Middlesex Cty Youth Safety Camp

My sister had a great find this summer...FREE CAMP! Turns out the Middlesex County Sheriff's Department offers a free safety camp every summer. Different towns go different weeks. Of course where I live doesn't participate (damn boonies) but my sister's does! Jessy slept at her cousin Devyn's house for the week of camp and the two of them were bussed to the camp every day. They supplied lunch, a hat, t-shirt and had a really cute graduation ceremony on the last day. Unfortunately we discovered this camp a little late since it's only for ages 9, 10 & 11 and they're both 11. The two of them learned lots of do's and don'ts with safety, visited a police station and fire station and did lots of other stuff while having alot of fun. Jessy also learned how to bug your parents until they put on their seatbelts...alright, that's a good thing. This pic is of the two of them at graduation.

Frosty Fun

Boy, I wish this picture was better because I love the way this card came out. It's mostly old CM paper that I never use, a cute little stamp of the month stamp I purchased at IAI a couple months ago, Kaleidescope Ink, stickles & the sentiment stamp is AMuse. I used the Silver stickles on the Ice Cream so it sparkes really cute.

Glitter Cards

I took a fun Glitter Card Class at Ink About It last week. These are the 4 cards we made. My favorite is the butterfly card. I love the colors and the stamp! I can't say that these are my favorite cards I've ever made but I learned that I can do alot more with glitter than I realized. Of course I came home COVERED from head to toe in glitter!
