World Thinking Day

Do your brains hurt from using them SO much this past weekend? Well, if they don't, maybe you didn't know this past Sunday was World Thinking Day. Each year on February 22, Girl Scouts participate in activities, games and projects with global themes to honor their sister Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in other countries. The theme for World Thinking Day 2009 was girls worldwide said "we can stop the spread of AIDS, malaria and other diseases." Gwendolen is a first-year Daisy, so we didn't provide a project, but we eagerly got to participate. This layout features a picture of Gwendolen (in the middle) participating in her first friendship circle with fellow troop sisters. If you look closely, towards the top of the picture, you'll see the legs and feet of the other participants in the circle. There was quite a big turnout, at least for our county--over 100 Girl Scouts. For the layout, I used the Hello Kitty Font, cut from a couple of layers of chipboard and multi-colored cardstock, with black Cricut pen. I also used Going Places for the globe. Again, I just had to use that Cuttlebug butterfly die/embossing combination, using ink to get that double-color look. If you're interested in the cutfile to see how this layout was put together, here's the mediafire link--enjoy!: http://www.mediafire.com/?nznyyzqzwtw
