CHA catch-all

I finally finished my tote for CHA,  My original intention was to get the Imaginisce i-rock tool and add the bling but I wasn't able to find one locally so I had to settle for iron-on rhinestones.  After many mishaps and a little designing I was able to iron-on the bling (the butterfly is a pre-made design, the swirls are completely my own design).  The awesome orange flower embellishement is actually a hair bow I won from a very talented fiskateer on her blog at Faeriey Dust Dreams.  Originally I was planning to wear the fabric flower in my hair and I loved it so much I ordered from her etsy shop, one for my SIL, Mary.  We both loved our fabric bows on our bags that I don't know if they will actually end up as head adornments!

Creating with Imaginisce

Sometimes I get lucky and win a prize...and that is what happened in May.  Pinky (a fiskateer!) has a blog and she has been sharing wonderful ideas and layouts.  I enjoy reading and seeing what other people create and if I really like the project I will post a comment.  As I said, I was lucky, and won a drawing from Pinky at her Much Ado About Nothing blog that was a page kit featuring Imaginisce papers and embellishments.  I really like the paper and wanted to make sure I used a special picture for the kit.  I reviewed Pinky's tutorial on the page layout and this is what I created following her page design.  And yes, the picture is from 2003 and the family vacation is finally going to be scrapbooked this summer (I hope!)  It will be my main project for CHA during the all day crop.  Yep, I am heading to the Craft and Hobby Association gathering near Chicago.  Mary (my wonderful SIL) and I are going to roadtrip, visit a few LSS on the way and enjoy all the crafty goodness at the end of July.  We even opted to join in the Super Crop sponsored by Scrapbook Royalty! Now to channel my excitement into organizing my materials to take along to CHA!
