next sketch class (and giveaway!)

Today, I’m off to teach a couple of classes, so I’m going to try to make this a quick post.

Every month, I’ve been responsible for teaching a sketch class over at one of the local scrapbook stores in my area, and it’s been doing wonderfully. People seem to really be enjoying it, so I’m going to continue to teach it. For my August sketch class, I used this week’s sketch over at Sketchy Thursdays.

Here’s the sketch:

…and like the previous classes I have taught, I create two (2) layouts per sketch. Here are the projects that I created:

((Sorry for the not so great photos. I took them really early this morning, and I think I was half asleep.))

If you are interested in taking this class, check here for updates and details. πŸ™‚

Oh, and I almost forgot… Today was my day to post over at Urban Swank, so I did a quick post on a really simply layout I created.

…and because I’m feeling generous this morning, let’s do a giveaway for a $30 package of Urban Swank goodies! Here’s how to play:

1. Visit this post and leave a comment.

2. Come back here and let me know that you left a comment.

3. Deadline to be entered into this giveaway is Monday, July 19th, by 11:59 pm.

Good luck to everyone who plays.

Now, I’m off to start my day. Hope everyone has a wonderful Saturday!

    Sarah, I left a comment and it said it had to be approved before it posted, so…. if it doesn’t get approved ( what do they do? A background check? Fingerprints? ha!ha!) I said your pages always have such a timeless and classic beauty. They will be in style ten years from now as they are today! My first scrapbook pages are full of triangles out of patterned paper! How dreadful! 😦 As always, your pages are amazing!
