Never

Never  would have I thought that I would like camping, especially with kids. So I was very shocked when we purchased a trailer and decided to take this on with the kids and guess what, I love it!!! I love sharing such a small space with my family, the naps, the marshmallow roasting and the best part, the girls LOVE it. 

So of course I had to document this on layout. I just love the DIY collection by Crate Paper, how I adore this collection. It was perfect for this layout. Another bonus, this layout took 45 minutes to complete. SCORE!!! I try to make the most of Alexia's afternoon nap and when I have time to do a layout while she naps, it has to be done by the time she wakes up, otherwise it drags on forever. LOL!


There are a lot of layers on this layout. I used the tags, diecut frames and stickers to create the various layers and add dimension. The title is cut using my Cameo and glitter paper by American Crafts. I just love this glitter paper, I was hesitant to use it with my Cameo but it cuts beautifully, I'm hooked!!


The picture was edited using the BeautifulMess app. What a fun photo editing app, love all the lovely doodles and words available. Love it!

What a great layout - so many details and layers. (But camping still sounds like a horrible fate to me) LOL

Love, love, love, every little thing about this layout. The story behind it, the way you printed the edited photo to use on the lo, and all the little bits and pieces. It just jumped off the page in my Blogger reading list. Bravo Mel!
