Yesterday I mentioned that I was going to a class at The Paperie given by Rae Lynn. She does the most amazing Clean and Simple LO’s – not my forte at all – so whenever she gives a class, I try to be there. It’s always good to learn about something that’s not your strong point!

I went really prepared last night too – had my pics printed and everything! The meant I came home with two completed LO’s, no more work needed, yay!

Here’s the first one, pics of my boy:

Love that photograph tag – we cut it to pieces and used it all over the place!

And the LO of my baby (yes, she’s the oldest but she promised that she would *always* be my baby!):

Love the B&W pic on this one – it’s one of the first pictures I took when I got D’s old camera and it’s one of my all times faves of her. I did change this up a bit – in the class all those pinky elements were bare wood which looked amazing, just not quite right for a little girl! We received a Jenni Bowlin for Ranger paint dabber (and ink pad) in the class so I used that to paint all the wood. Love how it came out.

Thanks, Rae Lynn, for another fabulous class! When’s the next one? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Finally, my October Afternoon challenge LO which was to use a Dr. Seuss quote. This is the one I did at The Paperie crop Friday night:

It’s fine, I added the stitching when I came home, but it’s not what I wanted. I left it for a couple of days, and this is what I ended up doing to it:

More dimension, some bling and glitter:

Some Distress Stain, and a rolled flower to break up the buttons:

A misted canvas heart:

Now it’s a bit more interesting!

This week they showed a technique involving string and mist – going to have to give that one a try too!

Happy hump day, we’re getting closer to Friday!
