Don't Worry - BE HAPPY

The fabulously talented Karen Cole is teaching a 12 x 12 layout this month and is using the new My Mind's Eye BE HAPPY range.

A little sample of the papers she is going to use

Plus some other little bits of gorgeousness that Karen has worked her magic with.  Will be back with photo requirements soon.

Back to Back

Well the intrepid EK ladies braved the snow that was forecast and traveled from far and near for another, albeit a little chilly, EK crop.

 It was so lovely to see Denise (for reasons explained here).

This month, it was my turn to teach and we made a back to back book with photos of our favourite (not favorite as is on the title card) things.

The book had several interactive features and was an easy project to make and to teach, in fact I was able to get on and make a layout

whilst the ladies got on with their mini albums.
So here is the book page by page (apologies in advance for the many, many photos)!

Now it's  another 4 weeks until the next crop and I can't wait!

Take Care
