You might recall last year I signed up to take part in Shimelle's Learn Something New Everyday Class. One the great things about Shimelle's classes is that once you've paid to take part the first time then you get to participate every year without any further charges. You get all the new prompts, access to the forums etc. Great value I think. You can check out my pages from last year here.
I admit I wasn't really going to take part this year (but only because I didn't really get quite to the end last time so felt a bit bad) but the lovely Louise is taking part this time round and I couldn't resist the urge to join my scrapping buddy on this little September adventure. She starts a new job tomorrow too - GOOD LUCK LOU! So if you should feel like it why not pop over and wish her luck.
So, Friday night and a little online cropping with Miss Lou and my album cover was done, cardstock pages cut and punched and album assemble (although I will dismantle it while I scrap the pages). Here's the finished article:
It's turned out a little more muted in colours than it was in my head originally, but the absolute best thing about it (in my mind anyway) is that I've manged to make the album and assemble a kit for the class entirely using stash that I already have! Hurrah! Go me, being all scrapping frugal. Making a dent in the massive stash isn't a bad thing either.
I've just been looking back to the post I linked about where I talked about starting the LSNED class this time last year. Here's a little of what I had to say (if you didn't clickity click it):
Can anyone else feel it? The change of seasons just hovering there on the brink? I love Autumn, so I can't wait and I definitely had that Autumney feel setting off to work this morning. There's a definite "back to school" vibe in the air. I can't wait until the nights start to draw in. Autumn is the best season ever!
You know what's weird? I felt exactly the same as this this morning. Clearly the 1st September brings out the Autumn lover in me.
Right, must dash, I have brownies in the oven. Channelling Martha again, clearly.
Oh - and I've actually finished my projects for the Seaside swap. Expect to see them soon when my swap buddy has taken delivery :)
