Day one - fab

How quickly did that go ? I can't believe how the class with Shimelle flew by today.We managed to construct pages for a whole album- a brilliant size of 8 1/2 x 11. This is a lovely size to do as its just big enough to have room for embellishments as well as photos but not quite as large to fill as a 12 x 12.
We've got the pages to a 'base ' level and will be able to embellish and add things as we go along with some advisory emails from Shimelle.
I've had lots of old photos of the boys when they were little sitting in a box for ages now and decided to sift through and use them for the class - am really pleased I took the time to sort some out as I think I will really like the end result. You know when as a Mum you have your own little favourite photos that warm your heart? well there are a few in here and I'm looking forward to getting it finished - just for me !  A bit indulgent but hey ho.Here is a pic of the front page and one of the inside double layouts - to be embellished a bit more...
...and now I shall go and make sure my scheduled post is all ready to go for the 'House Party' tomorrow - should be fun...

So glad you had a lovely day, yesterday, with the awesome Shimelle. Like you I was making my album with old photos of Gracia and spent the day in a happy bubble or warm memories.

Love your little house on today's post and am now off to look at what all the other people have done.
