All right, so today, well, if you've been with me the last two days, we did the basic step on the first day today we're really going to get into it, so I'm going to go ahead and show you what we're going to cover today so that you can visually see what's going on the first little segment we're gonna be talking about papers again because I think a lot of digital scrapbook ear's really, really like and enjoy making their own papers and backgrounds and such. So we're going to be doing that for the first part and then we're going to talk about text and kind of get into the text a little bit more and doing some reverse outs and then this after break I think we're going to go on in and go on and doing a postcard ah lot of people like to do their own invitations. So we're going to do in this ice cream party postcard with the cluster, and we're going to be creating a layout with a digital scrapbook hit. So we'll be doing that, and the final thing that we're gonna be doing. A couple of two, two things that we might be doing is we're gonna be doing a sports collage. So that's, always pretty popular amongst scrappers as well. So those are the visuals that we'll be working on today and it's going to be more the intermediate level, little bit advanced stuff. So hopefully you are with me the day one or two in a few word. Go ahead and purchase the class, and then you can get all the way up to the intermediate level.
