gotta love the Bangles!!
Not a lot going on. I am just doing my normal Monday cleaning. I am hoping to get a challenge done for the local group I am in which is due tonight by midnight. I thought I had longer to work on it, but apparently not...lol
Saturday, my friend Elyse came over and we cropped from 9:30 to 5. I worked on a gift album for an upcoming baby shower and finished a fall swap page for next week's JPS crop. I have to make 4 more layouts for the gift album. I ran out of ideas and embellies! It's a baby boy album, so I had a block for some reason. I had never done anything baby boy, so I guess that's why. So tomorrow I am going to HL to get the rest of the supplies.
Since the album isn't done, I don't wanna post pics yet, so I guess I will leave you with a pic of the cutest girl ever....
Have a great week!!!!!! :)

My friend Mary tagged me with the following:
Here are the rules for the 7 others that I'm tagging...
1. Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself (on your blog, we all want to know them).
3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
4. Let each person know that they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
I'm kind of a boring person I think, because some of these are well know facts. ;)
1. I like things very clean looking - lateral and perpendicular. (just look at my layouts and that is easy to see....lol)
2. I own 9 yes count them, 9 Coach purses and the matching wallets. I have a serious addiction, I know. I try to look at other purses, but it must say Coach or it doesn't come home with me.
3. I saw snow for the first time this year--living in FL, that's not something you see everyday. We were in Northern California in February and I was in knee-deep snow!
4. I have lived on the same property since I was born with the exception of 5 years when my parents divorced. I have lived in 4 different houses on on piece of property.
5. I get car sick very easily. If I am not driving, you better believe I have taken a *Bonine* before I got in your car. I also have vertigo spells..........
6. The inside of my car is ALWAYS messy. By the time I get home, I don't feel like cleaning it out, so it stays a mess. You never know what you might find in there. I often joke that if I were ever in an accident that AJ and I would get hurt not from being hit, but from the flying debris in my car. Need a fork? I probably have one. How about some socks? Yeah, got those too---all in the cabin of my lovely car!!!
7. I am a make-up whore. I have TONS of makeup and always buy more. I have 3 cosmetic bags FULL of makeup that I fell I must have just in case I need that certain color.
Okay so who to tag?
I tag everyone on my blogroll who hasn't done this yet.
Have a great day!! :)

Colleen over at Scrapperie challenged us to blog one thing we are thankful for in every letter of the word 'graditude'
So here goes:
Great friends to hang out with
Running around buying stuff for the new house
Adrienne sleeping in HER bed all night long last night
That little bit of silence before AJ wakes up
I have a huge support system
The clean smell of my brand new house
Unpacking (no, really!)
Dreams coming true
Every day with Web home
Nothing going on on the scrap-front. We've been so busy moving in that I haven't even looked at the scrap stuff! I am hoping to get my countertops installed in the scraproom this week so that I can start getting it organized. My friend Elyse is coming out Saturday and we are going to scrap all day while the girls play. I am hoping the new room will be usable!

So here we are into weekend #3 of painting the new house. Last night my mom and I started on colorblocking the scrap room.
That's my mommy, with her handy level thingy in hand.
Here's a sneak peek of the colors. The third color is a creamy white.
It's pretty dark in there because we still do not have our electricity turned on yet. They are saying Monday is the day for that!
We still have some touch-ups to do in there and then we will be done with the painting part!
Next week we will be getting the pre-made counter tops from Lowes and Web will be getting them installed. THEN, I will be moving in!!!! One of my friends has already booked the first crop date in my new room! WOO-HOO!!!!

I met two of my friends Saturday at the LSS for an all-day crop. I had soooooo much fun! I had not scrapped with these girlies in over and year and it was waaaaaay overdue!! I must say I haven't laughed that much in a L-O-N-G time! We're already planning our next crop-a-rama!
I didn't really get all too much done, but I sure did enjoy the company!
I was finally able to use the Brittany's Castle line I bought back in June! I knew I would find the perfect pictures for the pretty paper!
Trying to get the PERFECT SHOT:
Paper is Close to my Heart, chipboard is Kurio from WM.
Paper & CS stickers are CTMH and fishies are Jolee's
I've been using my CHERISH book from CTMH (I am a consultant). I absolutely LOVE it! It makes it sooooo easy to create multiple-photo layouts!
I have no scrapping on my agenda this week. We are still painting the new house and hope to start moving in this week! My scraproom is well underway. I will post some pics later of it!

So I was tired of the way my ribbon was being stored. Sure it was in one of those nice containers that is made to hold the rolls and zips and everything, but I just hated it.
Last night I began searching for a new solution. I kind of wanted THIS but didn't know if I would really enjoy it. And then I would be out $19.99 + shipping. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, I found this lovely idea on a website or blog somewhere and thought I would give it a shot.
There are 60 ribbons in there! And it only cost me $1!!!! Hopefully I will like it..........

Here are the layouts I did a couple of weeks ago. I still have one more to journal and then I will post it also.
This week I will be priming and painting my scraproom. Hopefully on Sunday I can get my countertops purchased and we can start getting the room together!
I'm going to an all day crop on Saturday so I hope to get some layouts done. Been wanting to scrap all week long, but with work and trying to paint the new house, nothing got done.
Have a good week!
