I'm officially starting to share my Atlanta album. I've been slowly working on this since the start of March and am about halfway done. I've been waiting to be home and remember to start photographing it while I had good natural light. I should be able to have a little more scrappy time now that grad class is over for the semester.

Over the weekend I had the opportunity to visit Scrapbook Expo in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We left at 6am and headed down to Milwaukee. It was a great trip and we barely had any traffic. We took two different class.
The first class was put on by Spellbinders and Fun Stampers Journey. Richard taught the class and he did a fantastic job. We did an altered art journal, I plan to do some mixed media techniques in it. He had a new line coming out this summer and I am super excited!
|This was our book starting out|
|First layer of paint|
|Second layer of paint on and die cutting started. We used the Grand Calibur Cutter with the Spellbinders Dies|
|Third layer of paint and die cutting a second paper|
|Sanded the first layer of paint to add in the gold paint, and we painted our die cutted center|
|The final product at home after we glued it all together and glazed it!|
|Class two-Disney tag album. It moved much faster so I didn't get many pics.|
|Ending the day at Cheesecake Factory. My first visit had to be finished with cheesecake!|
|I got two pins for the day! Thankfully I didn't qualify for the shopping pin|
All my purchases at home!

One of my favorite things about the suberb I live in is how they decorate for Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, and Labor Day. One of the main roads has flags for miles, and they are nothing but beautiful and patriotic blowing in the wind.
I quickly decided I like using my wet finger over the brush to spread the gelatos around. Since then I've learned that baby wipes work as well.
I used my faovrite silver twine on the top, and silver Perfect Pearls around the rest of the page. This is one thing that just makes you smile as you drive down the road.
