A Humble Post About Me

Hi All!! I've been MIA for awhile. I guess I didn't feel like there was anything to blog about.
I watched the movie Julie & Julia and there was a line in that movie that made me think twice about blogging. Julie said something to the affect that blogging is all about "me me me" and it kinda weirded me out. I am an outgoing gal and all but I hate to admit things are always about me me me.... I wonder if any of my friends or family disagree with that. Chime in friends and family.
I realized that, yeah, a blog is a place to toot your own horn and all. I'm just hoping to do it in a humble way I guess.
With that said, I would like to toot about a class I'm taking over at Studio Calico called Pop Off The Page. It's all about layering on you projects. I love Rahel Menig's style and Marcy Penner's style and have always wanted to try layering but I guess I was scared to fail. This class kicked my but into gear and here's what I came up with. A layout full of layers about My Boys.

I mostly used paper from a pack my friend Michelle gave me. I don't even know what brand it is cuz the cover was not with it when I got it. i totally lifted Jen Jockisch's page form the class. I was a learning experience for me for sure.
Here is a few close ups of all the layers. I used some tissue paper, one of the glassine envelopes form the class kit, and some tags from the kit as well. I used my Cricut for the tittle on the tag.

The This Week journal spot and button is from the kit as well. Splattered a little Mr. Huey's and threw some washi tape down.

All in all I like how it turned out and can not wait to try again!!! Just wish I could get to scrappin more often!!!
Thanx for stoppin by and have a great day!!!!
