New Pocket Prompt Class at Big Picture Classes!

Main-4-BPC Main-3-BPC main-1-BPC PROMO-2I warned you guys there were some fun things in the works behind the scenes!! I have a new class out with Big Picture Classes today! 

I’m teaching June’s Pocket Prompt class where we are creating a spread centered around my favorite element: water! 

In the class we will: 

  • Create a themed spread all about your adventures in the water
  • Share tips for safeguarding your phone in the water
  • 5 new photography challenges for capturing your next beach, lake, or pool adventure
  • 5 journaling challenges to stretch your current journaling to be more thorough and indulgent
  • Make a spread using a “color story”
  • Tips for including journaling when you don’t love your handwriting

Summer time for me is all about seeking the water every chance I get and I know the same is true for you guys when that summer heat hits. So join me and we will walk together from the very beginning, taking the photos, to building a complete spread.

Don’t forget! You can do a FREE 2 week trial with Big Picture Classes and try out their amazing library of classes, including mine! 

PS if you are heading out for vacation, while you’re already taking my Pocket Prompt Class, check out my other class Mini On The Go and make a full mini book while you’re travelling!

Around Here

Hi friends! Sorry for the radio silence this week, but know that my instagram is ALWAYS active as I am beyond in love with those little squares and you can always find me @laurenlikesblog. But since I have left you hanging, I thought an around here post would be the best way to catch you up because silence here means a bunch of crazy stuff is going on EVERYwhere else!IMG_7301

Around here we are wrapping up the end of the school day with lots of fun, a flurry of activities and too many sad goodbyes. But the best thing we have done by far is field day!!

Around here it is the last week to purchase postcards as I am retiring them when I leave for summer travelling. So grab them if you want them!

Around here I am planning, planning, planning! Of course I’m using these travel printables, to get everything down for our Croatia roadtrip! WOO HOOO! Give me some coastline + cobble stone please and thank you.

Around here it is concert season, non stop.

Around here I am tired. Seriously guys. Sleep ya later.

Mum I love you

Paislee-MOM-layoutbyhooperHappy birthday to my wonderful and amazing mom and mother in law! Yep, you read that right, birthday, both of them. We are so lucky to have such awesome moms and the whole world is so lucky to be able to honor their moms in scrapbook pages using Liz’s Dear Mom templates from Paislee Press.

This was my first page I made using the Fuse Tool and let’s just say…Im glad this page is still in one solid piece. There is quite the learning curve with those, but I love all the possibilities that come with this tool and that is keeping me trying.

Happy birthday to the lady who gave me a scrapbooking addiction. I love you tons and tons.
