Class shares.

Hi there bloggers,
Today I have dropped in to share a quick post and some layouts from DT spots and classes
I taught last year.
I actually forgot to post them here .... oops! I went through my blog and realized they
were nowhere to be seen -dopey me.
First up I have a DT layout for Scrapmatts
'Beautiful Lyon' 

I'm told this is one of the all time favourite class layouts that I have taught
'Eternal moments'
This is also a class layout and Scrapmatts DT layout featuring some 7Dots Studio Destination unknown paper and tags. I said this was a quick post - time for sleep!

Buckle up - Prima Bap for February!

Hi there bloggers!
I got 2 huge happy mail packages this week
1. full of the latest
'NEW' Scrapmatts releases and my oh my! are the just 'to die for'.
I have been wanting chains in chipboard for so long and the buckles -TDF!!!
2. Prima from Your Scrapbook Supply with the latest Papers and Finnabair products.
With these new releases - I'm in heaven.....I did mix a little of the older Prima products in though because I can't resist those too!
So I decided to do a really dark, grungy mixed media layout......

For sketch inspiration, I decided to join in with the Prima February's Build A Page sketch challenge:
