I know I've mentioned this site before, but I just wanted to give it a special blurb because I really do love it and know you will, too. It's a great site for online classes and a great message board!! The ladies on the board all love scrapping and crafting and are all very sweet. There are weekly and monthly challenges, games, chatting and everything in between. (I actually won last month's monthly page layout challenge!!! Check out my page on the home page listed below!!)
I'm taking my first class there this month and I'm having a BLAST. It's a ribbon class. We've learned numerous new ways to use ribbon, have supported each other in challenges and in learning these techniques, we've chatted about all things ribbon and many of us have won some fabulous prizes already!! I've had a TON of ribbon sitting around for years but have never really known how to use it until now (other than just tying it around something!). And there's still more for us to learn this month. Jayne really created an awesome curriculum with this class.
Next month is a Holiday Hustle card class, then some other classes coming up include journaling and sketches. Go check out the site and the message board- I promise you won't be sorry!!!

In case I haven't mentioned it, I have separate albums for Joshua and for myself. I try to individualize the journaling and pics as much as possible. The idea is that when he's grown, he can have his albums and I'll still have mine to look at and enjoy. I'll be making three of most things pretty soon!! I finished up scrapping my birthday for our albums. I'm still a couple of months behind so I need to get caught up SOON. Just thought I'd share these with you.

Do you all add calendar pages to your scrapbooks? I love them! I keep one on the fridge all of the time to record the little things that happen in our daily lives. Teeth coming in, funny things Joshua says, things we do, places we go, friends we see, etc. Here's my latest one. I completed it for a challenge in the ribbon class I'm taking. That is such a FUN class. Not only do we learn new techniques, but we get all kinds of fun challenges to complete, games to play and prizes to win. I hope you will all have a chance to take a class through Feeling Scrappy. Next month is a great Christmas card class to get your cards done early. Check it out at feelingscrappy.com!!!

Here's a new sketch for you...I have pages with lots of pics coming up so that's where my mind is right now! You could always use some of the boxes for journaling or accents if you don't have a lot of pictures. I have another sketch I'm working on for the Flower Power contest at feelingscrappy.com and I'll post it when I finish. :) Have a great scrappy day!!
