Girl Scout Cookie Time

I wanted to share with you all what I have been doing ..... yes... it is Girl Scout Cookie Time and I am out with my Senior Girl Scouts selling cookies.  Our first night was Fri, Oct 28 and it was VERY cold out there.  The girls are participating in two service projects... Operation Christmas Card and Operation US Mint.  Both projects are supporting our Military personnel.  Last night we had 30 people sign Christmas/Holiday cards for the Military troops.  They are off to a great start.....

Ciera & Rachel selling Girl Scout Cookies.  Savannah Smiles are the new cookie for the year and is the 100th anniversary cookie for scouts.  Ciera is holding one of the cards she made for patrons to sign for the Military Troops.

40 Days til Ocean City Shoebox !!!!!

Here is another sample of what we will be doing down the ocean hon !!!!  I had fun putting together these decorations... I am thinking holiday decorations.... These look much better in person.

The paper is Stampin Up Spice Cake.  I used the scallop punch for the trip and a mustard button from the new Stampin Up Holiday Mini Catalog.

The paper is Stampin Up Berry Bouquet.  Again I used the scallop punch and the red glitter paper and the new silver gliter paper from the new Stampin Up Holiday Mini Catalog.

This paper is from a brick of paper I had around the house but the glitter paper and punch is Stampin Up.
