Renee and I drove up to Goffstown, New Hampshire yesterday (it's after midnight as I start this post so it still feels like Sunday, but really it's already Monday ... so technically it was yesterday) to the B and E Scrapbooking store to take a class taught by Elsie Flannigan. Elsie is one of the biggest scrapbooking celebrities right now and her style is very funky and full of spunk.
We had a fun time working on the project - an 8"x8" album titled "10 Ways You Rock". Renee did hers about (and for) her Mom with some adorable photos from her childhood. Since I have a gazillion albums and layouts about my boyfriend, I did mine about my nephews instead (not that I don't already have gazillion layouts about them too, but ...). We used a couple pieces of chipboard, Scenic Route paper and stickers, ribbon, puffy paint, buttons, and our own handwriting. This is what my cover ended up looking like:
I really like how the cover turned out actually, I have to admit that. You can see the rest of the album in my ScrapSupply gallery. Elsie will be posting her sample album for the class on the 2Peas website in her gallery sometime soon, too. The class was very fun and she is so cute in real life! Got a couple of photos with her, too, plus one of her signing my copy of her new book, "52 Challenges"
Renee, Elsie, and me (kinda blurry)
I think I made her feel tall!
Can't imagine how many times she has signed her name by now!
The store bought her a cake - and she does rock!
My work space - can you tell what my favorite color is?!
Very fun time had by all and such a delight meeting Elsie in person!! :)
Now it's time for some zzzzzz's!
