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??
