Give Thanks Crop

Well after a busy week of cutting my friend Rach and I made a total of 409 kits with at least 50 sample pages.  As I mentioned in a previous post these were made for a group of 50 plus kids that are siblings and are all in some sort of Foster Care.  Most of these kids do not see each other more than once a year and its usually when they attend this camp. 

The week not only brings them together to have fun and do some really cool activities but they also celebrate their Birthdays and Christmas.  Through out this whole week photos are taken and then on the last day they all sit down with their photos and scrapbook them.  To make it a little faster and as frustration free as possible I found it easier to make a sample page and cut each piece for the kit so the kids only have to paste down the pieces and their photo down.  Unfortunately the camp was to far out for me to attend this year which is a shame, these kids come from such diverse backgrounds and although its so sad to hear some of their stories it still such a wonderful thing to be part of.  It also make you quite thankful for what you do have with your own family.  

So whilst I'm onto the whole "Thankful" thing, I thought I had better post the details of the "Give Thanks Crop" we are hosting over Colorful Creations between the 5th - 7th of October. 

If you wanting to have a little bit of  fun and try out a new site we will have some great give aways.  Hope to see you there.

Bye for now
