Gimme S'mores!!!

Happy 4th of July everyone!!
I am ready for some BBQ and blackberry cobbler later today - yummy!

Today's layout has photos from a campout my DD2 and I took 
earlier this year at spring break to Sam Houston National Forest in South Texas.
Lovely park - but lots of poison ivy!!

Today I am using new papers from Pink Paisley from 
The Crafty Scrapper the best little scrapbook store in North Texas!
If you are anywhere near Waxahachie, you need to detour on over
and stop in. You will swoon!!!!
How fabulous are these papers and die cuts!!!!  I also used a page from MME Bohemia
 for the background, Jenni Bowlin, Prima, MS punch, lace, Doodlebug buttons, 
Cosmo Cricket and Thickers alphas, and Glimmer mist.

I wanted my banner to have a little more presence against the background, so I backed them with blue Bazzill cardstock and added a tiny button at the end of each one.


I made the flower by fussy cutting 4 layers of of the paper, then using a corner punch on  
one layer, adding some lace in, and foam squares for added dimension.

I used the sketch from Sketchbook 365 - I moved my photos into the center
and made my banner bigger.

I am also linking up at the following challenges:
My Craft Spot - Hot Summer Colors / 4th of July
Use your stuff - Buttons
Unique Crafters  - Patriotic 
Divas By Design - Red, White and Blue
Cooking It Up With Katie - Sunny (camping counts, right!) Lace, flowers
