What I've been doing....

So over the past few weeks I have been busily working on getting things ready for Girl's Camp. Besides being gone for 3 days camping with my family...I then left for 4 days to camp with the Young Women.
We had a great time!
Here is some of what I have been working on:
(the front of our cabin)

Although I wasn't in charge of the actual decorations for the cabin...I was in charge of the gifts we gave to our Secret Sister Ward. ( And I don't seem to have a single photo of the gifts...darn it!)
I planned out 4 days of gifts: 
  1. Your EGG-stra Special (a basket filled with eggs full of candy)
  2. You've been BOOTED (actual cowboy boots filled with old time candies)
  3. Your not only LUCKY, Your Blessed! (real horseshoes decorated with flowers in all the value colors)
  4. You ROCK! ( A basket full of hand painted Prayer rocks)
Besides the Secret Sister gifts I was also in charge of getting our stick horses made...all 21 of them!! 
I think they turned out great! I don't seem to have any great shots of them but here are a few:
(I will be sure to take a couple of mine and Michaela's)

I also have 2 other BIG projects in the works! I have started paper bag albums for each of the girl's to have a place to put their Camp memories in. I am still working on those...since I have 20 to make...hope to have those done this week or so! I also have a couple of birthday gifts I am working on.....

But I did get this baby album done for my friend Melissa and her new baby girl, Jillian. 
She loved it and I'm so glad....
I was chin deep in camp stuff but I wanted to make sure she got it before I was totally exhausted from camp!

Well there you have it! This is what I've been so crazy busy doing the past few weeks. I will surely post pics of the camp books when they are done..as well as the birthday gifts! Who knows maybe I'll actually get some personal scrapbooking in this week! Fingers crossed!!
