Camping Fun for AHSC #216
Hello, crafty friends! I hope your summer is off to a great start. We're in a hot, stormy weather pattern here in the midwest so I've been very appreciative of air conditioning while I craft. Once again, Michelle Stewart has brought us a fabulous sketch to work with this week at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. I admit, I found this one a bit of a challenge at first but once I got started the ideas were flowing and I kept changing my mind as to what theme I wanted to go with. Ultimately, though, I couldn't resist making this camping themed piece to serve as a cover page for one of those inexpensive, clear pocket 4 x 6" photo books you can pick up just about anywhere. I have collected almost everything camping related that CTMH has put out, even though we don't go camping.... yet. I'm trying to talk my husband into getting a small camper someday as I'd like to do some traveling when he retires in 10 years or so, but I'm already partially disabled and I think having a camper will make it easier for us to take trips.
At any rate, I hope this sketch gets your creativity going and that you find time to share your creations with us. As always, you have until 10:55 pm Eastern/9:55 pm Central on Sunday, 6/18/17, to link your projects, which you can do HERE.
Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting! ~~ Annette
