KSA graphic design by Skyler Taylor
I took on the project of design coordinator at church for this years Kids Summer Adventure. This was definitely unlike any other design project I've ever tackled. It was very intense since they wanted over the top decorations to go with exciting plans for the week-i love over the top! I do love a good challenge too and God seems to keep tossing them to me...made it through yet another one and it was a blast but, what a huge relief to have this done knowing the kids enjoyed it so much. I'm blessed to have had the experience....here are the details.
The theme for KSA three day event was SUBMIRGED! a dive into the depths of God. Each of the three days the children learned about different areas of the world. I came up with the design ideas and hundreds of awesome serving hearts showed up to help pull it all together for the kids to experience. We spent Sunday night and Monday setting up the underwater theme along with day one area of focus, Japan. Tuesday it was kicked off and that evening we tore down Japan and set up Philipines, tore down Philipines and set up Ghana on Wednesday evening. Thursday when it was all over hundreds of high school kids showed up to help tear down and get the church back in order. I feel so blessed to have been given this opportunity to meet so many wonderful people in the church. Hundreds of people came to serve in helping pull this event together. It was such an awesome sight to see the little ones learning about God and other cultures in this space...check it out.
The kids were sectioned off into crews and the crews into zones...the zones were marked with these awesome treasure chests. I'm so glad I was able to collect so many to use for the event...13 treasure chest in all! Each and every one was so neat...I had one plus, borrowed from friends, family, and a vintage store. I also purchased a few at thrift stores. On the final day, they were filled with candy! What an awesome treasure to find :) My belly hurt all night last night from eating soooo much candy.YUM! This entire experience was a treat too! Thanks for reading.

One of the first invitations I ever put together. It was for a fall, pumpkin themed 1st birthday. I love this design! You can't see the true color in this photo but, there is purple, orange, green, yellow and black in the patterned paper. The ribbon over the orange strip is purple and I love the combination of fonts and also, the fonts together with this single pumpkin.
