OFF TO SUMMER CAMP.......




......NOT literally I hasten to add, but the brilliant DT over at SCRAP FRIENDZY have put together a summer of challenges, inspiration and prizes. Why not come and join us..I can assure you of a warm welcome and lots of fun!

We have had a few Pre-Crop challenges, and this is the layout I made for the third of these


The challenge was based on making S'MORES, which appear to be a great camping tradition in the USA.



To make S'mores make sure to pack:
Graham Crackers (texture).........vellum and twine
Chocolate (2 shades of brown).....dark and light brown on papers
Marsh-mellows (something white, and something round) * can be 2 different items......white flower and brads (round)
and last but not least something to roast them on! (something to stick your marsh-mellows on and roast)......stickpin




Hope you're all having a good weekend, and that your weather hasn't curtailled your activities TOO much!


Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you
Alison xx


Edited to add that I'm adding this to JENNIFER'S SCRAPBOOKING SOIREE......why not pop over to see what it's all about?

  3. What a great challenge as it is soooooo different. Has started my brain whirling ... ๐Ÿ˜Š
    I like your take. And if you haven't had a s'more before you really, really need to taste one. Preferably cooked on an open fire ๐Ÿ˜Š Whenever I go to the US I have to bring home Grahame crackers just for making s'mores. We can get the hershys chocolate and marshmallows here but you really need the Grahame crackers LOL

  10. Sounds like a fun summer ahead.
    We actually have an american shop here in NZ in Auckland and seeing as I will be in Auckland in a few weeks time I think I may have to purchase some graham crackers and finally give this delish sweet thing a try, although not sure WW will approve but who cares, let life live for once x x
