Young Life Camp T-Shirt Designs

Each year, our Young Life (YL) area creates camp t-shirts for our summer camp trip. Usually, the tee reflects current events, popular culture, area-relevant ideas, or even inside jokes from the past year. Here are the t-shirt designs from last year and what we are brainstorming for this year’s camp trip.

BROOKS CAMP SHIRT

The above design features one of our Club kids that has been coming all year. Basically his hair is awesome, he is liked by everyone, and this t-shirt was a huge hit!

Below are some ideas for this year’s shirt. Our area is all about the Blue Crab, so we thought we’d feature it.

We’re thinking about having the shirt be a neon orange-red color. Neon is a big draw and a huge clothing fad right now among teenagers.

Wedding of the Year!

My sweet, sweet friend (and Bayside Bride co-worker), Natalie tied the knot just last month to her boyfriend of 7 years! Her wedding was breathtaking. Everywhere you looked you saw love. I am thankful to not only be one of her friends, but was also a bridesmaid! She even let me head-up a couple of projects like table numbers, several chalkboards placed around the property proudly displaying the couple’s hashtag for Instagram and Twitter, and a few other projects. Here’s a glance at the table numbers and a chalkboard, created by Yours Truly. For more amazing shots of the wedding, check out the talented photographer Katelyn James or the bride’s very own blog post here. The photographs are courtesy of Katelyn James.

My Very Own Wedding

On May 28 2011, one of my 7th grade dreams came true and I married my now husband, Steve. Luckily, one of my good friends was there to photography the entire thing – Krista A. Jones. And thank goodness, too! My wedding was not only one of the best days of my life, but I was able to display some of my talents and creativity! I designed the invitations for my wedding, as well as the programs, seating tags, seat backs, menu, table numbers, guest book, wedding sign, boutonneires, and my present to my husband – cornhole in our school’s mascots and colors. Yes, I built them and painted them myself. Check it out!
