Kit and Clowder

Just an hour or so ago Alyce released her newest colouring tutorial class.  Perfecting Pencils.... I have the entire Spectrum Noir Pencil collection as well as quite a few of the Prismacolour pencils and am eagerly awaiting some technique training.  Well I took the plunge, tapped into my vacation fund as the Aussie Dollar is sitting really low and signed up for the class.! I am currently waiting for my class invite so I can settle down on my couch and begin reading up and starting the class.  This is the one class I am planning to bust my butt and work on in between working, trip packing/planning, and making Buckeyes to take to Florida with me.  I encourage anyone who wants to take their colouring to the next level to hop on over to and sign up for one of Alyce's classes.  I have the clothing class and am enjoying every step of the journey.

Travel journal and smash book.

I have been in Pinterest for the past few days looking for ideas for a way to document the once in a lifetime trip I have coming up in a little over a month.  There are just way too many cute ideas so I decided in a smash book.  Went to Michael's today looking for a kit but all they had where the binders.  Well what the hell... I decided to go for it and figured that between my Scrapbooking stash that rarely gets used, memoriabilia and various other bits and bobbles I could create my own. So tonight I got the bug to start putting pages in it.  I went through my stash of paper and scraps and using a three hole punch and my paper cutter I put together quite a few pages.  Mind you now they are blank.  Just plain card stock but that is the beauty of creativity.  You can do whatever you want.  Now looking at it you will see that I have no colour scheme in mind.  The reason for this is that I am going to Florida. We are planning a wide variety of fun things to do among which  are movies, Universal Studios, black light mini golf, laser tag, and the beach.  So with that in mind I decided in a variety of colours and textures.
The empty undecorated smash book by K&Company.

Some of the pages using scraps of cardstock from my stash.

I also bought a little travel journal so that I can record my memories while I am on vacation.  I will use the pages in my smash book when I return home

My plans are to use my Silhouette digital craft cutter along with pieces of Project Life and a little help from the Rhonna Design App and create a book that I will enjoy looking at for years to come.
