Creative Retreat Winter 2014

This month I am taking a new class with May Flaum and 9 crafty guest instructors. I've participated in a few of her Creative Retreat classes in the past, but this is the first one she has launched off of her new site so I am even more excited. Guest host Riikka Kovasin did a tutorial on mists and fun ways to use them. I was completely moved and inspired by her video. There was such an energy to it that made me rush right up to my scrap room and get working. I have never created a page with no plan and such free abandonment. It was awesome! This is hands down the most fun layout I have ever made.

NYC Mini Album

I've been working on a mini album of a work trip to NYC for quite some time now. The goal was to have 20 pages, but I ended up with 14. This is an example of where I did not have the best pictures in the world and was still able to make them look pretty and tell the story. Here are a few examples.

 This was taken out of the backseat of my car as we navigated through the snowstorm trying to make it to the train station on time. I used a vintage train schedule paper and a transparent overlay with clocks. We ended up missing the train.
 Love Tom Colicchio. Loved Craft. So delicious.

Amazing January sunsets every night.
