Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

Ribbon and Gymnastics : Great Scrapbook Project for Kids

Easy Scrapbook Project for Kids

I meet weekly with High School girls to do Bible Study, Crafts, and Baking.  I want to provide a safe place for girls to talk, encourage one another and hear truth in love…

(Titus 2)

This week I have an amazingly talented and disciplined group from a local gymnastics team.  They are putting together scrapbooks for the graduating seniors.  It has been such fun to hear about life as a gymnast:)

Easy Scrapbook Project for Kids

The girls joke around about how they all have animal print “leo’s” (leotards) so naturally they chose animal print papers.

I had the girls cut out “Base Cards”  that measure  5 1/2″ X 7 1/4 “

&

Printed paper taped on top that measures 4 1/2″  X 6 1/2″

(allowing room for ring holes)

Rings were purchased at Staples.

Each printed Rectangle is ready for a team snapshot.

We will be adding cute little pockets on some of the pages for team members to write & insert  encouraging notes.

I am so blessed to have the time to “craft” with young girls.  It provides such a fun and interactive vehicle for me to make a difference in the lives of girls who can get so easily discouraged by the culture and the fast times we live in…

We’re running out of  ribbon, so I think I’ll get some fresh ideas from
