September 1st Sketch

Here is my take:
hello adventure

This photo was taken this summer on our adventure, back-country camping trip
into Algonquin Park.
We did a double portage to Hambone Lake with our puppy,
he did amazing!!
This layout was created entirely with Clique Kit,
isn't it amazing?!!

Here are some close ups:
My title was easy, as soon as I saw this acrylic
word title I knew that was it!
hello adventure
is an altered card.
I cut it in half and fussy cut the feathers, then tied them together with some floss
The FLAIR is by:

We love back-country camping
- this is our attempt to show our love
I added some texture paste with a Tim Holtz stencil
 More of the Clique Kit altered - I fussy cut my dream catcher,
painted some areas with water paint and tucked it behind my photo.
Pretty Little Studio word flags
adventure awaits
write this down
enjoy the view

And here is your HOP order!
