Don't forget to "Fall Back!"

Well, today I taught the class at the store. It was not exactly a hard class, it was basically one where you use the scraps that you already have. I tried to teach them to pull out scraps that they liked, blur their eyes to make sure the papers all work together. Then to choose a background piece of cardstock to help all the colors blend.

Pretty simple, but still a lot of work! We used a ton of punches and I taught them all about visual triangles and ways to use simple shapes. It was fun, and one of the class students was very fun, her layouts came together very fast. The other student was a little slower, but had some great ideas for her page.

In the end I think that I learned a ton of things, I need to make sure the class knows that time is a ticking. I think that I'm also going to work on handouts so that they can have something to go home with. Although they each put together two layouts, so that worked out really well!

In other news, during the Round Up, I managed to finish every one of the challenges! I'm liking that too! I like it when I get a ton of things done, and I'm glad to be able to scrap those dreaded graduation pictures that I've been avoiding.

OK. Now, off to bed. I need to remember to "Fall Back" with the clock in the AM. An extra hour of sleep! NIRVANA!

Hi! I came over from NaBloPoMo. I'm challenging myself to comment on as many blogs as possible this month as well as post.

I've always been afraid to try scrapbooking because I've heard that it's really addictive!

I am probably more excited than I should be about the time change tomorrow morning, too.

Happy Posting!
