New Layout and Etsy Find!

Today is laundry day (ewww!) and I only have a second.

But I wanted to share a layout I did using something I found at an Etsy Store and the new Teresa Collins papers .

If you do not have the Teresa Collins papers, you have to get them. They really are awesome!

And these die cut scrolls are my new addiction.

Wanna know where I got them?

Check out the article I wrote on the Homegrown Scrapbooks Blog and you will find out!

Have a great Sunday!

Summer is here!

The kids are out of school and it is disgustingly H-O-T! Seriously! I have not wanted to step outside for a week. I mean, come on! What is the point of getting dressed, putting make up on and doing your hair, when as soon as you step outside you melt like wax. Not to mention any clothes you are wearing melts into your skin. YUCK!

Can you all tell I do not like the heat? haha!

I know some of you have been wondering the state of my new scrapbook room. It is going..slow and steady. Emphasis on "slow." The drywall is up. Primed and I am almost done painting.

The room is in the basement and has one little window. In other words, no natural light. It will be okl because James is putting in a boatload of lights in there. It will be blazing! But it did not leave me a lot of color choices for the walls. I am a green and orange kinda girl, but those colors would make my room look really dark.

I was talking with a friend of mine and we agreed that the only real option besides yellow (ew! lol) and white was pink. Now I have to tell you. I have never been a big pink fan. Not even in scrapbooking until my DD came along. Then it became fun. But still never thought I would paint an entire room pink. Maybe for Kaileyne, but certainly not for me.

Alas, that has changed. My scrapbook room will be pink. The color scheme will be black, pink and white. all white cabinets. black craft table. It will look good. I have been buying stuff like crazy for this room Loving that part. LOL

But right now the entire room is pink. I walked into it today and felt I was walking into a bottle of Pepto. Seriously! The color is Champagne Blush. It is a great color. Just a little overwhelming when there is no ceiling tiles or flooring in there yet. Just PINK! KWIM?

Enough of my incessant babbling.

The room may not (probably won't) be done until late fall. I am saving up for the cabinets and the countertop. I am thinking black countertop with the white cabinets. Because I am messy when it comes to stamping. LOL What do you all think?

Also, I am looking hard for seat cushions for my new room. I want a Pink plaid. You know black white and pink. I am so desperate i was thinking of trying to (GASP) make them myself. And I don't know how to sew. It could be an adventure. LOL

Ok that is about it. my scrapbook room update. And the weather. LOL Hotter than you know what! Thank goodness for air conditioning. I may never leave my house. And you think I am kidding.

Gotta run. Little boy is hungry. I think for lunch he will be having peas. YUMMY!

Take care and will write soon. Kaileyne has her ballet Recital this weekend. So I should have tons of pictures to post.

Have a great week.
