  • WEEK #2 | LETTERS HOME

    Hi there Summer Campers! How is everyone liking Summer Camp so far? This is always one of my favorite times of year. So many great challenges... leading to so many great layouts!

    OK, so here we are in Week #2, and I'm your camp counselor for the WEEK #2 LETTERS HOME challenge.

    This week's Letter's Home challenge is going to focus on... GRATITUDE! Ahhh, one of my favorites. Life can get so busy and hectic and stressful... sometimes we need to pause, take a breath, and remember what we're grateful for. Doing that always helps calm my mind and set me straight again. And these days, I feel lucky to have so much to be grateful for. So I want to hear what YOU are grateful for. What gives your life meaning? What brings you joy? What puts a smile on your face? I can't wait to find out! So put your scrappin' hats on and create a layout that features at least 100 words of something you are grateful for. Could be one thing... could be a list... it's up to you!

    Here's a sample page that I created about one of my biggest sources of gratitude...



    [ this page uses goodies from Rachel Hodge (Baby Boy) and the kit is from Dawn By Design (All Boy) ]


    And here's another example layout that fellow camper and creative team member Ashley created...



    [ this page uses Rachel Etrog's July Stuff kit & pocket cards ]


    Meanwhile, here's a look at the official rules...

    Just to make sure you can get your Letters Home Camp badge, here is the fine print:
    • Your creation must be a new page or project that uses at least 100 (one hundred) words of journaling about something you are grateful for.
    • You must use 100% TDP products, and your layout or project must be loaded into the gallery no later than 11:59pm PT on Sunday 7/14, 2019.
    • Once you've loaded your page or project image in the CHALLENGE GALLERY, please leave a comment in this thread and link us back to your page or project in the gallery.
    • Once you've posted your page or project here in this thread, copy the URL of your post from this thread... and add it to the Summer Camp 2019 Tracking Thread.
    • Most of all... have fun!

      Aww love this! Great journaling. Where in WI do you live then? I grew up in Milwaukee. I miss the lakes so much... I'm in Phoenix AZ now and there's just something so special about the midwest, right?! Thanks for playing!

    Thank you mocamom for your lovely comments. Glad my layout put a smile on your dial! Your reply certainly put one on mine. Re photos, I am slowly (very slowly) getting the hang of taking selfies. I'm very glad of the timer function, but don't tell anyone I use it! Haha!

      This was super challenging for me because I don't usually journal, but I loved how it came out

        Looove this!! I am grateful for so many of those things too! I'm not sure I would survive in NYC! I could live in the country away from everyone. My anxiety would get the best of me...lol

        So sorry for your loss, love the way you are able to find good things to be grateful for regardless. Love the dark edge to your page and the delicate stitching so very symbolic.
