Get a LOAD Of This!

I may not have posted for a few days but I've not been idle. As well as packing up at the old store, I signed up for the free class 'Get a LOAD of This' at BPS. 'LOAD' stands for LayOut A Day - clever huh? Anyway, these are my LOs from January 1st & 2nd.
This first one is 8x8 & no matter what I did, I couldn't get a decent photo or scan. I'm still on a mission to use my scraps - and all my old stash, scrap or otherwise. This one uses MAMBI 8x8 Collage Papers, HOTP cardstock, Making Memories snaps & a couple of buttons. The ribbon was free with a magazine I think. You'll have to take my word for it that the photo is actually a good one - taken of Fish at the garden centre where we go to visit Santa every year. The second is photos from when we took fish to the Zoo in 2006. I'd had this TLC kit for about 3 years or so - earmarked for these photos but hadn't got around to it yet. The class was just the excuse I needed to finally do it. Probably my quickest LO to date but it still took an hour! So either I need to scrap quicker - or stop signing up for things where you need to create something every day!
Seriously tho' - it's a great challenge and even if you didn't scrap every day, it could be the incentive to finish up a few half done LOs or use up some of that forgotten stash that I know you have! It's not too late to join in - they are accepting registrations until January 15th.

And while we are on the subject of free classes, look out for a post coming later today. A sneak peek of the free class I'll be running over at My Creative Classroom at the end of the month. You must be signed up to the MCC newsletter to be offered the free classes & there will be loads to choose from, with a whole bunch of different instructors. Don't miss out - it's gonna be a blast!
