FCCB 174 - Summer Camp

Good morning!!  It's time for another fun challenge at Fantabulous Cricut!  This week's challenge is Summer Camp - create a camping theme project.

This card was inspired by my dad, my brother and my sweetie.  Every year they go on a week-long camping trip - a whole week of hiking, fishing and camping.  No electricity, no running water, just them in the great outdoors.  The come back with lots of pictures and stories, and as I was flipping through my Campin' Critters handbook I saw this scene and immediately thought of them.

They head to mountainous areas and always camp near lakes or streams so they have a source of water.  They carry dehydrated food in with them, but they always fish to try to supplement their meals.  The mountain scene with the stream seemed like a perfect background for the little deer fishing!

It's hard to see in the pictures, but I added some glitter to the snow on the mountains.  A bit of embossing on the trees and the water and some fun google eyes on the deer finish it off.  I'm hoping to sneak this in my sweetie's backpack before he leaves on this year's camping trip next week!

The challenge at Fantabulous Cricut stays open until Sunday evening, so link up your camping themed projects before then.  We can't wait to see your fun creations!!
