our Missouri trip using the Picture My Life cards from Close to My Heart.  This set is called Surf's Up.  The first 6 pages are from our trip to Bridal Cave, and I thought the colors went really well with the cave pix.

The first pic is the one that the cave operators take of every group to sell you at the end.  This is the cover page designed to go with the set.

This is the back of the cover page.  Haven't decided what I'm going to do with it yet...

Here are some pix of the inside of the cave and the formations.  I love caves!

I'm not sure why it's called Bridal Cave, but people actually do get married down here, in front of a lovely curtain-type formation.

It's right on the lake, and you can go down to the docks.  When you turn around, you see the big sign.

Here are some pix of us by the lake, and the last of the cave formation pix.  The one in the lower left is my favorite.  Those formations are called "soda straws", and they are so pretty and delicate.

These are some pix I got of a great blue heron at our campground.  He really showed off for us.

Random pix of our trip--just filling in slots!

The one in the lower left here is from a scenic overlook near Bridal Cave.  That gorgeous tree was right near our campsite.

Some of my favorite pix from our nature trail walk.  I'm probably going to do more with these, but for now they're in here.

I have to say, I like the Picture My Life system a lot more than I thought I would.  It's very fast, and kind of fun--like putting together a puzzle!  And I intersperse the PML pages with my traditional pages, which adds interest, in my opinion.  Most importantly, it gets the pix out there to be looked at, instead of hiding on the computer!

Thanks for dropping by today!  Have a great day!
