Not to get carried away -- featuring WPlus9 :)

Hi everyone! :)



If you remember from my 'reflections' post -- I wanted to work on my stamping and coloring this year -- so several family members got me gift certificates to my LSS "Scraps of Love" for Christmas -- so I was able to get the Hampton Arts "Stamp Perfect" tool (WHICH I LOVE BY THE WAY!!!!) -- so that is helping with the stamping part -- and I am working on my coloring skills too (so NO judging! LOL!) .... and I wanted to share a card I made :)


I used Bo Bunny stamps on here, along with the sentiment coming from WPlus9 stamps :)




Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

From old to new :)

Hi everyone! :)

In January when Adam came to visit, we visited some antique stores, as I was looking for a bigger desk to refinish for Brookie :)

We found this one :)





This is from my ERA! LOL!! 1970's at it's best! :)


You can probably see in this photo, that the previous owner had painted black chalkboard paint on the top ... oy!  So I got some paint remover and went to work! :)





Here is the painted top after the FOURTH application of paint remover!!! Yikes .... 




Finally ... the black paint is GONE! :)




And here is the desk all sanded :)




And here it is all modernized!!!!! :)

Please forgive the garage photos .... I took these after I was done, but before I moved it to her room :)











And here it is in her room :)





And here is the before and after :)




Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

Our Day -- featuring Bo Bunny :)

Hi everyone! :)

Today our latest sketch challenge is live over at The Memory Nest - and I wanted to share my take on it :)

And today is also the DAY BEFORE my and Brian's 9th wedding anniversary! :)

9 years ago tomorrow, we said "I do!" :)

And every year at this time I create a wedding layout ... and so I used our sketch from The Memory Nest for my page :)

For my page I used Bo Bunny's "Enchanted Garden" collection, along with a key that Yvonne sent me, and a Prima wreath and Prima pearls that has been in my stash FOREVER! :)












And here is our sketch :)





Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

Be Happy - with a transformation!! -- featuring Paper House Productions! :)

Hi everyone! :) 

Today is my day up on the Paper House Productions blog and I have something FUN to share with you! :)

I went to a neighbor's yard sale a few weeks ago, and she had this old jewelry carousel for $3.00! I just had to have it! :)

Here is it before I got my artsy hands on it :)




I took out all the old felt, removed the hardware, and painted it black -- then I added some "Be Happy" papers from Paper House Productions ... because DUH! it has PINK in it -- and what I was transforming this into, that COLOR was a MUST! :)

And here it is NOW! :)










And since I already have a jewelry holder in my bathroom, what do you think I used this for?  My Paper House Productions STICKERS of course!!! Yep!! This is now in my scrap room (hence the need for PINK!) holding my stickers to have them insight all the time! :)





And the best part of this carousel -- it turns, so I can see the stickers on the sides! :)





Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
