Ahhhhhh, the great outdoors. And did you know that now you can actually go camping with your Cricut? But that's entirely beside the point. The point is to enjoy the beauty - and the bugs, dirt and muck. I remember being a kid and exploring with my brothers in Northern California, Oregon and even Alaska. Hiking, camping, swimming, riding our dirt bikes all day long, building tree forts, and thinking every little clue we found out there was a brand new discovery, or a mystery that we were sure we could figure out if we just dug in the dirt a little more. The world had no limits. (I'd love to hear about your favorite outdoor adventure memories if you post a comment!)

Those are the memories and feelings that were my inspiration for this layout, which was made with Graphically Speaking and the Cricut markers. Papers are all from Stampin' Up! I will be teaching this layout at least once, and that class is scheduled for Thursday, June 11th here in Rocklin from 6-10pm. Class fee is $25, which includes all papers, ribbons, and even the SU Build-a-Brads (those things are fun!!). And of course, you'll get my detailed directions and Cricut Cut Chart, which makes it very easy to work at your own pace, step by step. If you're not in the area, you're welcome to reserve a kit for the same price (I can ship too for a small shipping cost). Just contact me through the Cricut mb, or post a comment here - but be sure to leave me your email address so I can actually reach you. The class will also be a great opportunity to learn to use your Cricut markers if you haven't used them yet. Plus we always have some stinkin' FUN! Now get out there and enjoy this fantastic weather!

Monique,
Thanks for sharing that childhood memory. I felt like I was there with you digging in the dirt.

I didn't do much camping as a child. My mom tells this story of my first camping trip. She said she spent more time trying to keep me clean then anything else.

I enjoy camping as an adult but... I'm getting to old to sleep on the ground. I guess its time to upgrade. :)

Oh Monique, you are just amazing..
And you are going to teach how to use the markers. I brought those and have never used them... this is so cute, but I am going to have to do Tinkerbell.. (and miss out on the darn brads :-( Wish I could talk my hubby into moving to Rocklin. LOL

I didn't do any camping as a child..

Well I can't say I love the great outdoors, most of my memories of camping out have scared me off of doing it now. Plus I don't like my hands getting dirty. lol But I love this layout and would be perfect for my boys who go with their dad.
