I’ve got a secret…


…about girls. What do you love about being a girl? Or maybe write a letter to your younger self, or advice to a daughter/niece/granddaughter/special girl in your life.

Featured Designer: Sonja Akins

Sonja used an old ScrapHappy sketch for inspiration!

The journaling reads: Dear Rylee, you have been an artist since you were just a baby. Since you could hold a crayon in a chubby fist, you’ve “drawn” and “colored.” You’re so happy making art! But I’ve got a secret about girls. Besides great artists, we can be scientists & mathematicians, too. I have degrees in math, physics, biology, medical technology, & an MBA. You are so much like me in intelligence, looks, aptitudes, & temperament, that I know you will be good at the left-brain pursuits, as well as the right- ones!
