This past weekend I took 18 girls camping… no joke.  And 14 parents too.  It was the first camp overnight for my Brownie troop of 2nd graders.  As expected the weekend provided some wonderful memories and photos to document them.  I came home and immediately wanted to create a page for my daughter in our family album.  The hardest part was deciding what photos to use out of the 158 choices I had!

This layout is for my daughter, like I mentioned, so I used kid-friendly fonts and die cuts.  My little Brownie even did the handwriting on the trail sign post on the right.  (Notice the spelling of “hikeing”)  I used Therm O Web Sticky Strip Runner for all the photos and photo mats.  I popped up the focal group photo with Therm O Web 3D Foam Squares.  To attach the canvas border strips, I used Therm O Web Zots.  The fun was really in making the camp fire in the upper left-hand corner.

I die cut the camp fire with my Silhouette.  First, however, I lined the yellow shimmer vellum with a Therm O Web iCraft sheet.  The iCraft adhesive is so thin and transparent yet strong it works great with vellum.  I cut one flame with the yellow vellum on iCraft and a second flame out of just an iCraft sheet.  I hand trimmed the iCraft-only down to make a separate layer.  I added that hand trimmed layer on top of the vellum layer.  After peeling back the iCraft backing I added orange and yellow glitter to the top layer.   iCraft sheets and dots are so versatile!  I just love coming up with new ways to use them.
