Learn Something New Every Day...

Not sure if I mentioned a little while ago about the "Learn Something New Every Day" class by Shimelle? Anyway originally it was an on-line class that she held last September. It's being re-run this September (think you can still sign up) and she has this little nice thing (just like with her Christmas class) that if you have already take it, it's free to take again.

So I thought ---> should I do it again? Uhm...hrm....YES! I gathered my bits for the class and then I kinda didn't get any further. I was waiting for some supplies in the post...and well I'm sure we all know what a handy "excuse" that can be to put something off LOL!

I wasn't putting it off because I didn't want to do it, but simply because I couldn't decide on what format book to make. In the end I decided on 15x10 cm (6x4 for those of you who use inches!). That way I could make a double-spread each day, letting my photo be one of the pages. A neat format I have used before and really liked it. So yesterday was the day to start (catching up!) for me and here are my first few pages. I decided to go with a very simple style which I could vary a little each day:

And talking about classes. There's this BPS class which was mentioned already in April as "coming soon". A doodling class - how fun!! I have been wanting to do it ever since and today was finally the day you could sign up for it. :) It's called Doodle All Day and runs in October. You even get the doodling book (yay have I been wanting this or what LOL!) so make sure you choose the right option if you sign up. There are different prices depending on where you live - for the shipping cost of the book. And want to know something else - a nice little extra bonus - if you sign up before the 9th you can use this code: btsatbps and you get $5 off the price :) Anyone going to join me...?

I'm trying to join you in the doodling class but there seems to be a checkout problem at the moment. Hopefully it will be sorted out soon.

The circle stamp on the first two pages with the date is neat. Do you mind saying what brand it is & where you got it. Love your blog, you are very talented.
