Sorry gang that I have been MIA the last little while. I've been so busy with life and so tired from running around that I haven't had a chance to sit down and blog. But now I have a little moment to write. I have been trying to be creative these days and made a few projects which I hope to share with all of you shortly. 

In the meantime I'll share some other work I did last month for DT/teaching.

Here is a mini album I made using Fancy Pants Like Father Like Son line and was my May project for Crop Chocolate. 
Speaking of Crop Chocolate, I had to finally say goodbye to that design team job.  It was too much on my plate, working full time, teaching at my LSS  Pointer Scrapbooking and being on this design team.  My energy now will be focusing on doing more work of my own and perhaps get more stuff published (or at least attempt to get published).

This past month at Pointer Scrapbooking I've been teaching a new class for me, called Rapid Fire Scrapbooking ( 6 pages in 2 hours). The idea being that every month the class would make 6 new pages that they would have completed for their album.  Here's a sample of one I did for the class.
I will try and post some of the layouts and creative stuff I've been up to soon!

Some stuff that has been keeping me busy....

As promised here are the cards I took with Nicky Manel in her watercolouring class at Pointer Scrapbooking.  Ignore the image though of the top right one, I totally messed up the image Nicky gave us and went on my own to do one using the technique she taught's obvious I need more practice. Nicky is an awesome teacher, so if you get a chance, go and take her class.

I recently completed this kit from Basic Grey using their Curio line of paper. Awesome paper line.

There was so much left over in the kit, that I decided to go on my own and make some more cards, inspired by the kit. I didn't put any greetings on the front yet, as I like to have lots of generic cards and put sentiments on before I give them.  Here are the cards I came up with.

And as promised here are some layouts I did recently. (Click on images to get larger view)
