Donna Downey Class ;)

On Father's day weekend I was lucky enough to be able to take two classes with Donna Downey.  Four of us went to The Village, FL to She Scrapbooks for the classes with Donna. It was lots of fun!  Donna is a great teacher and motivator.  She's has a great personality and is very funny.  I truly enjoyed it.

Donna showing some pages in the album we were working on.
She's such a hoot!!! I could sit and listen to her chatter all day!

Below are my crafty friends, from left to right : Cheryl B, Paula B (the ower of our local Scrapbook Store - A Scrapbook Store & More) and Susan G

Cheryl and I waiting out the rain.
Susan in deep concentration trying to figure out how to add
those little ringy things :) Guess who helped her?   :)
Donna demonstrating the painting of the canvas with Cheryl. By the end of the class I was totally sick of that Magenta Pink Color!!!  I love the album but I had enough. Or, like Donna said "I hit my wall".  I did learn one important lesson.  Water is my friend.  I bought a new big spray bottle when I got home.  Needless to say at the class I had this tiny little one that kept running out. Adding water to the paint and canvas is great!
Here's one completed album.  The other is a big beautiful pink one that I need to finish and add photos so I will share that later.


  1. Oh take the best classes Jackie. I'd love to take one of Donna's classes. Looks like you guys are having fun. Love your album. :)

  2. That's awesome Jackie. Your album came out great!

  3. Jackie thanks for the help with the little ringie things. Never would have managed that without your assistance. I'll be over next time I need to ring another. Love the pictures. We did have fun. BTW, I've got an album that looks just like yours. I think we need to get some pictures in them for personalization.

  4. jackie you are so pretty. and what a great mini
