Be Prepared…. For A Paper Pretties Blog Hop!


Hi everyone and welcome to my blog. It time to join the Paper Pretties Design Team for our Paper Pretties New Release Blog Hop!!.

The hop started at Paper Pretties Blog, if you didn’t hope onto my blog from Cindy Haffner’s blog, you can head back to the Paper Pretties Blog to start from the beginning.

Today I am using the new Scout Sophia for my project which as you can see is a note book.


I was a Brownie Leader for about 15 years and one of the things I encouraged my Brownies to carry was a notebook. You never know when you might need to write something down, which is why I decided to create one today. This actually matches the card I created using the same stamp set last Saturday, so that they can be given together as a gift when a Brownie makes her Promise.

I decided to make my scout into a Junior Girl Scout, as I liked the colors of the uniform. In Australia our girls are called Scouts but Girl Guides, the uniforms are also different but other then that they basic do the similar things.


Here is one of the inside pages of my notebook. I stamped Sophia and the Girl Scout Motto at the bottom of each page in the book. This will be a good reminder to the Girl Scout of the Promise she made and her Girl Scout Motto.

Well that is about it from me for today, to continue on your journey you need to hop on over to Jackie Rakoski’s blog.

Enjoy the rest of the hop and thanks for dropping by!
