The one without camping!

I am not a camper! I don't like roughin' it.... even a cottage is border line if its too far from shopping and restaurants! :) Just the way I roll. My theory is that you have to camp as a kid to enjoy it - as a kid we went to golf resorts with kid activities, visited family, shopping trips to Chicago and Toronto...... - no camping! The joke in my family is that a hotel without room service is really roughin' it ;)

This line from AC - Campy Trail is made for those of you who love to camp...BUT super fun for so many other things as well! I used it for a golf trip I took way back with my husband Alain when we were just dating.... The wood grain really works for the outdoor pics. I was inspired by my friend Angela while creating this little clustered grouping on the side of the title.... All the paper is AC as well as the thickers. The fabric circles and journal spot area new BG life of the party - match so perfect with this line.

And as it always seems to go - the line that is suppose to challenge me the most turns out to be my favorite layout of the month :)

Hope you had a good weekend! I did some shopping on Saturday and got some great deals! Used my 25% off at JoAnns - picked up the Martha Stewart circle cutter. So far I tested it and I really like it! Full review once I have had more time to really play!!!

Have a great day!

Great layout. I love that woodgrain too!

Cute layout! I don't like camping either but I think that is because I was forced to when I was a child.

Really love the colors with the wood grain paper, and I'm with you on the whole camping thing...(no thanks!)

Tammy said...

That's a fun layout! I like that these paper are versatile, they aren't so "themey" that you can't do other things with them. I have the same opinion about camping...I'll only do it down at the Marriott! :)

LOL at your camping memories.

You would love our camp/cottage. Hot water, TV, satellite dish, and soon to come internet.
Oh ya a restaurant within walking distance, lol.

We used to go camping in tent when I was young and loved so much :)

Oh, what a cool layout. Love the woodgrain as your bg. The place where I non-rough-it camp (wi-fi, ac, pool...) is right up the road from Crystal Mt -- too funny :)

I love how all your photos rest on the shelf of patterned paper! Great use of camping stuff for a non-camping layout, I definitely agree with your thoughts on camping. Love how you mixed the AC and BG.
