H2H Adventure Awaits

Welcome to another week and another challenge from Heart 2 Heart!

There are so many Adventures in life and we can celebrate these moments in many way. For me I love to Scrapbook them. This spring we went on a camping trip. We went with a large group of friend (there were over 30 adults and 20 kids) to Fruita, CO. We took over most of the campground so it was fun to just let the kids run wild. This was a big step for us as this was the first time our son has camped and it has been over 40 years for myself.

We had a great time! I love this paper pack Into the Wild, it is probably one of my all time favorites from Close to My Heart!! So when I started this layout, I seriously agonized over it for three days!! You know this happens when you really love a paper pack and want everything to be perfect. Part of my struggle was I wanted to include so many photos and was trying to accomplish with just flip flaps. I finally decided to go with Pocket Plus pages so that I could incorporate some of the Picture My Life Cards from Into the Wild.

This is the base layout

I added a few details to show you some of the unique elements. For starters I used two other pattern papers to piece together with Heather and White Daisy cardstock to make the camper. I also used the grass stamp from the Happy Trails Stamp set and Thin Cut. I also used many of Into the Wild Wood Shapes.

Here is another detail showing the stamped border I created using New England Ivy ink and cardstock using the pine trees from the Happy Trails Stamp set. I used Espresso Pigment ink to stamp the logs and Intense black to stamp the fire. I then use watercolors to paint the fire.

  1. Really nice layout! I am not a camper, but this almost makes me want to go so I can scrap the experience!
