The Darlings are Dueling Again!

Hi everyone!

Yep...it's that time...time to post our duel creations! The theme for this month is "The Great Outdoors." And our hostess, Michelle, sent us a wonderful kit. The kit included the Whippersnappers image Roasting Mellos Bear, designer paper from the Imaginisce Happy Camper line. (IT IS SO CUTE!!!) Ribbon from American Crafts, a great pine cone brad from the Eyelet Outlet and buttons from October Afternoon Campfire.

The designer paper was so great that I chose a layout that would use some of each side of the dp so I could see it all. I think I used three out of the four sides of dp. I even ran out to Michael's today to see if I could find it there, I love it so much! Thanks Michelle! And I even remembered to decorate the inside!

With our post we were to share an experience either good or bad relating to the topic. My dad took us camping several times when I was a kid...and I remember being so excited the first time I caught a fish, I scared my dad to death. My brother and I were fishing down on the bank of the river and my dad was up just a ways at our campsite. I was screaming and hollering with excitement and my poor dad came running and was terrified something was wrong. The look on that poor man's face...and I was just thrilled!

Thanks for stopping by. And please check out the other Dazzlers' and Divas' creations. There are links in my sidebar to their blogs.
