Book in a Box

This morning I was going through some of my projects from "Way Back" (2 or 3 years ago) and found this Book in a Box I did for Tammy. The papers were by My Minds Eye and the project features Tammy's niece, Rachel. She loves purple! Enjoy!

Winter Wonderland

This layout is loosely based on a design assignment I did for Bazzill awhile back. I just love the photos, the card stock, and the SEI striped paper. I don't get to share work like this with you very often. This is a re-designed, re-created layout for Stacie. Stacie is so generous to let me feature her amazing photos in my professional works.

Thank you!

Thanks to everyone who signed up for my Master Mini Books Class this past week! Both classes sold out and I didn't have a kit to spare. Sadly, my count was off and I had one more student than I had kits. A very special thank you to my sweet and funny co-worker Sandy T. (who is still my friend after I snatched her kit from her).
Next month my Master Mini Books project is "The GRINCH's Christmas Schedule." Please, if you know that you want to take this class (or purchase the kit), do not wait until the last minute! I showed the unfinished project in class and will post a photo, update my website and have the sample on display at Scrapbooks, Etc. this week. This class is $29 and will be held Thursday, 10/1 from 6 to 8:30PM and Friday 10/2 from 10:30 to 1. You can take 15% of one class per month at Scrapbooks, Etc. Call Scrapbooks, Etc. to sign up at 480-854-2303.

Got Zebra?

I had such a great time working at Creative Escape this year. Zebra was everywhere! I saw zebra flowers, zebra tops, zebra tights and even zebra cowboy hats! I met Bubbles the Zebra (above photo) who attended the event and even made an appearance at Scrapbooks, Etc. during the Bazzill Bus Tour! I had the pleasure of working with Sharon as TA's in Carol Wingert's class (pictured above). A good time was had by all!
