saturday special - june 2

Hello June! And welcome summer!!

This weekend, we are celebrating my daughter's 6th birthday. She's all smiles and so proud to be such a big girl now. I think she's just so lovely.

A few things happening in my world and online world this week.

1. Crop & Create is coming to Ottawa on September 28-29, 2012! WOOOOOT! I'm pretty excited that it's coming to Ottawa and that Vicki Boutin, Kelly Goree and Kelly Purkey will be teaching some awesome classes. Between you and me, I really enjoy taking scrapbooking classes because I always end up surprising myself.

Registration starts on June 5th at 8:00 p.m. Check out all the deets on this web page

2. My friend Diane aka The Crazy Good Diva aka The Last Diva Standing has challenged the divas to a summer challenge: Make 60 layouts between June 1st and August 31st and give yourself a gift. I'm going for it because I want the Crop-a-Dile Big Bite from We R Memory Keepers.
3. I love this card by Joy Taylor at Basic Grey. It's simple but kinda cool, don't you think? Bonus: there's a video tutorial to show you to make it. And that's super cool.

3. Debbie Hodge blogged about the four things that ground a layout -- alignment, grouping, layering and repitition . I always enjoy reading about the basics because they are a good refresher to ground me.
Super cool layout by Sara Gleason to show alignment.
