Projects from the KEYS retreat!!!!!

I was so excited that I finished my printer's tray as soon as I got home from Florida. I had filled a baggie with all kinds of goodies and doodads people brought to share! This one was so much fun to put together!
This is a little page that Beatriz Guzman taught us how to make in her class at the Paper Niche. She said to make one doll and I got a little obsessed and made three! Luckily my pal, Jacquie, did my background for me while I was cutting and pasting the little outfits!
Here are a few pages from the Over The Edge journal class that Ingrid Dijkers taught.
It's really cool how you can see the edges of all the pages peeking out!
Here's a little frozen charlotte merbaby that Ingrid made and gave us for our books.
Here you can see the edges stacked up and making you want to turn the pages...
I liked the wired button edge technique because the wire didn't have to be neat and perfect!
Ingrid brought tons of templates for us to trace and use for page shapes.
Of course do you think I ( the A.D.D. queen) slowed down to actually TRACE any templates for use in the future? I'm glad so many of my friends took great detailed photos that I can rely on.
Some of the edges had fold outs that add another interactive element to the books!
