New Stuff

Well, since I could not sleep today I headed to my room and worked on some challenges. Here are a few of the things that I finished.

I have been busy so far this summer working on some of the summer camp challenges over at Coordinates Collections. Here are two layouts I did for this weeks challenges. This one was a 2 page sketch challenge.

This layout was for the S'more challenge, Had to have one patterned paper, two pictures and lots of buttons.

This sweet little layout I did for a BoBunny color yellow challenge. I used almost all Bobunny products for this challenge.

Here is a list of products used:
Brown background paper - BoBunny "Fall festival Cocoa"
Yellow and white flower patterned paper - BoBunny " Back to Back's"
Orange and yellow dots patterned paper - BoBunny "Shabby Princess"
All flowers - Bo Bunny "Grease Monkey"
All ribbon - BoBunny "Bella Journee"
6 brown dew drops
Colorbox "Chestnut Roan" Chalk ink pad for distressing some edges
Singo Uniball "White" journaling pen for doodling and journaling

I made this card for the Farm Fresh Friday challenge over at Greeting Farms. I used my friend's Tina's Surfing Ian stamp and colored the image in with my copics. I plan on making a few more of these of my son's swim party later this summer.

Here is a layout that my oldest daughter did for the Kids can Scrap challenge for this month. The challenge was seeing double so there had to be two of everything that you used, ie two cardstaocks, two pictures, two ribbons, and two word title.

This one for for the challenge of "sun is shining" it had to have yellow and use a Unity stamp.

This one is for the challenge of 'Whats new at Unity" it had to have a new stamp from Unity. This one was easier for me since I jsut became hooked on Unity Stamps and Got my order the other day.

But I did play with hers the other night and just loved them. They stamp so easy and the images are really cool. I actually order something yesterday and was having problems with the check out.

My New Scrap Room

Here is my new scrap room. Eleanore and Jessica wanted to share a room so I was happy to assist them in that move. I told them that if they shared a room that it was going to be for a very long time because I was going to make the other bedroom into my scrappin room. I have been working on it since Monday and finally got all the shelves and stuff moved from downstairs to it's new home upstairs. Here are the photos that I took tonight after I finished organizing all my stuff. It is hard to believe that I had all this stuff (except for the two long tables and the shelving)in a small area of my bedroom downstairs.

Just in case you did not know what my old scrappin area looked like here are a few photos of the old area, which was located in my bedroom.


This is the view from the doorway, looking into the room. And yes that is a dresser. I had to leave Jessica's dresser and clothes in the room because the other room did not have any space for them. That is alright with me because the dresser works great for a TV stand.

As you walk into my room on the left you will find my main scrappin area. This area include my scrappin table and wall of scissors/ribbons. Under this table to the right of the chair is a rolling cart that has kits inside. There is also a bin on the ground that has my thickners inside and they are arranged by color. The shelves above the table are where my flowers and some of my other embellies.

To the right side of my table is the area where my papers are located. To the right of my paper racks is the TV and my stickers are to the right of the TV. The shelves above the paper racks is the chipboard area and my books.

On the next wall you will find my computer area for the laptop and my cricut expression. My cuttlebug and other diecut stuff is also located here. This area is also right behind me as I am sitting at my table. Next, the computer table is a small bookcase that contains paper slabs and other sizes of card stock. On top of the bookcase is one 3-drawer container that houses sticker/rub on letters and words. There is also another 3-drawer container that houses my clear stamps.

This is the area for my stamping stuff. This area is where my glitter, embossing stuff, paints, stickles, rubber stamps, ink pads, copics, markers and color pencils can be found. The two bottom shelves are my rubber stamps. Under this table lives a small kids table and two chairs that can be moved out to allow my kids to scrap, if they wish, while I scrap. You can not really see it in the photo but right next to this table is a black stand that houses my punches, ribbons not on a roll, and papers. On top of this black stand is where my scrap bin lives. To the right of this stand is the door to my room.

I hope that you enjoyed this tour of my new scrap room. Please leave me comments and/or suggestions. I would also, like to thank George, my husband, for his help of hanging the shelving and for him not complaining about me having all this stuff. I want to also thank my three kids for helping move the stuff up the stairs to it new home. I special thank you to Eleanore, my oldest daughter 10 yrs, for all her hard work. Eleanore helped my move the paper racks and kept going to get move stuff without ever complains. Of course I owe her something special for all that hard work.

Sunshine and Silver

Here are some pictures of the two new kittens that we got Monday. Sunshine is Jessica's kitten and Silver is Eleanore's kitten. Andy has Cuddles (1year cat) that seems to like growling and hissing at the kittens instead of playing.

This is a photo of Sunshine:

This is a photo of Silver:

Here is a picture of Silver cleaning Sunshine's back while she was sleeping. Just too cute.

Guess what is new with me????

First, we got two new kittens. The other cat (cuddles), about 1 year old, does not like the kittens. All she did all day was hiss and growl at the kittens and everyone else. I got cuddles so calming medicine at the pet store and that seem to calm her down. But the best news is that I am getting a scrap room. My girls want to share a room so I was happy to do that for them. Because that meant my getting the other bedroom for a scrapbooking room. I worked all day today upstairs moving the little one out of the one room and into the other and on the scraproom. Eleanore was so helpful she actually brought me all of my scrappin supplies upstairs. She helped me carry my two large paper racks upstairs too. I guess I owe her a little something this week. I will post photos soon of the new room and other kittens.

School is out tommorrow

Wow, where does all the time go? It seem like time is going by quicker and quicker everyday. I guess that is what happens when we have kids and they have friends and are involved with scouts and sports. Anyways, school get out here tomorrow around noon. The kids (yes all three) will be home most of the summer. The oldest two have a camp planned, while little one goes over to Nanas, and mommy to a scrapbooking retreat in June. My hubby has to go out of town with the kids in July and me and the kids have a vacation planned for than. My son gets to go to the Grand Canyon with his Aunt and Uncle for a week. So I do not know how much scrappin I will be getting done over the summer, but I am sure I will have tons of picture to scrap this fall. I hope that everyone is having a wonderful and blessed day and that your summer is safe.

It is almost National Scrapbooking Day!!!!

Well with NSD only two days away I am getting my scrappin supplies ready. This weekend I have ton of things to do Saturday but Sunday is all MINE..... I can not wait to see all the cool online challenges and games this weekend. I will be taking time off of work next year around NSD, because there are so many online and in person crops going on. i have already started some on those crops. I made a cute little card for a challenge on Fiskateers today for there crop.

Here is a very cute little card I did today for a card challenge on fiskateers. I love the way it turned out. It is so spring and I can not wait to give it away for a gift. I used my cricut to cut the shape of the card and envelope out, colored the grass with my copics and added lots of layered flowers and bling.

Here is the picture of the card's envelope, how it is going to look when that special person gets it on their birthday.

After opening the envelope they will see the card which will include a cute little message inside.

I had ton of fun making this card and will be for sure make some more cards on my cricut very soon. Thank you for stopping by and hope that everyone has a fun and scrappin weekend.
