"Picture Perfect" YW in Excellence Invite

So I got an email from Erin last week asking if I had any ideas she could use for their Young Women in Excellence invitations. Of course I couldn't say NO and my brain jumps at the chance at a little creativity so here's what I came up with for her.
I guess the theme they are using for the night is "Picture Perfect" which I thought was super cool! Erin also said that they wanted to convey how "Picture Perfect" the girls are in exemplifying the YW values in their lives. So good!!! I used the theme of their YW organization this year inside the "framed picture". Anyway.... I thought it would be fun to share this on my blog since there will be lots of YW in Excellence nights going on over the next few months! Maybe this will help with ideas for some of you! ♥♥♥

Lesson #39 - Drug Abuse

I thought with this being October and Halloween quickly approaching that I would do a Halloween type handout for this lesson. Here is the link to the witch hat which I just sized how I needed it then printed onto cardstock. Once I printed it I cut it out and added the ribbon to it then used some foam tape/pop-dots to make it stick up off the handout a little. I love dimensional stuff. It adds some personality. You don't have to add the ribbon. There's a cool yellow buckle on the original. Here's the pdf for the handout you can print up too. Super cute and easy! Just how I like them!
OH!!! I also wanted to say thanks for all the Love & feedback on the previous post! It's sooooo cool to see and hear where ya'll are checking in from around the globe! You still have until Wednesday the 21st to post and get entered into the free handouts drawing! Woot! Woot! ♥

Thanks! and a Handout Giveaway!!!

So.... I was thinking...
I'd LOVVVVVE to hear from anyone who checks in here. I have heard from many of you from many parts of the world and to this I say THANKS!!! It's heartwarming to know that I am, in a small way, helping to put some smiles on a few faces through the sharing of my creations/handouts. I know my girls at church love them to pieces so I get all warm and fuzzy thinking about how many other young women are out there on Sundays feeling a little extra special because their leaders did something a little extra special for them.
I thought I would do something fun and give you some added motivation to leave a comment on this post. Anyone who posts and lets me know where in this big ole world you check in here from will be entered into a drawing to win a set of 12 handouts of your choosing! You can choose from the previous ones I've done or you can hold out and choose from some I create down the road. Your pick! ♥ When you do leave a comment be sure to leave your email address (I'm the only one who sees it) so I can contact you if you're the winner!
Sound fun?
I will do the drawing in one week from now on Wednesday the 21st!
Toodles! ♥

Lesson #38 - Nutrition and the Word of Wisdom

Several times throughout this lesson it mentions our bodies being "Gifts from God". It seemed only natural then to wrap an empty box.... Give a GIFT to each Young Woman to serve as a reminder to take care of their bodies. Adding a tag that reads: HOW ARE YOU CARING FOR YOUR GIFT FROM GOD? This is another QUICK & EASY handout. Something fun though! this font is called Cheri and can be downloaded for free HERE. If you want to use the potee person logo on the tag I shared it in this previous post.

Hey everyone! Just a heads up that I won't be posting a handout idea this week. I'm taking the week off because of our 179th Semiannual General Conference. Enjoy!

Be back to creating Young Women's handouts next week!

Until then... just wanted to share what I am up to on a personal note! I've launched a Monthly Card Kit Club!

You can find the details on my personal blog.

Have a great weekend everyone! ♥
