I posted pictures of the beanie I knitted a little while back. I also scrapped about it:


I created this page for a "white space" challenge at Little Dreamer. Either they never did the challenge or I'm not seeing it on the blog (or both). I'm not even sure if I understand what a white space is when it comes to scrapbooking, but this is what I created. Ha!

When I knitted the beanie (which I considered a hat then) I had intentions of giving it to my mom for her birthday in February. When it was completed and I tried it on (without even looking in the mirror nonetheless) I busted out with a laugh because it was so small. I brought it with me to Michigan and several kids, friends, family tried it on. It was up for grabs for any one of them, but no one kept it. I showed it to my mom, she tried it on, and lo and behold, she liked it and said she wanted it. Hilarious!

Quent took pictures of me wearing the sweater I knitted. I'll post that soon!

Ice Cream Fun

A page dedicated to one of my favorite foods! My maiden name is Keller, which I think should mean: Lover of ice cream!

I love the bright colors on this page! I wanted something fun and colorful for these pictures.

Red Rock Canyon

Happy Wednesday! Today I was in a scrapping mood, so I scrapped a few pages. And I did cave in and scrap a few of the pics I took when I was in Michigan...oops! I just couldn't help myself! But I am sticking to the plan of scrapping our trip photos. I am thinking I should upload the pages I have completed to Shutterfly to make sure the double-spread pages fit in the right order with the single pages. Otherwise I'll have to sneak in a few more single pages. I've really enjoyed scrapping these trip photos because of the simplicity. I have a feeling I will be more "complex" and "crazy" with the pics I took when I was in MI. It's fun to be creative like that. I do have a lot of pages scrapped of our trip from last year, but I can't really share them yet...

Here's what I scrapped today:

Hello Waterton

After being home for almost 2 days, I thought I would take a stab at scrapbooking since I was in the mood. Last night Quent ran me through the details on how to edit my photos using camera raw. I got the first "batch" done, but now I need more of his help. It really is cool editing photos using camera raw. The pictures just have this awesome crispness and vibrance to them this way. I am excited! I really want to start scrapbooking the photos from Michigan, but I'm making myself complete another project first...our 2009 Montana vacation album! I will probably cheat and scrap some of the MI photos anyway. Hee, hee!

I enjoyed scrapping this page today. Being the introvert that I am, I needed some time just to myself today. After visiting in MI, I find myself needing to recharge. So I edited photos, scrapped, and looked through the current Creating Keepsakes magazine.

Happy Tuesday!

Hello! I'm back from my trip to Michigan. I had a wonderful time visiting family and friends. It was really hard to say goodbye. I hope to visit again before another year goes by. I took almost 1,000 pictures!! Digital scrappin' here I come!! I have a lot of photo editing in my future since most of the pictures were taken in camera raw. And maybe I will personally post something about photo editing when it's all said and done (instead of Quent). Quent took a trip himself while I was away and he took some awesome photos! I'm so amazed at his talent!
Before I left for my trip I searched at ravelry.com to find a headband pattern for my sister Amanda and I to knit while I was visiting MI. I wanted to teach her some new techniques. I found this pattern for a basketweave headband. We made the handbands together and they turned out super cute. It was really simple and didn't take us very long. We had fun knitting together and one day we walked down to the yarn shop and drooled over the yarn. While I was there I started a new project of knitting felted slippers. Amanda started knitting a shawl.

Here is my sister Katie modeling the headband I knitted:

Isn't she so cute?

I hope you are having a great April!
