FCCB Challenge #224 - Campout (Camping Scene)

This weeks challenge on the Fantabulous Cricut Challeng Blog is...

I could not resist creating this cute little scene!

First up is this little tent I created using the Campin' Critters Cricut Cartridge.  I could not resist cutting out the little sign and stars to add to the tent!

And what is  campsite without a camp fire and smores!  Here I used an SVG file from SVG Cuts called Camp Firefly
