Art of Observation Week 2

So sorry I haven't been posting much. I'm taking the class over at Big Picture Classes with Heidi Swapp, I've got my submissions for Jessica Sprague's Creative Design Team, and to top it off it's TAX WEEK at work, and I've had company at my house for the last 4 weekends. So I haven't had a lot of time for cardmaking. I'll be back! This week's focus in our Heidi Swapp Art of Observation Class is Anticipation. For this class we are making a memory file to plan an event of some sort, later we will add the actual event photos and memories to the file. This was a fun challenge. Hard to scrap ahead of time, but in actuality, this portion of the folder will help me think about the upcoming event, what I need to pack, my travel arrangements, what I want to do while I'm there, etc. I chose my upcoming trip (2nd week of May) to Pebble Beach for work and then a quick visit to my brother in Los Angeles. I can't wait!!
I'm still waiting on my Heidi Swapp Sugar Chic things to arrive, so in the meantime I'm using these fun folders I bought at Staples.
I'm hoping my Sugar Chic Collection arrives within the next day or two.  I've been tracking it at Fed Ex and it seems to be stuck in Phoenix!?!  It went from Tucson to Phoenix where it has sat for 3 days.  I thought for sure it would be here by today. 

I made some elements in Photoshop.  It's pretty simple, but I always end up going back and blinging after the fact.  It's just how I scrap.
