Back To School Paint Can Swap

Here is the awesome paint can I received from Luvskrapin from the Cricut mb! I love this paint can! Isn't the paper the cutest? I also love the way she used the drippy goo punch to make it look like paint spilling over the sides!
And look at all the amazing goodies!! I was so excited going through all the goodies in my can and I can't wait to use all my new scrapbooking supplies! Thanks again, Luvskrapin!!

BTW... just two more followers to my blog and I will be giving away the prize (see my last post for further details)!!!

My Scrapbook Room is Ready!!!

I am so happy!! My scrapbook room is finally back to normal! The cabinets were re-installed today and I have just spent the last few hours moving all of my scrapbooking items back into the room. I have stayed up way too late but I just wanted to get it done and tomorrow evening I'm hoping to actually do some scrapbooking!
One more thing I was really happy about is that they also put up baseboard for me, and we hadn't even finished that before the flood! I still need to get some trim around the window though and paint on wall by the entrance (I didn't show this in the pics because it's just plain peg board right now).
Anyway, I'm so happy that I'll be able to use my room again!! Wooo hooo!!!

Wooo hooo!! I have a floor!!

My floor was finally installed in my scrapbook room today! It is nice to have an actual floor again, rather than the concrete. I like the way the floor turned out, but the only thing is, it was installed the opposite way I would have liked it. Now it kind of has a bowling alley kind of look! LOL! Oh well... at least it's done and tomorrow the cabinets will be put back together and then I can get all organized once again!
As you can see, my cats also like the new floor!

My Beautiful Scraproom - HA!!!!

Here is a pic of what my scrap room looks like right now. :(
Yesterday, someone came to take apart all the lower cabinets and my island so the room will be ready for the new floor to go in on Monday. On Tuesday, the cabinets are going to be reassembled and then I'll have to load up all the cabinets with my scrapbooking supplies once again. So, things should be back to normal by Tuesday, but it's hard to believe the way it looks right now!!

Disney Vacation Album

Here is an album I put together to give as a gift to our cousins who just went to Disneyworld for the first time. I can't take credit for all the great pages in this album though... these Disney layouts were from a Disney autograph swap I was in about a year ago, and unfortunately, I can't remember who made each layout, but this was a swap through the Cricut mb. The only pages I actually made were the Mickey and Minnie pages. It made for a quick gift album to put together!

1st Class Picture - Celebrate Education Challenge #46

Here is a layout I completed about a month ago for my daughter's 1st school picture (nursery school). I used mainly CTMH products for this layout. This is also my entry for The Cuttlebug Spot's Challenge #46: Celebrate Education. The challenge is to create anything that has a school or education theme.

The Scrapping Cottage Contest

I would just like to share that The Scrapbooking Cottage is having a contest and giving away a $250 shopping spree at their online store! If you haven't checked out their adorable CottageCutz dies, you must take a look! Each die is so detailed and I just love them all. So far, my favourite is the CottageCutz Ice Cream Treats Shapes, especially the rocket popsicle!
