I used Stampin' Up! Crumb Cake envelopes and cut some cardstock to make these journals. The envelopes provided pockets for fun things they collected. I also provided them some ideas for using the journal.
I used packing paper to make little "cards" to insert into the envelopes. They could do leaf rubbings on them or draw a picture. I was sure they would be able to do this in their free time. LOL.
I also left some pages for them to write about their horse since it was a horse riding camp. Notice that I'm using my retired stamp sets. I know that's not fair to you all who want to get these stamps but I have to say that even as a demonstrator I do use my favorite stamps for fun projects for my girls, scrapbooks, etc. Never get rid of your favorites.
So I spent some time making this journal but I also made cute packages with toilet paper tubes. Here's the ones for Amanda:

I had stamps made with their names on them because I knew it would be good for doing stuff like this.
Inside the tubes are charms for their bracelet. They had so much fun trying to guess what charm would be next.
Here's a picture of the girls with Dad on the first day of camp. We checked in at the front of the camp then hiked to the cabins. We helped them find their beds and set up their sleeping bags.
Leila and Amanda checking out the cabin.
Numa was their Camp Leader. She was super nice.
I will also show you pictures of the cute cards I made the girls too. I made sure to send them three cards each. Can you imagine writing three letters to each girl and trying to make each one unique and different than the others. LOL. Not easy.
Well that's it for today.
