My first layout

Heya! Today I woke up in the middle of the night because I was caughing so hard and because my throat hurt very much. Then I realized that even that little bit of voice I still had yesterday was gone now. Eeeeek! Disaster!!! I barely had any energy and was more or less like a zombie today. A quiet zombie, I should add. I've been drinking lots and lots of tea today and hopefully things will start getting better. *fingers crossed* I'm just relieved that this didn't happen yesterday. I mean, even yesterday I didn't feel perfect and I did have a sore throat, but at least I had some voice and a bit more energy than I do today.

Yesterday I was at the art class with Anna Dabrowska (aka Finnabair). It was AWESOME! I learned a lot of stuff and had fun in the process. Anna is very nice and very down to earth person and she's full of great ideas and tips. I hope she will find a way to this little country again in the future because I want to go to some more classes. :)

At the class I was attending we were making a layout. It's my firs "real" layout and I loved every single minute of making it. Will definitely be making more. :) Here you can see it ...

I used a very old photo of me for this page. Then I embellished the layout with the stuff that were part of the kit we received at the class. More or less everything is from Prima. :) 

As you can see I used lots of metal embellishments, but also pieces of lace and some flowers. 

And another photo. :)

I fell in love with stenciling (I think it gives an amazing effect) and with buttons. Yes, you heard right, buttons. :D I realized hey can be very handy for decorating layouts, maybe even cards. Will definitely be using more of those.

Have a wonderful day! xx
