Camping Fun!

I'm back...and glad you're still here to visit!
The family have all returned to a basically healthy status, although my cough still is hanging on!  Grrr!

Today begins a new challenge at {Pin}spirational Challenges!
Our {pin}spiring pic is a celebratory one this week.
Here's a look...



Doesn't that just get your creative juices flowing?
In Canada we are fast approaching Canada Day and our kids will be anticipating watching fireworks in a small community close to our vacation spot!
And this picture also inspires thoughts of our favorite summer past time which is camping!
This is where I drew my inspiration for my creation this week.

Here's what I came up with...


This was actually a very special creation for my daughter.  It was her birthday party invitation for her camping sleep over party which we just held this last weekend.  She and I browsed the Silhouette Online store and she fell in love with this camper card immediately.  She picked out the papers and the color scheme which of course I knew would be pink and purple.  We created 3 of them all the same as she had three friends that she wanted to invite, and that was pretty much all the room we had for extra bodies in our camper.  The day of the party, the weather was absolutely horrible.  We had downpour upon downpour, but by the time I picked up all the gals from school the sunshine was out and the air was damp and humid.  We made our way to the seasonal site where our camper is for the season and had grilled cheese cooked over the campfire for supper and pizza cookies baked in our pizza over and smores for dessert.  We headed out for an evening boat ride and the lake was smooth and the weather beautiful.  We finally called it a night at 11:00pm for the girls and moved them inside where they were allowed to watch one movie.  Amazingly enough, they actually all went to bed right after.  Needless to say, everyone slept in the next morning and all these young girls were poor little sad sacks of skin that were tired and very laid back for the rest of the trip. 
Everyone had a great time and said that it had been one of the best bday parties ever!
(My poor hubby and I are still feeling the effects of not enough sleep on the weekend!  LOL)

I hope that you'll find something inspiring in our photo this week and link up with us so we can see what type of creation you came up with.
