I have chosen   National S'mores Day

When: Always on August 10th
S'mores are a favorite campsite treat for young and old kids. If you're at a campfire, chances are, there's S'mores. Sticky and gooey, and loaded with sugar and carbs, S'mores are nothing short of delicious. Who was the first person to create S'mores? We don't know. But, we're all sure glad they did!
National S'mores Day celebrates this tasty summer treat. It's appropriately placed in August...campfire prime time. But, don't limit your consumption of S'ores to the campfire. They are popular with kids year round, and can be baked in the oven or microwave.
The origin of S'mores dates back to the 1920's. It's believed the recipe was created by the Campfire Girls. Girl Scouts soon discovered it, and found it to be chocolatey delicious.  Before ling, S'mores became a campfire staple for everyone. S'more folklore suggests that S'mores got its name right by the campfire. After eating one, young kids chanted "gimme some more!"
While much is written about National S'mores Day, our research has been unable to verify that this is an officially recognized national day (which requires an act of Congress). Don't let that stop you from celebrating this day with a few S'mores.

And here is my card:

Our sponsor this week is Doodle Dragon Studios and Dustin has graciously given us all images to use for this FUN challenge!! SO many to choose from!!  I added white puffy paint to the marshmallows and then when it was dry, I coloured it with brown Copic (E33) to make them lightly toasted!!!  The ants look like they are enjoying their S'Mores!!!!  YUMMMMMM!!!!!  Best part about camping!!!!!  :)   I have used a bit of magic mesh and some camping themed DP. 

Be sure to check out Dustin's amazing digis in his SHOP!!!  
And then, head on over to the CHALLENGE blog and see what the rest of my teamies have done!!!!

Have fun and good luck!!! I hope you'll join us this week! If you do, you could win a GREAT prize this week!!! WOOO HOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
