Scrapping for Sean

Happy Friday Everyone! The weather around here has been a little sneaky and teasing us and making it very difficult to concentrate on the tasks at hand. Which in my case would be that Scrapbook I have been talking about for the last couple of posts. I mentioned that I would share a favorite page or two with you, so today is the day. My son Sean is crossing over this weekend from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts. As a parent of one of the advancing scouts, we were asked by the Den Leader to make a scrapbook of their journey through Cub Scouts. I have to say that scrapping is not my strong suite, I am very intimidated by it. I think that is why I have procrastinated for so long... (4 yrs or so). I have the best intentions like most, but then I get swallowed up in all the photos, and the memories, and then I completely lose track of time, and yada yada.. I know I am not alone in this Right? (C'mon someone agree with me out there!!) Whew! that makes me feel better! :) Here is one of my Faves.....


The background paper is non SU, and I used some Cub Scout sticker elements from my LSS, for ease in helping getting this book done. The stars along with the title are SU papers Crushed Curry and Night of Navy, and Tangerine tango.  I added a little keepsake envelope for his badges, and segments that he earned as a Tiger to the page. He could also write down a favorite memory and slip it in there too. :) I look at his picture, and am afraid to blink again..he is growing up SO fast... See what I mean about losing track... :) Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek, and I hope you have a great weekend everyone! Details below -

Wow, we didn't have to do that way back when, I made my son his career scout book after he graduated from college. He is an eagle scout and work five summers at Boy Scout Camp. Tell Sean congratulations for crossing over.
