April Market Street Block Party & FMS #32

Well, tomorrow is back to work after a wonderful two week vacation! We traveled down to FL in our camper and spent time with most of our family. Phillip and I are both from FL, so all of our family is still down there (we live in MA now). I made this card for his grandparents. For a few nights we stayed at the Highlands Hammock State Park with 3 generations of Davises all in a row with our campers. It was a lot of fun.

This card uses Market Street Stamps. I'm playing along with this month's Block Party.

And also with this week's Freshly Made Sketches Challenge:

Are these marshmallows not the cutest? We did roast them over the fire one night. Did you know they sell flavored ones now? I got coconut and let me tell you a coconut marshmallow s'more with dark chocolate and chocolate graham crackers is divine!

 I Just love this adorable little camper. All stamps and the sentiment are from MSS. The woodgrain paper is from Amuse. The ribbon is from SU, and the double ended banner die is from PTI (and so is the cardstock). Images were colored with Copics.

And now a few pics from our trip. I put many more on FB, but here are a few cute shots:

These first two pictures are at the Highlands Hammock campground. We took a nice long walk with the dogs and took some pics in front of this cool tree. That is my mother and father in law with us in the pics.

My mom is the photographer, so I don't have any pics of me and my nephew Liam (whose first birthday party we were able to attend while we were there!) or my parents yet, as those photos are on her camera. But I was able to snag this cute shot of me and my 6 month old niece, Autumn :)

And on the last night there I got this photo of my SIL, Whitney, on the left and my sister, Jamie, on the right.

We had such a great time, but boy did it go by so fast! Every single day we had plans, so I'm glad we got back on Friday so we could have a couple days of rest before going back to work. After getting to spend time with my family, I now miss them terribly, though. To end on a funny note, though, after living in the camper for two weeks, everything in our house seems so incredibly huge!
