My first class

I had such a good time at our mega crop, you can see more about it on our crop blog here.
I taught a class for the first time ever, I was so nervous, I have no idea why as the ladies at my crop are amazing and love them all to bits so I had no reason to be nervous. I just hope that they got something from it.

I called the class, “A simple layout, Infinite possibilities”. The reason for the title is the concept behind the class. I have only taken a few classes myself, other than Cyber crop classes. The reason that I have not done many, is that I often get a little disgruntled that although I have come away with great knowledge and a stunning layout, most of the time, I often have something that is not my taste or even my colour choice. The layouts are often gorgeous but they don’t feel like me.

So I put this class together to show how a simple recipe of fun techniques, pictures and embellishments can allow us to have fun doing a class but still come away feeling like we didn’t have to totally compromise our taste along the way. Obviously anyone who teaches a class has to call upon there own style but there is no reason why your own taste can't be captured too. These were my example lo's for the class.

Here was my class hard at work, I had such a great time, thanks ladies you were brilliant.

LOL @ Helen!It really was a fab class and I thought you were great in 'teacher' mode, very stern with the reluctant paper tearers!
