NEW LAYOUT: Epcot, December 2008

Hi, everyone!

I went to a crop last weekend without any photos OR a paper trimmer. I don't know what I was thinking there! Even so, I was able to get this layout started. The only thing I added after I got home was the photo, the title, the journaling and the wood veneers. Not bad, all things considered!

This 12"x12" layout highlights a photo taken of me at Epcot one Christmas. It was the first "winter" we lived in Miami, and some friends of ours were down on vacation. We met up with them and had a blast!

Here are some pictures of the finished layout:

The paper is from the Basic Grey "Fact" paper pad in the "Fact & Fiction" collection, exclusive to JoAnn stores (and the Basic Grey website). The wood veneers are from Studio Calico, and the glitter letters are from Pink Paislee.

Thanks for checking out the layout & I hope you all have a great weekend!

NEW VIDEO: Rabies, 12"x12" Layout

Hi, everyone!

Another layout for my sister's travel album! I made another little inroad into this paper pad, but I am starting to despair of ever finishing it. Paper pads are evil, I tell you, evil!

This 12"x12" layout is about my sister's decision to NOT get the rabies vaccine recommended by the State Department for people travelling to Southeast Asia. The rabies vaccine was both expensive and painful, so she decided to skip it. But then that meant she had to run and hide from every animal she encountered overseas, including the monkey in these photos from Cambodia.

Below are some pictures of the finished layout. Sorry about th glare, but once thisa type of layout is in a protector, it needs to stay there!


I filmed this layout coming together for my YouTube channel. You can watch the video below, or click this link to watch it over on YouTube: Rabies, 12"x12" Layout.

This video is a little bit different. Normally I make a lot of cuts in my videos in order to keep them under 15 minutes and show them in real time. This video I made fewer cuts, but I spend it up quite a bit. Let me know which way you prefer!

I hope to see you all tomorrow on USTREAM for more fun with the Bushel Box album! The bushel box album is an 8"x8" album done in a fall theme with the Bo Bunny "Apple Cider" collection. The classes will be offered online tomorrow from 2:00 - 4:00 PM and again from 9:00 - 11:00 PM Eastern USA time on my USTREAM channel.
