toooo many classes all at once...

...i've gone a little bit challenge and class crazy again for the New Year...and i'm suffering a little bit from the stress and excitement of it...but once my head clears i'll be sharing all sorts of different things and this should be a really fun year for me...and for you if you'd like to hang around too!

this first LO is from a page map sketch Katy challenged us to use in our team...the original sketch can be seen here ...as usual it didn't end up looking much like the sketch...but i did use it as the starting point...and for a change...i'm really pleased with the end result! ;0)



this secone LO is only an 8x8...but has taken me more than a week to complete...mainly because i was a bit scared of doing the writing...scared of what might come tumbling out...but in the end i managed to keep it fairly upbeat and positive ...which is how i generally try to be! it is inspired by the first prompt in scrapdolly's 52 in 10 project...see all the details here



i'm also signed up to do Elsie's style school...but more of that tomorrow!!

oh and in case its passed you by...its still snowing out there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;0)

I really like how the whole layout on 52 in 10 is predominately journalling and no photographs. It's really strong and inspiring.
