My featured Merit Badge Awardee of the Week is … Kristina Nelson!

Kristina Nelson (FieldsofThyme, #800) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning a Intermediate Level Scrapbooking Merit Badge.

“I have been adding elements to my own scrapbooks, such as crocheting small items using #10 crochet thread, embroidery, and fabric.

I created a scrapbook to give to my husband. I know the badge suggested giving one to a ‘younger’ person, but I have 6 kids to choose from. So, I created a memory album of our most happiest times together (just hubby and I) taking weekend getaways.


The most memorable weekend for us was going to an island on the lake. It was so relaxing that I placed a caption on the cover photo “Is it Island Time?”

Inside the album, I have photos of our trips together. I have placed them in a photo album that has a space to write small stories as well. In some of the photo sections I cut card stock and created a small memory of those trips, using items from the vacation. For one I used very tiny shells, a receipt from a memorable meal, and a shopping bag label with the island’s name.

I left room for hubby to write about some of the photos, and will add to this album as we continue to take time for our marriage.

I shared this with Farmgirl Sisters, and a bit of it on my blog.

I also borrowed the book ‘Saving Stuff’ and read the required chapters. I will continue to preserve family photos and memories.”

    What a lovely gift and keepsake! Kristina is so creative all of the time. I am sure her husband and her family will love to look at the album again and again!

    Ah-h-h! Memories of weekends away. I’m sure your hubby appreciated it very much. And keep those memories coming.
