Busy times 3!

Happy New Year, friends!  I've been busy planning my wedding which will take place in roughly 5 months and 2 days...but who's counting?  I've also been putting the finishing touches on my new scrap spot.  Over the Winter Break, my fiance put together 4 tall shelves for me, which now are lined up against the main wall in the room.  I was able to put so much stuff up on these shelves using baskets and bins I already owned!  I am now looking for the perfect chest of drawers or armoire and table with chairs that I can sand and paint in pop colors. It is only then my scrap spot will be complete and ready for visitors!

In between searching Craigs List and putting up supplies, I was able to sit on the floor (my favorite place) and belt out 4 layouts and 2 cards.  Take a look:

Before putting the Jenni Bowlin envelope over to the left, this layout wasn't coming together.  I love the way it came really makes our white POP!

I used all scraps for this one, and a paint chip!  I plan on making some bookmarks for my son's class for Valentine day.  Gotta go stock up on some red ones!

Taken at my son's 5th birthday party last year, this one is of my godson and my little one.  He will be 6 next month.  Where does the time go?

I had a blast working on this one!  I recently got an Expression 2 for Christmas, but refuse to open it until I go to my class that is supposed to completely teach me how to use it.  I know that's ridiculous...however, it has gotten me geeked about my original bug.  I used the Pack Your Bags cartridge on this one.

And though I am NOT at all the card maker, I was able to complete these with the addition of corner bookmarks:

I am making little trinkets and sending them randomly to various friends of mine.  I really hope they like their corner bookmarks...they were so much fun to make!

My goal for this year is 52 a week.  Right now, I am right on track.  Last year I failed miserably!  Be sure to come back and see more creations...I have a few mini albums I need to complete and more layouts to churn out.
