Design Your Life class

I'm managing to keep up with the Design Your Life online class I'm taking over at Big Picture Scrapbooking. Although I've taken a class from Cathy Zielske and read her books, I'm picking up quite a few things here and there from Cathy and the other 1700 students! Of course, the best way to really learn about design is to practice it.

This week's layouts feature asymmetrical design. I will admit that this one took a long time to complete because of the funky photo sizes, but the overall design is obviously a simple one. (I even used hoarded Chatterbox paper!) I cannot take credit for most of the photos...they were taken by our local newspaper and posted online, so of course I snagged them. :-) Since Daughter plays percussion and is positioned at the back of the concert band, I usually only get to see the top of her head. I'm lucky to have the closeup on the left page!

Nice layout...simple and focusing on the photos. Perfect for the subject matter and WTG for getting that photo of your daughter.

Love this! I like the simplicity of a lot of these LOs and that you can get a lot of photos on them. I have yet to do this one! I better get busy! We had a great BC last night and missed you there!
