Christmas in July!

I worked on last years Christmas photos and my DH's birthday photos. I am not sure in some cases what paper I used. I do know that the Christmas stickers and the traveling mats for the photos I used were K&Company. I used DCWV Flower stickers and tags with flowers from the same brand. I will try to tell you which papers I used as I go, but as we were at Pat Cataan's, they have products that are unlabeled. I apologize.

Creating from the Heart is celebrating her 3rd year on the net, and she is having some big prizes. Go and register here: http://keepsakesbymelissa.blogspot.com

First things first, I have to show you the neck warmer that I finished. It's my first ever knitting project, and it turned out beautiful! I used the boucle yarn, and it only took about a 1/2 a skein. I also used 2 buttons that I picked up on sale. Here it is below:

I used the Winter Wonderland (I believe) Christmas cart for the Cricut at Pat Cataan's for my titles and some of the icons.

The next couple of pages are from our trip to altoona last year. The paper is DCWV.

I had a lot of fun with the ladies and my mother scrappin at Pat Cataan's, but I was disappointed with the lack of new paper and new embellies. They had the same stale supplies that they have had for the last 3 years. However, on a good note, I was able to get 2 of Tim Holtz antiquing inks with my coupon. They also had Cricut carts on sale for $20 for 3 days, and if you used your coupon from scrappin, they only cost $8!!! I sadly did not have the money after going on a shoppin binge at the beginning of the month. I simply bought what I was running out of, and it very quickly added up to hundreds of dollars! I had sticker or receipt shock when I was done. Needless to say, I won't be buying much through to Decemeber, because I have to pay our house taxes. I am on a strict budget since I have been forced into early retirement. Sometimes I wish I could work part-time just to supplement my crafting habits. LOL! I hope you enjoy my layouts. I will definitely have much more on Saturday nite.

Happy Scrappin & Hookin,
