Dimensional Details

As you may know, I have taken a few classes at Big Picture Classes but usually only one of the bigger classes from their 4Experts series each year. So I missed Nic Howard's Dimensional Details workshop in 2010. Then this year it was being re-run with expanded material but I still passed and took Twelve instead to  help me work on layouts to fill in my Library. So it was to my great surprise to notice as I was linking my July Take Twelve layout to the Ella Publishing blog that I WON the challenge in June (see my winning layout at the bottom). I won a spot in Nic's workshop. The only problem was that the class had already started at the beginning of July. It took a week (very long week) to get everything worked out and placed in the workshop which happened last Wednesday. So I had one day to catch up on 3 weeks of information before the new week 4 material came out Thursday. So here are my first layouts from the workshop based on the week 4 material. I may eventually go back and do some layouts from the material I missed.

I tried sanding the edges of the pictures to get a white border and the middle picture is popped up a little higher then the other two. 

This went together really quick since it's papers are from the same kit as the first layout. They were laying out on my table and worked so I went with it. I added the buttons in last and before hand it just didn't look right.  This is a great design to showcase these random photo shoot photos.

Ten Things

For this 10 things I thought this would be fun.

10  Dr. Seuss Quotes
"Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you."

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.”

"From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere."

"Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened."

"If you never did, you should. These things are fun, and fun is good."

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself, any direction you choose. "

"Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple."

"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."

“Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one."

“How did it get so late so soon? Its night before its afternoon. December is here before its June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?"

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities."

OK, so there are 11. I just couldn't take one out. 
Check out where the 10 Things started at
