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 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'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 signed up for yet another class. It's The Art of Observation class with Heidi Swapp at BigPictureClasses.com. The class is based on (of course) Observations. Learning to observe your world and not just busily pass through it. Heidi then shows you a fun new way to document your observations utilizing her new Memory File System, which is a way of scrapbooking in a file folder. It's so fun and inspirational. We just finished the first lesson and I believe you can still enroll through tomorrow.
|This is my file folder. I have Heidi's new product line ordered, but it's not arrived yet, so I used what I have.|
|Here is the inside of my book. It's so fun. Very interactive! Heidi designed this cute mini book to go inside.|
|Here is a picture of one page in my mini book|
|The last page of my memory file. See that word beautiful? Heidi gave us the png file and I cut it out with the Silhouette Cameo. Isn't it awesome. I just love the delicate cuts of the Cameo and Heidi's handwriting is gorgeous!|

Samantha Walker Cottontails Papers & Embelishments. It's such a fun and springy kit. I wish I had Easter Photos to plug in to the photo slots, but that was a long time ago. Someday there will be little ones around again, until then, you get last year's spring blooms.
