Happy Father's Day!
Happy Father's Day to all the Father's out there! This layout isn't really a true Father's Day layout, but it is of my brother and nephew, such sweet photos taken by my SIL. I just had to scrap them. We had a nice Father's Day celebrating with my Dad and spending time with the fam....even got some time in stamping with my niece and scrappin'time as well..can't beat that! This layout was one I made for my stint as this week's camp counselor over at Camp Personalscrapper! We are having a fun summer camp starting this week. You can earn badges by completing each week's challenge and this week my challenge is a scavenger hunt challenge! You create a layout based on the things on you "list", the more things you add to your layout the more points you get (20 points max) and the winner is the one with the most points! I used to love scavenger hunts....the best ones are where you have to do silly things...and in this digital age it is fun to be able to capture it on video or film...i.e. one of the challenges I saw online from a church group was to smile at someone and when they said "hi" to say "I have new socks!" and capture their reply on video...or go into a restaurant and then ask patrons for the parsley off their plates...or how about this one...get a picture of a human pyramid in the front yard of a stranger's house, but the kicker....the homeowner has to be in the pyramid! I was laughing so hard imaging people's expressions on some of these...however, in the times we live in now, it may be dangerous to do some of these things, people are not as friendly as they used to be and might not think these things are to funny! I know when I was a kid it was a common occurrence to have someone knock at your door needing something like a roll of TP etc for their list...and in my 15 years as a homeowner, I think I have had it happen only once that I recall...so not as common anymore. But back to scrappin'...this layout is worth 15 points...you can see my list HERE. For this layout I used My Mind's Eye papers from the Stella Rose line, buttons and puffy sticker are from that line as well. I also used my Stampin' Up punches for the flower and to add a bit of texture, I used my newest STampin Up sizzix embossing folder on the middle of the flower. Letter stickers are Thickers (blue) and My Little Shoebox (small grey). I hope you can join us at Camp Personalscrapper soon, I know I'm on a mission to earn all the camp badges this year!
