Look at me! I'm scrapbooking!

It's been a while. After a wonderful marathon weekend retreat back in July where I made lots and lots of pages, I've done very little.  I made a few pages in August, but still haven't added the journaling, so they sit unfinished on my desk.

Enter Allison Davis' Sketch Support Class over at My Creative Classroom.  I've loved Allison's sketches for a while now, so signing up for the class was a no brainer.  Plus, some of my online friends from Scrap Central at iVillage were also signing up, which made it that much better.

Our first assignment was to create a layout based on the sketch using a "simple" approach where you follow the sketch exactly, and another layout where you use an "enhanced" or "extreme" method and use the sketch more as a jumping off point, but modify things as you see fit.

Here's my "simple" layout:

This one features Basic Grey "Hello Luscious" papers from a 6x6 pad...I covered up the seams with photos and embellishments...need to remember that!

And here's my "extreme" layout (I completely bypassed the "enhanced" method!)

This one uses quite old My Mind's Eye paper (anyone remember "Bohemia"?). Glad to use up some of my stash!

I love that I've got two completely different looking  layouts with just one sketch. If you're interested in the class, another session will be starting up in November.
