Crazy 4 Challenges-Vacation!

Hey everyone, and welcome to this week's Crazy 4 Challenges challenge! Now that the weather is sunny and clear (hopefully), we often start planning vacations. Create a card showing a favorite vacation spot or activity.If you decide to play along with us, all you have to do is create a card/project, and upload it to your blog and/or to your SCS Gallery using the keyword C4C89. Don't forget to come back here and link it on Mr Linky so that everyone else can see it too.

I am SUPER happy with this card...I can't even tell you. It isn't just the card, though, it's the memories that I attach to it. Now, I have had a couple of ridiculously funny camping/canoeing trips, but I also think trips to Disney, Girl Scout camp, all sorts of stuff. Me+boat=some one's going to pee themselves with laughter. My favorite story involves my now ex-husband, but it's too funny not to laugh at now...especially since he got a "little" hurt by it. hehe. We were canoeing in Missouri at Current River, and we were arguing...something we did VERY well. He couldn't steer, and I wasn't much help, either. We are starting to get near the trees, I am yelling at him, and there it is....a terribly low branch. My sister and brother in law saw it better, but I saw the branch coming, and without a word, laid back flat in the boat so it would go over me....but it WHACKED him right in the face. I almost fell out of the canoe I was laughing so hard. I know it's mean, but hey, it was HYSTERICAL.
My image is the Flappers Doodles-SS Flapper. I stamped it on X-Press It blending card, and then colored it with my Copics. I layered it with Grape Jelly, Sour Apple, and Fossil card stock. My paper is from the Lilybee Designs Happily Lost pad. I used Michael's brads, a Creative Express spiral clip, and some Honeydew and Lilac twine. For my border, I used the Catch A Wave Die-namic, and my sentiment is the Sweet Stack Die-namic.

For the inside, I used more of the same supplies.

Well, that is it for me for now! Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check out my other Crazies!!
