Scrapbook page - MardiGras-Oct 2007

Getting in the mood for Halloween by scrapbooking the last time I got costumed up! Bought a great digital kit from scrapbookgraphics. Lots of elements and papers and Quick pages, too. The kit is called "Impressions of Fright".
It's been a while since I did any scrapbook pages at all so hopefully this will get me back into the swing of things. There are several vacations waiting in the wings.
I had a great time putting that hat together and the little kids just loved it! I don't know if I'll dress up this year yet. Still thinking on it. Been so busy I haven't even decorated yet!

Yarn Crawl 2010

I picked up the tote bags and passports for the Hill Country Yarn Crawl this morning while at knitting! It starts Friday and the bus tour is on Sunday. This is the 4th year and I finally get to go again. I went the first year but missed the next 2 'cause we went on our long vacations at the "wrong time". This year, vacation isn't until the 15th (Davis Mountains - yippeee!)

I made these two I.D. tags for our tote bags. Oh - by "we" I mean Mom and me. The Hubby would NOT go with me. !!! The tags in the photo are sitting on my favorite Clapotis wrap - the one with several colorways of Noro Silk Garden. Several members of the knitting group are making Clapotis and I kind of want to make a fourth one, but I don't have time. Too many projects already in the works. Fighting Startitis!

I punched the tags out of some Tim Holtz stock - it has Bingo cards on the other side. I used a bunch of tiny scraps left-over from last years' artwork. I plan to tie them onto our tote bags with yarn. The tote bags are all folded into these cute little pouches! And this is what the "passport" looks like. Isn't it pretty? A lot of work went into the layout - it has maps to the shoppes and hours they're open and everything. I am impressed!
This is going to be a fun trip! Hopefully not too much yarn will follow me home......
