I spent my day in the company of many lovely crafty ladies at Right At Home Scrapbooking. I managed to rope my SIL Suzy into taking a class with me – thanks for coming along Suzy! We inked, painted, stenciled and stamped all day making a journal with pockets. Conveniently this is going to add to my Calvinball points. We even made our own washi-type tape using masking tape! It was pretty awesome.


That’s tape! One of the best parts of the day was playing with all of Jule’s awesome stencils.¬† Here’s the book we made:
