    On a trip to San Antonio we stoped at the Natural Bridge Caverans. They had a cute little Mining company where you buy a bag of sand and your can sift for semi precious gems and fossils. My son of course picked fossils and at the top of the title is a mesh bag of sharks teeth that he collected. The sharks teeth are all that he was interested in my husband and I kept the quartz and other items.

    I began this page with a river rock page I usually hate these pages(realistic photo pages), but it works really well. The letters were from a punch out page. The rocks all over the page came from a grab bag of Jolees items. I used all of the rocks on the page. I was really happy with the way this page came out..

    Stacy,

    Great LO. I love the way it looks, like a natural scene. My DS loved prospecting for gems at our state fair when he was about 10. He found some nice gems. Wish I had pics of him in action.

    Stacy, great to see you here. I love your lo. You always do such a great job. Would you believe that I've never been to Natural Bridge Caverns? I've seen those signs many times but we've never taken that road.

    Great page. tell that little prospector of yours that he did a great job. Love the rocks and the mesh bag up top. You did such a nice LO it seems like we were all there.

    I have always wanted to do that.... I would have picked gems But then again shark teeth are pretty cool too. My husband would have gone for them. Guess it a guy thing.

    Wonderful job.
