We finally went on our first camper outing this year last weekend. We were a little late getting started but finally made it out for a quick trip up to Twin Grove Resort in PA - our first time there and we will definitely be going back! Our goal for this trip was to do a little coal mine touring/learning. Hubby's dad's family worked in coal mines in that area until they were closed in the 30s. They lived in a small town called Centralia which is the site of an underground coal fire that has been burning for more than 50 years! The town is completely gone now - razed by the government after they forced everyone out due to the fire. Hollyn's favorite part of the trip was playing in the stream that ran through the campground with a couple friends she made:
The challenge this week is to use trees on a project so I thought it would be a perfect time to pull out some camping/hiking pictures.
I thought this hiking boot from the Campin' Critters cartridge would make a perfect little embellishment.
The best thing about the Cricut Explore versus the previous machines is the ability to use SVG cuts and I added cuts from Miss Kate Cuttables and built up several little scenes. (Right now her entire store is 20% off - you have until the 14th!)
I added some embossing to my rocks too! I just love the versatility I get with my Cricut Explore - one machine that can do it all now.
Please join us at the Bitten By the Bug Challenge these week and show us some trees!
