I started going to a scrapbook class at Whole Lotta Scrap a while back called a Basic Grey Class.  This month it has been changed around to be called just Sketchbook class cause we are going to be using a lot of different and new paper lines.  This month we used the new Carta Bella "Beautiful Moments".

 This is the scrapbooking sketch book we have been using in the past.  It is loaded with a lot of layouts and each month Jamie the instructor picks out a layout and paper pack for us to try.  Here is an example of a sketch from the book...not this months sketch. 
 This is a picture of my layout that I finished.  It doesn't look at all like the teachers or the sketch book sketch either one.  I always do that and switch up the things to suit my mood.  But then that's what should should be motivated to do your own work not someone elses.  I am happy with it. 
I was telling Chuck that sometimes I surprise myself with the way these things turn out.  See the way the circles at the top and bottoms line up and fit together?  I didn't do that on purpose.  As a matter of fact I had screwed up and turned the paper borders upside down and glued them down making me have to change my layout to cover up some of the upside downess of the line.  Oh mistakes that work out well!
