Cub Scout Rank Advancement - Scrapbook Page: Creating with Black and White

My son Morgan has been in Cub Scouts since a Tiger, and he is now about to crossover to being a Boy Scout.  Each year he has done a ceremony to move on to the next rank from Tiger to Wolf, Wolf to Bear, Bear to Webelos, and Webelos to Arrow of Light; and part of the ceremony is getting your face "war painted" to symbolize the next level of achievement.  I took a picture each year of his painted face after the ceremony took place (before he wiped it all off) to capture the moment.  He is now moving on to By Scouts and I thought it would be fin to see all the years of his advancement in a single scrapbook layout to show his journey.

Here is a video tutorial on how to I made this scrapbook page.

I joined in a challenge by a friend Christine Meyer to Craft with Black and White - use it as my background page or as my focal point for the scrapbook layout.  She is offering a $20 gift certificate to for leaving a comment on my video and also on her video below.

Here are some up close pictures of the layout using clay for embellishments, Rinea foil or a little sparkle, and some fun Canvas Corp papers!

I had fun with framing the pictures by cutting out "frame" and layering them on the page, one I kept straight on the other I tiled to an angle.

Using a label maker to give the title below each picture helped pull together the feel of the typecast paper int eh background.

I used the navy frame border as my journaling for the layout, fun way to add in a journal using using the elements already on the page!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my page!!
