We Love VBS Layout

This summer our SIL, Christopher, led their church's VBS music and the children's closing service. He did a great job, and the kids loved his leadership, humor, and song choices to reinforce their Bible story themes. He's definitely born to play music, especially his sax. But for VBS, he used his new guitar to accompany the kids from preschool through grade 8. And though he doesn't think so, I think he's born to sing too.

It was Ella's first experience at VBS, in the preschool class, and she loved it! She still talks about her teacher, Miss Renee, and all her new friends, whom she continues to see at Sunday worship.

Emily helped in the preschool room where Bea took her morning nap, and the entire family had a great VBS week. It was fun to create this layout for them using the colorful "You Rock" papers.

I played with the circle theme within the You Rock paper designs, and cut a circle for page 1 to highlight "born to sing", used the Spot on Backgrounds to give some texture to the blue journaling pocket, punched circles using CTMH's new circle punch, and chose tags that had circular punched holes too. Flip Flaps on page 2 allowed me to include additional photos of the week's highlights.

Thanks for visiting my blog and for your kind comments!

Hi Jane! Great layouts - what a wonderful memory and terrific way to get the children excited about church! I love the paper you chose to use - it goes great with the theme of singing and playing guitar!
