My Scrap Space!

Hello Readers!
My scraproom is featured on the blog yesterday, so i thought i would come and share it with you today!

Lucky you, I just gave my room a face lift and it's clean!!!
I just recently purchased organizer cubes and 2 large shelves to create my perfect space.
It was really inexpensive and perfect for any scrapbooker!

I have a room dedicated to all my scrapbook stuff ..
One side has a table for my computer & sewing machine and the other side has my scrap supplies.

Here are a few pics of my space --
this first pic is not the greatest, so i'll retake for you!! :-)

My flowers are usually arranged in mini ziplock bags sorted by color or style such as Hydrangeas or company.

My Clip It Up saves so much space for me.
I have so much stuff on here.. a great purchase if you don't have one already!

I recently cleaned out about 10 cropper hoppers full of paper and gave them away!!! I can't stand old papers just sitting there. So I only have this little pile of papers and they are all favorites!

Lastly, this is my furry friend Eddie. He loves to sit by the light and enjoy the 100 watts of pure " Fake " Sunshine! He's on my paper trimmer... sometimes I have to move his butt to cut a piece or two!

That's my scraproom! I hope you enjoyed a little tour of my space and if you have a room you'd like to share with me - post it in a comment!

BG Card Kit!

I haven't created any greeting cards in ages, for some reason I always feel they are inadequate and something is missing...

I recently purchased the new Basic Grey Card kit featuring Nook and Pantry.
I love this kit!

What a great way to make cards for birthday gifts and Christmas... I think I just had a brain fart :-))) Hopefully my mom doesn't read my blog! I can't wait to start creating these...

you can find these for an amazing price of 14$.. CLICK HERE!

Have you created anything with this paper collection yet? I am debating on getting the entire collection ... but want to see a few layouts first!..

Fall - Something Splendid!

Fall, it's such a nice time of year. I really wish it would last more than 2 weeks.

We have a beautiful burning bush in our backyard that really has some symbolism for Steve and I. When we first moved in our home and started doing our landscaping we planted this burning bush in the backyard and the ashes of our 3 kitties that past away the years before. Every fall we get to enjoy it's beautiful color and of course every time we look outside we see the memory of our kitties, Sophie ( 17) Simba ( 16) and Kuddles ( 3).

" Fall "

The products I used for this page are from Jillibean Soup... currently my favorite company!

The color palette for this page are a bit different, but i love the contrast!

I just got my November issue of Histoires de page and in it is an awesome layout ( page 10 ) created by one of my scrappy favorites Elodie Touzet. Stephanie and I decided to scraplift the layout and create our own! ( I am sure she'll be posting hers on her blog soon! )

Hubby's not feeling well today, he's taking an afternoon nap. I'm cleaning my scrap room and maybe I'll attempt another layout today!

Furry Friends

A Great Scrapbooking Sunday! It rained pretty much all day here today and Steve was busy doing some running around with his brother and a work meeting for a few hours .. so I got out the scrappy supplies and started creating!

This is a picture of Eddie when he was 3 months old!!! ( Dec 2000)
How cute is he..?? he even has his tail!
The huge kitty next to him is Kuddlez. Kuddlez was 3 years old at the time and wasn't crazy about Eddie but he did enjoy a few naps with him. Kuddlez passed away in May 2001 from FIP disease. I still love this photo as the 2 boys enjoyed their Sunday morning Mush Mush!!!

The papers used for this page are from the Rough & Tough / Fancy Pants Collection
I played with some glimmer mist, shimmerz and even a little sewing!!

Thanks for peeking and I hope you had a Scrappy Sunday!

Pet Tags

It's reveal day for me at
I am happy to report that I will be playing with some Cosmo Cricket this month and next!

My first page is of Eddie and his pet tags.

Early morning or late afternoon Eddie usually wants to go outside to do his daily duties and observe our surroundings to protect us from Mice, Birds, Squirrels and Bugs. Before he gets to go out we make sure his collar with pets tags are on. He hates it, but after 8 years he understands that when the collar is on, he gets to go outside.
After an hour or so hubby and / or myself yell out the patio door ... BZ ... Buzz Buzz and we see him running from behind the shed or from the trees in the backyard. ... we hear this jingle jingle from his tags as he runs up the stairs to the door... I love seeing his cute little face.. then of course he gets tons of treats cause he's been a good boy! Collar then comes off cause he's inside and he gets a snack and nap .. until he's ready to go out again the next day!

His Pet Tags have his name, my name and our address and phone number. He also has his Town license meaning he's been given his yearly rabies vaccine.

With this page, I distressed the edges and added some Glossy Accent on my alphas.

Can you tell we love our kitty? he is sooo spoiled but really he loves having his photo taken. See him posing in this picture?? ya... he loves it!

Interested in getting Pet Tags for your furry friend ... CLICK HERE!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Goodbye Scenic Route

I am shocked but I am not suprised. Sad to hear today that Scenic Route will be closing in the next few weeks. I must say that SR was one of my favorite companies, they have awesome double sided papers, great color combination and fabulous paper packs, chipboard pieces and rubons.

I am sad to see you go Scenic Route
