Well yesterday kicked off Shimelle's Learn Something New Every Day class and I'm signed up.
The first day was great, I'm off work this week so had the luxury of reading the prompt when it arrived. After that I went for coffee with a good friend and, yes, I did learn my first lesson of the day. We went to a lovely coffee shop that also sells a range of sweets from bygone days:
Later that evening I went off to a crop. I had a layout with a deadline, a scraplift. The only trouble was I was uninspired by the layout I had to lift. I thought long and hard and, with the help of the Gotta Craft crop kit I'd just bought, came up with this:
I also added a bit of texture to my layout:
Now on to my album. Another thing I've thought long and hard about and this is what I've come up with. I have an old Sizzix die of a pocket and, as I only intend to do a sentence a day and maybe include a small photo, I'm going to make this into my album. I'll cut the pages from cardstock, add some patterned paper and embellishments to the front and write my sentence on the back. When I'm finished I'll bind it together with ribbon and, voila, I'll have my pocket book :)
Can't wait to blog hop later and see what lessons everyone learnt yesterday but, for now, I'm off for another coffee morning :)
Have a good Friday
