    Anna this was a great class. I began scrapping our family history a little over 10 years ago and had the idea to photograph memorabilia to incorporate into my pages. I was pleased with the outcome, but your knowledge and insights will improve my skills considerably, both photographically and artistically. The video was packed with great ideas and simple, but effective, techniques for creating layouts quickly and confidently. After I finished the video and reviewed my notes, I was surprised at how much I learned and so happy that I took advantage of it!
