If you've just starting following along I been on a bit of a cub scout layout spree
and here's the reasons why.
1. My husband has to do most of the journaling as I haven't been to all of the cub events and I want him to get it done while it's fresh.
2. My husband Ben is the wolf Den leader so I'm sure that things are going to start running together if it's not done soon.
3. The Eagle Scout themed pack meeting is at the end of this month and I want to showcase how you can document the boys path to Eagle. It will be a blast to pull out the scout albums during the ceremony and say remember when. Also I won't be scrambling at the last minute to pull it all together.
4. I also want to show case my talent so that when the silent auction comes around at this years Blue and Gold banquet people will know what kind of pages I can help them create if the price is right.
I used the following sketch from Stick it down
I love all the large circle elements as they remind me of baseballs and what better way to document Pack 52's overnight at the Eugene Emeralds game.
I made a few tweaks to the sketch
like using the tickets instead of the banner elements and the photo at the bottom is smaller as I wanted more of the ball open for journaling
For the square elements at the top I used photo booth style photos cut into 2x2 squares
I also stretched the title across both pages and left off the banners again
this photo was also cropped to be a bit smaller so that the wrist band my son wore would be about the same size of the picture and you get to see more of my freehand stitching on the balls
I hope you've enjoyed my take on the sketch. I'll be back with more photos of my son and his fellow cubs as I have the rest of 2015 to current to finish by the end of the month. No pressure
