New Kit and My Class

A couple of new things I am really excited about! I am teaching a FREE class September 8-10 at A Million Memories - I think you are going to love this shabby vintage look frame!! Michelle has some kits for the class that will be available shortly or I will get you a list of supplies. I'll be posting the sign up soon and will get you the link.

And this kit - the September kit from A Million Memories, Office Space, I can't wait to get my hands on it - I've already been printing my pictures - get ready for some beach scenes. ;) LOVE the fun bright colors and I think it will be amazing for back to school or whatever you are scrapping right now! Check out the NEW Sassafras, Lily Bee, Cosmo Cricket and the Jenni Bowlin Bingo Book!

So, a few changes going on for me....I think you can tell that I have been a little stressed lately, my heart has been broken about my parents moving and my baby starting Pre-K, so many things, sometimes life takes more effort than other times. Not to be complaining...I know I am blessed in my life and am grateful for the challenges and changes that I have to grow through; it's just a few growing pains for me, right now.

That said - I don't know how many of you follow The Next Step - but we are changing things up a bit there to be a little less busy and I have stepped down from a couple of challenge blogs, Scrapping the Music and Creative Therapy. I am sad to be leaving but am thankful for the opportunity to be part of such wonderful sites.

And creatively - Just received my some new Webster's goodies!! Yay!! So I created this new layout in a non-traditional use of Winter's Wings - I adore these colors!!

Some misting here with Shimmerz in Eucalyptus over a Maya Road circles mask. So soft and pretty.

And I splattered some of the Shimmerz paint - love the glitter in this paint! This is Gold Glimmer.

And more Shimmerz - Spritzed on the flowers in Barn Red.

The upper insertion - tulle, old cheese cloth I dyed, threads from a piece of burlap.

I am so happy that Emma loves the sea as much as I do and it's song calls to her, too. This layout gives me such a wonderful feeling - it just makes me happy creatively - and that is a good place to be right now. Thanks for hanging with me today and making it through this long post. I so appreciate your comments and friendships - thanks and see you soon. :)
