Bridging to Webelos

Back in June, each of the Cub Scouts bridged from one rank to the next. For Trevor and the rest of Den 1, that meant moving from Bear (3rd grade) to Webelos (4th grade). It's an important transition. Webelos (which, by the way, is an acronym for We'll Be Loyal Scouts) is a 2-year program that prepares the Cubs to enter Boy Scouts. The program is much more rigorous and emphasizes outdoor skills more heavily than the previous years of Cub Scouting.


Some fun facts about this layout: I added the blue border on the white cardstock using a fat marker. I used the same marker to change the letter stickers from a pale blue to the darker blue while they were still on the sticker sheet. The arrow was plain chipboard, also colored with the blue marker. Before adhering the arrow, I peeled it apart to reduce its thickness by half. (I don't like bulk in my scrapbooks.) I saved the bottom portion for a future project and adhered the colored top to the page.
