Story of My Life

I'm a little behind again.  I feel like I say that a lot lately, but it is what it is, I guess. I'm going to spread the "catch-up" over the week, so I don't have a huge post all at once.  (There's 9 layouts all together, if I'm counting right...I hope I'm counting right!)

I've been working hard to catch up on the lessons from Digi in Deeper at JessicaSprague.com.  I am in love with all the new techniques I'm learning, though I am glad there are sketches to follow, as some of the styles we're using are way outside my normal style.  It is fun to play though and see what goes in to making layouts with all these different styles.  Week 1 was grunge, which included the birthday page I posted last week, and two other pages:

All supplies from DIDer class materials
Papers and Flower from "My Favorite Things" by Connie Prince
Brushes and sketch from DIDer course materials

Week two is Freestyle, though because Jessica was sick last week, we've only finished one of the freestyle pages (which was just fine with me, because as usual, I was behind and used the extra time to catch up).

Kit: Flea Market Finds by Etc by Danyale (her first kit!!!)
Blue paper, sketch, and fonts from DIDer course materials

I'll admit, adding grunge to my pages isn't so difficult, but the freestyle is more of a challenge.  But it is a great challenge to mix things up a little bit, and there will be two more styles and 8 more pages before the class is over!

I also like to see my pages here on the blog because they make me notice patterns.  I've been scrapping John a lot lately, but not so much of Maggie.  I need to get the camera out and take more pictures of Maggie again, so I can  make more with her in them.  It's just hard, when her favorite activity is reading...I have lots of pics of her reading, but not much else!  Hopefully if the weather holds, I can get some of her riding her bike or playing out side.

I'll be back tomorrow and throughout the week with news from Crisdam Designs, Connie Prince, and Log Your Memory.  Lots going on!
