It is coming along beautiflully!!!

The cabinets are in and the countertops are place and my little room is looking SO fantastic!! I have started moving in and trying to figure out how to store everyting. It is going to be so amazing to have my own little space!

I even found the most perfect "Gerber Daisy" picture the other day. I also got my hands on an adorable little Black and White clock.

Cabinets and Counter Tops

Last night we went to Lowe's to buy cabinets and counter tops. At first I was really excited. Then I started looking at the prices and panicked, in fact I could barely breathe for a few minutes and tears welled in my eyes. I really didn't want to spend that much money on my little room, but Brian insisted that he was going to do right.
After lugging it all home and up the stairs I was able to relax again. My little room is going to look SO nice! I can't wait to move in!

It is FINALLY time to start painting!! YIPPEE!!

Well after months of debate and trying to make sure my room "Flows" with the rest of the house, I have decided what I am going to do with my room! It certainly won't "Flow" but that is OK!

I am decided to put in white cabinets, black countertops and paint the walls PINK!! I originally was going to go with "Oh so pink", a very light pink!

But as we were at Lowe's Brian told me to "GO BOLD" so I did! I choose Nanas Rose for my walls. It is the same color as the Glimmer Mist mat!

I am SO excited! Pink just makes me happy, so I wanted to make my room a HAPPY PLACE!!

Plus I found the PERFECT black shelves at Target last week!!

Now if only my room was done so I could MOVE IT!!

Happy Birthday

I made this card to celebrate Uncle Kevin's 50th Birthday!

I am submitting this to Bitten By the Bug. They are have a NUMBERS Challenge with the prize being a Cricut Calendar cartridge! And you all know I make at least 3 calendars every Christmas, so this cart would be a blessing.

Pink Storage Boxes

I have spend endless hours searching for Pink Storage Boxes for my scrapbook room. I found some on Ebay but they were ridiculously priced and the shipping was crazy.

Today I finally found the perfect PINK storage boxes and they are "Perfect Pink" in color. There are even two sizes available which is even more perfect. They are Sizzix die storage boxes, but I think they will do just fine for what I need them for.
The bigger one measures 6 1/4 X 6 3/4 X 9 1/4
The small one measures 5 1/3X3 1/3X9 1/4.

And they have the Cutest little flowered Nameplate!

Buttons Buttons Beautiful Buttons

I am getting very anxious to start planning my scrapbook room! But since we are not sure exactly what are doing yet, I can't do much planning!
BUT, I knew I wanted to store my buttons in these adorable jars from Making Memories! After loading them up, they just looked a little Blah, so I embellished them last night.

These WILL be somewhere on my table or a shelf, they are just too cute to hide!

Gypsy Gala Giftbag

About two weeks ago I won a Gypsy Gala Giftbags from

My package arrived today and I was totally excited! Because the new Gypsy will not be released until the Fall I received a Voucher for one! WOOHOO! Rumor has it that it will be available October 4th at Michael's.
In box was also the Sweethearts Cartridge. I am not sure I would have actually purchased this one but now that I have it, I know there are a few things I will cut from it. I really like the Mr & Mrs... it will make cute Wedding cards. I like the phrases much more then shapes.

There was also a book and some Gypsy M&M's. The kids have all ready devoured them!

Here is a photo of my little room...

The floor is in and the insulation is complete!

Now the hard part begins, I have to make choices!

Do I use the Cube System from Michaels?? These are not permanet and could easily be moved, remember we ARE military!

Or do I let Brian build in cabnets and counters?? These would obviously be permanent. (Brian does wants to retire here)

I really wanted to paint my room pink, but Brian suggested a more neutral color. The room is small and there is no window.

What do you think ladies??

Frustrating Mail day...

I know that this really isn't a big deal in the grand scheme of life. But after an anxious wait I hate it when you don't get what you ordered or your order is broken.

I have wanted this Misting Mat for months!

I found it at a website on sale and I had a 20 % off coupon so I decided to order it! I waited patiently, well maybe not too patiently but I did wait. I received it today! I was SO excited... until I opened the box and found out that they had shipped me the wrong size!! :( Now, I have to wait another week or so until the new one arrives!

I also got my order from Scentsy and my burner is chipped! They will replace it ASAP, but I still have to wait! The scented bricks are SO yummy and I guess I will just have to keep opening the package to smell while I wait for my burner.

I love it when a company stands behind thier product!

These are just the cutest little journaling sprouts!! I LOVE them so much I ordered one in each color... orange, green, red, pink, brown and black!!

I went to use the brown last night and it was printed poorly and some of the pattern was even off the edges. If you know me, I am a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to scrapping. I contacted Jillibean Soup and they told me they would send me a replacement immediately. SWEET!! I love to support a company that will stand behind their products!

Notice anything different? Glimmer Mist has a new label but will remain the same great product I love. WE NEED YOU to help spread the good news! Check out for more sneak peaks, ideas and other great Tattered Angels products.

Scrap Me Pink

I have had a Family Blog and a Photography Blog for a couple years now. I finally decided it was time to start a Scrappy Blog. As for a name... it has taken me a couple weeks to figure it out! So today and I put two of my favorite things together... the color PINK and scrapping.
