Redoing My scraproom/The Girls Playroom

I am currently in the process of redoing my scraproom/the girls playroom. So far so good! We have started by paintng the room. It used to be a lighter blue. We painted it 3 walls off white (the color is angel food) and one wall a lighter pink (the color is sheer pink) It turned out exactly how i imagined it so I am very Happy! The next step in all the furniture. I want to build a customized desk and some shelves. I have most of what i need. We are now in the process of putting everything together. I am so excited about getting this done. I even got one of those making memories embelishment centers with a 50% off cupon at michaels. I have room for another one and i would really like to get another one. However, i would only get it if i can get another 50% off cupon , I could use a 40% cupon but its still a little pricey. We will see. Once i get the desk all built and and some of the girls stuff in the room, Then we will see what else i can fit in there Ha. It is a good size room so i know i can fit a lot more in there then what i have right now. Just got to figure out the best way to get maximum capacity out of the space. I Will be putting a couple before pictures up soon. I wish i got a good before picture but i didnt take any when i was all nice and clean. I took some after we moved the big closet out that was in there. I just thought it was a waste of space cuz it didnt hold much and it was hard for the girls to get at some stuff., but most of all it didnt go with the color schem of the furniture lol. I want all white furniture in the room. So i will be putting up some picture soon, of the before and the aftr so far. I may need some storage suggestions for some stuff. I will hopefully be doing a youtube video after i get most of the funriture and some stuff in there. That is if i can get the nerve up to do one! Ok so stay tuned for pictures!!

I need to post/update more!

So I haven't posted anything in a while. I have been wanting to but just haven't found the time (and ill admit i have been a little lazy lol) I have a mini album that i made for a friend at work, for his little boy, that i really want to put up. I have already showed it to him and his girlfriend and they love it. That made me feel good that they liked it.

There are so many mini albums that I wanna make for people. I wanna make ones for 4 friends who have little girls, my next door neighbor who has a little boy, my best friend who just got engaged, and one for my grandma about our cabin up north. I have no intention of getting them done anytime soon lol. That is way to much to take on right now. I'm hoping to do one a month, maybe 2 if i have the time. I have most of them thought out in my head and have most of the papers and some of the embellishments for them. I wanna give the one to my grandma for Christmas so that's the one that i am most worried about getting done. She is very sentimental and i know she will love it, i might even have to buy her a box of tissues to go along with it lol.

Well in other news I now have 2 weddings I am in next summer. This is going to be crazy helping 2 friends with their weddings. Not to mention all the extra working I am gonna have to do to pay for bridesmaids dresses, flower girl dress, gifts for them. But it will be worth it all because these friends mean the world to me. OK well I hope to have some pictures up soon, so check back.

My Mini Album!!

Here are the pictures of my first mini album. I think i did a pretty good job on for it being my first one. Not as great as all the others i see though:-) I took it to work last night and everyone that I showed it to loved it!! They said how creative and they hadn't seen something like that before. That made me feel really good about it. Hopefully others like it. Let me know what you think of it. I would appreciate and comments. Or if you have any questions. Thanks for checking it out!

Sorry I couldn't figure out how to turn some of these

I am so excited, I finished my first mini album last night. I stayed up till like 1am because i just wanted to get it done. lol. Its a pretty simple album. I kept it that way because its one that I will be taking to work to show people, so it will be handled a lot probably. So i didn't add many embellishments. I am hoping to get pictures up of it by tomorrow. So check back soon. Hope people will like it. Thanks!

Mini album

So I am having a little trouble with the mini album i am currently making. I can't think of any creative ways to display my pictures. Its mainly an album for pictures, not much journaling. Its of my 2 girls of course lol. I have 2-3 pictures to display on each page, I have 1 or 2 more pages left and i ave run out of ideas.

I did a little flip up card type thing on one page, I made 2 tags out of pictures and they slid in under some ribbon, and for the one page that i had 7 pictures that i really wanted in there i made a little envelope, and put them on a sheet of paper that i folded acordian style. I have one page that has 2 pictures that are verticle and 1 that is horizontal and i really want all three of them on there.

The album is about 6x6 and it looks like a scalloped diamond shape. Any ideas or thought would be greatly appriciated. I will get pictures up of it as soon as i am finished. I like it so far, its not the greatest, buts its my first one.

I am not putting a whole lot of embelishments on it only because I will be taking this one to work with me to show people, and will be handled by a lot of people. I work at a resteraunt on friday nights and there are so many regulars that ask about my daughters, like how they are doing and everything. So i thought i could bring in this mini album to show whoever wants to see, so they can see how much the girls have grown.

ok well I am off to work on it a little more!!

Thank you!!
