Murphy's Law

Good morning. Today is my last post as guest designer for Clearly iStamp challenge blog and its been a blast! This is challenge #2 for Clearly iStamp and the theme is Summer Time. I was given the stamp Happy Trails Camper to use and knew immediately what I'd be doing, lol. My husband loves to camp and when he has time will take off to go camping/fishing. Most camping trips for him are uneventful but this particular one was a Murphy's Law weekend, what could go wrong...did go wrong. I started with printing the Happy Trails Camper stamp out 4 times so I could layer it. The only items on the centre image that are NOT stamps are the 2 marshmallow sticks. (this set comes with marshmallow sticks but I didn't want to cut them out so I used stickers!) I computer generated all the sentiments.

 Here's a closeup of the set.

 So the first thing Robin does is set up the tent and the fly was missing so he improvised, I love those clothes pins lol!

Here's what the double layout looks like and best part of all...this is only the beginning! More to come.
