I wanted to give all of my Brownies something special once our year was over.  Several of them are moving into Juniors and will probably not be in Scouts again.  I wanted to give them something that would emphasize all their wonderful traits that we all know and love about each of them.  At the beginning of the year all the girls introduced themselves and said something positive to describe themselves.  I wrote it down and used it as the first page in their books.  Later in the year the girls wrote (on paper I pre-cut to size) things that they liked about another girl.  Like a good leader, I took billions of photos for all of our activities, being sure to get a good single shot of each girl at each event.

I made these all from scratch -- I cut the chipboard to size and covered it myself.  All the papers were based off the girls favorite colors and their personalities.  Each book it extremely detailed, with layers, inking, stamping, and embellishments like flowers, brads, stickers, etc.  In the very back is a nifty folded pocket page, I got the instructions from Mini-Scrapbooks.  I made a total of 13 books at about 7 hours each.  The last several pages were autograph pages.

That is one of the best and most generous ideas I have seen. How great of you to make something so special, and so personal for those little girls.

Your books look fantastic, I bet they will be very well received.
