Kim's class!

Wow, I had such a fun night! I did an online class with one of my scrap idols, Kim Archer, and I am so thrilled with my page!!! I used some machine stitching, painting and sanding on my layout and I hand-wrote the journaling. I kept my layout quite similar to Kim's - I loved her original with the painted and sanded chipboard letters and flower and wanted the same effect on my page. And I couldn't help but throw in a couple of bits of the new American Crafts ribbons...LOVE those! OMG I have such a ribbon stash that it's not funny anymore!!!! Oh, and the patterened paper is from the MAMBI Chester range (loooove them!!!!!) and LOOK - NO KI ANYWHERE ON THE PAGE ROFL ;P !!!!!!

Anyhow, if anyone's interested in taking one of Kim's classes, be they in person through The Scrapbook Megastore in Newcastle or via her new online classes (coming up soon), I highly recommend them! Kim is an AMAZING scrapbook artist and a kind, lovely, welcoming person...she really makes you feel at ease. I have wanted to do one of her classes for a looooong time, but I live in Queensland and she's in Newcastle so it's a bit hard for me to get there, and the online classes are a fab way to do a class with her when you live so far away! Wish I had a chance to chat to everyone more though...too busy scrapping though lol ;P

Best of luck with your online classes in the future Kim!!!!

Thank you all sooooo much for the gushing compliments about my new look...what a HUGE boost for my self-esteem (which has been suffering a little of late)!! And stay tuned for my layout...putting the finishing touches to it tonight ;D

Thanks Melissa :D No, I mixed up my own shade of pink using my artist's acrylics (I paint too);P It still turned out pretty similar to the pink betty Heidi colour though!
