Kitchen Update Part 2

So I added some frames and trays from 7 Gypsies.  I need to add some pictures and decorate the trays.  The clear scalloped piece will have a picture and some patterned paper behind the acrylic.  Then we can use it as a dry erase surface.  Ahhhh......much better than a blank wall.  Still needs work, but, hey, it's better!!! 

Oh, by the way, the dorky stuff in the trays is from our Swiss girl.  (We have a foreign exchange student living with us this school year.)  She couldn't stand them being empty. :)

The Kitchen Update Part 1

Here is a look at the "Before" picture.  I have planned to do something with this for over a year.  Today is the day!
 I bought the "Kitchen" wood sign from Hobby Lobby for $5.  I used the laser level to line up "is the" with the bottom of the wooden sign.  (Yeah, I know, the other "The" is crooked....I fixed it!)

 Next, I was ready to hang "Heart of the".  I cut these pieces out on my Cricut out of black vinyl.  Then, use contact paper to pick the pieces up from the Cricut mat.

Now, that looks better!  Imagine the calendar hanging back there.  The calendar is getting an update, too!  But I am waiting for the spray paint to dry!

LOL!), the second is Chloe showing big brother how to climb the wall, the third is Chloe, Noah, and Ed, and the last picture is me and Ed on a mountain peak.

Wedding Card

Here is a quick card I whipped up for Jessica and Mike's wedding last Saturday. Nothing like waiting until the last minute to make a card. ;) I think I got all the ink off my fingers before the wedding.

Ed's Birthday in 2009

Here is a quick page of Ed's birthday in 2009. We celebrated with friends. Cari came in from New Mexico to celebrate her birthday (which is the day before Ed's birthday) and so we celebrated together. Good times!

This is my girl. She was swinging at one of my friend's grandparent's house. What a cutie!

Used my new Bazzill template to create the swirly bling! Love it!

New Doors...New Trim

These pictures were taken in October of 2009 when my brother, Tim, finally installed the doors and trim in the basement.

Patterned paper is Basic Grey and the card stock is Bazzill.

A Lil' Scrappin' Done

Snow Day....Again

So after 5 loads of laundry and a little cleaning, I got some time to scrap! This is my goofy nephew. (Nope, that's not me squirting chocolate in my mouth....) I used a sketch from pencillines

Page 2 of Long Distance Scrap

Our challenge this time: Use pencillines sketch 209, 2 snowflakes and 7 eyelet or brads (numbers were from Jan rolling the dice), an embossing folder and glitter.

A Scrappy Day

Well, so far we have 9 inches of that means NO SCHOOL! WOO! HOO! (Unfortunately, we must make up the days in May. :( ) So my sister and I are doing a long distance scrap. The challenge was to copy the sketch #221 , complete in 1 hour, and post to our blogs. Well, mine took longer than an hour due to Cricut not cutting deep enough, Glimmer Mist bottles clogging, Xyron sticker maker ran out and destroyed a snowflake, and so on....

CS is Bazzill, pp is My Minds Eye, punches by Martha Stewart, Snowflakes from Christmas Cricut cart, and swirly from QK. Anyway, here is my interpretation of the sketch:
Go to Jan's page to see her challenge.
