More class stuff

I am actually keeping up with this online class which is hard to believe. Except I am now a day late since I haven't started on Sunday's prompt and I have Monday's one to work on too. I'll get to that later.
This weekend was a little different for me since I volunteered to work the store for my husband.

That's something I have never done since we got married. I have a hard time staying in one place too long. Which is why I'm a rep.
To keep myself busy between helping customers, I worked on 2 layouts so I could keep up with the class.
I really tried to keep these simple but I always end up putting more stuff on my pages to fill the empty spaces.

All the supplies used are from the Mod line. Buttons are Foofala, clear flowers MM, and of course all die cuts are Sizzix and ribbons are Mod.
I think the journaling might be a little hard to read but email me if you have questions.
This is a fun class to do and you meet a lot of ladies from all over the globe. I just hope I can keep up with the daily prompts.

I'll post more as I finish my layouts.
Have a great evening!

I'm on a roll...

So far I've been keeping up with my daily journal page. Here's the first layout for day 2.
I used Mod paper and ribbon and some red bling for the center of the flowers.
My daughter was leaving on a 2 week trip and I thought I wouldn't be able to handle her being gone from home. But I kept myself busy while she was gone.
And I'm also posting today's layout for day 3. The last time we went to
Chicago for CHA in July '05, it was so hot! So this time I didn't even think of checking the weather but packed clothes for hot summer days. And boy was I wrong! We ended up in a stormy week and the hottest day there was 73 degrees and the coldest was 62 degrees. I never got to wear my tank tops that I packed for the trip. On this layout I used Sizzix, Mod buttons and ribbon.
I'll post tomorrow's layout hopefully tomorrow.

It's that time again

I had an invitation to do Shimelle's online class again for the month of September. And since it was free for me (being an alumni), I decided, what the heck. I think I can handle 1 layout a day for a month. Although last year, I spent Saturday's playing catch up and making 7-8 layouts at a time. Talk about stress. So this time I told myself to "keep it simple". Here's what my cover page looks like. Hope you're all having a great Labor Day weekend. BTW, the layout is 6x6 which makes it easier to scrap. Stay tuned for today's layout.
