Monday Night Sketches class at home...
the gals always leave with 3 complete 12 x 12 layouts and here's a few pictures of two of them...
( sorry tara...i thought i took a picture of the other one too...-ooops! )
Last night's class featured using
on your layouts!!!
here's my samples I did:
-painting bubble wrap

-using bleach on bubble wrap...
i love this one....i also painted Heidi Swapp clear ghost letters in my title and stapled them onto the cardstock...so fun!

..and of course some hand stitching and buttons on the bottom...
by the end of the night, i don't think a few of the ladies ( ahem, Mary and Tracy ..hahhha ) wanted to stitch, but I made them ( at Nerf gunpoint - HA ) and I think they were quite happy that they did do the stitching afterall...
it just adds a total artistic feel to a layout...i love stitching!!

..the third layout we used BINGO DABBERS on bubble wrap to embellish!

...and i will leave you with a couple more pic's of my handsome little man from sunday afternoon's photoshoot at the tea!!!
( hee hee hee...the others are in the above layout already!! )

Hi Kim.
Just checking out your great blog! I am enjoying it so much!
I had so much fun on Monday night! I have not laughed that hard in a very long time! All at poor Mary's expense! I was still laughing the next day when I told my hubby & kids about how she 'panicked' when she looked and there was no button on her thread!! :)
Thanks so much for being so patient to us! I loved what we came away with, and loved sharing the evening with you all. Everyone at my house was VERY impressed that I could actually do that!!
Can't wait to do it again!
