I attached a ticket to the first page that provided free admission to crazyworld. I left room to admit some crazy photos and yes, they do exist. :)
The delightful and lovely Miss Billy Carter, an original gypsy, graces page four. (Thank you for the image Tricia!)
Next there is a page dedicated to the idea of a gypsy fortune teller. I wrote "What is your fortune in life? Love, Health, Happiness"
We had seven gypsies total in attendance. I wrote down each name.
The vintage hippo popcorn bag holds business cards of sweet shoppes and restaurants.
I had to have a peacock feather in the book as Mary's floral centerpiece featured these brilliant plumes.
Next up is a page inspired by Mindy, an attendee.
I plan on placing a photo of my flea market finds on the page entitled "Junk Gypsy". Don't worry, a post featuring my haul is coming up... along with a surprise.
The last page features a tag and more room for photos.
Here is the back cover of my album.
Our second project was this absolutely adorable tote bag featuring the Gypsy Boheme image. This is Miss Tricia's sweet bag.
My bag suffered an accessory malfunction that involved a can of Hawaiian punch during the long ride home. I really needed a new tote bag as I will be taking 3 classes this next semester and I find that keeping each class in a separate tote helps to keep me organized. So, I bought a new heavy duty pink tote (Wal Mart $2.46) and carefully cut out the image and sewed it onto the new bag. I also transferred all the yummy vintage trim that Tricia and Mary so lovingly provided.
While I was at it I added the image of Miss Billy onto the bag.
I placed a favorite image of a sweet Gypsy girl on the back of the tote.
Tricia is truly talented. She also created this cute candle and this beautiful necklace for me. Thank you so much!
My girl Mary had me select something from her shop to take home. I chose this piece of artwork as it reminded me of the Fashionista. It will go in her new apartment as it fits
the theme of a Forest Storybook Wonderland.
