Cricky Across the 50 States Blog Hop!!!!

A Big Cricut Hello & Chirp to each of you! Welcome to the Cricky Across the 50 Blog Hop hosted by K Andrew of Getting Cricky! . If you are here from CreateNCraft than you are in the right spot. If you just arrived here and would like to start from the beginning please go to KAndrew's Getting Cricky! For this blog hop K Andrew is celebrating her big move across the country with a big road trip, and of course this hop across the 50 states! She has asked us all to post a little bit about the state we are representing, and then to post our Favorite Craft Project. I am representing the state of Oregon.
Last year we took a family vacation and camped the whole way down the Oregon coast. This was such an awesome vacation. We actually started at the very top of Oregon and worked a little way down everyday. The first place we went was Fort Stevens. We stay in the actual state park camp ground and visited the military installment. It was actually really cool and the kids loved it. The state camp ground was huge, it had over 200 campsite, with really nice showers (always a plus) and its own beach with a real ship wreck on it.
This was the first time my daughter had ever been to the ocean, and even though it was August it was only around 40-50 degrees outside. But I just couldn't keep either one of the kids out of the water.

Constructed during the Civil War as an earthwork battery, it was originally called Fort at Point Adams. Fort Stevens was the primary military installation at the mouth of the Columbia River. The fort was built to defend the mouth of the Columbia from potential  British attack during ongoing regional tensions related to the Pig War of 1859–70 in the San Juan Islands and it was later used in WWII to protect again the Japanese.

 This place was really a site to take in.
Here are some more pictures of some of the other places along the way down the coast. Our next stop was Cape Kiwanda, this is just a picture of the giant sand mountain they people was sand boarding down.
Picture of  the ocean from the beach. Cape Kiwanda is a host of the National Longboard Competition every year.
This is a picture of a lighthouse that we could see from one of the beaches we went to.
The great part about this trip was that we went with my mom and step dad and we just had a blast. It was the first time for all of my family to go to the coast and we got to see and experience some really wonderful places. I will give you some advice if you plan on taking this trip. Pack lots of warm clothes, we were freezing! It was August and we live in NV where it is nice and very hot in the summer time. I don't think it ever got warmer then 55 degrees the whole time we were on the coast and we never saw the sun until we moved inland. It is very wet and every morning everything that was left outside was soaking wet. We did get to have a fire on the beach, very cool! That sort of thing would never fly in NV since we are so dry.
When we moved inland on the way home we stopped at Crater Lake. OMG!!! This place is absolutely the most gorgeous place I have ever been too. The whole lake is surrounded by mountains and the water is crystal clear. It was formed from volcano's that erupted thousands of years ago, and then again forming islands in the lake. You can only view the lake from the top of the mountains and no one is allowed in it(not that you could get to it anyway). The lake is almost 2000 feet deep, the deepest lake in the US. These pictures do not do it justice, but they will give you an idea.
Okay, so enough about Oregon. Here is one of my favorite projects I have ever made. This was a sign that I made for my daughter's bedroom.
If you would like to see more of this sign and details on items used to make it click HERE.

Great pictures Becka! I have always wanted to do that trip down the coast of Oregon. My hubby's family did that before I was in th epicture and they have great pictures of Crater Lake. His grandmother tells me stories of them picking blackberries growing wild along the road and making jam in her camper - can you imagine? Thanks for the tips because one of these days I am going to make my family do this trip. We love to camp but being from Utah we usually camp in the desert. My kids are all teens now so I guess we better get in gear huh!

What a gorgeous sign you made for your girl! I want to make my daughter one too, but I've been kinda stuck on how to start it. Maybe I should think about going vertical instead of horizontal!

Thanks for the chance to win such an AWESOME cart!

First of all, love your blog look. Second, great photos! How beautiful and fun. Love your project. It's so pretty. And TINKERBELL is on my wishlist - what a great giveaway! Our special needs daughter, Bonnie, has been watching the Tinkerbell movie over and over again this week. I kept thinking how cool it would be to get that cart. Thanks for the chance! :) Janis northrose@slowar.com

Great pictures! I drove through Oregon and didn't like it. Mainly because it was just a long drive from Washington to Cali. If I get the chance, I'll make an actual trip there :)

Teela I am so sorry to hear about your friend, I think if you google the ribbons for cancer you would be able to find out which color matches her type of cancer. there is a whole list of different colors.
