Close to My Heart this year gave all consultant's attending Convention homework.....sounds odd doesn't it? Homework at this stage of my life, what the heck. They are conducting a business/training class at Convention this year on Studio J (their form of online scrapbooking). Now, I'm usually not a scrapbooker......why you ask? Well lets see.....I have no children, but I do have 2 dogs, and every picture I take of my husband, he has his hand in the camera, well that could be a fun page. So what do I scrap about?
When corp asked for us to do 5 layouts as our homework on Studio J, I was stumped.....ok, I can follow the directions and copy their sample layouts to the T, but whats the fun in that, not very personal if you ask me.....so I started thinking.....I text and emailed some of my friends and family and asked for pictures of their children......and I thought what a nice Christmas present those could be for my loved ones.
Each day for the next 5 days I will post my Studio J creations and explain the techniques used. Did you know you can try Studio J for FREE if you click here? Give it a whirl, you'll love it.....I did to.....it was so fun seeing my friends and family come to life in the layouts.
