My All-Day Crop Creations

Last Saturday, I attended my first all-day crop, which my neighbour, a Creative Memories consultant, hosted.  It was awesome!  I had never done so much scrapbooking in one day!  I will definitely be attending more!  I completed 18 layouts plus an altered composition book.  The only problem was that I didn't bring enough photos to scrap!  I never though I would get so much done, so I just wasn't prepared enough and I ended up making a lot of pages that I will have to add the photos to later.  
I must say, I really like Creative Memories products a lot more than I did in the past.  The patterned papers they have no are so nice!  I picked up a couple paper packs, the curvy paper cutter, some cute paper flowers, and I pre-ordered a really nice flower punch.  
Here are some of the layouts I created at the crop.

Ready to Scrap!!

My new scrap room is finally ready!!  Well... there are still a few finishing touches that need to be done like the trim around the window, baseboards, and some paint touch ups, but it is finally ready to use!  I am going to be scrapping in my new room for the first time this morning!  I don't have all of my supplies moved in yet, but of course my Cricut is in there already.  I will post more pics once I have everything organized, but here are a few for now...

Lots of storage!

The upper cabinets are now installed!  There is going to be a ton of storage in this room!  I don't think I have enough scrapbooking products to fill up all the cabinets, so I may just have to go shopping for more!!  Ha ha!  
I also put a second coat of paint on most of the walls, but I ran out!  I can't believe I used a gallon of paint and still need more!  I plan on getting the rest of the painting done this weekend.  
Yesterday, we ordered the counter top for the island (see picture of sample) but it will take 2-3 weeks to come in.  I guess we should have put the order in a little earlier.  I will have the same countertop throughout the scrap room.  I also picked the hardware for the cabinets and drawers.  
So, things are coming a long but it will still be 2-3 weeks I guess until the room is complete.
