CKC Houston - Great Show!!!

Here's a Digital layout I had fun with. It challenged me with all the differnt layers, elements and effects. The basic template is from thedigitalscrapbookteacher, most papers are from Scrap Girls Refresh kits and elements from Persnickety Prints. Very fun layout.

I attended Creating Keepsakes Convention - Houston in Woodlands, Texas the weekend of June 15 and had such a marvelous time. After talking with my cousin, Stephanie, I decided to sign up for digital scrapbooking classes. I wanted to learn some Photoshop Element tricks so I took TheDigitalScrapbookTeacher classes by Patty Debowski. Boy, was I in for a treat. I have been using PSE for years doing graphic design work but Patty showed me so much more and showed me ways to make my scrapbooking much more intricate. She made PSE easy to understand for the novice as well as the experienced. After taking 2 classes, I signed up for a third class and got several projects completed. The freebies you receive from Patty alone make taking the course worth it. It pays for itself not to take away from the knowledge you gain. Patty will not be teaching at shows after this year but if you can take one of her classes in California or online, I recommend you do. Also her templates are wonderful.  Here's a layout I did with one of her templates. I recommend you check out her book as well.

I worked the crops 2 nights and in 2 classrooms at the convention and had so much fun. The CKC crew is an awesome group and I enjoy working with them when they come to town. The gifts and freebies they give to volunteers are appreciated but I would do it just for fun. They always need volunteers. Sign up for a show that is near you. You will not regret it.

Happy Scrapping and Stamping,
