I'm home from my camping adventure over the (rainy) weekend. I definitely need a holiday to recover from the long weekend. Although I have to say the weekend highlight for me was definitely attempting to take down the tent in the driving rain and wind. I don't think I have laughed that hard in ages. Although driving back to the island with soggy feet wasn't so much fun.
But back to crafting. Here are a couple of layouts I completed last week whilst at a local crafty evening. I was lacking in inspiration but went through my photo stack and came across these and then all of a sudden my mojo returned and I created two pages that I love.
Now these are Stampin' Up! but not that you'd know as they were given to me from the US catalogue last year. These lovely tropical papers were in the US mini catalogue and had a stamp set to match. I just adore them and keep hoping they might make an appearance over here so I can restock on papers (and get the matching stamps). These papers fitted perfectly with the Hawaiian theme of my LOs and I couldn't resist using them (they've been in my 'to be looked at only' pile for a while. I do so love to keep my favourite papers and just stroke them from time to time).
I used a base cardstock of 12x12 textured Whisper White for both LOs (sorry they've gotten a bit lost on the white background).
The first LO features a Bevelled Window Pane to highlight the gorgeous little Tempting Turquoise turtle. I've kept the embellishment quite simple to feature the papers as the LO star.
Me and Kala keeping warm in the tent (on a very unsteady but old faithful camping chair). it was certainly chilly in the evenings.

Happy crafting all ;0)
