Layouts 36-40

The craft fair is finished and for my first I consider it a success.  I look forward to doing another one next year only this time I will start preparing in January and not October :)

Still trying to catch up on this challenge so here is another bulk set of layouts.

More K & Company...finshed off Halloween for 2008.  Woo Hoo! 

I now know the there is only one O in Hokey and Pokey but I was trying to use old CM letters up and now they are stuck.  I hate that I cannot fix it without ruining the layout.  Any tips out there...The paper is either Little Yellow Bicycle or Fancy Pants...it is called Traditions but that is all I remember. 

My love for Memory works continues!

This was the second layout from CTMH Sweetheart WOTG.  My brother had a close friend do the wedding pictures and she let me tag along with her and take pics as well.  I got alot of experience without the pressure of messing up someones wedding photos!

5.  The is an old CTMH paper pack I ordered when it went on sale and it has been great for the Kingston leg of our 2010 trip.  I did 4 layouts for the 1000 islands with it...but cannot remember what it is called.  Magificient or something along those lines I think. 

Thanks for looking!

Missing in Action...

Hi everyone!  Sorry for the long absence and very sorry I have missed so many of your wonderful posts!  I hope to catch up after my craft sale is complete.  I thought I would share a few of the many projects I have been working on!

I found this idea on Nona Davenport's blog http://nonapearl.blogspot.com/ this summer.  She did a series on recycling objects for crafts.  Nona used mass market books for her wreaths and hot glued them.  I despise my hot glue gun so I used pearl pins...lots and lots of pins.  I thought this was a great way to use up surplus paper.  The idea is though the you make fortune tellers (like when we were kids) using 4x4 squares and pin them upside down to get the flower shape.  It takes about 144 squares (12 sheets of b&t).  So a huge shout out to Nona because I am in love with these...if they don't sell they will make great Christmas gifts!

and yes I had a lot of surplus b&t lol! 

I have several canvas pieces completed...this one is my favorite.

 and of course washer necklaces (which once I got them loaded on my gypsy so I didn't have to cut them by hand) were alot of fun!
I have completed pencil boxes, coaster post it note holders, Christmas cards and tags, dry erase boards and 12x12 frames with completed scrapbook pages.  I hope to post more later but I better get back to work :)
