Doing anything outdoorsy this summer? Let's hope so! There's a whole world out there to see—and scrapbook about! Lots of families like to spend family vacations by camping, hiking, biking, you name it—as long as it's outdoors. We already published a quote bank filled with sayings on camping and hiking and swimming and fishing and such, so today we're here to present some quotes on nature. You know, that stuff you'll be enjoying while you're out on all your excursions? Well, we're loaded with good ones.

But before that, there's just a few items of business that you're probably going to be glad we told you. First off—the ship for our October Canada/New England crafting cruise is filling up! A few more inside cabins remain, but they're dropping like flies. So book your spot NOW so you can take part in all the fun. We had an absolute ball on our May Alaskan adventure, and things can only get better! Plus, if you want to enjoy nature, this is definitely one way to do it—it's going to look heavenly there in the fall time. In fact, several of the same ladies who joined us in Alaska are planning on coming to Canada and New England because they enjoyed themselves so much.

And speaking of cruises, how about a Caribbean one? Well your chance all revolves in that Cricut Ticket! And this weekend only, you can get the Cricut Ticket cartridges—Home Decor, Jubilee, Simply Sweet and Stand and Salute—at Oh My Crafts for $39.99! What a steal, right?
