Blue & Cream!

First off I want to say thank you to my gorgeous hubby for sitting for hours looking through thousands of photos that's he has taken over the last 16 years looking for my camel! Also a BIG thank you to Hazel (didos) for helping me with the writing & getting my camel to sit in the middle!
