5 on Friday and Classes

I missed a few days of the LOAD Challenges but I'm still plugging away and I've printed off the missed challenges to do them, hopefully, this weekend.  I did take just 40 minutes, yep 40 which for me is pretty good, to do the layout below.  That includes picking the papers and photos.  All I can say for myself is, wow!  It does need a title in the upper left, but otherwise it's done.  Day 10's challenge was using a sketch, and we all know how great those are.  This layout also includes a first for me - I sewed on it! Granted it was only stitching on the buttons, but it's sewing.

I'm also taking "Embracing Imperfection" over at Big Picture Classes.  The FREE class started yesterday. She has some great advice so far that I think in one way or another encompasses almost every scrapbooker. 

I'm clicking away on my goal of making more me time, this week I'm finding it in scrapbooking with help from the LOAD class and the BPC.  To make sure you get some "you" time during the weekend, here's today's 5 on Friday:
  • 2 sheets cardstock
  • 1 set of round embellishments
  • 1 set of chipboard
  • 1 sheet of stickers
  • 1 set of fabric/felt embellishments
Remember outside of journaling and a title, no other items can be used in this layout.  Upload it by Sunday evening.

We are in round two of City Tournaments, and my son's team who were in a do-or-die situation (it was two losses and out) won last night; he'll play again on Saturday morning.  Son #2 will also play in the afternoon on Saturday.  So that along with the whole shipping extravaganza make up my weekend plans.  Well, and getting caught up on LOAD.  Oh and maybe tackling more of my studio.

Hope your Friday is fantastic!
