something from almost nothing - giveaway!!

have y'all heard about shimelle's fabulous new class, "something from almost nothing"?

in shimelle's words -

"Throughout this class we’ll be focusing on getting more from the stash we have already acquired, no matter what your personal product of choice may be. We’ll go through a range of products you already have on hand and put them to use in new ways. We’ll step away from just gluing or stitching on a button and build something new. Plus it’s not just buttons we’ll be moving from stash to completed pages; we’ll also put stickers, ribbons, transparencies, papers, page protectors, chipboard and other supplies to work too. You won’t need to have specific supplies to follow along: we’ll focus on what you do have and offer plenty of alternatives along the way.

During the three weeks of class prompts, you’re invited to follow along and build an album entitled Celebrate Life. You can create this book in any page size you like with supplies you have on hand, and each prompt includes a page sketch and technique to help build the page as well as photography and journaling pointers to help with the complete album. But the class doesn’t end with just this album: each prompt includes a range of other techniques to try and projects to make. You can take inspiration from these at any time, just like a book or magazine."

you can read more about the class (like what you'll be getting as part of the class, or sneaks of some of the projects) or sign up head right over here!

anyways, shimelle asked 'lil old me if i wanted to contribute a layout to her class, and i said yes of course! here's a little sneaky peakie of my project...

she also gave me one spot to give away here :) to enter, leave a comment about something that's been inspiring you lately. i'm looking for some things to get me going creatively :) i'll leave comments open until tuesday afternoon until about 2pm PST, and draw a winner soon after that!
