Kaleidoscope's Sketches

One of the ladies on my scrapbooking message board, Kaleidoscope, posted a challenge to use one of her sketches to make a layout and to make an envelope and card from one 12 X 12 paper.  I used two of her sketches, the first almost exactly and the second just the photo layout idea.  Here is what I came up with.  Again, these are of Nathan in his first year at camp.

Explosion of Fun

This layout was made using a Scrapbook Generations May 2013 kit.  This was Nathan's first year at Camp Stewart the best boys camp that there is!  He is there right now spending his 9th summer.  This first year he went for two weeks.  When we picked him up he dragged his dad to signups and told him "You are signing me up for a month next summer, this was WAY too short!"  He has gone for a month every summer since then.  In the bottom left hand photo is Nathan with Si Ragsdale, the owner of the camp.  It is one of the few photos I have of Nathan and Si.  Si died a couple of years ago and his son Jeepers Ragsdale now runs the camp.
   In this photo you see Nathan first playing golf and first doing archery, both things he loves to this day.  He is also riding which is probably what he is doing at camp this very minute!  He is happiest when he is at camp!

Cards and New Layout

I took a very good card class at Novel Approach in Friendswood, TX.  I was 30 minutes late to class and missed the instructions on the first card so I didn't realize I was supposed to stamp second or third generation stamps so that card didn't turn out very well.

The owl was made by cutting in half a scroll die, adding flower cutouts as feet and attaching ribbon scraps with scor tape.  It was easy and fun.

The wash tape card is realy cute.  It was made using 4 types of Washi alternating laying a horizontal, a vertical, the other horizontal and the other vertical.  It was super quick and can be used on so many different cards if you need a quick one.

The flower card was made by crumpling up circles, uncrumpling and crumpling again.  My hint on this is to be careful because mine ripped a couple of places.  There are two of each size circle layered.

Good Day

Here is a layout using the May kit from Scrapbook Generations.  I used a few extras from my stash to give it a little more depth.

These were photos taken while Carly and her friend were on the bus on the way to a soccer game.  There must have been 20 of these on her phone so this is just a small sampling.

The kids are off at camp for a month.  Nathan is a ranchman and Carly is on the quadrille and war canoe teams so it will be a busy month for both of them.
