  • WEEK #1 | LETTERS HOME

    Hello everyone and welcome to our first week of Summer Camp. Your camp counselor Stefanie here with the letters home challenge. This challenge is a journaling challenge.

    I love going away on holidays and seeing the world, but this is not always feasible. When we stay at home my daughter has a list of things she wants to get done. It makes me smile, seeing her so goal oriented. So for this challenge you should mention what your ideal stay-cation would look like, or what you do to make the summer holidays memorable.


    My example page uses Gorgeous Girl from Cornelia Designs.



    This example was made by Jan and uses Tranquil Papers and Elements by Sahin Designs and Be Inspired N7 Templates by Dunia Designs.

    Have fun and don't have too many smores.

    Rules:
    1. Your layout needs to be new for this challenge and contain at least 100 words.
    2. Your journaling should be in your own words, speaking as though you would if you were writing letters to someone at home.
    3. Load your layout into the challenge gallery here at TDP and into this thread.
    4. Layout must be completed by 11:59 pm ET on Saturday the 7th of July 2018.

    Thanks for the opportunity to remind myself that these photos represent local day-cations I can take advantage of.

      that does look like a beautiful part of the work, and I love your title - day-cation (that is a new word to me, but I love it!).

      Thanks for playing along with our challenge this week, I love the small peeks into your choices and the happy yellow background paper. I love looking at what I have and finding contentment within that.

    I used a Template from Wishing Well Creations called Tiny Paper Bits and a collab kit by Scotty Girl Design and Wishing Well Creations called Where We Live.

      what a striking page! I love the bright coloured paper pieces, on the black background paper, but your journaling echoing around the page underneath the photos and paper blocks looks brilliant!

      those sea animal doodles/elements are so cute on your page! I love the borders you ahve created too, and the sun at the top - so topical (or should that be tropical!?).

      I love being at home too with no need to go anywhere at a specific time. Love the split background and the homely elements you added. Thanks for playing along with our challenge this week.

      I love the home-y feel of your page, the slightly wonky paper strips at the sides and the pennant banner all add to a homemade and relaxed feeling.

      I love it, some people think it's boring but it certainly sounds idyllic to me. Love the bold playful title and the interesting cut outs of the BG. Thanks for playing along with our challenge this month.

        It's the perfect challenge for me as we're having stay-cation this summer. We'd like to share our time between hiking and swimming. I hope the weather will be ok.
