All The Gear? Absoloutely No Idea...

Have you seen Julie Kirk's work? Her blog is here, she's a fellow Ordinary Treasures member and makes great use of unusual items in scrapbooking. Infact it was this project that she created that made me start looking at clothing labels in a whole different light.

Ok so that mini book looks absoloutely nothing like this LO, but it totally inspired me to start saving interesting clothing labels, which resulted in the creation of this!



Don't you just love those labels? The little label showing the different types of fit with the little men with measuring tapes was just perfect for this LO about some new clothes for me and who could fail to completely fall in love with that one of an open zip with the snowboard cartoon scene inside? They are both from a snowboard gear brand called Burton that make very cool clothes, and have very cool clothing labels to match!
The phrase "All the Gear, No Idea" was given by one of Mark's friends and I must admit it's just oh so true. I can't snowboard to save my life but will be giving it a go (again) when we go away.
Oh and the measure tape was something I found on the internet - a sight which offered a free printable tape measure to help you work out what size you were. Printed onto kraft cardstock I thought it looked pretty nifty!
