White Water Rafting

So, my family and I went White Water Rafting on the Ocoee River in Alabama a couple summers ago. It was a lot of fun, and they take your picture while you're braving the rapids and we bought a couple of them. So I scrapbooked them. And here is the page. :)
The full page view.

This is the little mascot guy from the Ocoee Rafting center place. I made him myself by cutting out a piece of foam and then using white paint to draw him on. The reason I wanted him on the page is because we had been joking about how he had bacon hair. But also it adds to the page.

This is the white water rapids at the bottom of the page. I used cotton balls. Yes, cotton balls. I pulled them apart and glued them down.
The raft actually came from Jolee's Grand Canyon package. It said 'Colorado River' on the side, and since this isn't the Colorado River, I used red paint to cover it up.
The rocks were pretty simple. Gray paper, cut out a irregular circle or oval, ball it up to make it crinkly, and then I used pencil or black color pencil to put hash marks on it to give it a little bit of texture.

Pretty simple, and except for the raft, they are all homemade embellishments.


  1. Using cotton balls is such a creative idea! Great job with the TrailMakers challenge!

  2. What a cool way to do your whitewater waves! Very creative! Thanks for sharing with us at TrailMakers!!
