CKC Portland!

I can't believe a month has gone by since I posted!  I have started my first Project Life type album.  I decided to start with National Park pictures...we have been to 18 parks and I had never scrapped any of them!  Thought this was the perfect way to dive in to PL!

Another thing keeping me busy is...I'm teaching at CKC Portland!  I am going to be doing a Punky Sprouts mini album on both Friday and Saturday.  Our owner, Shelly, is also teaching.  Her's will be an altered wall hanging.  Here is the info!
