Fall Friends & Winter Mishaps

Squished!

Just finished up another class at Photo Scraps. This was actually a make up class for me. I was supposed to teach this one a couple of weeks ago, but the combination of an unexpectedly strong snow/sleet storm and a flat tire while on my way to the class forced a postponement. Although I had a spare  (and plenty of help to change the tire), I didn’t realize that my car has wheel locks and I didn’t have a key.

So I had to call a tow truck – and 6.5 hours later it finally arrived. It was a long day to say the least! But the next day I was back on the road thanks to the service guys at the dealership.

Finally!

So with no further mishaps, we finished up this class for the month. This one was particularly fun because we used the same stencil three different ways. Hopefully this will inspire my students to incorporate stencils into their projects and look towards different ways of using them.

Below are the supplies I’ve used for today’s project. All items were personally purchased except those marked with an asterisk (*) . I never share a product I do not like. Read more.
