Awesome Class!!!

went to the decoupage class at scrappy chic yesterday!! it was a blast...I still have alot of family drama going on...so it was a needed escape..and I've always said that scrapbooking is really the only thing...I can do..and completely forget about crap going on in my life!! no wonder I scrap so much......but it was fun to paint, and tear...draw....here is my canvas..after painting it...and there is miss kathy working hard in the background...... Erin is such a great teacher, she gets you going but encourages you to make your project your own...and it's kinda scary to paint, and freehand draw...but before you know it you're doing it....and I hope she teaches more classes like this...seriously a fun class..
love that we all had different canvas's by the end of class..different colors, and trees..and some people added birds...some added hearts...yep..we rocked!! hee,hee...
and I was so excited to see Kathy and Carla....some of my original...peeps.....who I haven't got to see in awhile...just because we are all so busy living our lives...but seeing them made me realize we need to get together more often!!! even got a drop in visit...from Heather....
and last night I had to add a couple layers of the decoupage stuff..and then outline my trees...and I ended up using newspaper clippings from Ed's obit...I just tore them up...so as you look in the tree...you can catch bit's and pieces...and even added his pic...so the tree on the right is my hubby tree...and the tree on the left has my newspaper article in it...so it kind of added a personal touch to the trees...and I love how it turned out...and am going to hang it in my bedroom....
Okay..I am supposed to meet up with some of my people from my Great lakes weight and wellness at the gym....today!!! So hoping for a good workout......'cause you know what tomorrow is?? weigh in....
