Scout Pioneer

Alex really enjoys his scouting and he spent some time at Thriftwood doing a Pioneer course....learning different knots and then to build a bridge - and be able to walk on it! using the knots that they had learned!!
It is surprising what a few knots will let you do!!!  Reef knot is about my limit....but if you need a bridge built Alex is your man!!!  I got Alex to tie some knots for me......knowing it would be a good scrapping opportunity!!  He is actually standing on the bridge that he helped build!! 

I knew it would be a good scrapping layout and the challenge at Archi-Scraps is.....KNOTS!!!!


Don't you just love this knotty picture!!! How clever were the bricklayers!!!

The challenge closes at the end of the month so lots of time to get tied in knots!!

Thanks for visiting!!
