End of Year School Picnic

It is that time again, the end of the year school picnic. This school year has gone by fast. I will have a 4th grader next year and an 8th grader! Wow! Where has the time gone?

Our Cub Scout Pack 21 is cooking and selling the food again this year for Westwood for their end of the school year picnic! We will add a station to send off Stomp Rockets. Any kids interested in making one, our new Webelos Scouts will assist them in the construction of one and then the students can send them off. Here are some photos of previous years we've done Stomp Rockets as an event. This is fun for people of all ages as you can see!

Catching up...

Summer is almost here... isn't it? 
We've been so busy this 2014 New Year, the boys are doing well, active with all their Sports, Robotics and Cub/Boy Scout events. I am looking forward to the Summer when we can relax at the campground! I've done a little crafting here and there, I really need to get off the computer more (Facebook & Pinterest) and get to playing with paper more often! Here are some crafts I don't think I've blogged yet. 

I made 16 of these little campfire centerpieces for our Cub Scouting Blue & Gold Banquet. It has become a tradition, I made them for the tables and then the Webelos 2 Scouts/Parents may take one home with them as a thank you for being a part of our Pack!
I got a great deal on a huge box of 2x3 size magnets at a Thrift Store in Big Lake last year. It is a great project to use up scraps of patterned paper and misc. stickers and rub-ons!
 Here is a "chevron" themed ATC Card I created for an online swap on a stamping message board. I love making these little masterpieces.
 These are a bit more time consuming but really make a big statement I think. These are mini clipboards out of regular old drink coasters you get at restaurants/bars. Cut paper to size or find the Lifestyle crafts square nesting dies. I added half of a regular post it note pad, a binder clip with some washi tape on it and tied a pretty ribbon on top. I sanded the edges of the paper once I adhered it to the coaster. I like the 'worn' or 'faded' look on my projects.
 Here are some more magnets using up some scrap patterned paper and stickers. On this set I dabbed some acrylic paint on the edges to make it stand out a bit more!
 I was a in secret sister swap online and created these mini cards. I believe I got the package of envelopes at Joann's and just used patterned paper and stickers for the front of the card.
 This ATC was for a Valentine "Love" swap. I have a lot going on here, but I like the look. The lips are a stamp and so is the "Love Beyond Measure" message. The pink hearts, two people holding hands and XOXOXO are Washi Tapes! Oh how I do love those Washi Tapes, I am a little obsessed with them!
