Farm Camp


Next week is FARM CAMP week here. YAY! The kids love this annual trip out to Gentry's Farm so much. Me too!!! 
This is a page that I did about last year's camp. Journaling is hidden behind the photo:
This layout features lots of Jenni Bowlin papers and her adorable milk caps. The buttons were my grandma's and they're tied with various jutes. I used every star punch and die that I own to cut out all these stars from my scraps! AhHa! True SCRAPbooking! Some of the stars are not even whole as the scraps of paper got kinda small but I just tucked the "bad" spots behind other stars. It took forever to ink all the edges but I wanted that aged look to go with my altered photo. I ran around the edges of the kraft with my sewing machine, I just love not having to sew perfectly!
Come over to Let's Scrap this week, Cheri has this great sketch up that features a wreath on the first page.
 Maybe I will even be able to get a second page done for this one...

I saw your DT layout posted on Lets Scrap. I've been a member for a few years now and love the site. I want to say that I love everything about your Camp layout. I can not get enough of star embellishments!!! I have all boys in my life and its a great embellishment alternative to flowers. Hope you don't mind if I scrapjack some of your ideals. I know what you mean about inking all the edges of those stars!!!!
