Having Fun at Jr Camp

My boys love going to church camp. When my oldest was 9 years old he went away for a full week, without Mom or Dad. We missed him terribly, but he loved every minute of Jr Camp!

  • Design Inspiration: In my BPC class Scrapbooking Outside the Pocket I talk about pairing 4×6 photos with 3×4 journaling cards. I used that same design principle on this layout as well. So simple!
  • Color Inspiration: Several of the photos had grey and green so I used that to inspire my color choices.

I was only able to snap a couple of photos before my son was shoving me out the door. 🙂 So grateful for social media, and having friends at camp that would send me pics of my kid! As I frequently do I used a full size 4×6 photo along with a photo collage. (If you want to make your own follow my simple photo collage tutorial)

For my journaling I created a list about what my son loved about camp and what I loved. I alternated ink colors to differentiate between the two.

I actually created this layout just after he returned from camp…2 summers ago!! I’m so glad I have this story documented because I never would have remembered these little moments if I hadn’t written them down at the time!

In the bottom corner I added a word sticker, some washi tape and a few enamel dots. This layout came together in no time, and is a wonderful way to remember my son’s first week away at camp!

In our house there are no screens during the week, so Fridays are their first chance to bust out the phones for a bit of down time.

One of my good friends is turning 40. For her birthday her husband arranged a concert in their home. And we actually got to go. So glad our evening turned out the way it did! Good music, good food and good friends!
