It's alive!!


  Sorry for my very long blogging absence.
We have been in California for 5 months now and yes, we are settled in, thank you.
I think my best excuse for being MIA is that California is just so sunny that you never wanna be inside:)

I found a very nice scrapbook store in my area - Ever After Scrapbooks- and on Friday night I went there for a canvas class. I thought the instructor would be some neighborhood rookie, but it turns out that Suzy West is a well known scrapper who travels the world to share her talent. Wow! She inspired me so much that I got my scrappy mojo back!
This is what I created in a few hours. My very first canvas project:



( this is all Suzy's design and I just did what she told me to do)

I had so much fun working with canvas that the very next day I went to Michael's to pick up the stuff I needed to create my own.
I made this cute picture for my daughter:




And then I continued to make this:




I think you could say that I'm totally hooked on canvases right now! What about you? I'm curious to find out how many of you have tried working on canvas. Please leave a comment on this post and you will be in the random drawing to win this:




It's a nice little fall kit with gorgeous papers from Bo Bunny plus some other stuff I had laying around. So don't forget to leave a comment:)

 I'm working on a tutorial right now for a mini album made with envelopes. Super easy and fun.


 
Take care and I'll be back soon...in a few months or so...ha,ha....
