Take a Hike layout (for Exploring Cricut)

It's a vacation challenge at Exploring Cricut this week, with a twist-include a sign on the project.  I have a hiking/outdoor themed layout for you.  We are going hiking in the beautiful Rocky Mountain National Park on our summer vacation to Estes Park, Colorado.  I am expecting to shoot a few (OK, a lot!) of pictures on the trail!  I used a whole bunch of cartridges to try to capture the outdoors feel for my layout.

I used the Outdoor Man cartridge for the hiking boots, binoculars, compass, and moose.  Then I added the sun from Doodlecharms.  The stand of trees is from the Disney Classics cartridge.  The title font is the Frogs and Snails font from the CM Stork's Delivery cartridge.  And last, trail sign is from Campin' Critters.    The base paper is from a really old Echo Park collection and the print paper is also from Echo Park.  I hand cut the ground strip, using a wave template.

CM Stork's Delivery-font
Disney Classics-stand of trees
Campin' Critters-trail sign
Outdoor Man-all other cuts
Paper-Echo Park print and bg paper, CTMH solids
brown chalk ink

There are lots of vacation projects to see from the design team at Exploring Cricut-hope you'll link up to our challenge with a project!
