Must make this short but sweet.  Unfortunately, I will not be posting any projects for the rest of the week.  My son was out riding his dirt bike Monday and broke his collar bone so needless to say I have been playing and will be playing nurse for the next 6 weeks or so.  Thank godness things were not worst but it is not fun to see your kids suffer in pain:(  He has an appointment to see the orthopedic surgeon next Monday so we will have to wait and see how that goes.  Please wish him a speedy recovery!!

Puppy Love

Hello everyone!  I hope you all enjoyed your Easter holiday.  As the new week begins that only means one thing the release of the new E2!!  I wonder if you are all excited as much as I am?  I am not sure that I will be staying up until midnight, yah right but I will be checking first thing in the morning.

Today I have another layout for you.  Again, it is from the the Ninabrooks kits that I have mentioned before.  I can't say enough about them.  They make things so easy for you.

Enjoy the rest of your Monday!

Ninabrooks Layout

I am so excited to share with the rest of you these amazing scrapbooking kits that I purchase.  Generally there is a group of us girls that spend the morning crafting using these kits.  You get all the supplies needed to create either a 2 page layout or 4 and you get all the instructions and pictures to go with it and at the most reasonable prices ever.  I believe they come out with new kits quarterly so be sure to head over and check them out http://ninabrookdesigns.com/ and don't be surprised if you don't see these on my blog more often.

Scrapbook Room Tour!

Happy Monday!  I hope you all enjoyed your weekend as did I.  The weather here is finally starting to let up and the snow is starting to melt!!  Today is a big day for Nala as she starts puppy school tonight and today is also my brother's birthday so I must give a shout out to him.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY BLAKE!!

On to the good stuff!  I think I have finally organized my scrap space since moving into my new home. It's a small space but is it cozy and it works.  The only thing I wish I had was a window, good thing for good light bulbs!  I hope you all enjoy!

Enjoy the rest of your day and I will see you back here tomorrow with a project!

French Memo Board

So when I was doing some cleaning up in my craft room I found a couple of canvases and my first thought was to get rid of them.  Well I am happy to announce that I didn't get rid of them and I put them to good use.  With a few buttons, ribbon and some material I made not 1 but 2 french memo boards.  They are by no means perfect and not very big but they filled a spot on my wall that needed a little something.  Problem is I don't have too many cards from my fellow crafters to display them :( 

Let me know what you think and would love to hear how and where you display your crafty things.

Until Tomorrow,
