Busy Bee!

Wow it's Wednesday over at Cat's and it's time to share!!  It's almost National Scrapbook Day and this year I get to attend a retreat hosted by Cat & Mitchell's RV Resort.   I can not wait!!  I haven't been to a retreat for ages so I'm very excited.  And very BUSY preparing.  We've been counting down on Cat's blog, and following her adventures with Anne (and the GOD Tim Holtz and demi-GOD Mario Rossi)  She got to play with LOADS of cool Ranger Inc and Tim Holtz Products.... How cool?  I'm sooooooo jealous.

So, I took that and decided I needed my own Holtz-ified Apron.  I was being very picky about my apron choice, as there are loads of "ready to decorate" aprons out there.   I found one that was perfect.  It's made for the larger 'bosomed" women out there.. which had my gf Stephanie and laughing in the aisle because we're geekie and quoting "Miss Kay" from Duck Dynasty.

I took a canvas tag made by Canvas Corp, pulled out some rubber stamps including my "Way with Words" set by TH & Stampers Anonymous, grabbed some distress stains, Archival Inks (black and sepia) and my water pen.  This was so much fun and so therapeutic.  My fingers and desktop was covered in inks but happiness is messiness!
I've pin this tag to my apron.   I also stamped directly onto my apron with some Citrus Andirondack Paint.  The nice thing is, this isn't done!  I can keep adding and altering it!!  Well, time to get back to my "to do" list.  I have layouts to finish before next week, packing and getting the house all in order for David and the girls.  (They get a "snow day" next week!)

 Today is Wow! Wednesday over on Cat's Creations Scrapbooks blog where you can share something you've created with products from Cat's store.  Wow!
