It’s the last week of May and the countdown has started in our household. My DH is fully aware that I will be in full “party mode” this week. “Party Mode” equals “Mad Woman”. Our son Jeremiah is turning 8 and we are going camping to celebrate! For everyone that knows me personally, they know I truly enjoy the art of party planning and crafting fun elements!
Here’s a sneak peek at the camping printable set design. There will be lots of marshmallows and canoes involved. Be sure to follow me on all of my social media platforms for more sneak peeks!
I have several camp activities planned and can’t wait to share the “woodsy” details with you. Wait! Is “woodsy” a word? Oh well. I am covered! I mentioned that I am a “mad woman” this week.
A few of my favorite party gals are hitting the trails with me to make this a memorable event for my little bowtie. Rachel over at Printed Ink is one of them! She always brings my visions to life with her fun, fresh, and modern designs. With the school year coming to a close in the next week or too, it will important to encourage students to continue reading throughout the summer. I asked Rachel to whip up a bookmark design to compliment my son’s camping theme. This means great news for you! I am excited to share my first official “freebie”. You will notice a black and white version, just in case your kiddo wants to design their own bookmark. Just download, print, color, and laminate. To finish it off, punch a hole at the top and add a piece of jute or twine. Be sure to thank Rachel by following her on Facebook for more beautiful designs!
