Happy Campers!

Firstly, thank you for all your congratulations on Mr T and I getting engaged in the last post! We are so happy and excited about the future :)

Now for a little scrapbooking!

The Sarah's Cards DT usually operates in two halves, with one team working on the kit each month and the other working on blog assignments. So we thought at the retreat it would be fun to for once all work with the same four papers and see what we all came up with, as there is a huge variation of styles between the 10 of us. So somebody chose the new Campy Trail line from American Crafts, and we all got beavering away with the goodies.

Everybody's completed pages were totally diffferent so be sure to have a gander at them all here.
Here's what I came up with:

I used the gorgeous woodgrain stamp I bought at the retreat (which just happens to be part of the Campy Trail line and can be found here),to stamp onto a chipboard frame to jazz it up a bit.....and spot the made by me roses again which I'm a tad addicted to at the mo!!

As you can see I love me a bitta woodgrain, and not only did I use it as my background, but also cut the coloured woodgrain spots from one of the papers to make journalling spots decorated with stamps and rubons.

The hoot banner rub on (and the "Great Outdoors" and "Fun" text) were also from the Campy Trails line, and the stars are WRMK stamps - I love their little packs of stamps and they are soooo affordable, I have a few of them in my stash!!!

The photos were taken last October during a caravan weekend away in Tenby (ha how fitting!) - I can't resist a go in the park, even more so after dark!! Running them through a cross-processed action in Photoshop and tweaking the levels and colors a little made them perfect for the bright colours of the papers.
Thanks for looking as always xxx
