The class is wonderful resource for learning how to make a mini album. However, I am sticking with my usual 12x12 format. I do plan to also do some Project Life spreads. Some of the prompts seem to work better for me in list form and I don't feel all of the prompts need a full page layout. I will be using tags from Elle's Studio along with cards from my JBS Mercantile Historian kits for the PL layouts.
I used a sketch from Shimelle.com.

In the islands, the blooming of the Royal Poinciana trees herald the beginning of summer. You can find them throughout the whole island.
While I have taken many photos of these beautiful trees, I have never documented the exact day I noticed their blooms. We woke up on June 1st to find the trees ablaze with orange flowers!
The weekend is here and I have more stories to tell. I'll be spending more time taking the classes I signed up for at BPC, the Art Studio and Get It Scrapped. Stay tuned for more Stories of Summer. Meanwhile, I hope you have a pleasant weekend!
