Girl Scout Week

Festive Friday Challenge ! Girl Scott  week

March 8th, 2020
Girl Scout Week is observed next on Sunday, March 8th, 2020. It has always been observed the week of Girl Scout Day.

My cute badges highlight Friendship and Birthday .

he Girl Scout motto is "Be prepared." In the 1947 Girl Scout Handbook, the motto was explained this way: "A Girl Scout is ready to help out wherever she is needed.

Girl Scouts' birthday, March 12, commemorates the day in 1912 when Juliette Gordon Low officially registered the organization's first 18 girl members in Savannah, Georgia.

Golf Mini album

Golf Mini album : 

My son every year attends and helps with our local golf camp. I made this chipboard flip book with hinged clip  with pictures and fun quotes and lessons on each page. A perfect gift for the golf pro that runs the camp.  Lisa

Mardi Gras * House

The chip board house is inspired by the New Orleans and song. House of the Rising Sun with the Sun shining in the window. And black floral of the metal work around the house. 

There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it’s been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I’m one

Index Card scrapping

Scrapping with index  cards books  can be fun way to explore your creative side. The small size of the individual cards ( 3 x 5) makes this the ideal place to start an easy  album. 

Suggestions  for your mini albums : 

  • Address Book: Add photos of loved ones and your favorite friends and family sayings to the divider cards .
  • Birthday and Anniversary Reminders: Use seasonal embellishments to mark off the months, then embellish birthday and anniversary date cards with favorite photos.
  • Gift Lists: Keep track of clothing sizes, favorite colors, and other information you may need when shopping for presents.
  • Recipe Box: Decorate this project with photos of your favorite dishes and your loved ones enjoying special holiday meals.
  • Calendar: Create a handy space to keep track of appointments and things to do
