Now on to the multi-craft part. I had to scrap a page of them wearing their new aprons.
I used this week's Sketchy Thursdays sketch because it's a great sketch and Your Memories Here is this week's sponsor! I rotated the sketch but kept the proportions pretty much the same. The background paper is DCWV Nana's Kitchen (appropriate for an apron layout?) I cut out the apron on my Cricut using the From My Kitchen cartridge. The purple card stock and the apron are both embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder (though it's hard to see that detail in the photo). Thanks for stopping by to take a look today. I hope you'll head over to Sketchy Thursdays to play along and share your own take on this sketch.

In the summer we like to spend out weekends in the woods on our ATVs when we can. I got brave one trip and took my camera along.
I made the cuts on my Cricut using Plantin for the title font and Camp Out solutions for the 4 wheeler. I tried to give the 4 wheeler cut some interest by adding Stickles but I'm not loving it now :( I wrote my journaling on a Chatterbox wood tag and attached it with some glue dots. I felt with all the mud that the page was a little blah, so to give it some "bling" without being "girly" I added 3 sets of Dew Drops by each photo all from the Sunflower mix.
I embossed the title with my Cuttlebug Diamond Plate embossing folder though it's a little hard to see in the photo. There is a second page to this layout but it's going to have to wait for another day to get finished.

This is our cat, Arney. Yes, he is a boy. Our girls got some Build-a-Bear critters for Valentine's day from their Aunt Di and they came dressed in cute little Valentine's outfits. Marlee likes to undress all her toys so this one was laying on the floor and I thought *hmm, wonder if it will fit the cat?* He was not at all happy and I quickly removed it, but not before I snapped a couple of pictures :)

What you'll need:
- a length of 3/4" plastic electrical conduit (length depends on how many bottles you have)you can find it at any hardware/home improvement store in the electrical isle. *we just happened to have some left over from installing outlets. It's less than a $1 for a 10' piece.
- a 1"x3"x??feet of board or furring strip(furring strips are much cheaper than boards because they aren't pretty) The length depends again on how many bottles you have *again we had left overs, this time from my pegboard frame. Also available at home improvement store for about $1 for an 8' board.
- PVC pipe glue (found in the plumbing department of home improvement stores) I have no idea what this costs, my hubby just always has some around (he's very handy:))
- A few screws at least 2" long (I used 4 leftover drywall screws)
First cut your conduit into 1 1/2" pieces (how many depends on your number of bottles)
Then arrange them like this:
making it as long as you need. Then apply the glue where they touch and re-align them in that same pattern as above. Let it set for a few minutes for the glue to dry.
While you are waiting, cut your length of board slightly longer than your pipe assembly.Once the glue is dry, place the pipe assembly on top of your cut piece of wood and attach with a few screws (in the triangular shaped middles of where your pipes have connected, not inside the pipes them selves)
Does this make sense?
Just add your Stickles and Tah-Dah!
I made mine with a few extra spots for when I buy more Stickles, because you can never have enough ;)
It was really quick and easy to make, the part that took the longest was waiting on hubby to cut the conduit for me :) (which he used his power miter saw and took no time at all) It actually cost me nothing at all to make because we already had all the stuff just left over from other projects.
