some digi stuff

Here are layouts for week two and three of my advanced digital scrapbooking class. I can't even begin to tell you how much fun this is, and how much I am learning. Just wish I had more time! I haven't been able to complete the mid week assignments, only the main assignments. Click on the pictures to enlarge them. And don't forget to leave me a comment and tell me what you think! ;)
