What activities do you enjoy when you go camping? For some it is the pure joy of sitting around the camp fire enjoying the peace and quite. For others it is going for a hike or a bike ride to take in the beauty of nature. A dear friend of mine allowed me to use this photo of her son and she shared that one of his favorite things to do when they go camping is to go fishing.
This photo of her son fishing inspired every bit of this layout. From the patterned papers I used, to the Cricut images I decorated it with. And what better cartridges to use than the two camping cartridges: Campin’ Critters and Camp Out – Digital?!
The border of fish felt like a perfect fit for the topic. I also found the “Gone Fishin” sign on the Campin’ Critters Cartridge to use as the title. I replaced the fish that was originally part of the sign with a fish from the Camp Out Digital Cartridge so that the title and borders would coordinate better.
I created the large frame by altering the Frame image from the Camp Out Digital Cartridge. I used the Cricut Craft Room to hide the outside of the frame image and I only used the inside piece. I copied this same image and then re-sized it to make one slightly larger to create a double mat effect.
To spread the forest image across the layout, I cut the image and placed part of it on one side of the photo and the other part on the other side of the photo. I also cut these two trees apart to allow me to put the title behind the trees.
So when is your next camping trip? I hope you have a great time and do something to rest and relax!
