Happy Christmas

As we are soon to set off to church, I thought I would wish everyone a Happy Christmas and a healthy New Year now.

Another class

You know I'm a sucker for online classes, some I embrace completely and finish them - Shimelle's - Go to Press is a good example where I did all but one layout. On the other hand Cheryl's photography class I didn't do a thing other than read the first two handouts. However I have all the handouts to refer back to.

So what have I signed up for now? Starting 1 January I am doing Cathy Zielske's class at Big Picture Scrapbooking. Tracey just spotted my pre-class layout whilst she was here collecting some gooides, so I thought I should share it with you.

All of the pages are on kraft cardstock so I may or may not need to buy some before the class is over. Each class has three layouts per week, on your choice of subject but one of the layouts each week is using pre determined colours otherwise you can choose your own subject and colour for each layout. The whole course is looking at design principles, including one week on the scarey subject of white space. There's more about the class at

December crop

Catching up today. A busy day with a little service for Beaulieu feast day for Beaulieu alumni and friends. No idea where Kathryn was as she was meant to be there. Then girls have a half day so E's friend came with us to do a quick Co-op shop. Quick trip to see Val en route to the consultant as E has some toys she wants to sell. After consultant some time to put our feet up before M comes home and it's time to head to music. Last thing for the day is a committee meeting which is a shame as I had an invite to a charity do at Royal Yacht in which E's best freind is performing.

Only a week until the deadline for the Scrapagogo challenge and I know they have 10 entires so far - two posted here belonging to Maureen and Jenny, five in my previous post and Chloe, Margaret and Liz have also done their pages. Very good odds of winning a fabulous prize.

I also finished 3 of my pages from the Scrapagogo event. The last one I'll keep for New Year's day to quiz my father and aunt about who is who in the heritage photo.
