So Happy Together

So the first class I took at the Scrapbook and Papercraft Expo over the weekend was titled On This Day and the tutor was Angella Peardon. The class was sponsored by Scrapmatts and yes, I still love taking their classes ever after having been on their design team for 1.5 years. You always get to play with new release chipboard, the instructions are very easy to follow and the project is specifically created to be completed during the class.
One of the features of this LO was the tag we created. It was optional as to whether it was included in the layout or not but I liked the look of it so it's stuck down now. I didn't make too many changes to this layout as I really liked the way it all came together. Only things I added at home was some red ink to the chipboard hearts, the alpha stickers to the tag and glued down the arrow charm which came in the kit anyway.

Here you can see Angella and I with the layout as created in class. Angella is only around 145cm tall and I'm 176cm so I've had to lead down quite a way for this photo! :) Unfortunately, Angella has decided to step away from the Scrapmatts team to focus on some other projects she's working on. I'm looking forward to seeing what else she's been cooking up in the background.
Lastly, this is a quick snap of part of Angella's tutor display at the Expo. There's a reason when she's known as the Off-The-Page queen! :)
This layout also fulfils the criteria for the current challenge over at Challenge YOUrself, which is to include the men in your life.
