Class Is In Session

So on a whim I decided to sign up for the Ali Edwards: Hello Story class over at Big Picture Classes. I had been hearing amazing reviews about her previous classes and this one was looking to be the same. Armed with my coupon code I took the plunge! We are only into week one of the class and the amount of material, examples, and information provided is AMAZING! To be honest it is a little overwhelming all the content you receive. I am excited to see what will come in these next 12 weeks. 

The story/idea for this week is timelines. I had no idea there were so many variations on a timeline. One of the inspiration pieces that was shown was a Save The Date announcement. I really loved the overall idea & construction of it so I decided to go with the flow! I had a collection of 7 photos of Brian and I (one from each year we have been married) that I wanted to work with and put on my timeline.

My Timeline:

I used my Citrus Twist July kit for this layout. I added in some black thickers from my stash, those ever addicting My Minds Eye enamel dots, October Afternoon label stickers, and some Studio Calico wood veneers. Oh I can't forget the really cute white heart paper clip from Freckled Fawn and I even used an Ali Edwards Technique Tuesday stamp! 

I am happy with how it turned out. It is way out of my comfort & normal zone but that is okay. I know 25+ years down the road I will be glad to have this and see how much we have changed over the years and what we went through in our "early" years. 

Once again thank you for stopping by and make sure to swing back by on Friday. I will be helping Scrapbooksteals celebrate their 4th birthday and be a part of their blog hop.


  1. I love this so much! What a great way to remember how much happened during those years.

  2. great layout, love how you applied your inspiration to your photos!

  3. ack! this is awesome! I am also taking the class and can't wait to be able to sit down and work on my layout.
