Last year Sanne went to the IJVO for the very first time. The IJVO is always being held in the last week of the summer break. It's a kids camp in our city where kids (grade 3 - 8 ) build and paint their own fort (their 'home' for the week), do crafts and all kinds of other fun activities. Sanne was very enthusiastic about it and enjoyed every minute. As soon as the IJVO was over she told me she wanted to go again next year. Fleur has never been to the IJVO, but last year she said she wanted to go too. Last month Sanne and Fleur registered themselves along with their group of friends and today they would hear if they got a ticket. Places for the IJVO are drawn by lot. 1,992 kids registered themselves for this year's camp and only 1,700 kids can participate. Fortunately my girls and all their friends got a ticket. Needless to say, the girls are excited.
During last year's IJVO one of the volunteers took this photo of Sanne. I love this photo because the smile on her face represents her feeling during that week. She was worn out at the end of the week, but she loved it and had a blast. I wanted to scrap this photo and used Cosmo Cricket's Togetherness collection which I received at the time of the IJVO last year. This page was published in the Scrapbookmagazine early September last year. The design is based on a template from Sweet Shoppe Designs, but I don't recall the one I used.
Thanks for your visit.
