Baby Girl

Happy Friday all:  I've got that Spring cleaning bug.  You know the one where you go room to room and go through everything.  I'm always surprised at how much stuff there is to go through.  I'm cleaning, and organizing, and then I found pictures.  So the whole cleaning thing stops.... I found this picture of my youngest Colie and I knew I had to  make a page.  I just left everything  I was organizing where it was and started playing.  I probably won't get any more cleaning done today but I'll have another scrapbook page.  I love challenges I'm entering this in the Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2016, and Simon Says Monday challenge: Inspired by a song - Isn't she lovely by Stevie Wonder.  Hope you like it.

Scrapbook Expo

HeyAll:  Yesterday my friend Melody and I went to Scrapbook Expo.  This event is fun, educational and not to mention a one stop shop!!!  Unlike CHA this events had both Manufacturers and Vendors.  My main reason for going is the classes. You learn from industry professionals/owners of the companies.  I took 2 classes yesterday, one from Art Anthology and one from Pinecone Press.  I love to make mini albums the process is calming for me.  In my class yesterday from Pinecone press I learned different ways to make flaps, and layering.  This was good because I tend to never layer my base pages.  This company sells pre-made  kits where the with everything you need to create a album. (except the pictures)   My class from Art Anthology was awesome!! If you have a chance  to take classes from Art Anthology grab it!  I would take classes from Stayce a every week if I could.  We learned how to use some of her products.  There is dimensional paints with different textures (velvet, sorbet, metallic, stone effect and vibrant gemstone), coloration sprays, and fairy dust spray,  texture paste, etc...  I'm really hesitant to use mediums I know nothing about.  These were easy to use with stencils and on their own.   This class was fun, informative, messy, and hands on.  I bought a beginners kit to play with.
 and here's a picture of  my friend Melody Winston with Stacy Dewid of Art Anthology.
Thanks for looking.

Mini Album Mode

Hows it going?  Sorry it has been awhile since I've posted !  I'm in mini album mode.  Every once in awhile I'll fall in love with a paper line; this time the paper is junque gypsy by Marion Smith.  It just screamed mini album.  I'm looking online at tutorials, (my sisters scrapper and scrapbook maven)
 trying different ideas for flaps, etc...   Here's a few pictures.   Also tomorrow is Scrapbook Expo here in Texas.  I hope I get a ton of ideas. Thanks for looking
