National S'mores Day!

August 10 is National S'mores Day . . . Yes, there really is a day to celebrate S'mores!

Are you ready for the big day?

I decided I'd better get going since the summer is flying by! Here's what I created:

My cute little package uses the Under the Stars stamp set for the main image. I bought this set a few years back, thinking I was going to make a bunch of these packages! Isn't the bear adorable? I stamped him on Soft Suede with my Black Staz-On (this is my "go-to" stamp pad all the time!), then cut him out. The sleeping bag was stamped on Marina Mist, with a little snippet of linen thread holding it "closed". Of course, everyone knows that you need "Skeeter Spray" if you're going camping (or even if you're staying home in July/August -- they're brutal this year!)!

I made a "to/from"tag too. Now I can't remember if it's Poppy Parade (which it looks like) or Real Red. I kind of think that the picture doesn't do the color justice, and that it was Real Red. The scallop circle is Old Olive of course.

One more thing about my s'more: I found these already-squished marshmallows to put in between my graham crackers -- so cute! Why didn't I think of that?! The chocolate is actually bits and pieces of a dark chocolate Lindt bar -- can you believe I don't have any "normal" chocolate in the house?

Well, I'm going to make a few more of these to take to my nieces and nephews this week! I'm "on holiday" after my night shift tonight as my friends in the UK say! I hope you're staying cool and find time to stamp during these busy summer months!
