Camping Time!

I was finally able to get into my craft room today- it's been almost a week!!  
We are getting ready for summer time in our household.  The girls are out for softball- which means practice or games almost every night of the week.  Our weekends will be free- except for the occasional ones where I will have to work.  

Last year we received a camper as a gift from my husbands father.  It's a great starter camper especially since I will NOT sleep in a tent (unless it has a plush mattress, a lock on the door, and air conditioning).
Yesterday, Josh said he needs to get out in the camper and clean and air it out, so........

I was inspired today to use my new Campin' Critter cartridge!

I'm not sure if I will use this as a LO and put pictures up in the trees, or if I will frame it and hang it in the camper.  Hmmmm.......

The background trees were cut at 9".  The car and camper were cut at 3".  The deer behind the tree was cut at 5.5".
The grass is from Plantain Schoolbook and Kate's ABC's and cut at 1" and 1.5".
The Sun is 2.5" and cut from Wild Card.
I typed up the sentiment on my computer and printed it off (never tried that before but I liked how it turned out!).
