I went to Edmonton for the weekend.  and while I was there I took at class at Treasured memories with Lisa of You Know How I Roll.  I had SUCH a good time!  There were two other ladies in the class and it was so much fun to see how each of our projects turned out so differently.
Here is the first book:
I love her colours!

Then our second beauty:
This is so elegant.

I think it's really romantic.
In case you're wondering why I'm not giving credit where credit is due, it's cus I didn't get the ladies' permission to say their names on my blog.  I guess all you'll have to just admire their work and see how talented they are!

Here's our fearless leader Lisa.  I think she thinks I'm a groupie and I guess I am cus I think she's very artistic.  It was thanks to one of her tutorials that I actually did a self-portrait, something I swore I would NEVER do.  See, she makes the impossible possible. And that's a BIG deal, for me, who thinks I can never do anything.

Can you tell how much fun we're having?
Here's mine:

We learned how to layer and give depth to a surface, the surface being a children's board book.  I learned lots of different things, and had a blast using all sorts of goodies from Lisa's extensive stash of treasures.  I mean TREASURES! 

Here are some closer looks at some of my pages, first because it's my blog (tee hee) and second, because I'm relly pleased with how it turned out.  I wanted to come home and make another one right away, but gave my head a shake when I heard myself plotting how to get a board book from the little girl next door without her knowing, as it was Sunday and all the stores were closed.  (I should probably get some therapy.)
The photograph of the first one is a little dark.
Mr. Right.

And finally,.

That's it.  I loved the class and I love my book.
Thanks Lisa!

  2. I can tell this was a fabulous class, it shows from all the wonderful projects you're presenting here - these are gorgeous. There's something so inspiring about the elegant colors and images that makes me want to ditch work (I wish I wish) and play some more in my craft room.

  7. What a wonderful time. I love your book. And you made it green. My most favorite color in the whole world. I love all the layers. Mr Right is great. You could trade some cookies for a little board book. Seems fair to me. :-}
