Stamp it with a song

The new challenge at lasting memories is to stamp it with a song.  So song title, lyrics and a stamped image as well.  I wish I could say I've got mine done, but I'm slacking and here's why.
For the last couple of weeks I've been living and breathing scouts.  
 We just had a big 220 camper service unit "ninja"  camp and are gearing up for an older girl "I'm crazy and not afraid to show it" camp.  So needless to say the only songs running through my little brain are scout songs.  I have two in mind ( by the light of the campfire and barges), but need to print the latest batch of camp photos

So it's coming

Hanging out

I finally got to do a layout just for fun
 and I'm super excited to be able to play along with the page maps boy-girl challenge.

I flipped the sketch on it's side and used three smaller photos instead of one,
but you can still see the the sketch in my layout

I replaced all the flower elements with butterflies and bling.
  I also replaced the date tag with half of a butterfly.

I hope to get in some more layouts just for fun now that I have a break between camps.

alphabet challenge at lasting memories

This weeks at lasting memories it is an alphabet challenge. 
So what is an alphabet challenge exactly? Well it's up to you.
  It could be that you choose a letter and scrap about something related to it
 like I did with my  B Layout on books

even got a little bonus "B" going with my brads

 Or it could be just using alphabet paper like I did for the background. 
 You could even include your letters in the LO like I did on this older layout.
See definitely open to what ever strikes you.

Hope you'll join us for the challenge

Inspired by a TV show

This weeks challenge at lasting memories is inspired by a TV show
I have to confess that I love Nathan Fillion, but I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to scrap either Castle or firefly so I went with the discovery channel.  Yes channel- because I never really watch it. We have been cable/ dish free for over a year so if it isn't on the local channel we don't get it.  I image that they probably have shows on petroglyphs. 
So here's my take
Not many place like this left.  Where the girls could walk up and almost touch the carvings and markings.  Don't worry  they were instructed not to because contact with the skin can break down the sandstone. The hiking patrol  was very fortunate to have a troop leader that was familiar with the trail and cave.  Mo told us about the history and use of the cave as well as what most of the carvings meant.

Top left is the hunting party.  Can just make out the heads at the top of the T's
Top right is the bear family by the river
 Bottom left is the hunters, river and a few other symbols that I have forgotten
Bottom right looks like a bird with something written inside of it

Hope you will join us at lasting memories this week

few more girl scout pages to share

The middle photo isn't a creek, that's the trail. 
Like I said earlier "In Oregon if you wait for it to stop rainnning you'll never get out and hike"
and to think we're behind on the rain this winter

I'll bee there with members of our service units hiking patrol to demonstrate making bracelets with para cord. Hopefully we'll sell a few to raise funds for the summer overnight hike. I also just
 finished scrapping the hiking patrols last hike so I have more a finished album to share with people that are curious about our group and what we've done.

Single photo at lasting memories

This weeks challenge at Lasting memories is to create a layout using only one photo.
This should be easy, but I had to make it more complicated then necessary.  I've been trying to figure out how to document one of my latest geocaching finds as I'm rather excited to pick up this traveling bug.

It's not even a real photo, but a computer print of the info sheet that goes with the bear.
I do have photos of Juliette that are on the second page of the layout.

The journaling is from the travel log that goes along with this travel bug.  I decided to write it out so I could shorten some of the enteries to make it fit the space, however you still get the general idea of her travels from Idaho to Oregon. If you want to see more or follow her progress you can track her on

Second page of the layout shows

 Juliette's trip to the Eugene Service center to pick up a few items for her journey.  The council patch has been tacked to the back of the vest and the t-shirt and dog tag layered on over the one she came with. 
 The other two photos are of our hike to Soda springs falls with the service unit hiking patrol

I used the favorites tag to do bullet point journaling for the photos

Hope you've been inspired to join us this week at lasing memories

Juliette Travel (Bug) Bear

I've been so busy that I haven't had a chance to share with you.  I found this cute little bear stuffed inside a cache outside of the Adventure Center- Geo Headquarters (McK#1) 4/19/13
Since then she's made a trip to the Eugene Service center to get some more girl scout gear for her journey
