Ah. Summ-ah tiiiiiiime! I am all too excited for some outdoorsy adventures that are coming up! We found an amazing camp ground about 20 minutes away from my house.. We are already planning our first trip up there soon to do some hiking, have lunch, etc. And if I get brave enough.. pitch a tent and stay the night, but.. I am deathly scared of anything wanting to eat me.. and I gotta say, I look pretty tasty. All this white meat aged for 30 years (does that make me more of a ‘jerky?’).. LOL! Bears, mountain lions.. GAH. Life was so much easier when I was a child and would go camping and not even sleep in a tent.. Pssssh.. Give me a sleeping bag and a 3pk of Twinkies and I was SET… yes, Twinkies. I ALWAYS had to have Twinkies when we went camping, lol. But now I am a mom… and as a mom I realize that the world is a scary place with icky creatures lurking around. Maybe I watch too much Animal Planet… I dunno. But I definitely need to warm up to the idea of sleeping in a tent with my babies….. Trying to coax my hubby into buying an RV is not working too well right now… not even with freshly baked cookies. He’s a tough one, that hubby of mine.
What about you all?… are you brave enough to sleep under the stars.. in a tent?… Or send the family off to camp while you go to a spa vacation? lol.
Even if you’re not an outdoorsy type, something tells me you will still want to get your hands on this fantastic new collection from Echo Park, Happy Camper. The colors and patterns and very cool.. And the element stickers?! Umm, hello cute fox!.. The deer?.. i.die. SO CUTE.. even the bear has a little place in my heart. If only all bears were made of paper and just 1.5″ tall.
Seeing the preview of this collection I knew right away I was going to make this tee-pee from SVG Cuts’ Camp Smore kit! It came out totally cute with the Happy Camper collection! I made a little ‘scene’ for it.. and now it’s the timeline banner for Echo Park’s Facebook page!
Here it is.. I hope you brought goodies for s’mores.. if not. I will leave you for the bears.
I thought to make a little fire, etc, but that was just getting too crazy. But if YOU are the crazy crafter type, have at it! Add a camper, fire.. a live skunk, etc… Maybe a 3pk of Twinkies.. ha!
The tee-pee is actually a little gift box! I am just a bone head and didn’t take a photo of it with the top off, but you can see it HERE on the SVG Cuts website.
There’s that fox!… After my Twinkies I’m sure!
OK, friends! I’m off! I have a lot of blog posts I am behind on that I need to get up.. hoping SOON. I’ve been very quiet and busy. I am in the middle of a custody case right now and it’s taking it’s toll on me… the most mentally exhausting and emotional thing I’ve been through, really. I’m not going to spill my details all over my blog though… It’s almost over with so hopefully I will quickly jump back into my happy crafty self soon.
Take it easy!
