Hi there,

I have a layout to share that was submitted at Scrap the Girls for their March Challenge, which is a Color Challenge, to use Black, White and Green on your project.

I decided on a layout using a sketch by designs by diana (Sketchy Thursdays).
This is Linda and I at a Boy Scout Camporee, which is a weekend camping out.  We get to "supervise" the boys as they cook, clean and participate in a variety of competitions and challenges throughout the weekend.  I think the best part for us is that we don't have to cook or clean up the dishes after!!  Woo hoo!

Supplies used:
Paper: Colorbok, DCWV
Border Punch: Stampin' Up!
Sticker Title Letters
Green Mist: Home Made
Perfect Pearls Mist: Forever Green
Sharpie Marker
Wire ribbon was added slightly over a punched paper strip, above the journaling.

Journaling reads:
Linda & I (Leaders of our Boy Scout Troop) at a Fall Camporee - a weekend of camping out and fun events for the boys.  It's fun for us too!  Sept 13, 2008

The green misting on my background paper is mist that I made.  I watched lots of tutorials and finally made my own.  The splatters are not on purpose... that's from a cheap spritz bottle!  I definitely need to purchase spray bottles for a bit more $ so they will mist the way I want!  of course, it's perfect if you want large splatters!  :)

To make my own mist, I used Metallic Paint, pouring enough in the bottle to cover the bottom of the bottle.  Next I added rubbing alcohol to the bottle, filling it only about 3/4 full.  Then have fun misting!  :)
You can see the shininess to it... which is so cool. 

Flowers were added with green gems for their centers.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a wonderful day!
