My sister gave this to me Friday evening. It was handmade in Cairo, her friend had just returned, and was kind enough to have it made for me while she was there. She watched them make the beads, and it was handed to me wrapped in an Egyptian newspaper. This is definitely going to be a scrapbook page.
Thanks Hadiyah!

Today I am vowing to post to this blog more frequently. That's my new year's resolution mid year!!

I'm currently enrolled in this great class - Oodles of Doodles. I hesitated taking the class because I wasn't sure it was for me. I can draw. And that's what I do on my layouts, but sometimes I just want the fun of a doodle. So I decided to give it a whirl. GLAD I DID. Michelle is the most awesome teacher, someone who can taking something as inexpensive as markers and paper, and with her knowledge, show us how to add our own art instead of someone else's to our scrapbook pages. Here's a sample of my first assignment.
