Birthday Wishes

Hello, everyone! I hope everyone had a great weekend, I know I did. I went to my first hockey game with the hubby and friends. I absolutely loved it! I can never really seem to get into sports by watching them on the TV, but when I get to go watch them live, I always have such fun.

On Friday evening, I am going to post my first tutorial. I will be making the baby brag book. This is one of the classes that I taught at extravaganza, and a lot of people had a hard time putting the book together by me just explaining it, so I decided I will show you. I know that I pick up things much better as I watch and do, rather than listening.

OK, here is another layout I made with one of the kits I received at extravaganza. This one is from Fancy Pants featuring their It's Your Day collection. I had brought pictures and different paper to scrap my youngest daughter's 9th birthday, but I ended up really liking this kit, so I used it instead. Everything I used is from Fancy Pants except for the Stickles on the star and the 9, which is from American Crafts. I really like it when they encourage you to use embellishments that you end up cutting out yourself from the paper. It makes me think of things a little bit differently than just throwing on a bunch of miscellaneous stuff. Also, I am not real good at following the rules when they give me kits, so for the most part I did my own thing, sometimes taking things that they suggested and using them in my own way.
