I was hoping to have some pictures of the Valentine's I made yesterday to share but ended up rearranging my room afterwards and forgot to go get the camera!! I will get the pics tonight and share them tomorrow! I am sending them, along with a care package, to a friend (and his unit) who is serving in Iraq. Just a little something to say "Thank You"
Like I mentioned - I have been trying to decide how to rearrange my scraproom. I have 2 large metal shelving units that hold a bulk of my stash! I really wanted to use more wall space. After chatting with my sis-in-law - she gave me a terrific idea. I emptied and moved the shelving units to the center of my space and placed them back to back. So now I can walk around them to access my "stuff" and have wall space to use as well!!
Things still need to be put back together but I am hoping to work some more on it tonight. I want to hang my newly purchased towel rack to hang my SU punches on, and hang a cork board for displaying ideas and pictures! I am also waiting for an order from LTD with some magazine boxes and some colored boxes for storage. I want things "out" but not "out". Once I finish the rearranging - I want to work on my paper scraps. if you have any ideas for organizing those - please let me know!! See you tomorrow!!!

This is MY take on this sketch:
I don't know what I was saving this paper for but I think it works beautifully for this page! I used some scrap cardstock for the plain colors and felt flowers for accents! I have also been saving these flowers for something special. I printed the wording on white cardstock and inked the edges. The word "daughter" I printed and cut each letter out separately. I also stitched around the plain cardstock! First time stitcher! Yeah me!!! I will be stitching on more layouts in the future!
As soon as I saw this page - I knew what papers and embellishments to dig out of my stash! I love it when the ideas come that easy! Every now and again I will just sit with my sketch idea books and look through them for inspiration!
I hope you have enjoyed seeing this layout as much as I did making it! Please let me know what you think! Have a terrific weekend!!!

I hope you all had a safe end to the decade! We spent the evening with some great friends having a few laughs!!! What a terrific way to ring a new year!
I HAVE been scrapping! I will take pictures tonight to share with you. I did a layout of my daughter that I have to say is awesome! (pat pat on the back). Believe it or not - I even sewed on that layout! I have never done it before. I have always been a little afraid to sew on a page. Afraid of what - you ask? I really don't know. My sewing machine had been messed up for a long time and was stitching very tightly so perhaps I was afraid of perforating the paper until it split in 2!!! Who knows! But I did it and I am now addicted to it! I cannot wait to share the layout! And do some more stitching!!
Yesterday I received the pictures I ordered in the mail! I need to place one more small order (with a promo email I got!) and I will be all printed for 2009! Somehow I got caught up to the current year! I know I am guilty of not taking as many pictures as I have in the past and certainly not as many of everyday life as I should but......... I am a busy woman!!! :)
I hope you have a fan-tabulous Tuesday! Tomorrow I am off to take the hubby to the eye doctors to finish the testing to see if he is eligible for lasik. Keep your fingers crossed! Ta-ta!!
