There are three new Eagle Scouts in Trevor's troop. They have been excellent role models for Trevor and I am thrilled to have watched them through their journey to Eagle. The Court of Honor to celebrate one new Eagle was supposed to have been tomorrow, but obviously it was postponed. I'd made his card (and one for the second of the three Eagles) weeks ago and scheduled this post to run today specifically because the Court of Honor should have been tomorrow.
Like the card for Allison and Teagan's HAPPY birthday card, these cards were inspired by postage stamps.
The first card is a virtual copy of the stamp that inspired it. To make it, I glued a blue rectangle to a white card base, added the red and white stripes, and layered the star (die-cut chipboard, painted white) on top. Then I added the sentiment and the rhinestones.
While the first two new Eagles achieved the same rank and both exemplify the 12 points of the Scout Law, they are very different people. For the second card, I challenged myself to use exactly the same materials as the first, but in a different way.
Congrats to all the new Eagles! I'm so sorry we can't come together to celebrate with you right now. Thank you for all you've done to help guide and inspire Trevor and other younger Scouts along their own paths to Eagle. Thank you for the service you've done to the community and all that you've given to Troop 482.
If you've been reading My Creative Life for awhile, you'll know that Bunny Week is an annual event that takes place each March. Starting on Monday, you'll get a week of bunny-themed crafts, layouts, and interesting tidbits about the Best Pet Ever. I've long explained Bunny Week as "Like shark week, only fuzzier." See you on Monday!
