Obsessing about Disney World

I have mostly been working on prayer shawls since the weather got cooler.  I will try  to remember to take a photo of them.  But mostly I am obsessing about our upcoming trip to Disney World.  I am reading Mousejunkies and the Unofficial Guide in tandem, and intend to find my copy of Hidden Secrets of Disney World soon.

Mark and Joshua are mostly interested in seeing Aaron again, and are not so much into the Disney World part.  I have warned them that I intend to eat my way around the World Showcase - we are going during the International Food and Drink Festival.  And  I think planning our visit is part of the fun!  It will also be great to see Aaron again - we haven't seen him since February and Ace hasn't seen him since two years ago  now.

My first designer challenge

Well, I have just created my first design challenge and I am quite humbled.  It made me appreciate all the talent out there in digiland.  And the preview - how do they do it?  I did not include all my elements or papers and mine still looks so crowded.  I enjoyed the challenge and I loved making all the different papers.  I have no idea of how to arrange to have anyone download it, but here is the preview anyway:

Some of the elements are resized (the brads are much smaller and the lavender ribbon much larger) but it is done,  And "done is better than perfect!"

If you want to see some of the beautiful kits that were done for the challenge, the forum is here at Pixelscrapper.

Latest crafting

Finished a prayer shawl yesterday - ready to take to Women's Bible Study on Thursday.  Taking a small break before beginning the next one, although I have gotten the yarn ready to go.

On another creative front, my new stencils have arrived!  I am eager to get into my art journal and start playing with them - perhaps I will have time to get messy tomorrow.
