For my creation I decided to go with the Toasted Marshmallow Day because we were on vacation 2 weeks ago and we were eating marshmallows.  So I thought it would be great to present my camping journal for this post instead of my typical card.   

I started last year to journal our camping vacation because I have started a scrapbook about camping but since I'm many years behind... I better document was is going on otherwise I won't remember and be able to scrapbook it out!

For this page, I used a great digi from Lacy Sunshine called Erin Roasting Marshmallows she's in the retired digi section so for only 1$$$.

I used my scallop and large circle dies from Spellbinder.  

Here's a closer look at the digi colored with my copics
And I used a great sentiment from Create with TLC that is sooo true since I never wanted to go camping... and my hubby kinda pushed me into it.  Now he would have trouble to make me want to stop! lol

You will want next to go and visit the super fabulous Christine.  Thanks for stopping by and mark your calendar again next month to see what Holidays to Celebrate on September 14, 2013, for the next Calendar Girls Blog Hop!
