A bit of Masculine creating fun!

It's official...I am addicted to Facebook (the games) and am seriously wasting my life away (or at least all of my computer time) on there. Restraint is in order so I am trying to put a blog post together for you...LOL! I promise to try to be better from here on out!

I have some masculine projects to share with you today that I have been working on lately. 

This week, Jacob is at Scout camp so I have been making him cards to send while he is gone. This first one is a small 3 1/2 x 6 1/4. When I made it, I was thinking that it would be fun to take the front off and then use it as a bookmark...

The basic layout of it is from last week's Mojo Monday sketch. I just never got it uploaded until now.
Supplies Used:
*Unity Stamp Co. This is the Time (star and oval numbered background in main frame)
*Unity Stamp Co. Bliss & a Birdie (You Rock sentiment)
*WRMK sports paper (pennant background)
*Cosmo Cricket Jack paper (orange plaid and striped)
*Fancy Pants paper (blue and orange)
*orange seam binding
*Marvy Uchida punch

This is another card to send to Jacob at camp and this one was based off the SCS sketch from last week (SC213)....

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Hullabaloo
*Unity Stamp Co. Sentiments O' Simple
*DCWV Green Paper Pad
*Martha Stewart seam binding
*MME adventure ticket
*copper brads
Finally, for the cards...this is a card that I made for Ben for our anniversary (which was Saturday)/Father's Day card. The outside says "Confession" and then the sentiment inside says, "You stole my heart". Both of those stamps are from the Confession: I luv Unity stamp kit. The grill is from the retro bbq kit that was released last week.

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Confession: i luv Unity
*Unity Stamp Co. Retro BBQ
*DCWV Green STack
*Stampin Up Top Note die cut
*corner rounder
*copper brads
*watercolor pencils
*Memories brown inkpad

And finally, I have something to share that is a bit out of the ordinary. The older Scouts in Jacob's Scout troop are going to a High Adventure Philmont Scout camp this summer, Double H in New Mexico. They were looking for a design for their shirts so I played a bit with some clip art and layering and came up with this design that they chose...

How fun is that?!?!? I am so excited...almost feel professional...LOL!  You can click it to see it better, but the quote is from Thoreau and says "Let your walks now be a little more adventurous" which I thought was appropriate for this event. 

And here are my adventurers modeling their new shirts...

Ben in his very manly pose and...

Jacob in his! I love these guys!

I know what you mean about Facebook, because I am completely addicted to Pet Society :0p

Very nice job on the shirts and the cards. My son and husband were seriously thinking of Philmont this year. Maybe next when my son will be almost 10. They love the scouting adventure!
