Backyard Campout

Adventure comes in all shapes and sizes and the newest adventure for my 3 1/2 year old was camping in the backyard with dad. They had a blast setting up the tent, then getting all of their sleeping gear out & hauled into the yard. Nolan couldn't do without his blue blankie with the elephants (not to be confused with the blue blankie with the bears - 'there is a difference mom') :)

Believe it or not they made it out there through the entire night and are already talking about future outings.

Please click on the photo to enlarge :)

I crimped some of my papers with the Fiskars paper crimper (shown below). I also cut out star shapes, sprayed them with water, scrunched them and let them dry. Once dry, I unfolded them and inked the edges and the folds.

Items used:
Quick Quotes "Just Jackson" papers
QQ Blue Moon chalking inks
QQ vellum, tags, & corrugated chipboard (I love that stuff)
Fiskars paper crimper
Fiskars scallop punch
Martha Stewart 'Cherish' punch around the page

(Layout design was inspired by a sketch from Sketchy Thursdays. This particular one was from the 6/30 challenge. Check them out when you get a chance!)
