Sunday Brings Lots of Pictures

What a day! I got a chance to do some cards as I had taken a couple days off from being crafty. These cards were quite the challenge. A friend wanted some Grandpa cards with specifics in mind - so I had to think long and hard of what my Grandpa would like. Pink and glitter were out of the question ;)

Grandpa card #1 - Her Grandpa likes to fish:

My first time using SCAL - I got a bit of glue on the letters - hope Grandpa doesn't mind/see it!

Grandpa card #2 - Her other Grandpa likes to farm:

SCAL again - love that program! AND I actually wrote the "The" on the card. Pretty risky for me considering I always seem to ruin stuff with my handwriting.

Card Ingredients:
Brazzill paper; Recollections cardstock; Little City and Kristen fonts; American Tradional Designs Great Outdoors embellishments

While I was busy, my husband made me something too:

That's right ladies, I am the best "scrap-er" in the world ;)

And while we were busy, so were our cats (Max & Baby):

Busy enjoying the sun and sleeping, that is.

Happy Sunday!! Hope the day is treating you all well!



Well, I ran out of challenges so I had to use my own imagination - imagine that?!?!

I also am entering for the first time over at SPCC. It is a fantastic challenge based on colors, who can't use their full imagination with that???

SPCC colors (fun and bright colors, right?):

And because I don't have enough time in the day to do it all, I have combined the two challenges.

My entry (taken at The Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas):

And my close-ups ;)

No time for scrapping ingredients, I gotta get my entries in ;)

Happy Wednesday night! Thanks you SOOOOOOOOO MUCH for taking a look at my blog!

Ikea Scraproom

MORE scraproom photos. Are you getting sick of them yet??

We made a detour to Edmonton and went to Ikea before the wedding. I LOVE that store!!

We bought me a new $30 book shelf so that the old one can go in my closet.

There is my Cricket, I just need some time to play with it!!! Derek got me Sure Cuts A Lot too!!!!!!

My new Ikea shelves ($4 each) and lime green brackets. The brackets were on clearance for 50 cents a piece. I have lime green paint to do an accent wall too.

And my pretty new $59 chair!

I love my scrap room. Not only is it budget friendly but it is cheery and fun! I am very lucky to have my own creative room!

Happy Monday to all!
