A New Layout

We had a great 3-day weekend here and the weather was spring like which helped alot. All of my bulbs that I planted are starting to bloom which means Spring is right around the corner.

I did get to spend some time in my scrap room this weekend and this is the layout that I came up with. Just about done with it. I have to just add the story.

I've decided that it's time to get back to basics with my scrapping. I am going to start doing layouts the way I use too. Making my own embellishments and making them simple.

But that doesn't mean I am going to stop shopping. :) In fact me and the mister went out to Michael's yesterday so that I could use my 20% off everything coupon. And I got some great deals on Valentine's Day stuff because it was on clearance for 50% off and then another 20% off that. I ended up with a really cute pad of paper from K & Company for $4.00. And some other great stuff.

I also stopped by Ross this weekend and ended up finding these really nice 4-up albums for $6 & $4. I have some future plans for them and couldn't pass them up for that price.

TA DA...Weekend Project

So remember the goodies that I showed you on Friday that I picked at Michael's? Here's the picture again just in case you don't.

And remember this wall in my newly redecorated scrap room?

Well I decided it needed something cause there was too much blank area. So I came up with this....

And I just love how it came out. It took all weekend to get everything glued and sanded but worth the effort. Now I am not sure that I like the way I have them arranged. Hubby came up this idea, to me, it looks alittle like a caterpillar up there and that's not the look I am goin for. So I will have to play around with it some more and figure exactly how I want it.

Cheating a Little

Well I guess you could say alot since this next card I made is one I copied right out of the great book that my hubby got me for Christmas. I just love this book and all of the cards in it. So yesterday I decided to sit down and finally make one of the cards out of it.
So here is the one in the book.....

And here is my finished card.....

I love this book because it gives all of the paper dimensions and then you just add the embellishments to fit the theme the card is for.
