The fee is $150 per person for the three-day weekend event. The cost includes all meals and lodging. A special presentation will take place on Friday for those who are new to album-making. Aqua Brown will share the value of a keepsake album tradition while providing inspirational ideas and how-to tips.
Aqua offers products and services perfect for chronicling your autumn adventures and back-to-school activities. Here are just a few ideas:
• Photograph and document back-to-school routines (picking out new clothes, buying school supplies, attending open house events).
• Use Creative Memories School Ensemble to capture your child’s school years.
• Use journaling boxes with an array of colored pens to capture all of the little details that make life so vibrant.
• Use a Fridge Frame and Calendar Pages to record summer routines and back-to-school activities.
• Take photos of the first day of school. Why not create a tradition and take your child’s photo in the same place each year. It’s a great way to note the changes in your child’s growth and development.
