Treats for the Brownie Troop

Yesterday was the Brownie Troop's Halloween party. All the girls dressed in their costumes. They played games, dance, played musical island (like musical chairs but with towels. When the music stops the girls must have both feet on the towels. If anyone is partially off they are out and we remove a towel.) Made a few crafts and of course had some snacks. These are the snacks I made. I wish I had more time to make them look nicer (scarier) but I think they still turned out cute and the girls enjoyed them. The Frankensteins are marshmallows dipped in chocolate and the the other treats are cookies on a stick. 

After I made them (I had them standing in a big bowl of sugar to dry) I didn't know how I was going to get them to the party or display them. Then I came up with they idea of putting Halloween paper on a postage box and then cut slits in the top to stick the pops. Worked out great.

Thank You Card

This is a thank you card I made for the Brownie Troop to sign and say thanks to one of the girl's Aunt who made a generous donation to the troop. Since our troop is new this year, we started with no funds. We meet every Thursday right after school, learn about Girl Scouts, make crafts and work toward earning patches.

I used cardstock from Jo Ann Fabrics, a leaf border punch from ek success ( I love their punches - they save so much space), ribbon from AC Moore. The face stamps are from Fiskars "Happy and You Know it Clear Stamps". I colored them with pencils and the Brownies signed their names.

Halloween Layout

Off to see the Wizard...........for the past two Halloweens my daughter was Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. Here is a two page layout. It is really very simple. I didn't want to take away from the paper. I bought it about two years ago and I finally got around to scrapping her Halloween pictures. I love the base paper, but also the gingham  and red sparkle paper.
