Lessons in Mad Clustering Skills

Once upon a time I admired Karen's Mad Clustering Skills and wished that I was able to attend one of Karen's scrapbooking classes that she teaches at her crops each month. For my birthday, Karen made my wish come true by mailing me an entire class kit and instructions!  Usually when I have a class kit, I spend a lot of time and effort "making it my own" ... but Karen's legendary clustering skills honestly had me just a bit intimidated (I can do this in digi, but for some reason it doesn't translate for me when using actual 3D paper products!)... so I followed the instructions VERY closely...

 This is leaps and bounds from my typical paper style. If you compare to Karen's layout at the link above, you'll see I really stuck with the game plan for the most part. I'm thrilled to pieces with the finished product! Thank you so much Karen for the class in the mail! LOVED IT!!!
