One of the first assignments from Cathy Z's "Design Your Life" class. Cathy said we would need to work out of our comfort zone, and this first assignment has me there already. I tend to add too many embellishments, so I thought I'd restrain myself this time to let the photos take center stage. I like the results ... though I still think something could go in the upper right or left corners. ;-)

Thank you for looking.

Journaling: "Aunt Jennifer and Uncle Paul are such fun! They sent you this fabulous pre-Christmas present just because they thought you would like it. And you did! The best part, besides eating the gingerbread afterwards, was using icing as glue.
YUM! "
