Pinewood Derby



As soon as I saw the Faded Jeans Scraptastic kit, I knew that one of my pages this month would highlight a scouting event! Anyone with Cub Scouts will understand what a great kit this is for scout activities! The blue hues and yellow are well matched for their uniform and neckerchief. Going through my photos, I found the perfect picture.


On my Pinewood Derby page I mounted the blue patterned paper over yellow cardstock, adding photo corners all around. Next I layered blue and yellow patterned papers above and below a ticket border. Then I adhered several of the kit stickers to chipboard and used them to decorate the top half of my page, leaving room for my title.


The tags here are purely decorative! I love using them this way...sticking out haphazardly and tied with twine. 

Blue and yellow is such a great color combination. Don't you think so?

oh those little labels at the top that say original and stuff are PERFECT for this page. I love the way you used those tickets and the cute decorative tags at the bottom with the twine. One day I will go back and do some pinewood derby photos, but the quality of those photos I took just werent that good.
