Gatlinburg and Kayak Trip Layout

Our trip to Gatlinburg, TN included a new experience. The boys had received kayaks for their birthdays and so we decided to take them with us to Gatlinburg. Despite having the Aztec for years we had never used it for transporting anything on top of the vehicle. What a comedy act! We had no idea on what we were doing. In trying to attach the kayaks to the roof one of them slipped and ended up breaking the area around the driver's side door lock (inside).

We ended up having to secure them a couple more times on the trip down. By the time we got there we finally had figured it out. Unfortunately though the kayaks spent the entire time in our condo.  The river was closed due to a high fecal count for part of the time and then major storms came through making it unsafe to be on the swiftly moving river. So the only water the kayaks saw the entire time were the thunderstorms we drove through on the way home!

Cardstock and Paper: Best Creations Splash Fun, Crafter's Companion
Ribbon: Micheal's-I glued the smaller ribbon on top of the wider ribbon.
Beads: Stash (I used them to mimic the paper with the beads.)
Adhesive: Glue Glider Pro, Mini Glue Dots

Frugal tip: I get a lot of my embellishments off of www. The star beads were one of my hauls.
