Scrapping on Vacation

Have you ever brought your scrapping stuff with you on vacation?  I found myself in the middle of a 6 week contest for The Last Scrapper Standing while I was packing to leave for ALASKA!!!  Thank goodness they were giving hints for the next weeks challenge as I was I put together a little (or big) kit of sorts and packed it all away.  Of course I made it to the next round, so it was time to create.....onboard the Golden Princess while at sea, lol!!  Packing my adhesive was of course a no brainer, I took along my Helmar 450 Quick Dry, my Helmar ZapDots, Helmar Liquid ScrapDots and my Helmar Adhesive Runner..check it out:
And here is my scrapping space.....aka my mess in my room:
The people I was travelling with got a kick out of it!!!!
So being the week of the 4th of July I had to use 7 stars (and they couldnt be designs in the paper), the given sketch, red, white and blue with one of the colors as a main color. This is what I came up with using my Webster's Pages papers and embellies and some Best Creation Glitter cardstock:
And let me share with you how I did it :)
The flower:  I cut thin strips of paper and curled them with the blade on my scissors.  I put Helmar Adhesive Runner all over on the backside of the chipboard button and attached the curly strips all around.  I then added a large Helmar ZapDot to the back and attached it to the paper, adding the rhinestones as an accent.
The bloomers:  I adhered them with my Helmar 450 Quick Dry, then added some Helmar Liquid ScrapDots to the centers and added the sparklers.
The pearl strip and the glitter stars were adhered with my Helmar 450 Quick Dry.  For everything else I used my handy dandy Helmar Adhesive Runner.
A note about the little doilys.....they were on our soup plates at lunch and everyone saved them for me...I just inked them with some ink :)
And.......I did make it to the next week of the competition with this layout!!!
So tell me......have you scrapped on vacation????
Thanks for your time and I hope that I have inspired you just a tad :)

Soooo.... its been awhile, but.....I'M BACK!!!!

Wow...July has been the busiest month on record for me!  Its good to be home for a stretch of time!  The beginning of the month saw me in Alaska on a cruise:

It was a great trip and we had an awesome time participating in the art auctions on board the ship!!!  Great Memories made :)

Once home we were here for just 4 days before we took off again...this time to Reno/Sparks NV in the motorhome with the 3 grandkids, my newly diagnosed diabetic cat, the dog, and a bunch of my daughters belongings.......because she moved there!!  We didnt make the 9 hour drive all at once though...stopped at Convict Lake on the way up:
We arrived in Sparks and "camped" in an RV park in was great, hookups, a pool, laundramat etc.  We ended up staying 4 nights there.  While in Sparks we went to the local Water Park - Wild Islands - and had the best of times.  First time there for Jenna and Trevor...unfortunately I did not take any photos because I didnt want to have my camera we just have memories :)  We also went to Circus Circus in Reno and then Virginia City:
And then we hit the road again...this time for home!  We stopped at Convict Lake again on the way home and had a little informal photo shoot:
And before you know it July will be over!!!!  I had alot of fun but man I am glad to be home!!!  First thing I did was clean my scraproom.....and scrap...will share more later when Blogger isnt acting up!
