i {♥} papers

My appologies, but  better late than never!  We have a really special blog hop and challenge going on all around Paper Craft Planet (that started Sunday, and Tuesday for my belated Canadian readers, thank you Customs Canada) It’s all about BLING! You can call it paper make-up, jewelry, bling, whatever — it’s that little bit of glaze, glitter and glam that you add to your cards to give them that “finishing touch”. The Supernovas are using the new Petal Press stamps, Summer Garden , for our projects from i{heart}papers.

OK, now it’s your turn! Make a card with a lot of dazzle and you could win the new Petal Press stamps, Summer Garden , for our projects from i{heart}papers. All you need to do is tag your card “iheartbling” and upload it to the Planet. We’ll be keeping an album for everyone that shows off all the entries so far!

Here’s my go with this lovely set that to me called for some pearls …

Matryoshka, from all of us

So I’m lovin’ the template I found at Zakkalife for this Matryoshka Russian Nesting Dolls.

How cute is this?  We occasionally have gifts for the the whole family from others … can you see this as a “Thank You, from All of Us”.  I mean really.  Love the idea.

Wrapping Up C.E.F. Backyard Camp.

Well today is the last day of the C.E.F. -Evangelical Backyard Bible Camp. I thought I’d make a little thank you for the children for coming to the camp. I hope they had fun.

I just used some sticky tape, man that stuff is sticky to adhere a little chocolate in for each child.

Here’s a quick break down of the measurements. I didn’t go by a guide, I just used a 12×12 CS and cut it evenly. It makes 4 (at 3″ wide) per one 12×12. Apparently, I do fold rather evenly when I measured it afterwards.

Okay, I sorta’ stopped halfway through making them to take some pics & left it for the night. (Off to the movies with girlfriend.) I need to pop to the grocery store and get these done before the kids arrive today. Coffee first.

Paper: Paperbilities Autumn Leaves, Soft Sky CS, River Rock Ink, Scallop Punch, 1 3/8″ Circle Punch, Rectangle Hand Punch, Dimensionals, “All God’s Children” Stamp Set (retired S.U.), Ribbon, Sticky Tape, Chocolates. :)

All things are possible.

This week our home has hosted the C.E.F. (Evangelical Backyard Bible Camp). It’s a wonderful program where Evangelical Missionaries (teenagers camp counsellors) come & run a day camp (couple of hours in the afternoon) for you & your neighbours. I wasn’t sure how many children we’d have coming, but thanks to the prayers of many, we have a good turn out. The teens are full of energy & play games, tell stories, sing songs, you name it.

I am responsible for providing snacks and a yard. We used the front yard & that’s how we picked up some more kids in the neighbourhood, as they were interested in what was going on. Oh, yes, I am also responsible for providing a basement in case of rain. Guess what the weather was in the second half of the camp, lol. Baking buns each day & cutting up some fruit & veggies & other various snacks … not much investment for a whole lot of fun.

So really, I personally, haven’t had to “do” anything, besides provide the snacks and give the boys a drive to their next camp. (Marshall and Alex do 3 camps each day. I believe we were the 6th week!) It’s been fun & the boys have been wonderful, so I made up a thank you card for them, letting them know they are appreciated with their hand in making this possible.

On the inside is a book mark. The Cork Paper is from Karen Foster. (I love that PP, in that it is actually cork, not a look alike print). CS: Close to Cocoa, Apple Cidar (I believe PP from S.U. Autumn Mini cat ‘07) The Stamp is from S.U. retired set: “Little Inspirations”, Copper antique brads. I just used a Coluzzle to cut parallel lines in the card to slide in the book mark.

Here’s a close up of the Book Mark. I’m not sure where I got the green paper, but it’s almost like a mulberry paper it’s so thick.

With 2 days left of the camp, please pray for relief from rain, at least on the last day, as one of the neighbours offered to make home made ice cream & with 11-15 kids, I’d like to enjoy it outside. :) As I type this, Liam is snoozing upstairs & the camp is rockin’ in the rec room down stairs.
