To say my family is heavily involved in Scouting would be an understatement. My husband is a Scoutmaster, and I am the troop Treasurer. Not a day goes by without a conversation about the troop! The reward for all the time spent procuring supplies and organizing events is seeing the scouts grow from boys into independent young men. This weekend one of the boys in my son's patrol is having his Eagle Scout Court of Honor. This is the highest rank a Scout can achieve. I wanted to make a special card for him that represents his path from Tenderfoot Scout to Eagle.
I started with BSA approved paper from K&Co. I added a knot of twine (knotting is required for advancement and several scout badges), a Fleur De Lis (this is the symbol of scouting), a tent and campfire (for all those countless trips to the wilderness) and a transparency compass (so he knows where he's going and where he's been). And, yes it does actually spin!! Yeahhhh! I did it!! I tried to keep it fun and colorful, yet still special enough for the occasion! And look mom, NO BOW!!
Thanks for stopping by and having a look! Have a beautiful day - oh and always be prepared!
