i have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off as of late,,, trying to reach each of the deadlines that have been given to me ~ or that i have given myself,,, yesterday i locked myself in my house and almost completed my class sample for the 14 layout class coming up at pink. it sold out right away ~ then we added a few more spots,,, havent checked in the last few days if those spots have been filled, but the news made me happy non the less,,, i really wanna come up with an awesome name for the class ~ sounds pretty boring at *14 layouts*,,, blahhh,,, lemme know if you have any rad ideas,,, and im sorry to those whose blogs i have ignored as of late, internet time has been very limited!! anyway, today {and tomorrow too} im gonna share a peak at the class coming up,,, you can call the store to sign up 760*598*2222. the class will consist of {like i said} 14 layouts. of those 14 layouts ~ there will be 2 ~ 12X12 layouts, 4 ~ 8 1/2X11 layouts, 4 ~ 6X12 layouts and 2 {front and back} ~ atc sheets,,, we will be using a ton of different mixed media techniques as playing with paint, ink, glimmer mist, really anything you wanna add,,,
included in your kit
*one sheet making memories tiny letters
*one package of thickers
*all the papers needed pre cut, and the scrap will be included {because we gonna use them}
*two atc holders for you album
*ribbons galore
*and i will provide the ink, paint, glimmer mist, tape and techniques
*you will have the option to purchase page protectors for an additional fee. :-D
and here is one of the 6X12 layouts,,, ive gotta admit, i hadnt ever busted out a 6X12 before this class sample, and mama likey :-D
see you tomorrow with another sneaky peaky

i created my layout for the june glorias pink challenge and turned it in before taking some pictures to share,,, shame, shame, shame,,, the theme was to scrap a song that inspires you,,, my song?? by missy brit~brit *circus*,,, *all eyes on me in the center of the ring, just like a circus*,,, i used a picture from the circus we hit up a few months back,,, if you look close {this in really, really immature of me, but crazy, funny non the less},,, the dude walking the elephant has his finger sooooo far up his nose, just digging and diggin for gold ~ and i caught him on camera!!! i so badly wanted to add some bling circles around his picture to add to the funny~ness {homemade patented new word},, but i opted not to. you know, to look all sophisticated and what not,,, anyway, this baby ended up being the challenge winner!! yipeeee,,, its probably thanks to the finger, upper, the noser, dude {thanks dude},,,

this just in,,, me and this pretty lady are gonna have a date with miss brit~brit herself 24th september,,, its gonna be sooooo much fun!!!

ode to american crafts,,, as most of you know american crafts is one of my favs when it comes to over all scrapping, i use only their albums, mostly only their thickers and adore each and every one of their paper lines,,, recently they put out a design team call that i have been pondering over,,, i still havent decided if i wanna go for it {of course for fear of rejection},,, but non the less i thought i would share my top american crafts projects i have played with,,, and then think if i wanna try out or not,,, {im shy},,,
this mini was a class i taught last year. it was a fun project to put together and a great way to document a normal day in the life of my monkeys. i took pictures of everything we did that day, wrote down the times with the events and put it all together in a mini album. *document today*,,, i used the everyday line from american crafts,,,
i just taught a card class at my fav store in the whole, whole wide world and here are my two favorite cards from the class. i used the new american crafts teen linehere are a couple of fun layouts i used american crafts paper lines in. they were mostly for various challenges,,,
and then finally, these last two are pretty simple, mainly because i have an on-going project for my baby brother. i wanted to keep it fairly simple because he doesnt know any better {sorry, but its true},,, and because i have one million pictures of him so in order to keep things a rollin, i had to go kinda, sorta simple,,, so here is the first page,,, and another page from the album,,,
so there it is,,, whatcha think?? should i try,,, or not,,, should i try,,, or not,,, should i try,,,
