You Are Too Kind and Camp Wilberding 2012

It's me again, playing along with more new PaperSmooches stamps.  I had fun using water color markers with distress inks to grab the gradient colors in the current RunWay Inspired challenge.  And...that big huge ribbon?  It came from a whole punch of ribbon that my nana sent home with me when I visited her in April.  I thought it made the colors on the flowers pop even more off the page.  The inspiration photo is at the bottom.

I thought I'd share pictures from a week ago Sunday.  We went over to high school friends to hang out with their family and another high school friend's family. We always have a blast when we get together.  We call our friend's house Camp Wilberding as they have a ton of toys:  a pool, playset, trampoline, basketball, dirt bikes and a huge back yard for games like wiffle ball.  My boys think they have arrived in heaven!  So here are a few pictures! 

Collin having the first turn on the mini bike...he was lobbying to ride by himself...but we decided ten was the age limit so he rode with Mike.

Marcel loving the ride with Pat!
Jonathon first rode with Mike and then got a bit braver and took it for a spin by himself!
And here's the whole crew (even their dog!)  Yes...nine boys and beautiful, Madeline, who is the oldest, but quite a few of the boys have passed her in height!

And this is what happens after 7 hours at Camp Wilberding.  Marcel completely crashed out on the ride home!


  1. Oooh that ribbon is lush, Lynn! It really adds some elegance to your beautiful flowers!
    What fun you guys had! Marcel looks like he's having so much fun on that bike!
