On the Friday night we got given our challenge packs... and I found it quite challenging... Yellow really isn't my colour!!! As well as the yellow cardstock we had two double sided 12 x 12's, some green felt, glue strips, ribbon and sequins... and here's what I came up with:
I added some buttons, used the cuttlebug to get my letters and a few pearls.
On Saturday morning we had our first class with Kelly Rotherham and let me just say that she is a truly LOVELY person plus she is an awesome teacher. I highly recommend her classes (and some of them are available online as well!!)
The first class was called 1, 2, 3 Scrap... no pressure!!! We created 3 layouts in 2 hours - see what I mean about no pressure LOL The class was so much fun and apart from the journaling and titles I actually did complete all 3 of my layouts during the time frame. On Saturday night I got them all finished and here they are:
Yes those are the same photos as the first layout but I just LOVE them!!!Mr 5 playing at 'Auntie's Park'Miss 2 playing at 'Auntie's park'
After lunch we had our second class and it was much more relaxing... and much more indepth. I kind of went off on my own theme and I loved the freedom we had to really get gutsy with our journaling... so here's what I created:
By Sunday I was feeling a bit tired but I did get another layout done... you'll have to wait to see that one cause I'm going to have a go at getting published - I'll never know if I don't give it a go I suppose LOL
So it's been a full on weekend and now it's back to the realities of working again! Hope you all have a great week :)
