I survived VBS 2016!

We participated in VBS last week and the kids had a blast! Our church hosted 1,000 children for VBS and we had an amazing 300+ volunteers. I coordinated the special needs VBS and it went wonderfully. I had fantastic volunteers, and the kids were amazing of course! This weekend I'm spending some time resting because I'm not feeling well. I seem to have picked up a cold at VBS. It's funny because the same thing happened last year. I guess wherever there are children there will be germs?

Anyway, my down time means that I have an opportunity to blog and that's always a good thing. I created this layout featuring a photo of Brandon making a face because he was worried about touching muddy water. We were straining the water through a sieve to see what types of animals we could find. I didn't blame him for being grossed out. It was pretty icky. Luckily, he warmed up to the idea quickly and started splashing around in search of bugs and crawly things.

I also made a card out of the scraps that were leftover after I made my page. It's a quick, generic card that would be good for a masculine recipient. 

I used Scenic Route's Grafton collection to design both of these projects. (Yes, I'm still hoarding Scenic Route goodies.) I loved all of the green papers and embellishments because green is my favorite color.

Great projects! I recognized the SR right away because I'm still hoarding it too.

Fabulous projects. Good for you for working at VBS - that's always a challenging task, but wonderful in the end.

Great graphics on both the card and the layout and such a fine job with Vacation Bible School.
