Sketchy Thursdays at the moment! Unfortunately, even though the sketch is great,
I had a heck of a time figuring out this layout. I even cut up a piece of 12x12 Jillibean Soup I've been hoarding, then realized I didn't want to use it, GASP! Yep, I was a bit choked, but I think it all worked out in the end. This is the first time I've used Coredinations cardstock! I don't a Score Pal or anything, so I just used my trimmer and a stylus to make the vertical lines. Then, I didn't have the right colour for the photo mats, so I just inked some cream paper with Fired Brick Distress Ink. I used some more twine on this one, seems like I'm loving that, too - I used it to make the circle, the title banner, and on the buttons.
Educo is a world famous wilderness adventure summer camp that we're lucky enough to be within an hour's drive of. Jason went when he was a teen, and we thought it would be a good experience for Nolan this summer. Nolan doesn't always have very good self esteem, so hopefully one day he will look back at this layout and realize just how brave he was when he was (almost!) 9. I thought for sure they'd be calling me to come pick him up on the first night, but he made it through all 4 nights and climbed the wall in front of all the parents and guests at the closing ceremony. I'll probably be doing another page at some point, because this was the highlight of his summer!
Supplies: Coredinations and Close to My Heart cardstock, My Mind's Eye and Scrap Within Reach patterned paper, Twinery twine, Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Creative Memories pen, unknown ribbon and buttons
P.S. - My dad's getting out of hospital today, looks like he'll be okay! Phew, what a relief!!! Thanks so much to everyone for your concern!
