Yep, it is Mum again…Kay will be back later tonight. ๐Ÿ™‚

I have a giveaway!

My dear, wonderful friend Kelly Purkey said I could give away a spot in her new online class, Sketches 2. I know the first one was a hit, and here is a bit more about the second…

Sketchbook 2 is a four week class filled with fresh sketches, easy instructions, beautiful examples, and lots of fun.  From August 2nd to August 27th a PDF will be delivered to your inbox every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday so you can work at your own pace.  By the end of the class, you'll have a complete sketchbook of 12 original sketches, 36 layouts, and an additional 36 sketches based on those creative pages. All the examples are brand new layouts, exclusive to this class… you won't see them anywhere else! The best part is that you will be receiving an example layout from me for each of the sketches, along with two example layouts from a member of the incredible Studio Calico design team.  The class will also include a private message board for questions and sharing ideas, as well as two scheduled chats – all on the awesome Studio Calico website. 


If you are interested in winning, just leave me a comment letting me know your best source of inspiration by Monday night and I will pick a lucky winner! (If you win and have already paid/registered for the class, Kelly will refund your payment.) Good luck!

Also, I have some fabulous news. FABULOUS. Dear Kate McRae was the first ill child we ever collected cards for. And after LOTS of praying, Kate's PET scan came back with negative for cancerous activity. Please click HERE to read all about it. SO happy!

More from Kay soon!
