Finding the Inner Me and more

The first 12x12 layout was a Ya Ya challenge where we had to pick a layout from one of the Ya Ya galleries and recreate it. Because I wasn't sure who to chose, I put all 4 names on paper, folded them then shook them up and had a student pull a a name for me. She drew Katies name. I wasnt sure which one I was going to do but, when I saw her fart girl layout, I knew that one was the one. Thanks Katie. It was a challenge and interesting to say the least. lol

Katie's original Fartgirl

My version of Katie's layout.
(thank you to my body double, Charlize Theron)


The other challenges was to create a page kit. We drew names to see who would create a layout using your kit. Rachel drew my name and got my kit which she will hopefully post soon on her blog (along with the layout that I have been asking for months to have a copy of too. ;-) ). When she does I will post it here. We also drew to see who got to keep the completed layout. I drew Tanya's kit and St├ęphanie got to keep it. Here is what I created using Tanya;s kit.


Following the same kit rules, St├ęphanie received this kit from Rachel and she drew her name as to who gets to keep it.


After all was said and done, and although unproductive, NavCan was a great time. The only thing stopping it from being complete was Katie's presence. Unexpectedly, her father-in-law passed away the week before we were to go away so she was unable to attend. Hugs and love to you, my friend. Although not there is body, we know you were there in spirit. xxooxx
