American Pride-SOUS Challenge
Happy Thursday! I'm again super late in doing last week's challenge...I mean another new one comes out tomorrow. It's been another roller coaster of a week here. Between still helping out my parents by being at their house while contractors were getting things repaired and feeling super crummy from a flare with my Rheumatoid Arthritis...I haven't had time or even felt like scrapping...which I hate because I love to scrap!! My dr is working on getting me on a new med and some pain meds too to help me get over this rough time. Anywho...I did manage to finally gte this LO done. I designed it last Friday when I saw the challenge but just got around to starting on it yesterday. This is the first LO that I've completed for Max's Cub Scout album! DH and I are Scout Leaders for Max's Den and we scheduled our Den to attend a Flag Education and Flag Folding ceremony at our local American Legion. This was a requirement for them to earn their Wolf Badge. We had a wonderful time and the boys all did so well. They each got to fold the flag and they learned what each fold meant. They also did an outdoor flag ceremony and got to raise and lower the flag. At the end of the evening, they were each presented with a certificate. I based this LO off of the Stuck On U Sketches (SOUS) sketch from 2/19/10. I used my Cricut for all the cuts. George for the circle and stars, Stand & Salute for the title and soldier, and Base Camp for the USA dog tag. I distressed everything and added a beaded chain to my dog tag. Printed papers are from an old DCWV Summer Stack. I blurred out the face on the other Scout in the picture with Max.
