It's Mr. Campy time!

I remember late last summer I made a special trip to Archiver's for no other reason that to purchase the Mr. Campy line of papers by Cosmo Cricket. I knew the first time I saw it that it would be perfect for fishing pictures I had just taken. Well, I did use some papers to make mini album gifts for my mother-in-law and brother-in-law for their September birthdays. But everything sat in a bag (a ziploc "kit" bag).
When our power came back on and I was still thinking "warm, summer" thoughts, I decided to break out Mr. Campy. The line did go great with our pictures from fishing at my mother-in-laws on Tom's birthday last August. It was a fun afternoon of fishing with the cousins.
"Go Fish" is for Kevin's album. He became quite the little fishing pro on this outing!
It was a real fun day, so I did a little play on words for "reel fun" - get it?!?
My brother-in-law calls their home the "Wild W" so I thought the title "Where the wild things are" was appropriate for a page that included his kids. (Mine can be pretty wild though!)
Blake's day started out a little rough. He was slow to catch anything in the beginning, but that changed. Amazingly, all five of the kids caught something (several times). Since we were fishing on Tom's birthday, I came up with "fishing party." Sometimes it's hard to get a good title!
Here is the cousins' page for Blake's album.
Here is a page showing Blake's success at the lake in Grandma's backyard. It was a very fine day, indeed.
Finally, I just had to make a page about Tom and his brother. They both showed up in camo shorts. Whenever I see something camo, I joke that "I almost didn't see that..." It drives Tom crazy. To play on that note, I used ghost letters for my title to spell out Camo - because "you almost can't see them!" (Don't tell Tom I posted this page!)
I'm ready for warm weather...

Amy, I love all these gorgeous layouts, in fact, I used up all my Mr. Campy (didn't get much just a few papers and the stickers) to make a camping layout, but now I MUST have more! You did a great job using the same papers but making each page look so different!

Very cool LO's!! I find it hard to think of titles 100% of the time so I think you do a pretty darn good job!!
