Happy New Year's Eve!!!

Wow - 3 days in a row! Must be a record for me lately! But I have been on a roll in my scrap room! I am still trying to think about how to expand my scrap space. I bought a cute shelf at the Christmas Tree Shop (does anyone love that store like I do?) I want to put my glass jars with my ribbon wrapped around popsicle sticks on it so I can see them easier so I use them more!

My sis-in-law gave me an awesome magnetic board and I want to put brads, etc on there as soon I find more wall space! I think I may have to more a shelving unit (which means I will have to clean it off to manage it!) I will keep you up to date on rearranging! If you have any ideas, feel free to share them with me!

Today's layouts are of my oldest niece's High School graduation! I searched online for some layout ideas I could case. I found some over at 2 peas. Great site to check out for inspiration!

The left hand layout is simple pictures matted in white cardstock on a black cardstock background. I used a vellum sticker with a quote in the upper right had corner. To make it pop a little more - I added some yellow paint to the edges of the white cardstock and a rhinestone for bling!

The right hand layout is the more labor intensive one! I had a great time trying to decide where to put all the elements! I painted the chipboard swirls in a wine color and the stars a bright yellow! The hardest part is waiting for the paint to dry so I can move on and adhere them!!!

I added some glitter to the stars and some rhinestones to the swirls to coordinate with the facing page!

The circle is cut from some notebook patterned paper using my CM circle cutter and the scallops are from some composition notebook patterned paper with the cricut. The chipboard letters are some self-adhesive ones I had in my large stock of chipboard! I added some pop dots to the stars to give them some depth!

I hope you have enjoyed the layouts from the last few days! I will be working hard at creating more this weekend! We are due to have a BIG storm on New Year's day here so what a perfect time to hole up in my room! Have a very safe and Happy New Year's Eve!!!
