August Scraproom

I just got done watching the scrap room live featuring Freaky Fast Friday

No automatic alt text available.

so with my Hardy Hodgepodge kit from Jan 2017 I created this 2 page layout

I tried a couple different configurations but landed on this one that I mirrored for the 2 page

Got another hike documented.  
This one is Sweet Creek near Mapleton, Oregon

I also used the same kit to finish it off and create a lead in layout for this hike
I used the monthly jump start sketch challenge 

No automatic alt text available.

I kept the basic bones of the layout, but moved the circle over to the second page to give room for the ample journaling.

I also added a 3rd photo to the layout.

Spencer Butte Hike

I've been cruising through the hiking photos and getting closer to the end.  
For this 2 page layout I used the sketch from lets get sketchy

I stayed pretty close to the base of the sketch and altered a few of the photo sizes and mirrored the sketch for the second page.

I also stretched the tile across both pages.
The larger blue circle reminded me of a snow flake so I worked it into the layout as our hike was on New Years Day.  Cold but very sunny

The smaller circle I punched from a larger sticker that had birds on the top and bottom.  
I think the swirl pattern works for the icy feel I was going for.

Almost managed to polish off the last of Be Happy paper pack from CM, 
just a few photo mats and stickers to go.

Project recipe

back in June I went to my CM consultants open house.  I was enjoying some creative time at the make and take station when the kids called about the Chimney sweeep showing up to clean the wood stove and pipe.  Turns out he was supposed to do my father in laws house first and went to the wrong house.  Anyway I had to pack up and head home without finishing a single recipe.  Thankfully I was able to pull it back out during the 4th of July to finish it.  Now to print picture for it.
This one is made with the Star Spangled paper pack

This one is a mix of the new sun-kissed and older sunshine getaway.

I'll post them again when they have photos in them

more hiking

Got another hiking patrol layout done for the scrapbook update...

I created a similar page to the previous one by dragging an olive ink pad across gray paper.  I also used the same sticker set.  The map is a printable of the park trail system.  I outlined the trail we took and journal right on the map. 

Where has the summer gone

Where has the summer gone?  It’s been a busy time... I dropped two kids off at Ultimook running camp and have an up coming Girl Scout day camp, so my morning work schedule has freed up a little as I'm not currently teaching swim lessons.  Yeah me... Now to get the Hiking patol scrapbook updated before Danielle and I head to Mt Hood to help a Brownie troop with their Hiker badge so they can earn their Outdoor journey.  Danielle has planned out all the steps for them as she is working on her Leader in Action (LIA) award.

Step #1 ask an expert-  We going to share the patrol scrapbook and talk about the different hikes we've done
Step#2 Learn to follow trail signs- we will do an actual course at camp. We’ll also talk about leave no trace principles and how it ties into using and leaving trail signs.
Step #3 Ask an older Girl Scout about what to pack.  Danielle wil do a show and tell of her daypack and we will have a discussion and handout of the 10 essentials.
Step #4 Snack- walking Salad
Step #5 Play I spy- Danielle and I have created a trail bingo game that the girls can complete in pairs as we hike.

To get caught up I'm using this sketch from Sketches in Thyme, but rotated it to work with my pieced together panoramic photo of the cascaded range in the mid Willamette valley,
