BIG Summer fun [and a give-away!]

I believe this is the fourth summer that I’ve been asked to participate with Big Picture’s annual summer FREE class that they offer. I’m excited – this is another super fun idea and I can’t wait to see it in action.

Big Idea Festival 2011
Words to Live By

You are invited to a FREE festival packed full of big ideas at Big Picture Classes this August! Join us for 12 fun-filled days starting Monday August 15, featuring 12 of our talented instructors. Each instructor will be giving you a word of the day, which we hope will inspire you, along with a downloadable template (in both printable and digital format) so that you can create a mini layout about that day’s word and how you applied it in your life. Finally, each teacher will leave you with an inspirational video message and a preview of the page they created with their word.

The great part? You don’t HAVE to use the template or do things the way anyone else did. You can just have fun with it and play. Use your stash, just take a peek and be inspired – whatever! It’s free and it’s just for you. LOVE that BPC does this every year.

What’s even better? They’ve told me I can give away one of the exclusive kits here on my blog! The kit that they’ve done up is something just for fun – in no way is it required to join in the class fun. But look at those lovely goodies!!

  1. I received my kit on Friday and am so happy that I decided to purchase it this year. Last year was my first year of inspiration and fun with Big Idea Festival.
