Bye bye June

I took a couple of classes this weekend at PMP with Becky Fleck, an artist and designer for Basic Grey, my favorite sb paper company.
I took the 1st class with my friend Doris, but she had to abandon me before the 2nd class. I guess her duties at her temple bazaar were more important than another class with me. I wonder about her priorities sometimes. Not only that, but we weren't able to finish the album in class, so I suggested that we get together on Wednesday to finish it. Well, the woman is leaving for Italy on Wednesday, once again leaving me in the dust. Whatever. Well...I showed her. I finished both albums on my own before I went to the temple to help at the bazaar on Sunday. Here are just a few pics:

Adventures of the Heart
This is a cool journal-style album. The idea is to journal about your goals and dreams at this moment in time.
Adventures of the Heart

A spot to write down goals.

A spot to write down your beliefs. Quote on the left reads: "You can't set the course for where you are going until you know where you are."

The back page has a pocket to tuck in your own personal mantra.
There are several more pages to list other aspirations and dreams.

I Wish You Enough...
Another heartfelt mini-album where the author leaves wishes for a loved one.
The front of the album. I didn't have the forethought to change the color of the album till after the pink was glued down. Oh well, Jimmy didn't seem to mind, he's secure enough to have a pink album. ;)
I did however, change it up on the inside pages.
Journaling reads: "I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how grey the day may appear"

"I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting"
There are 4 more pages in this same style.

(Have a great trip, Doris! I'll miss you. Take tons of photos so you'll have something to scrapbook!!)

I was debating whether to take a camera or share Jim's...

I really like this, you're very clever and artistic, good use of colours, inspite of the pink on Jimmy's... well, as long as he doesn't mind a bit of pink here and there.
I just posted a long long story... had fun doing it but it might be a bit time consuming to read, anyway, give it a try.

Really nice...I want an album with old lady sayings so I don't worry about and count my new wrinkles.
A Bazaar and Italy? I'd dump her too.
