Well everyone this is a post I am very sorry I have to record. I broke my leg on Thursday, Oct 25. It was splinted in the ER and will be going to see the orthopedic doctor on Monday. Life is full of surprises and I know you just need to roll with it. I am not mobile at the moment so classes of any type are out of the question for November and, perhaps December too. I will know more once I meet with the doctor. I hope everyone is having a wonderful fall and a really fun halloween.

I am learning to use the alcohol markers, Spectrum Noir, available at the store. I am no expert but thought it would be fun to stamp and color as part of this class. As requested, I am trying to include some stamping and/or embossing as part of the classes. The other card may be a flip flop style or other - just not decided yet. I will post which markers I am using in case you wish to bring your own or similar. I have been having fun with these markers, and when purchased using a coupon, the price is very affordable.
I have tentatively planned for 2 - 1 page layouts. One will be whimsy, using Create a Critter 2, and have a Happy New Year theme, the other will be with A Quilted Christmas, and be a January theme. I will need to complete the layouts soon because my beloved Gypsy will have to go back to PC. I have had my Gypsy since launch and the battery is just tuckered out. I purchased a new Gypsy and will begin the re - serialization process once it arrives. Hope everyone is having a wonderful fall.

All the papers I used for this "Savannah" shaped book were from DCWV Animal Crackers. The font I used was Hello Kitty which is nice and chunky. I did back all pages with cereal box chipboard. I didn't want the book too large so the letters all look like a jumble - which is really not my preference. I have made some later books which are longer and used poster board. Really fun.
