Campy Trails to you...

Scrappin' {Sports} Stuff has the new American Crafts Campy Trails line in stock. Yay!!! With my two boys in Scouts (with regular camp outs), you probably aren't surprised to hear that I used my design team credit to purchase almost the entire line.

The line has the cutest little "bits" tags. I used them on my "Happy Camper" as-is for the perfect little punches of color (and patterns). The photo shows my boys ready to leave for Kevin's first ever overnight Cub Scout camp out. I thought the single photo deserved a page of its own.

Next, I did a 2-pager of the actual camp out (or of the pictures Dad did manage to take from the camp out...).
The camp out doubled as the Pack's Klondike Derby. I loved how Kevin was the only kid looking in his book to see what they were supposed to do.For one of Blake's merit badges, we needed to do a family activity. Blake wanted to plant a tree in memory of Pappa.I loved the woodgrain paper for the background - thought it was appropriate. I even have some hidden journaling on this page. It's on the tag peeking out from behind the photos.(Not sure why the photo is upside down...)
I used some of the Bits tags and fabric covered brads as a corner accent.

For my final page, I opted for a kraft background, but mixed some of my Studio Calico Mr. Huey mists to add to add a bit of "something."
Scout sure loves his Kevin. The fabric badge for the line came with an orange border, but I masked the badge and used mist to color the outside border red instead so it would match my photo better.
Finally, with my scraps I made a simple card. My sister is graduating college and moving to Wyoming this summer. I think the card is more than appropriate for the big events in her life.

Thanks for letting me share my projects.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Amy, all of your layouts are adorable! I love all the papers you used, especially the woodgrain-my fave! The tags with matching brads is too cute and NOT girly- perfect for your boys on a camping trip!
The card is precious... I love making cards with my scraps too! ;)
