We're down to our last challenge of February. You have till Friday at 9pm EST to get your entries in! We'll be contacting a GDT on Saturday afternoon to join us for the month of March and we'll be announcing the winner of our gift certificate as well. Get those entries in.
 I have the last challenge for February.  Originally it was called cookie time- feature making, baking or eating or in my case selling Girl scout cookies.  Anyway the DT was struggling with what to do so we changed it to food based guilty pleasures
"Food/Beverage .. Guilty Pleasures"
What does this mean? Here's what I have to say:
"You know we all have those guilty little pleasures. Our favorite comfort food. This time of year it Girl Scout tagalong cookies for me. So for this week we are asking you to share your guilty pleasures with us- food based only please
I was inspired by creative scrapper sketch 262
I used a box of my favorite tagalong girl scout cookies and cut it into chevrons.
for the smaller chevrons I substituted wooden trefoils.
I scored this wooden 4inch trefoil from a give away at our local girl scout council office
I actually have several hundred  of them that we'll use at day camp as name tags
and then some will go to our older girl camporee for multi media craft projects

 I varied for the sketch in that I didn't use three pictures,
 but instead documented the girls efforts at booth sales. 
Our troop of 28 girls is close to 5300 boxes of cookies sold



  1. This is awesome Haven!! Love how you used the cookie box. You keep your layouts "Real". Love that!

  2. Oh wow Haven, I love that you used the cookie boxes. Fabulous layout, and what amazing sales figures for your troop!! I was a Girl Guide leader for over 20 years and our unit never achieved anything like that number for our Guide bikkies ;)

  3. Haven. Great lo. I have to try the American cookies heard so much about them

  4. Haven, I love how you used the chevrons! Great take on the sketch!
