Super Scrap-a-Thon sketch # 6

This is from when I went with the Scout troop to Alabaster Caverns in OK. We squirmed on our bellies through pitch black, mud and water filled tunnels. The last one we went through was aptly named "Fat Albert's Intestines"! Afterwards you hop in a field shower with your clothes to get some of the mud off, then you trek up the hill to the COIN-OPERATED shower to strip and get clean. Believe me, at that point there's no amount of money you wouldn't pay to get in that shower! Then you throw your clothes (and I mean ALL of them) in the dumpster. It was a fun experience and I'm glad I did it. Don't think I ever need to repeat it though. Base is Night of Navy Textured (how I love SU's textured CS!), DP is retired SU called Timeworn Paper Relics. Title panel is Close to Cocoa, punched with MS punch "drippy goo". Boot and flashlight are stamped from Roughing It, SU retired. Photo mat and letters are Cool Caribbean, using Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge. Copper brads are SU. In the pic I'm on the back row holding up 2 helmets and Matt is right in front of me waving. Had a lot of fun with this page! Thanks for looking!
