ABC's of Me - 'R'

Today was my day to post a challenge at Scrapbook Challenges! The prompt is 'Remember when...' and I'm asking that you include yourself in the phone and use the word 'remember' somewhere on the layout.
I realize that this picture is pretty horrible, but I was in a rush! haha Hopefully I can get around to taking a better one soon. I'd hate to document this and bright and washed out!

I'm no longer designing for Creative Inspirations, but I'm still using those paints like crazy. I used garnet and copper on the background of this page. And I'm pretty excited about these chipboard letters. They are old Heidi Grace and they come in a gigantic package. I found them at Big Lots for $4. Can't beat that!

I decorated my first cake!

I've always wanted to take the Wilton cake decorating courses. I finally decided to when we got here to Texas because I don't know anyone here... and I don't really have the chance to meet anyone either. I mean, we're only here for 3 months, so it's not a big deal. I just need to get out of the house. Sooo cake decorating class it is!

I am currently taking Cake Decorating Basics, and this is my first cake that I decorated!
We learned how to do a transfer and pressure techniques. I'm really excited about next week though! We finally start learning how to make a few flowers and we ice cupcakes! I will say... I'm HORRIBLE at icing cakes... well, at least I was before this class. Hopefully that will change! :)

I've always wanted

Thank you Pamela!! *SC Blog Hop*

Welcome to Scrapbook Challenges' Thank You Pamela blog hop! Thank you Pamela for all that you've done for us and for inspiring us for so long! If you just happened to stop by and didn't realize there was a hop, you can join the fun at Brynn's blog.

I'm Dani, and I've been around at SC for quite a while. I've really enjoyed my time there and Pamela will be missed greatly! Also, thanks to Brynn for carrying on Scrapbook Challenges!

I picked Sketch 169 for my layout.

My take (this is the first 8x8 layout that I've done in a LONG time):

There are lots of great RAKs up for grabs this weekend from Fancy Pants and Tim Holtz and more!

Now hop on over to Deb's blog to continue the hop!
