I discovered a really cool new challenge blog! Thanks to my awesome friend Julie TW, who has a link to it on her blog, I found "Scrap That Poetry!" I love poetry, and I've never seen a challenge blog that uses it before - so cool! Anyhoo, their featured poem this week is "Phenomenal Woman" by Maya Angelou. I've always loved this poem, so I just had to play along! Here's how my layout turned out...The photo is of my niece Liz, sister Renee, me and our Mom - Pat. I am so proud to be part of a family of strong women, who I think are phenomenal!!!
I used the September Studio Calico kit. The title is handpainted and outlined with a sharpie. The alphabet stamps are by Stampin Up.
The Autumn=Love class is still going great! Elsie and Rachel have such cute and fun projects, and my favorite part is that there are so many different types of crafts covered! The latest thing we are learning is making things out of plastic shopping bags! My only problem is that I've fallen way behind, what with our vacation and all; but the good news is that the website is staying up for a whole year, so I will be able to work my way through the projects at my own pace - YEAYYY!!! I will be sure to share with you as I finish them.
I've fallen slightly behind on my Project 365 photos again - AARGH! I seem to be having a harder time remembering to take photos! I am definitely going to catch up again tho - I've made it this far - I won't give up now!
Don't forget - today is the last day to submit your "favorite season" layout at the "My Favorite Things" blog! Tomorrow the new challenge goes live!
Also, you have until the end of the month to play along with the October sketch over at the TATS blog!
That's it for today! I wish you a fantastic Thursday my friends! I will be back tomorrow with another update - thanks for stopping by!
