Here are a few things that you will need to bring to class.
2. piece of sandpaper 100 grit
3. glue I prefer mono multi
4. a black scrapbook marker and a Sharpie
5. it's important to bring a 3\4 inch flat paint brush and a #2 flat brush. I got this variety pack at Hobby Lobby and it has everything you need in it. The brand is Loew Cornell and the pack style is#2112 . You can see the number in the top right corner of the pack.
Also if you want to trace a pattern so that you can make more of these, bring a 1\2 piece of poster board and a pencil to class.

Since my class is all about canvas, I also have a few tricks up my sleeve using different types. So come get in touch with the artist inside you and lets have fun!
Paint brushes (just bring what you have. I will have some to use)
Brown ink pad
adhesive (a liquid glue works best)
Class fee is $25. If you can't come, but would like a kit call the store.
See ya soon!

Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year. Every year about this time I start getting impatient for that hint of color in the leaves and the first cool snap. Since it is still muggy and hot around here I thought I would have a class to take my mind off of the fact that fall just isn’t coming fast enough.
When you think of fall, which favorite memories come to mind? Is it the Halloween costumes, trips to the pumpkin patch, or nature walks in the colorful leaves? What if you could scrapbook all of those memories in one double 12x12 spread?
In this class we will create a double page layout with a twist! We will be incorporating a 12x12 page protector that holds 4x6 photos. This will allow you to use 12 or more photos from the fall happenings of years past, or the ones just around the corner.
Date: Thursday Sept. 18th 6pm-8pm
12-14 random fall photos (4x6 landscape will work best).
Brown ink (any brand)
If you can not attend, but would like a kit call the store and get your name on the list.
See ya there!

If you have a teenager then you probably have photos that look just like these. Every single photo Savannah takes is extremely close up and usually involves some kind of kissy face.

My niece got married last weekend and it was a beautiful wedding. I didn't get a good photo of the bride and groom because they had hired an amazing photographer and I was trying to stay out of his way.
I did get a few good shots of Savannah and Eric and since it's father's day, I thought I would share. This photo captures their relationship. They are very close and are always laughing and carrying on like two little kids (taking them to Wal Mart is impossible). Eric is an amazing father, he has always made daddy and daughter time for Savannah. They have been going to Jacks every Saturday for as long as I can remember and I'm NOT invited. This morning at church it made me realized just how blessed I am when I saw Savannah standing by her dad with her hand on his neck praying for him. It was such a special sight.
Ok, back to the real reason I started this post. I wanted to share the album I made for Emily and Todd. I would love to have photos of my first house like this. How wonderful this will be to look back on in 10 years. I used a canvas board for the front and back cover and Jenni B cards for some of the inside pages.
