shimelle laine's hitchhiker's guide to scrapbooking

Oh, that Shimelle. She is so completely adorable and brilliant on her blog, in the classes she teaches, and in her videos (Glitter Girl is a current fave, and you really should check out last year's 4x6 Photo Love, too!), and if you've ever met her in person you know that she's just as adorable and brilliant in real life, too (especially over pizza, salad, and fried macaroni at California Pizza Kitchen with May Flaum...I really need to get some of those behind the scenes at CHA photos up!).

And if I didn't already love her to bits (in a completely non-creepy way), then her latest class offering has certainly sealed the deal for me. I mean, just get a load of the title...The Hitchhiker's Guide to Scrapbooking: A Guide to Life, The Universe, and Pretty Paper!!!!


Seriously!! This genius girl has taken the concept of my favorite book ever (you may recall me waxing somewhat poetic about it early last year or using the title for my series of posts about Arubaand applied it to scrapbooking!

Here's just a bit about the class, straight from Two Peas:
