Summer Road Trip 2017: Crater of Diamonds State Park
I started the Road Trip by driving to Arkansas for a conference. After the conference I started driving west and my first stop was at the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Murfreesboro, Arkansas. This is the only place in the world where the public can dig for diamonds on the surface of the ground.
I spent about 2 hours in the hot sun digging up and sifting rocks. Sadly to say I did not find a diamond, but I did come back with some small colored stones. Some people near 2 me found two very small diamonds while I was there.
This was a fun spread to put together. I chose a rock theme for the spread. The bottom picture on the left hand page is of my sift tray and bucket as I was looking for diamonds. You can tell that it was getting to be near the end of the day by the length of the shadows on the ground.
I cut the miner out using my Cricut machine, and I thought that it was fun that I cut the pants out of a denim paper pad. The bag on the right hand page was a souvenir bag that I bought in the gift shop, and I sewed it onto the page using my sewing machine. The brochures from the experience were then placed inside of the bad so that they can be pulled out to be read.
