Digi scrapping

As a birthday present to me I treated myself to the Now We're Rockin' with Photoshop class over at Jessica Sprague. I actually managed to complete all the lessons during the 4 weeks which is a first for me, I rarely complete online classes and never within the class timeframe. I really enjoyed the lessons, was impressed with the new skills I was learning and pleased with the finished layouts, all of which helped motivate me to finish the class. I am tempted to join the next session of Digi in Deep to add to my new found Photoshop skills and am also keeping my eyes peeled for the next pen tablet class as I am still getting to grips with mine and really don't think I have found out its true potential yet. Anyway here are a couple of the layouts from the lessons...

Layouts challenge

Feeling rather guilty about the growing stack of untouched Scrapagogo kits building up under my desk I decided to set myself a challenge to make a layout from every one of them before my September kit arrived. That didn't sound too tough until I realised that I had 10 kits completely unused meaning I had 10 layouts to make in just under a month. Amazingly I did manage it and have finally got around to photographing and uploading the results. I have now discovered that having a deadline really helps to get me motivated to get things done.

Here are a few of the layouts that I created...

Sweet - using July's kit

Cute - using February's kit

Kiss - using March's kit

Beautiful Sunset - using August's kit
