A BIG THANK YOU! To my friend Angie at the Shabby Scrapper in AG for making these adorable pig and 4-H clover decorations for Enzo and Game. I love, love them! She sells on ETSY. Check her out or stop by the store!

When Duain and I first purchased this home, I didn't not want to jump in and decorate my new scrap room. Simply, because I had no idea how I wanted it and was to worried about just making the move to even think about decorations, schemes, colors etc. Well, after almost six years it was time to do a make over. Thanks to my talented and very organized friend Paula, she brought my room into what I had always envisioned it to be. "A place of reflection of the things I have accomplished, and yet to conquer." After four days of paiting and two trips to Lowe's, I have a beautiful new room. I seem to be spending alot more time in there and cant wait to host a "Break it In" crop complete with wine and food. Here are some photos of the transformation. I still have a few odds and ends to finish up. Paula, you have been a blessing, thank you for my beautiful Scrap Rack Cover and matching Cricut Cover. Not to mention the countless hours you spent helping me over the last week. I truly appreciate our friendship. Last but not least, to Duain, my hubby, for the new paint and blinds and trusting Paula and I with colors and painting.
In order to keep me motivated and the creative juices flowing, I have joined a monthly scrap group at my friend Betty's home. We meet from 2-5 p.m. the second Thursday of the month and she helps us create beautiful projects and cards. I have really enjoyed participating and look forward to this time every month. Here is what we completed yesterday. I especially loved making the Happy Birthday card with the spinning/sliding wheel (Its two pennies stuck together).
I'm very excited to report I have completed my first tag swap. All tags were mailed out this week and I could not be happier. I had 99% participation with only one flaker. I'm sooooo looking forward to doing the next one. Get busy creating. The next set of tags are due September 1st. I will email the group and see who wants to continue so I have a correct amount. Thank you to my 11 ladies who participaed. I did the tag which had the burlap and rose titled: LIVE, LOVE, LAUGH. I have to toot my own horn a little bit. I had made each rose out of vellum paper and spray dyed it. Now, for those who know me, this was way out of my comfort zone. I did feel proud of my accomplishement and love the way they turned out. Each one was uniquely different. I truly loved the tags and was really excited to receive them. Here is a preview of what was submitted. Enjoy!
