The Conclusion of CK Summer Camp 2010

Figured I would do a post on this before the date gets too far away. 

CK Summer Camp 2010 concluded on 16 July, but we were allowed to post our projects on the CK site up through that following Sunday.  I pretty much mentally gave up that Friday and made that my last project day.   Scrapbooking is really not one of those hobbies that you can devote short bursts of time to(an hour here, an hour there).  Despite that, I managed to complete a few more merit badges:  First Aid, Fire Safety, Organization (by organizing my paper scraps), and Crop Fun (by games with S-B-ing friends).  That’s way more badges than I thought I would get.  🙂

Cards are much easier to create than 12X12 layouts so I went the card making route.

The Conclusion of CK Summer Camp 2010

Flag Ceremony Layout

Scrapbooking is incredibly difficult for me!  I have the mojo to craft, but I just don’t have enough ideas to come up with the layouts.  DragonWillow and I spent more time agonizing over what to put on our pages than actually putting the pages together.  Ahh, but now I can sing a little song and do a little dance because I have a completed layout which earns me my Flag Etiquette Badge. 

Its associated layout:   D. and I  love to play Dance Dance Revolution (DDR).  Here we are playing on an old dance pad.

It’s a start!

BAM!!! Nizzy totally earned her Orienteering Merit Badge today at CK Summer Camp 2010.  

I was so ready to give up on Scrapbooking, but after looking at some of the layouts and ideas, I thought, I CAN DO THIS!  I was a little overwhelmed at first, navigating the site, but it  turned out to not be that bad at all.   There are actually  several cool ideas that I would like to try!  Bring it on, baby!

It’s a start!

Welcome to Camp!

DragonWillow here!

I just finished earning my Orienteering Merit Badge at CK Summer Camp 2010. 🙂  Isn’t it perdy?

I still have to earn my Flag Etiquette Merit Badge.  I need to do a layout using flags.  While trying to come up with an idea for the flags, I decided that I’m going to open Camp Gimpy for my son, Gimpy.  (don’t flip, he had surgery and is recovering, and thinks the nickname “Gimpy” is hilarious).  Now, sadly, as I’m still getting my mojo back, that pretty much tapped my creative resources for the day.  That means, I need YOUR help.  What kinds of fun activities can we do?

Keep in mind, I work outside of the home (BOO!) and he’s home with a babysitter most of the time.  We can do some camp-type stuff in the evenings when I get home.  I have temporary tattoos, so we could do that one day.  Tons of movies (Movie Monday?); games; maybe even create our own recipe for dinner; that kind of thing.  He’s not a real arts and crafts kind of kid (*sob*) but I can get him to do some things…maybe Nizzy will teach us how to make those braided key chains?  (*wink* *wink*).   As I never went to camp, I don’t know what kinds of things to do.  Please, please, please comment with some ideas!!!!

I want him to have a fun summer and also to give me new things to scrapbook.  Sadly, he’s 11 and I’m still working on his baby book.  See, told you my mojo was missing for a while.  However, I have made jewelry, cross-stitching, crocheting and sewing, so I DO have some projects to share.  I will have to make a point of uploading  pictures.

Anyway, thanks for joining us here at Creatively Motivated.  I hope you enjoy our creative processes as much as we do!!!

Stay tuned for more crafty updates!
