I'm back with another scout layout.  I'm almost done with 2015 just have the Pack Christmas Party to do and I'll be ready to roll out 2016 Scout pictures.  Still trying to get up to date so as events happen I can just print and create.  I know I'm dreaming.  Besides my husband needs to get on the ball too and do the journaling.  I can only do so much. 
I used sketches in thyme #189 as my inspiration

and here's my take:
I stuck close to the general layout of the sketch except for bunching the photos a bit.  I wanted them to mostly fall on the Green text paper (K and Company scout paper)  I like the words but they were a bit too outdoorsy for the layout.  How ever the color worked really well with the ribbons that I made the stripes with.

I journaled directly on the background paper as
 I didn't want to cover it up completely with a journal box.

I also cut back on the number of embellishments in the layout to just the one big one near the photo cluster and the gear chain at the bottom. 

Originally I thought I'd journal on the chain but wasn't sure it would fit or be easy to follow around the gears.  Instead I added my won hand draw highlights for more texture

I cut the title with Boys will be Boys circuit font on my new Cricut explore.  Had a tough time figuring out the dial setting for the sparkly blue paper.  Some of the edges didn't come out super crisp but I'm learning

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope to have another layout up soon
