that was a long few days!

So much for posting in a few days...I look at the date and it's been almost a month!! I cannot keep track of the time these days. Seems like I am always on the run and busy til I flop into bed for a quick 6 hours and right back to it the next day! Been trying to keep up with the new scrap class I am taking. It's called Dimensional Details and right up my alley.....lots of junking up and ink and stuff.....the big problem is that it take a while to do all that stuff. I am liking the way most of the LOs are coming out and will post a few here and there when I can. This LO is the first one I did....LOVE, LOVE this BG Kioshi - purples, greens and lavenders...right up my alley!!

2 months??

Where does the time go? I promise I will update this over the weekend! Been so very busy with work and the Design Your Life class that I have had zero time ---and of course, the weather here has been insane too - like Mother Nature going thru menopause. Have a new laptop with ni photos or oything else on it, so I need to get to the PC...
Have a great Thursday!!

Design Your Life

I love to scrapbook, but I really never "learned" how to do it according to principles of design, so I enrolled in an online class with Cathy Z from Big Picture Scrapbooking. So far, so good - I have created a bunch of layouts using her sketches and am amazed at how many photos I am getting on a page. What this has got me doing is looking at photos in a different way - seeing how pieces of a photo tell the story I want to convey without taking up the whole page. I am struggling a bit with the 8.5 x 11 LOs but they do work.
I love doing the 2 page 12 x 12s and the clean simple designs are perfect for getting a bunch of photos on the page. Still having some trouble with the lack of embellishments. These two layouts are from the first two weeks of the class. Whattaya think?
