Too many classes

at least that is the excuse de jour! I haven't posted on this blog for what seems like forever. This class with Jessica is really taking up a lot of time and doing the template class with Pattie on top of it.... why do I do this to myself, I wonder?! I really enjoy the writing class, we are supposed to set and write for 15 minutes a day, free writing, about anything at all. The first day I wrote almost 5 pages, amazing. I thought I had nothing to say. I just don't know what to do with all those ramblings. Unless there are matching photos I have a tough time making them into pages. It is a really interesting class. On one day we get the writing assignment and the next day we use that text on a template LO. Liv and Jess are taking turns giving the assignment. They really have put an awful lot of time and effort into these lessons, they are so well written and composed and just delightful! I highly recommend it. Let me see if I can come up with the pages I have

credits one, credits two, credits three

done so far These are the ones from their class. Now the whole composition was there already. All we had to do was to add the photos and papers, so they are not very individual. I changed a few little things here and there. I really liked the part of the last one where we used Wordl to add this word overlay at the bottom, so easy and fast. The words actually come from this blog, too cool!

Then there are the pages I did for Pattie's template class

Summer-MemoriesOne-more-time

On-your-own-chall.

Remember

They are fun too and we get free kits from Designer Digitals to go with them.

Yesterday was the day of the big chat at Designer Digitals, all day long, every hour about a different subject with a freebie to go along. I did three LOs during the day. One had to be finished in 30 minutes, that is always a tough one for me, it takes me that long to pick a photo, LOL

change 5-things

change Five Things

the third one was actually the circle one, I used it twice, always frugal! That was a really stressful day, I had Gabrielle's birthday party going on from 3 to 5, so I could only take peeks at the computer here and there. My little girl is 13! Officially a teenager! Where did the time go? I know that the next 10 years are just going to fly by too. How cheerful! I will save the sad rambling for my journaling, LOL . Well, I will add the credits later, hubby is waiting to watch a movie

Wow Anke you have been busy. I think I just might have to lift that one "adds up to". Really like that design. As always--love your work. You are so good putting elements together. Enjoy the kids now---they will be out of the house before you know it. My last one is a junior--where did the time go. Some days I'm counting down until graduation! LOL

Wow you have done so much scrappin! And all the layouts are wonderful.
I joined in the chat at DD in the last hour :-( but did manage to score a wonderful freebie that hour.

LOL... how many times have I wrung my hands after bashing my head against the wall, saying, "Why do I do this to myself?" I see that I'm in good company.

But you, my dear, your talent is so intense that you MUST continue to scrap. It is your duty to the world.
