Haven't done much paper scrapping this year, but I stole a few hours during Nate's nap to work on the class assignments I missed in Cancun. Each day we were supposed to do a layout with a different approach, ie, design first, story first, photos first, product first, tools first. I knew that photos first was my comfort zone and that product first is easy for me because of my business. I found that story first was rather delightful as well. Design first was torture for me, and I gave up on tool first after 5 minutes of painful deliberation - definitely NOT my comfort zone.
I dusted off some "vintage" TLC product for these babies! I was also delighted to discover that I could print on a 12x12 sheet of cardstock even after adhering the ribbon and photo mat - it came out perfect! (my guy face)
