Happy Camper Giveaway

I know it has been a while since I posted anything on my blog.  This time of year is pretty hectic for me. I need to get the school year closed out before I can really get ready for summer.  One of my favorite things to do in the summer is to go camping, my whole family loves it because we like to rough it.  What a great coincidence that Imaginisce has just released a super cute camping collection, just in time for my summer.  To celebrate and to make up my absence to my wonderful readers, I would love to send you some of the Happy Camper I have in my stash.  All you have to do is leave me a comment about what you like to do in the summer and I will randomly draw a lucky winner from the comments a little bit later this week.
There are some great chipboard pieces in the collection like this sentiment and the cute little tree.  Here you can see that I added some unique stitching with my We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy Stitch Piercer.  It is a little roller that punches the holes in the paper, so all you have to do is follow the pattern with your needle and floss.
I love this photo of my husband, his father and our son.  Three generations is pretty darn special.  My father-in-law selected the matching shirts especially for this occasion. 
I also love the bright fun colors in this collection.  They are perfect for these photos of my son camping last summer.  I cut the large tree with my Cricut Expression and added some of the Imaginisce Silver Glam Rocks to look like all the rain we experienced on our trip.
I couldn't resist making this card with the little fire that comes with the collection.  Sometimes all you need is a little sense of humor to get through the day.

As I said above, please leave me a comment about your favorite summer activity and I will randomly select someone to receive some of the Brand New Imaginisce Happy Camper.

Thank you so much for stopping by -

Hi, Liz. Seems I haven't been by here in awhile. Busy time of year for me as well. Love your pages and the cute card! The best part of summer for me is having daylight until 9pm .. love to get things done outdoors that I normally couldn't do!

I love taking the kids to the beach during the summer, however, during the fall I love camping in a cabin in the mountains. Thanks for the chance to win, and for your inspiring sketches.

I love your card, such a fun idea and your 'dads and lads' LO is so neat, I love multi-generation pics!! We don't have anyting big planned, but I have 2 little boys who are anxiously waiting to build our wooden playset - so I'm sure that will keep us busy this summer! Thanks for the chance to win!

Our family loves to go to the beach in the summertime. Also, the men like to fish and the women like to shop. Thanks for a chance to win!

Brenda said...

Hey, Liz! This line is prefect for me as we do so much stuff outdoors in the summer. We spend many evenings fishing, several weekends at rented cabins, and lots of hikes in the summer. In Minnesota, we grab every bit of sumemr that we get!!

Kathy VanEssen said...

Camping and hiking are definitley two of our favorites as well! Although I do have to admit that the first hike of the season kicked my butt!

Liz said...

I love the play on words layout. Sweet as ever we love to bbq and play cribbage outdoors during summer

Diane said...

I love how you used this line. It is gorgeous:) I love summer. It means swimming pools, beach trips, and chaperoning children from our church at camp for a week. It's also great to smell the pines here in North Carolina as I run each morning.

bakscrap said...

I love camping, so I am super excited about this new collection. Tried to comment each day on the imaginisce blog, but had problems with blogger.

Kathy said...

We have MISSED you here, Liz!
I want to take my Mom on vacation this summer, up to New Hampshire where my brother lives. Since my Dad died in '09, she only goes somewhere when I take her.

Dayna said...

We visit my parents in South Texas near Corpus Christi every 4th of July. Hot but worth it!

For me summer is hanging out on the porch reading, rocking, scrapping and watching the kids swim in the pool below. I'm not much of a camper but I loved your projects and the line of paper.

Your LO's are amazing!! Such a beautiful family too! It just so happens our favorite thing to do in the summer is camp. We always take our DD's camping the day after school gets out and then 3 or 4 more times during the summer. The new Happy Camper line is definately one of my all times favorites. :)

I love hanging out at the swimming pool. Lounging and reading with occasional dips or just swimming laps! What a great way to keep cool!

Cindy said...

Bonfires in our back yard! The beauty of living in the country is being able to have fun right at home. We love making smores and roasting wieners. Cindy

Dawn said...

If I have me time, I love to read in the sunshine. Family time is outdoor fun like hiking, canoeing and camping!
