Scrapbook Page: Halloween - Not So Spooky

This is a very simple page.  Simple punched circles embellished with stickers that came in the paper pack.  I used a little bakers twine on the title.

Daisy Girl Scout Craft Day

I survived holding my first Daisy Girl Scout Craft Day.  I had lots of help from the other moms or I don't know that I would have made it. 
Here are the projects I came up with.
First we made bookmarks from paint chip cards punching out different shapes down the side.  Then we used the punch outs for cards.  The girls made bottle cap necklaces, clay ornaments, and decorated purses.  Their favorite projects were the melted crayon art and playing with the air dry clay.
I made each girl a bag with a custom tag to hold all their projects.  As they came in to room they were given a apron to wear and I took their picture for the back side of each tag.
I had our local bakery make St. Patty sugar cookies for the party.  I'm not a big sugar cookie fan but these are so good (I think I've had 3).
It was a very full day of scouting.  After the craft day Hubby and I took P to the Scout roller skating party.

DIY Smash books for Girl Scouts

I was in charge of our Daisy troop meeting for Girl Scouts this month.  I decided on homemade smash books as our craft.  This is a great way to use lots of odds and ends you have in your stash.
The girls are all in 1st grade so I had everything pre-cut and ready to go, all they had to do was assemble them in the order they wanted.
I used cookie boxes for the cover.
I used patterned paper, notebook paper, old pages from books, tags, envelopes
index cards, border punched cardstock, even old playing cards.
I used a zutter to bind them together.
I tied ribbon to paper clips and let the girls use washi tape to flag pages.  The girls loved using the confidential and private stamps inside.
