Besides John and Jarrod's Eagle Project Book which they put together required by the Boy Scouts to present to the Eagle Scout board that they did at the end of July, I wanted them to have a keepsake album of their individual projects. Granted, I could have made a digital book but I was short on time, mostly because I didn't think about it until a couple of weeks before their Eagle Scout Court of Honor. Instead, I chose a simple 4 x 4 black Amelia album that I purchased from Scrapbook, plus 4 x 4 page protectors.
I found a photo of the Eagle medal that each of the photos would receive at their court of honor to use as the back drop for the album label as well as the 4 x 4 journal cards seen below.
Honestly, I believe these journal cards are my favorite part of this album project. I modified the opacity of the Eagle medal emblem, layered a digital stamp set of lines over top, added journaling and printed the cards on 8.5 x 11 white cardstock. Very simple but they make the albums very Eagle Scout - y.
I chose just a smattering of photos from their project, putting them in the order of the work that was accomplished, telling the story very simply, inserting journaling cards here and there. It's definitely not the full blown story but it's enough to jar their memories as they might pick them up to re-look at their accomplishment.
Pieces of John's project.
A before and after...of just the deck.
Setting the example by not being afraid to get in and work the project also.
And then Jarrod's project too...
I had made an 8.5 x 11 double page scrapbook layout and this was the left side of the layout that I cropped to include into his album.
Humble beginnings for a wonderful cause. An exciting thing that occurred from their Eagle Court of Honor. Another Life Scout who is just months away from his 18th birthday decided he'd go for Eagle Scout and will be supporting the same non-profit organization, Hoofs 4 Healing, that John and Jarrod completed projects for.
Jarrod's project ended up being twice as involved as John's after the city building inspector decided an handicap access stumble-free path needed to be built too.
Everything about their projects were awesome! The work was exceptional, high quality, and just plain rocked!
One of my handsome Eagles!
