This was one of those projects that looks way harder than it is. I got an overhead projector and used a transperancy to view the image on the wall. Then Just lightly trace with a pencil, and paint. So easy!

I also had each girl write 2 talents each of the other girls in the class has.
the 6 steps to develop our talents
1- we must discover our talents. We should evaluate ourselves to find our strengths and abilities. Our Friends, and family can help us do this. We should also ask Heavenly Father to help us learn about our talents.
2-Be willing to spend the time and effort to develop the talent we are seeking
3-Have faith that Heavenly Father will help us, and have Faith in ourselves
4-Learn the skills necessary to develop our talents. (taking a class, asking a friend, read a book etc..)
5- Practice using our talent. Every talent takes effort and work to develop
6-Share our talents with others. using our talents is what helps them grow.

These are super easy! Black and white pictures turn out best but Color pics also work. Just buy the Ink Jet T-shirt paper that you can run through your printer. (If you use text remember to reverse the image before printing so that it irons on corectly). If you are doing them in black adn white switch your printer settings to print with black ink only. It will work if you just print them normal but it will give them a slight green hue.
Then just Iron onto Canvas (Duck cloth is pretty much the same as Canvas and is sold by the yard at Walmart for cheaper than regular Canvas) Then staple gun onto a piece of wood and add your ribbon to hang it. Pretty dang easy! Add other embelishments, glitter, ribbon, nailheads, etc...

Examples they gave were:
School- To study for tests all week instead of the night before.
Home- Have their moms teach them how to make their favorite dinner, etc...
Church- to memorize scripture mastery's.

"Troubled sea, when it cannot rest.... There is no peace....to the wicked"
I wanted to do a message in a bottle for their handout this week. I looked everywhere for cheap bottles but wasn't having much luck. I found a six pack of Orange Crush bottles. The bottles were really plain and the "orange crush" stickers were easy to remove. The six pack cost me about $3 so each bottle only came to $0.50.

They were REALLY easy and felt is so cheap! I took some of the discussion topics from the lesson and tried to make them sound fortune cookie-ish.
Each bag had 5 felt cookies, and 4 real fortune cookies. I ended up putting the quote inside the bag with the fortune cookies.

1st- We talked about our self image. If we have a poor self-image we fail to benefit from our own strengths and talents. I loved the quote by Eleanor Roosevelt "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent". Our attitude about ourselves helps us SUCCEED.
