A citizen

I finally did it, this past Friday was my swearing in ceremony for citizenship at the Courthouse. I didn't really know what to expect, but it was really nice and there were quite a few of us, 35 in all, plus their families. The judge gave a little speech and we all had to swear our oath, received our certificates and that was it. Now I am an American citizen, woohoo! That was pretty exciting, Phil and Rachel were with me, but I didn't get a lot of pictures. Rachel didn't quite get it, she messed up a setting on the camera and thought she'd ruined it, so she quit taking pictures. Oh well.

On another note I just started another class at Debbie Hodge's and I am loving it already. It's all about designing your pages, what to think about and what to take into consideration etc. Really interesting. Here are the 2 pages I made so far, the first one was supposed to be assymetrical and the second one aligned. I think they came out okay.

1.Paper: A. Teets TightieWhieties
K.Pertiet Vintage text
torn strip: R. Fritschmann (Div.Dig.)
K.Pertiet Vintage frames, pinned frames
ribbon: 2Peas
red circle L. Grieveson web freebie (DD)
world: K. Pertiet, global brushes
stamp: K. Pertiet, vintage stamp
Alphas: K. Pertiet tailed alpha
Scrappykitten alpha

2.All supplies by M.Terasawa (DD) Flutterbutter kit

fonts: Embossed Germanica, Century Gothic, Moria

I used the first LO for the weekly challenge at the Spraground also, we were supposed to use b/w pictures, so that worked out well. It has been so busy lately, I had a lot of catching up to do. I am really trying to leave comments on every LO and every Photo a day posted on the site and this past weekend I got so behind. Yesterday it took me forever to get all my posting done and get my own photos ready to be posted. At least I am caught up now and can concentrate on my class. Jessica has some stuff up her sleeve too, June 4th is her first anniversary, so we'll see what she is going to come up with, some new classes maybe? The excitement is killing us.
