My Girls..

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you're having a great day. I'm still feeling poorly, but I wanted to make some little treats for my Awana girls to give out tonight. If you're not familiar with Awana, I like to cal lit a cross between Girl Scouts and Bible Drill. The girls (and boys) ages 3 - 6th grade come and learn Bible Verses, play games, have group time...it's just a really great time. Ava is in her last year (womp womp) and she's thoroughly enjoyed it. I've taught her class - the same group of girls - since they were in first grade. It'll be hard next year and I haven't decided whether I am going to follow them to the Youth Group or not. :)


Anyway, so I saw what Debby made today and thought that would be perfect for the girls. Hers are fancier than mine, but I like the way mine came out. ;)


I used this week's Curtain Call Challenge colors:




Here are my treat bags:



And a close up of my favorite 3:




If you look closely, you'll see that some of them have "flaps". I decided to not to cut the card stock down to 9 inches on those and just scored it again at 2 inches to make that part. I thought it made a kinda different look that I liked. :) I also used lots of Stampin' Up Rub-on's that I got from my Secret Sister over on Splitcoaststampers. I had absolutely no rub ons before and let me tell you -  I adore them! They are so easy to put on and look just as sweet as pie! The rub ons are the balloons, clouds, "love you", and "xoxo"...aren't they neat?


Well, that's all for me. I'm going back to sleep. Thanks for stopping by. Laters!
