Lazy Blogger

Gee! My last post was the 4th of July??? Where is the time going? For most of the last two weeks I was working at my "real" job - and we had Freshman Orientation, so I was there to meet, greet and register our program's new students - It's always fun to see a new class come in - so young and tentative - and to be able to witness their growth by the time they graduate is incredible! I have been fitting in a bit of scrapping this summer - definitely not as much as I had expected to do.

This layout is from a Kodak Moments sketch that I just loved - and as soon as I saw it, I knew the picture and papers I would use.
This paper and chipboard is from the Prima Dude collection. I used Core'dinations cardstock and sanded around the photo but it did not show up very well. The alpha is SEI and the little soccer balls are Queen and Co. felt. I used pop-dots under some of the stars to make them stand out and lately i have been into tying buttons or chip buttons with fine hemp used to make macarame bracelets. I really like the look. I started a Flip Flop Album with the ACBailey July Goodies Kit of the Month,
but I haven't put any pictures into it yet. These My Mind's Eye Papers were just perfect!! I always struggle with yellows and oranges, but both the LO and this little album turned out quite well. I have the August Goodie kit sitting on my table and it's just gorgeous. I need to get working on some layouts and projects with those supplies for the launch of the kit on the first of the month. Since I will be a CHA in Orlando and won't be back til very late on the 30th, I really need to get a move on because I don't print my own photos and I will need to decide which ones I will use and upload them to Costco. Enjoy this very warm summer evening!

Two of my Little Guys

are Cub scouts and a few weeks ago had a Moving Up ceremony. In an earlier post, I spoke about Colson receiving the Arrow of Light Award, which is the highest Cub Scout Award that can be earned.
I did a 2 page layout with some of the photos that I took of the ceremony, the citations he received and his Bridge over to Boy Scouts - and instead of journaling, I wrote a letter to him. The papers are called Industrial Park - great blues, golds and grays, perfect for Cub Scout layouts and come with a die cut that looks like a big gear. This layout was about the message, not the design - actually hand cut that Arrow Symbol - and used my Wishblade to cut the rest of the title. Cameron moved up to Webelo, so I used the rest of the paper to do a layout of him getting his new neckerchief. He is well on his way to earning the Arrow of Light for next year! For this layout I used Thickers for the title and Making Memories Mini Alphas (boy, I love those little things!). I crack up with the Webelos - I always want to say "Webelos Wobble but they don't fall down". Does anyone remember those toys, or am I showing my age?
