Spring morning

Here is another scout outing page where I was able to sneak in some
It's proving to be not that difficult to do!

My inspiration for this page was the 1 page sketch from Stick it Down

Moving up the Ranks

Here is yet another scout page.  This is my little guy "moving up the ranks" at the annual ranking ceremony.

This was fun as I used the colors of all the different ranks as my geometrical background.

The inspiration for this page was from Let's Get Sketchy:

BIG adventure

This was a fun page to work on.
I pulled out the jute to use as an accent and a hanger for my banner title.

This page was inspired by sketch #150 from Sketch n Scrap:

Scouting Friends

After working with nothing but Blue and Gold colors, I decided to focus on the (awful) floor tiles from these photos.

Instead of using circles, I switched it up and used squares to match the pattern of the floor.

Here is the original sketch from Sketches in Thyme #322:

Night time hikes

One of the best times we have had on a campout is the nighttime hikes we take.  Since we have smaller boys, we just take a walk around the local reclamation center.  There are plenty of coyotes making noise to keep us company. 

I used quite a few scraps of paper on this page.
Gotta use that up!

I used this sketch from Sketches in Thyme # 321.

Cooking Skills

One of the best things about scouts is the variety of subjects we can scrap.
On this camping trip, the boys had to learn cooking skills on a campout.  The older boys cooked dinner and the younger dens made breakfast.
They did a great job too!

I used sketch #320 from Sketches in Thyme for my page.  
More burlap ribbon (always good for boy pages).
And a few acrylic dots that I have had forever.  

Here is the original sketch:

White with 1 - toffee

This months challenge from 
White with 1 was to use the color Toffee Crunch.  This is always perfect for scout pages.  
I used a white background and a light brown ink pad to distress it.
Kraft papers, and a light brown (toffee) burlap ribbon.
These flowers worked very well too.
I try not to add too many flowers to scout pages, but since there were no boys in this

Passing on the Pack

Working thru the stack of scout pictures and finally making a dent in them...

I played along with this sketch from Sketches in Thyme:

And here is my page:

More nature hikes....

It's amazing how many pictures I take of our scouts nature hikes!  One, because I love the groups that we are able to get out and hike.  Two, I love the sights and sounds of nature.  Our boys are usually pretty well behaved and we always have a great time

Here is my take on the sketch from The Scraproom Blog:

Stick it down 2 pager

I usually don't care to work on 2 page layouts, but sometimes, it's easier to work with when you have so many pictures from the same event.

Here are a few pictures of my son's Arrow of Light ceremony:

I used this 2 page sketch from this month's challenge from Stick It Down:

Ready, Set...GO!!!


My goal has been to finish up all of my son's Cub Scout pictures before the Boy scout pictures started piling up.  

Here is yet another Pinewood Derby race page that I made using this month's sketch challenge from Rochelle:

I was able to finally use up a bit of washi tape and a few metal rimmed tags.

Sad that this was his last race...

Mixing CSI with Disney

Hello there!  Time to get back to work on my blog!  I feel like I haven't been able to scrap in forever!

For starters, I decided to play along with the CSI Challenge #251.

Here is my page:

The evidence I collected was:

solid background

I also incorporated animals into my page since I couldn't figure out how to include a picture of a llama.
