This is my elder daughter and me at YMCA Camp Takatoka on a good old camp gelding named Patches. The year is 1983, Beth is almost 2, and it's her first time on the back of a horse.
There wasn't such a thing as riding helmets back in the day. It would never occur to me to put a child on a horse without one today, much less put the child on the horse riding double WITH me. Neither idea is safe, but back then, we just didn't know any better, so we did it.
When I taught my first Master Technique series for my LSS, I did a "show and tell" project along with my students so they could see how paper gutting, wet distress, mica powders, and paper bag flowers went together.
I didn't do all the steps to the MT project -- you can see that one on my "Porch Swing" layout. But this one is done enough to be done without any more fuss, so I'm calling it done and putting it in Beth's album so it's off my desk.
