Tag You're It Challenge #39 Reminder



Happy Friday! We are half way through Challenge #39 at Tag You're It and today I have a tag to share with you based on Erin's inspiration. 



My husband grew up in a  family where they did lots of camping, my family had a cottage on the lake so I had never gone camping. Before kids and being the good sport that I am we did a camping trip with a tent once! It was an epic fail, it rained all weekend and it was miserable and damp. I vowed never to go camping again. When the kids were small though we wanted to travel, so we comprimised bought a travel trailer. We had a kitchen, a bathroom, beds and air conditioning which made me a happy camper and allowed us to travel extensively all over Canada and the U.S. Inspired by Erin I made a tag today with Lawn Fawn's Happy Trails, because of all my fond memories of camping with our kids.

I sponged Distress Ink onto a watercolour paper tag and flicked some water on it (have you been seeing a theme with me here-lol) and then I stamped the cute trailer also on watercolour paper and then watercoloured it with Distress Inks.

OMG, Tracey, were you at Bon Echo Park at the same time my family and I camped there? The rain never seemed to stop, and with one shaggy dog (Irish Setter), the tent became uninhabitable in no time! I vowed I'd only go camping again if I had a raised bed LOL Camping was something we did all the time when the boys were young, and thankfully, they have acquired this activity and a love of the outdoors. Your Tag is adorable, and I'm lovin' the watercolouring I've been seeing more and more of lately!
