Summer Camp Challenge & LGS

Happy Summer  everyone! It seems like much of the country has been having a heat wave. After having snow in May, then lots of rain, I am ready for some heat. Although I do not sit out in this heat, I do not complain about it. I love summer nights when it only gets down to 70 degrees. I wish we would go camping again.

Speaking of camping. This week is Summer Camp at Scrappin Peeps ProBoards & Club CK. They have challenges all week long. Last year I joined Club CK & ended up winning a prize for one of the challenges. As slow as I am, I will not finish all the challenges so I will do what I can with my peeps  on the ProBoards.

This is the first one that I finished. It is challenge #8- Cooking Camp by Vicki. It is a recipe challenge. The ingredients we were to have on our layout were: 3photos,  photo mats, 3 colors, 3D embellishments, brads or eyelets, ribbon or string & journaling. Then I used the sketch from Ashley Horton at Lets Get Sketchy this week. I ended up turning the sketch so my photos would fit.

Prima                           My Mind's Eye       SEI Wedding Kit        
White Flowers                 Brads                 Paper       
                                                         Journaling Tag
 Oriental Trading            Pink Cardstock        
 Pink Ribbon
  Sheer Creations             Recollections
 Black Ribbon                Black Adhesive Rhinestones
                                Glitter Stickers

I inked the journal tag & the top flower with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. The second flower was inked with Black Soot Distress ink. The flowers had a wooden button in the middle but I tore them off so I could put my brad there. I very seldom take apart my Prima flowers. I used my paper piercer to make a hole in the center of the flower.
The brads were a light pink so I inked them with Adirondack Raspberry Alcohol Ink using a piece of felt so it matched the ribbon better.

I didnt even notice until now that there is a glare on 1 of my photos. I hate when something like that happens.

Hope everyone has a Great Weekend!
Happy Scrappin!
