This page was done using a lot of different settings with my Cricut. For details go to The paper is Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety. Three Fiskars border punches were used on the right side. One edge of each photo was done with a Martha Stewart punch. I-Kandee chalk, the Earth Tone set was used to color in the yellows. The clip is from an old Provo Craft African set.

The journaling: Juanita, Kyle’s neighbor, is shucking dried corn. It was grown and harvested on the small farm where she and her husband, Miguel, live. The kernels can be taken to a mill with an electric grinder although it is commonly done by hand. The meal is made into tortillas which are served at every meal. Nica women can turn out a stack of perfectly round tortillas in less time than it takes to walk to the dairy case and get to the cash register in a U.S. grocery store.

Juanita is a sweetheart, a great cook and makes excellent tortillas. She is amazing at making do with what is on hand. She and Miguel raised five children and now are the primary care-givers to two of their grandchildren.
