Creating with Shimelle and collection packs

I signed up for this class the other day- and in one evening was amazed at how many starter layouts I could get done. I was steaming into them after reading Shimelle's instructions... I decided to not faff about and just go for the cutting and was so pleased at how quickly you can get some great base layouts ready to go. I've got  quite a few holiday pics that i want to scrap - so this is perfect for them. I've just laid some photos on to get a feel for how they will look once all the other bits and pieces are on and I'm happy so far.
Great stuff - thanks Shimelle.
I've had this idea in mind for a 'Camels and Cactus' layout and was very pleased to be able to finally make a start on it...( I know, I just had this thing about doing a layout with camels and cactuses on it!)
I used a reasonably old collection pack - Fancy Pants Wishful Thinking - and one random strip of Bo Bunny! Anyone else out there doing it?

                                           These are the base layouts so far

and a double - the base of 'Camels and Cactus'!
Not bad for one evening, considering I don't normally sit down till about 8.30 - 9 in the evening! It really has got the old mojo going..

Can't believe how much you got done in one session! Looks like it is a good course to have signed up for, will be great to see the finished layouts.
