It's a real hoot layout (for BBTB2)

Happy Monday!  I have to come back to the real world now that my vacation is over…but I had a great time!   If you haven't been to Rocky Mountain National Park and the town Estes Park, CO, put it on your bucket list-the area is unbelievably beautiful!  I did find time for some shopping, where I found an amazing little scrapbooking store tucked away in Estes Park with products for scrapping all the fun vacation activities in the area.  Let's just say I helped the local economy greatly in the scrapbooking store, LOL!  Here's a bit of what I did last week while exploring Rocky Mountain National Park:

 Me and my hubby at RMNP-it's so beautiful that it looks like a painting! 

 White water rafting on the Cache La Poudre river-wild times, I tell you!

Rocky Mountain High at almost 13,000 feet with the fam!

me and my youngest son hiking at RMNP-so much fun!

So, on to crafty pursuits:  Whooo's up for an owl challenge?   It's an owl challenge at BBTB2 this week, so I broke out my Hoot and Holler cartridge to make this layout a real hoot! (Sorry guys, couldn't resist the puns!)   I don't know about your family, but my kids take lots of random goofy pictures of us all with the iPhones when they are waiting for events.  I have a ton of wacky funny pics and this seemed like a perfect title/theme to scrap some of them.  I cut the title and all the various owls from Hoot and Holler.  The print papers are from the Echo Park Summer Bliss collection.

All the design team at BBTB2 have fabulous owl projects to share.  Go take a look-there are LOTS of cricut owls to choose from-apparently owls are very trendy!  Who knew?  Make a project and share over at BBTB2 with us!
