Design Your Life

I've decided to take another class. I've enjoyed my Got Sketch class - in many ways it's forcing me, I mean giving me a reason to create! (i have to figure out how to do the strike out thing - maybe that's a typepad feature).
My new class is going to be somewhat "advanced" compared to Got Sketch (or at least I'm hoping so given the price difference)!!!

I'm taking a class called Design Your Life with Cathy Zielske. Cathy has a graphic design background so it sounds like she'll be teaching us "design concepts." I'm hoping to learn a LOT. There is going to be a lot of work involved but I'm all for pushing my creativity to the next level. Who knows, I may even get a bit dirty and not rush to wash it off.

There is already preliminary class work to do, including printing a few GIANT pictures. That should be interesting. Serves me right - I've been complaining for the past 3 years that I've only had 4x6 pictures to work with so now we're pulling out the big guns!

You know how I know I'll like the class? The first order of business was to go shopping! I can do that. I'm an EXPERT shopper. I sent my "wish list" over to Jenn at the Scrapbox, hopefully she can hook me up.

Tonight was a relatively productive night. I had a few layouts to finish up. Denis went out to Henrys and bought a light box for taking pictures of my pages. It looks like this:

Unfortunately I can't show my pages on here because I plan to submit them. I'm going to go for it. Try it out. I've never submitted anything before. It would be SO COOL if something panned out. Ironically enough the pages I can't post are my favourites. Hopefully your first peak will be on the pages of a glossy magazine!
Well, just finishing the last few minutes of Grey's Anatomy and then off to bed.
Tomorrow I'm going for Thai with my former team - the DREAM TEAM. I can't wait. I miss seeing them everyday so it will be fun to catch up.
Tomorrow is also game day - GO BLUE.
Happy almost Friday.
night lovelies,

yeahhhhhh! I'm really happy that you got the light box, can't wait and see the result! It was great (even if it was short) to see you last night at the store. Have a great w-end dear friend! Hugs S xx
