Hello and welcome to Stamp, Ink, Paper's Challenge #51! This week's challenge is a theme and it is one of my favorite themes.. sunsets!
So this week I totally went out of my comfort zone and made an outdoor camping themed card for my daughter's sweet friend, Lauren. Lauren LOVES to camp and boat. They live in Middle Tennessee where the mountains looks like huge green hills! lol I will never forget the first time I went to the Smoky Mountains in East Tennessee. I was living in Memphis at the time and had traveled from Memphis to Middle Tennessee numerous times to visit my relatives and was very familiar with the hills but had never seen a mountain. In my mind's eye a mountain was a huge rock, and certainly didn't have any grass or trees. Well man was I ever wrong! The Great Smoky Mountains looks just liked the hills around my Grandparent's house only bigger!
Since the mountains, water and camping are Lauren's Happy Place, I just stamped Happy on the sign. I used a combination of My Favorite Things stamps and dies, Lawn Fawn stamps and dies and Mama Elephant Dies. Whew! That was a lot of different stamp companies. Oh and of course I used Stampin' Up Cardstock.
