I have been along to a couple of scrapbooking classes recently and these are the first two 12"x12" LO's I have come up with on my own Cheesy

I am very pleased with them Cheesy. The first one I made was the "Belles of the Ball" page. It features me and 3 class mates at my grad ball. I still have to add the rest of the title in handwritting and I also have to add a bit of journaling hence why there is a blank rectangle on the layout at the moment.

The second one I made was the "Monkeying Around!" one. It features photos taken while in Thailand. I thought the pics of myself and my boyfriend were kinda silly and because we also took pictures of the monkeys that we saw, I thought it would make a good theme, hence the title of the page "Monkeying Around!" was coined. I may add some outlines around the text (to make it stand out a little more) and add the date and place to the layout to finish it off but I'm not 100% sure yet.

C&C welcomed Cheesy

I love how you incorporated cutouts on each page... it really helps break up what could otherwise be kinda boxy. Plus it gives both pages a really fun feel!

I think you did a great job! You should see my first 12x12 - UGH!

Thanks guys Cheesy

Now I have to make an attempt at using more embellishments on my page instead of just the odd brad or eyelet Smiley

I went to a mini album class last night and made a mini album shaped like a handbag.  I will post pictures later.  I am soooo pleased with how it turned out!

I also did a hand stitching class so I will post the results of that once I finish all the stitching!
