Not Just Cookies

Greeting Blog Readers!  Hope your week is starting out well.  Last week was quite busy with February requests for Stamp to Cope events. I am so excited that Stamp to Cope is becoming recognized as a service in our area.

One request came from a beautiful young lady who is working toward the Girl Scout Gold Award.  The Gold Award represents the highest achievement in Girl Scouts and is quite an honor to achieve. Part of her project is Breast Cancer Awareness and she has asked if Stamp to Cope would do an event for her troop and adult leaders. We are thrilled to be a part of her goal and to share important breast health information with such a fine group.  As some of you may know, my Mother is a life long Girl Scout and is still extremely active in her local area.  My personal contribution to the scouts is the large amount of support I give to the cookie sales each year :).  

To prepare for the Gold workshop, I spent the weekend planning and prepping supplies for the event. Ultimately, I created these sample cards that the scouts will be able to make for themselves. The festive style patterned paper, hearts, and layering will focus on Breast Cancer pink and a Valentine's theme.  I decided to go with three possible looks so that each scout can make a set.   The event will be held February 6, 2012 in Lexington at 6:30pm.  Please check out our website for more specific details.

STC is so excited to team up for such a worthy event. In talking with the young ladies of the troop, I am reminded that Girls Scouts are so much more than cookies.  Blessings,
