The Weekend is Here!!!

It's Saturday morning and I am busy preparing for my first-ever scrapbooking workshop!! I have taught many, many card workshops and stamp camps but never a completely scrappin' class. I was asked to teach this class for a Women's Day for the YWCA here in my hometown and of course I quickly agreed! The challenge for me was that the class could only be an hour and a half long as there are several sessions during the day.

So I had to do a big of thinking (yes, it was painful)! I had to come up with a project that even beginners could complete in that time frame. I didn't want to do just a two-page layout which could easily be done in 90 minutes because then these people would be going home with two pages and nothing to put them in as I am expecting most of these people to be newbies! SO, I decided on the paperbag scrapbook!!

I spent my day off this week cuttin' and cuttin' and packaging everything in baggies ready for the ladies. I also did up little baggies which include all the embellishments like big star brads, small brads, prepunched squares and circles, ribbon, fibre, tags, buttons and a charm. Whew! It was a lot of work but hopefully that way they will be able to complete the book in the time frame!

Here are a few pics of my prototype! I hope they like it!! I'll letcha know how it goes!!

ALSO, I wanted to mention how excited I was to be asked by Cindy Lou Who to be her first-ever Featured Scrapbook Artist!! I was really flattered and totally stoked when she approached me!! So I did up a little writeup about myself (that was kinda hard) and I created a special 12x12 scrapbook page especially for her which she revealed a couple of days ago!! Please go and check it out!!!
