June Campin Pics Weekend 1

Dh took this one , I'm bringing up the rear:
My guys at one of the most beautiful yet very scary spots on our mountain bike outting:
At one of the many many (did I mention many) designated overlooks:

The highest point in Arkansas is at an elevation of 2,753... our house located in Northwest Arkansas is located at an elevation of 1,340:

My oldest son & I were acting goofy at dh's expense... just wait until I scrap this one of him, maybe a blow up of his face where you can't really see what/who he's pointing at? lol

Hope you enjoyed this little bit of my home state as much as I enjoyed going there!

Slacker Scrapper

I've been busy lately, not with scrapping or stamping, but with enjoying life... so I'm taking a little time off from paper production to actually live & enjoy the fam! Camping in the mountains this weekend with just the four of us. Camping at a creek next weekend with my fam, my brother & neice, maybe his good friend & fam, and maybe my good friend & fam - doesn't matter how many there are, as long as we're together! But when my little s&s vacay is over, please be assured that I'll be back with a vengence posting my "artwork" (lol) as often as possible.

For now, gotta go find my tank top, shorts, hiking boots, sunscreen, and try on the dreaded bathing suit (surely that still fits... yep, like sausage in a tube!). The hammock is already loaded!

Here are some pics from previous camping trips:
Biking at Mt. Nebo
Looking for diamonds at The Crater of Diamonds
High above the War Eagle River at Withrow Springs State Park
Just one of the awesome views at Mt. Nebo
This weekend takes us to Mt. Magazine, this highest point in Arkansas. Next weekend to Cyclone, Missouri on the Big Sugar Creek.

Be Yourself card

My boys' last day of school was Wednesday; and while my older son could go to Grandma & Grandpa's house, my younger son had a baseball game Thursday night. So my friend, Vanessa, took care of my younger boy Thursday and today. Tomorrow night I'm taking her out to dinner & made her this card as a Thank you as she won't take money. What a great friend!

I also ramdom stamped the envelope in the same color palette.
