Missing U! - FCCB #122 - S'more Anyone?

Happy Monday Everyone,

Hope you had a terrific weekend.  We were in celebration mode.  My sister's birthday was Sunday.  It is fun getting together for celebrations!

It is time for 'Challenge Me Monday' @ Fantabulous Cricut.  So get out your crafting supplies and let's get busy.  This week our challenge was to: Make a project with a camping theme (tent, bon fire, canoe, etc.)  Well I found me some fire, now I just need to get it incorporated into a project!

When I think of camping I think of Best Western with an indoor pool!  You say that is not camping ... oh well.  Seriously, I am not the camping type.  I need to have my shower every morning or I am a grungy beast.  And, I am allergic to smoke.  I am the one with red, soggy eyes around the campfire.  I do enjoy S'mores though ... only mine are made in the microwave.  Without further ado here is my creation for this week's challenge:
I chose to make a 'Missing U' card.  DH thought my To Do list was clever.  I hope you think so too!

Size:  A2 (4.25" x 5.50") Easel fold
  • Mat is cut @ 4.125" x 5.375"
  • Front Tag is cut @ 2" x 2"
  • Inside Tag is cut @ 1" x 3"
Marshmallows:  3 BIRDS ON PARADE, pg 57, Camper-s Layer 2 cut @ 2.9" (This was figured using Fit to Length to find the size).
Fire:  YEE-HAW, back page, Campfire + Layers cut @ 1.5"
Tepee:  CREATE A CRITTER, pg 63, Fox and Fire cut ! 1.9" using Accessory feature
Cardstock:  The Paper Company (Kraft, White, Brown, Turquoise, Goldenrod, and Orange)
Patterned Paper:  DCWV (The Flower Shower Stack - Ivory and Green linen)
Accents:  3M (Post-it Note) and JoAnn's (Red - Primary Mini Brads)
Color Medium:  Pentel (Black Ener-Gel Pen 1.0mm)
Adhesives:  Scotch (ATG and Foam Tape) and EK Success (Zig 2 Way Glue Pen - Fine Tip)

I think I will grab me some marshmallows and head to the microwave. 

Now, it is your turn to come up with a creation using a 'Camping' Theme.  Then pop on over to FCCB and post away ... can't wait to see what you create!  Don't forget to stop by my design sister's blogs and give them some Gooey Comment Goodness.   Off to my abode to get cracking on the next 'Cool' challenge!

Toodles and Happy Crafting,

Your husband was right(dont tell him)...the post-it notes were a cute idea! Love the idea of a check off list and then the little miss you at the bottom. Good job. Kathie

Super cute card! I love your best western comment. I call that "glamping" and there is nothing wrong with that! I have upgraded to trailer camping from backpacking... I can't stand sleeping on the ground anymore! :-)
The check list is very clever!

I am with you on the camping part. I am not one. I am what you would describe a city camper. Love that checklist we need it for everything.
