Camp time!!

Summer is here, it's camp time!!

My daughter, Macy, decided that she wanted to go to Girl Scout camp this year and for a full week!

I put off putting a care package together for her and decided at last minute that I wanted to make her a camp journal to take along.

I always have a drawer full of alterable items. I remember buying albums from Target's dollar spot years ago. I'm notorious for saying I'm going to make multiples of something to give to the grandparents and great grandparents each year. But, each year, I never get around to doing it!! So, I had a ton of albums to choose from to make the camp journal.

Over the last year, scrapbook manufacturers have been coming out with a lot of camping themed lines. Being a family of campers, I love that!! I went through my stash and gathered up goodies from Bella Blvd, Bo Bunny, October Afternoon and Jenni Bowlin and went to town on altering the album for her.

I just LOVE the Bo Bunny camp chipboard!! It adds great dimension! I added some Stickles to the pieces for my little diva!!

On the inside, I wrote a little note from the 3 of us wishing her a great time, making lots of new friends and telling her we love her and can't wait to hear about it! She loved it when I gave it to her this morning!

Before we left this afternoon, I had her write her feelings on the first page. We sent her along with some disposable cameras so we'll add pictures when she gets those back!

  1. This is really cute! I came for a visit hoping to get another peek at the items that you worked on this weekend. I didn't get to see the completed California Dreamin' with the bright letters! :)
