Doing A Happy Dance!Hello, Hello I am doing a happy dance as the long awaited, much anticipated ATDML Autumn Retreat weekend is here. Doing an even wilder happy dance than usual as at the beginning of the week I thought I wouldn't be able to go but it turns out that a few days can settle things down and begin to get things back to normal.
I taught the first class which was three layouts using Simple Stories - We Are Family. If you follow the link to the shop site you will see that this range has many more gorgeous items than I have used on my pages. I feel a little spend coming on!
The aim of this class was to get the most out of 'Project Life' style cut-a-part papers and to demonstrate, with the second page, how a 'Project Life' style page can be achieved without actually using divided page protectors.
The first two are designed to go side by side in a album and I have used the same format as I use in my 'Month in Five' album (an idea inspired by Jo's idea to scrap 5 photos from each month) - 1 large photo on the left and 4 smaller ones on the right. Look at that gorgeous wood-grain cardstock!
The third page uses up most of the remains of the kit (Jill & Mel are so generous with their kit content - such good value for money, three layouts from one class) for a page that celebrates almost 30 years of marriage.
Hope your day is as fantastic as I know mine will be - fabulous company, cutting and sticking, learning new stuff and a plentiful supply of cupcakes - what more could you ask for?
Reasons to be cheerful:
1. David is much better than we had anticipated at the beginning of the week and even talking about going out for a little drive today.
2. A day of anticipated happiness and creativity.
3. Almost 30 years of marriage and over 32 years of living with my man.
