Croppin' Paradise Week #4

WooHoo, Week #4 of Croppin' Paradise Summer Camp!! My challenge this week is all about the Campfire. And it's all about sitting around the campfire at night, with all your friends, telling ghost stories. Well, maybe not scary spooky stories (unless you're really brave, ha ha!!), but good campfire stories. My challenge this week is to choose 1 photo that really tells a story. The create a layout and journal about that story. Easy, huh!!

Here is my layout. I use the Jazyme collection from Bo Bunny. This is a photo of me and my friend Beth. I met Beth in a scrapbook forum about 2 years ago and we became fast friends. This spring, I had the opportunity to meet up with her, her kiddies and her hubbie while they were in Los Angeles for spring break. My journaling is about how we met and our day together.


I love all the coordinating 3-D stickers and buttons and gems in the Bo Bunny collections. It makes it super easy to dress up your layout!


And here is the story!! Using journaling strips is my favorite way to journal at the moment.

There you have it, easy peasy! I can't wait to see your photos and read your stories!!!

Thanks for stopping by...
