FINALLY! 52-Card Pick Up is Done!

It has been some time since I've updated my blog. That's one of the perils of being a teacher. When summer ends and school begins, our laid-back life as we know it comes to a screeching halt. Then everything becomes about lesson planning, test scores, NCLB, classroom management all while trying to find some balance in your live so that you can continue to do those things that you love that bring you joy. I am trying to catch up.

Back in June , I posted about a class I was talking over at Big Picture Scrapbooking called 52 Card Pick-Up. You can find the original post here. The class ended August 11th, but I didn't finish until about two weeks later (ahhhh...the joys of online learning).

I wanted to share the before and after pictures of my little card deck. Over the next few days, I will share some more of the cool techniques I learned while taking the class.

Here is the BEFORE picture, my card deck created at the beginning of class (please ignore the "watch cat!"):

And here is the FINISHED product...2 1/2 months and 52 techniques later.

Thanks for looking and stay tuned for more cool techniques!
