Camp Scrap First Prompt!!

This page is actually based on the first prompt layout we were sent.......think I've now finished Week 1 prompts......being half way through Week 2!!!!!
Photos taken a few weeks ago at DD1's birthday BBQ.....the inspiration LO used buttons all round the side....but I thought the card candy colours matched better.......the paper is very apt....as a lot of drinking went on!!!
This BBQ LO definately says 'summer' to me......which is what Sir Stampalot July Challenge wants.
An eventful weekend for us.......got fried at the bootsale....but managed to sell a lot of 'excess to requirement' items.......went for an evening stroll on the beach with fish and chips......returned home.....turned on dishwasher and TV........BANG......NO MORE ELECTRICITY......at all......none......no apparent reason......on a Saturday evening......on the Hastings Beer Festival Saturday evening.......all electricians at Beer Festival getting drunk.......but lucky it wasn't the middle of winter......lucky OH was at home.......lucky our neighbours plugged our freezer into their electricity supply!!!!
DD1 was not impressed by candles.......no TV, no internet, no shower......the end of the world was obviously nigh!!!!
Our friendly neighbourhood electrician fixed it Sunday morning......despite his hangover.......the main fuse switch had apparently broken.....reason unknown.......but slightly worrying how much we depend on electricity......the only things that worked in our house without it were the gas hob and the main phone line.....I'm off to top up with candles!!!

OOH no, don't like to think of no electricity - bad enough with simple power outages but no desire to return to the dark ages, thank you!!!! LOVELY layout btw and I agree with you about the card candy too.

I'm laughing at the thought of all the electricians being at the beer festival! But being without electricity these days really isn't funny: I'm glad you managed to get it sorted out.

I hate it when we lose our electrical power. Have to agree with your daughter!

Hi Jacky

What a great l/o, liking the shaped side panel, it add i really modern feel ti it all.

It's crazy how much we rely on electricity in the same way os computers, it's not until we lost them we actually realise.

Thank you for sharing it with us at Stampalot Challenge this month and good luck.

But at least you don't need electricity to craft so that's okay. Love this LO Jackie. The Card Candy is perfect. Looks like a good time was had by all. Lauren x

My lot get quite excited when we have a power cut!! But I guess they'd miss the X-Box if it lasted too long!! At least it is possible to scrap by candlelight!!! How lovely to be able to just take a stroll on the beach anytime you want..I am envious of that!!

humel said...

Oh no, power cut? Disaster! (Perhaps you should have just gone to the beer festival?!) Love the layout xx
