Tote bag and scrapping again.

Having seen on Mel's blog a lovely tote bag made out of a tea towel, I went rummaging in my material drawers to see what I could find to copy the idea. A lovely piece of curtaining material would just fit the bill. so cutting off the border edges to use as straps I got out my sewing machine that hasn't seen the light of day for quite a while and made myself a tote bag big enough to take a 12x12 box plus my cutting mat and cutter. I added a pocket on the inside which will take the smaller bits and bobs, now hopefully I will be able to travel light when I go to crops, just hope I don't forget anything important. It will make life a lot easier as long as I organise myself properly.

I haven't scrapped for a few days now and was beginning to feel as if my mojo had disappeared completely, but today, I was not so tired and low and behold I have been fiddling with ideas on and off all day. Only managed to do one layout though but quite pleased with the result. It is another one of the Pencil Line Challenge sketches

Love the layout but I can't see the bag :-( It sounds great though, and it's lovely to know that something I made inspired you - even if the original idea wasn't mine!!

Now I can see the bag - not sure what the problem was before! It looks fab xx

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
