I'm very excited to announce that I'm on the Design Team at Sharing Memories Scrapbooking Noreen and I have been virtual friends and are fellow Albertans. We 'met' through a Big Picture Scrapbooking class.
Now onto my other news, that I've been keeping a secret for awhile, I'm a coach for the Library of Memories class that Stacy Julian teaches at Big Picture Scrapbooking. (LOM and BPS for short, remember those I'll be referring to them often). I was surprised and honoured when I got an email from Stacy asking me if I would consider being a coach this year. Ummm, let me think about that....YES!! Check out Stacy's post
I took LOM for the first time in 2008 and it changed the way I scrapbook forever. No more chronological chains weighing me down. Making cool connections. Mixing photos from different years on one page. No stress to stay caught up. No stress to scrap every. single. photo. I've ever taken. I'm excited to join in helping others take their LOM journey. More to come on all this.
I'm also doing (for the 3rd time since last February) LayOut A Day (LOAD) challenge put on by Lain Ehmann. You have to do one layout each day for the month and post them to a Flickr gallery each day to be entered to win some prizes. I don't even care about the prizes, the challenge is really scrapbook life changing. You really discover alot about your style, what supplies you really use and how well they are stored. This challenge is really possible when you have a LOM system set up. It's so easy to find pictures to scrap each day.
Be patient with me I'm learning this blogging thing, making links, adding blinkies etc. For example, I can't get a double space between my LOM and LOAD paragraph. Grrr. :)
