Four...count 'em...Four layouts!

Last week I started a new class over at Big Picture Classes called Sketch Solutions
The class shows you how to adapt sketches to fit your needs, how to adjust for different photo sizes and orientations. Maybe you just want to use a certain embellishment on your layout but the original sketch doesn't allow for that, Donna Jannuzzi is showing us how to remedy those kind of things.
It's a great class!

 I was out of town attending the fabulous wedding of my niece, Tori, last weekend and ended up playing a bit of catch-up yesterday. I managed to complete FOUR layouts.
I'm sure that's some kind of record for me.

This was my "practice" layout-
Supplies: Bazzill- Echo Park-Twine- Wooden Buttons- Enamel Dots

Lesson 1:
I've used these photos of Mason so many times, but they are some of my favorites, so I say go for it!
Supplies: Bella Blvd- Enamel Dots- Silhouette Cameo

Lesson 2:
This lesson called for a 5X7 photo. I don't usually have enlargements on hand, 
so I used Brody's birth announcement. It was the perfect size.
I can't believe this little guy will be a year old this week! EEK!
Supplies: Bella Blvd-American Crafts-Washi Tape-Enamel Dots-Bazzill

Lesson 3:
I kind of wanted an "Americana" feel for this one...Not sure I accomplished that, but it was still a lot of  fun to do!
Supplies: Lily Bee Design-Bazzill-Brad-Silhouette Cameo

So there you have it, four layouts! 
Maybe the key to keeping the blog updated it to take more classes!

Have a WONDERFUL day and thanks for stopping by!
