Why I scrapbook!

Love this! They asked to get their baby books down so they could look at them. They spent a long time looking through everyones.

This was for our Jessica Sprague challenge this week...using white space and a selected color palette. Thankfully Holly had chosen her own ensemble this day for our bike ride and it worked perfect for this challenge. Thanks, Holly!

I had a scrapbooking overnighter this past weekend and I was highly unmotivated to paper scrap! I simply had to finish 1/2 of 2002 and I was rather crabby and felt rather uncreative about the whole thing. It felt good to get away for 27+ hours and hang out with a bunch of scrappin' buddies and just have a change of pace but I was so happy to get home and work on my laptop again!

Schools in Session

So we're going to make this PSE class a go! I'm very excited and hope I can share what I know with some of you. And Lis, unfortunately I am not in Maryland and I don't think my class is worth the commute for you but I'm still working on how we can work something out for those of you outside of the Pacific Northwest.
I'm tentatively planning on starting on Monday, March 24 (my other option is Thursdays) from around 7:15 - 8:15. I'm still working out the price but it will be reasonable. It's okay if you don't have a laptop because I'll be showing you things in class and sending you home with a handout and "homework". What you'll need to complete the homework, however, is digital photos (either from a camera, CD or scanned in), a computer and Photoshop Elements. If you don't have Elements and want to know if this is something for you can download a free 30 day trial,
If you're interested, have questions or want to confirm that you do want to take the class just send me an e-mail at
And here's a "school" layout just to get you in the mood to go back to school!

Every week there is a new challenge over at "the Spragueground" and I always seem more motivated to get things done when it's a challenge. This weeks challenge was to make a layout using a Photoshop Friday lesson from here and using this type masking technique. So cool and very fun to mess around with.
I first worked with my main photo and then went on to work on the layout. All the elements I used were from a kit that Liv created for Little Dreamer Designs Apprentice Challenge. If you go to their website (Little Dreamer), then click on freebies you should find it in the Apprentice Challenge Freebies.
