Welcome to the CKU Blog Hop!
Piradee Talvanna (Me)
Have you guys heard about the CKU Reunion that will be happening in San Diego, CA this October 27-29th? Get ready for a weekend of creating, connecting, and inspiration. You’ll spend one day completing an album that will be ready for photos when you get home and another day creating in four 90 minute classes including mixed media canvas art, fabric creations, jewellery, and more. Plus, there are evening crops, bonus classes, goodie bags, a commemorative tote, and so much more all for only $295!
And you’ll be learning from some of the industry’s finest such as Lisa Bearnson, Teresa Collins, Stacy Julian, Michelle Hill, Megan Hoeppner, and other inspiring teachers. You know you want to come, so register today so you’ll have plenty of time to pack your supplies for the trip. See you in San Diego!
And here’s what you can look forward to in Megan’s Class:
Album Track: Got Your Number
We've got your number in this incredible 11 page 12" x 12" album class. Join us as we count the ways numbers impact your everyday life. You'll look back on important numeric events in your life, such as memorable milestones (marriage, graduation, etc.), and significant (and playful) quantities (the number of children you have, the amount of times you indulge in your favorite vice every day, etc.). And you'll have a blast personalizing your album with numbers unique to you-your home address, your lucky number, etc. Plus, as you add up the numbers of your life, you'll learn innovative techniques such as coloring with Twinkling H20s, stitching, and misting all while using Pink Paislee's Daily Junque line. Top it off with clever ideas for using unexpected supplies, such as cupcake liners, washi tape, bakers twine, and more, and you've got one fresh album. Whatever your digit, this album is rated a 10.0 for fun and creativity!
And sharing one of my previous Pink Paislee layout, where the number journaling cards were my source of inspiration...
Thanks for stopping by and your next visit is the amazing Laura Vegas!

And honestly, I was suprised that once I had everything spread out everywhere... the same colors schemes can be found in all the collections and can be easy mixed with each other and in no time at all...
... mixing in nightfall flower embellishments, using stickers from both the DayDream (hello) and Garden Cafe (flower) collections and isn't that smile tag from the Garden Cafe collection adorable (I really do need another set)...
