Taylor Pond

There's lots of inspiration on the Get It Scrapped blog for scrapping summer activities, including this article on camping.

We went camping often when I was a child. While we have many wonderful memories, we have very few photos.  Because of the poor quality of this photo, I kept it small, but drew focus to it by surrounding it with embellishments. I used woodgrain and florals to emphasis the outdoor theme.  And I saved a lot of space on the page for journaling that captures some of my favorite memories from our favorite camp site.

Supplies: Paper and Die Cuts: KaiserCraft (Blue Bay); Flowers: Prima, Petaloo; Burlap: Recollections; Buttons: Papertreyink; Doily: Bo Bunny; Alphas: AC Thickers (Cherish); Stencil: TCW; Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink (walnut stain, evergreen bough, chipped sapphire, pine needles)
