Some Exciting News!!

Before I announce my exciting news, I thought I would share pics of my two from the 4th. Like Kyle's "ccol" pose? Ya know he is 11 going on 16!
Cort had a great time in Michigan boat riding, tubing, and watching the fireworks! Her cheeks were a little red from too much sun! (Bad mommy!)

Ok, now for my exciting news.....I am the newest member of Erika Martin's DT for her on-line journaling class. You may have noticed the button in the top right hand corner? I have been really trying to get back to why I started scrapping 13 years tell my story and pass down a legacy to my children. Journaling is such a big part of that! Here is what the on-line course is all about in Erika's words:

"One of the things that I hear most often about my scrapbook layouts is that people connect with the journaling. They feel that, even if they don't know me, they can connect with me and feel like they know me simply by reading the journaling that I've included on my layouts. They feel like they understand the story I'm trying to tell by reading my journaling.
The next thing that I hear most often is that journaling is really hard for most people to include on their layouts. There are many reasons that people don't include journaling on their layouts.

They feel like they don't have anything to say.
They don't know where to start.
They feel like they're not a writer.
They hate their own handwriting.Do any of these sound familiar to you? Do you feel this way?The truth is, there's a writer in all of us. Our photos have stories to tell. Some people just need a little help to bring that writer out to tell the story.
"The Stampin' Mama Journaling 101 Online Scrapbook Course" is tailored for people just like you!
"A picture is worth a thousand words." We all know the saying......but do we put the words with our pictures? If you're putting your pictures in scrapbook albums but aren't telling the stories that go with them, you're missing the other half of the photos.....the words that tell the story!
If you're looking to create artistic and creative albums and want to tell the stories but need some help to get started, then I know you'll enjoy the upcoming 12 week course that I've created."

If you are interested in learning to tell YOUR story, sign up for this amazing class! IT is filling quickly!

Have a great Thursday!!!
