Scrapbook pages

I've completed several scrapbook pages over the last several weeks. The first one is of Tinker & Blossom while we were camping back in July. The 2nd one is Brad making Smores while we were camping. The 3rd layout is of Tinker in her favorite dog house and the last layout I made for a picture that will be taken of Tinker & Blossom in their Halloween costumes.

Tomahawk 2010

We decided not to spend several days at Tomahawk this year, but to ride over on Saturday. I'm glad we decided to do this, because unlike last year, which was unseasonably warm, it was cold and rainy for several days. It turned out to be a nice ride on Saturday with Bill & Vicky, Randy & Denise and Ponch & Cheryl. We rode into Tomahawk and stopped at Sara park to check out the vendors. We also rode over to Bubba's campground to check out the vendors and visit friends that were camping. It was a cold ride in the morning and evening, but the day was nice.

Von Stiehl Winnery

Brad and I stopped at the Von Stiehl Winery in Algoma, in early August. This is a winery that my family visited often when we would go to Door County. Not much has changed but its always fun to do the tour and taste the wines.

Chipmunk Rapids

As a kid, my family camped many times at a campground in northern Wisconsin, near Tipler, called Chipmunk Rapids. On a bike ride in early June, Brad and I were riding when we came across the campground and stopped to check it out. It was pretty much the same as it was when I was a kid. My family soon decided we needed to make a camping trip there. We camped over the 4th of July weekend and it was super hot, in the 90's the whole weekend. It was hot, but fun, until it rained on us.

Memorial Vet Ride

Each year Brad and I, and his family, participate in a ride for Veterans in Iron Mountain, MI, and this year was no different. The ride started in Iron Mountain with a stop in Crandon, Hiles, and ended in Spread Eagle. It was very hot, about 95degrees. The ride was about 140 miles long.

Harley scrapbook

I've been working hard on updating the Harley scrapbook I started years ago. Over the last several months, I have done many layouts and I'm caught up. I wanted to share a couple of my favorite layouts. The first layout is of Brad, his father, and brother when they all bought new bikes in 07. The 2nd layout is from the Harley 105the in Milwaukee, when we met Captain Phil Harris from the Cornelia Marie (Deadliest Catch) and Russ from the Time Bandit. The 3rd layout is Brad and I on a demo bike at the Harley Museum and the last layout is of my street bob.

More tags...

This tag was made for a coffee gift. I use the 'Espress yourself' stamp set. I took a tan tag and stamped it with the coffee beans in chocolate chip and then lightly inked the tag in the same color to make it match. The mug is stamped on very vanilla and colored with close to cocoa, riding hood red, and old olive.

This is what the finished gift looked like, with 3 samples of coffee, which I found at Target in the dollar bins!!!

Christmas tags

I made several gift packages this year...
This is a tag I made for a beer pilsener gift. I used a tan tag, which I stamped 'seeing spots' in chocolate chip in, then sponged the tag with more mustard and summer fun. The beer mugs came from 'cheers to you' and were colored with summer sun ink. I used 3d fabric scribble paint for the froth on top.
This is the finish product, 3 pilseners and peanuts and beef sticks. I used a plastic basket bag and heat shrunk it! It turned out very nice!

Can't forget the dogs
