The answer is...Chocolate!!!

Aloha mai, 

Good Friday morning!

I've posted a really easy challenge for you to close out the month over at Secretscrapper.  I hope you get a chance to do this fun little project and maybe some of the others before the end of the month for a chance to win an cool RAK from me and the grand prize album from the site.  

I've added how to links to my projects in the right hand menu bar.  If you ever need instruction for altered projects, please check these out! 

Class with Lance from Rusty Pickle last night was totally awesome.  As you might know, Lance has traveled the world teaching scrapbook classes and is a master in motion!  I learned a lot about what makes a great teacher by watching him last night.  He also shared some tips afterwards that I plan to work on!

I appreciate Lance's down to earth style and genuine kindness.  If you have a chance to take a class from him.  Go-for-it! 

In last night's class, we used the School Daze line of paper for a mini-album.  I love this paper!  I have to admit that when this paper line came out, I didn't really look at the designs closely.  I saw the name of the line, and I skipped it since I don't have many school "theme" photos to srap, but it's not only for school photos at all!  It's a really colorful and very versatile!  Lesson learned (pun intended LOL)! 

Most of the night we focused on building an amazingly creative photo pop up  ball created by Karen Burniston.  You can take a look at the project we did at her site.   I can't wait to finish this album and decorate the ball!

Oh, and the answer to my previous post:  What would you put in a Rusty Pickle Road Trip Survival kit?

The answer is:   


A big Mahalo to Lance and Rusty Pickle for their wonderful inspiration and generosity! 
Check out the Rusty Pickle blog for monthly challenges and Lance's Blog to see where he will be teaching next!  

until next time! 
a hui hou!
