A Day at the Lake

I have been wanting to scrap these photos from our camping trip in 2009 since I took them. The camp site wasn't the greatest but we made the best of it. Our daughter had been talking about going fishing for a while so her daddy bought her a new pink rod. We spent an afternoon at the lake trying to catch something...anything but they weren't biting. We still had a blast and Rheagan learned how to cast and do all the other fun things you do when fishing.

Supplies: Imaginisce Happy Camper Collection - "Tree Hugger" (front/back), "Happy Camper", "Thermal Jammies", "Don't Feed the Bears", "Fireside Fun". "Gone Fishing" (front/back), "Fresh Air" papers; Great Outdoors Die-cuts; Camp Critter Die-cuts; Story Telling Sticker Stackers; White paper misted with homeade mist; i-top and large brad daddies; October Afternoon Red & Cream Mini Market Stickers; Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type alphas/phrases; CTMH re-inker colors.

I used this week's Sketchy Thursdays sketch. It's a FUN one....

I had the vision for this layout but it just wasn't coming together and I had it sitting there with all the elements for 2 weeks while I noodled on it and worked on other projects. It finally dawned on me that I needed to find some teal-ish solid paper but it was late at night when the inspiration hit so I made the paper. Well, I colored some white paper. Of course I didn't have the right color mist so I figured I didn't have anything to lose except time so I pulled out some of the CTMH re-inker colors I had in my stash - Pear, Lagoon, Pacifica and chocolate and mixed it all together with water in a mini mister. The color came out perfect and I love the appearance. To make the sun, I punched the paper with the i-top 28mm large punch for the base and then I punched a 2nd one and covered a large brad daddy with it.
