RRD: Give Praise To Him

Hi All,

Today, I have a scrapbook page to share.  I used the new release "Give Praise To Him" and the patterned cardstock Willoughby.

The pictures from our trip to Tennessee at the end of April.  Diane and Mom picked up up at the Nashville airport then we stopped at Cheekwood to see the botanical gardens, have lunch and then tour the art museum on the property.  

The mansion was the home of Leslie Cheek Sr. and Mabel Wood.  The Cheek family started Maxwell House Coffee.  Sadly, Mr Cheek died in 1935, 2 years after the family moved in.  In 1960, Cheekwood was opened to the pubic as a fine art center and botanical garden. 

These pictures were taken on the terrace off the second floor ballroom, somewhat a panoramic view of the private garden.  It was stunning.
The ribbon is from the Willoughby collection.  I used Burnt Umber Palette ink to stamp the tree on the Kraft die cut (Label 16).  The Cheekwood logo was from the tour brochure.

A couple more picture of lunch at Cheekwood - it was SO good...
 Fried Green Tomato Salad
 Chicken salad with sweet potato fries - Yum
