A Promise



Recently my friend and I started a little Camp Fire Troop for our daughters.  As a child we both grew up in either Girl Scouts or Camp Fire and really relished the experience and wanted to provide that for our daughters as well.  We chose the organization that worked out with our timing, not because one was better than the other, but I really do like the Camp Fire promise- 

"Young people want to shape the world.
Camp Fire provides the opportunity 
to find their spark, 
lift their voice, and
discover who they are. 
In Camp Fire, it begins now.
Light the fire within."


In celebration of this, I wanted to make a fun little card for my daughter, so I made her a Camp Fire vest.  I used many little stamps from various Lawn Fawn sets (Summertime Charm, The Sky's the Limit, Say Cheese) to make little badges to put on the vests representing various achievements.  I cut the little bits and put them on various punched circles. I even added faux stitching around the edge as if they were sewn on.  Inside is a little banner with the congrats message.  I hope she likes it, but I know she will. :)  Here are a couple of other shots from different angles. 



I am entering this into Lawnscaping Challenge #76- Dust 'em Off.  The supply I am using that I don't often use is the various punches for the circles. 



Thanks for stopping and I hope you have a great day.

Katie, this is sheer delight; something your daughter will absolutely adore, as do I. The little achievement badges are fabulous and, of course, the vest shape is simply way, way, way toooo sweet! Awesome! Lucky girl to have such a special mom (and mom to have such a special little girl!).
