Every year we take a camping trip with a large group of friends during the first weekend in August. This year saw our largest party with eight families joining in the fun - 12 adults and 17 children! As you may imagine catering for such a crowd is like a military operation, but it is all part of the fun and we all muck in together. The ages of the children range from 6 - 10 and so if we can we do like to spend our days on the beach, as it keeps them all entertained at relatively low cost.
This year was no exception and although the weather wasn't brilliant we manged two days. One of the most important elements of our day trip are regular cups of tea! With the thirst of 12 adults to quench, a couple of flasks will not suffice so now we take a portable gas burner in order to brew up. Obviously there are the inevitable
Funnily enough my inspiration for this page comes from Miss Smith who is a great tea drinker. In the March addition Scrap 365 she had a page published. You can read about it here. The article was encouraging you to use paint on your layout, which I did by dipping the edge of a credit card into white paint and making the grid. I really enjoyed doing this and I think it may be one of my current favourite layouts!
I hope you enjoyed by tale - do hop over to Sian's blog where you will find all manner of stories to entertain you this Sunday.
