Shawnee Kansas Crop - I'm back!

Back from the crop in Shawnee and I had a great time getting to know the wonderful ladies that were there AND I was able to get a lot done.  I can't post all my projects here - not yet anyway, but will post a couple of the layouts I finished!

Here we are at The Scrapbook Page and it was an amazing store!  I would love to go back there sometime!  

I finally finished one of my winter 2011 layouts.  I had a lot of fun combining 2 sheets of paper to make this one geometric sheet.   I used Winter Frolic for the snow angel, Carousel for the banner and I can't recall the font I used at this point.

Finished up the Play-Doh layout.  These were all during the 2011 blizzard.  We were stuck in the house being creative so we made our own purple glitter playdoh with a flour recipe.  I used Hoot N Holler, Zoo Day, Cupcake, and my new Cuttlebug emboss/cut in one letter folder for the HOMEMADE part of it.  

Homemade Glitter Play-Dough

1 cup salt
2 cups flour
2 tablespoons cream of tartar (I bought mine from a bulk bin at the organic store, but you can buy it at most grocery stores)
2 cups water
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
food coloring
In a medium saucepan, off the heat, combine the salt, flour, and cream of tartar.  Stir in water and vegetable oil.
Heat and stir over low heat until the mixture becomes a cohesive mass, like gluey mashed potatoes.  Let cool for a few minutes, then turn out onto a counter and knead until smooth.
Knead in food coloring and glitter as desired.  Store in an airtight container or plastic bag.
