The "almost finished" scrapbook room

I am waiting on some cropper hopper paper holders I bought on line. They are supposed to hold 900 pages each. I am going to put them on my new IKEA shelves. This should just about complete my new scrapbook room.
For now - Here is a layout I made in the "unfinished" room.

Heather's 28th Birthday Party

Since I've become a complete Pinterest addict I created a lovely, or what I percieve as lovely, birthday party for my daughter. It has a pink and zebra theme based on the cake she picked out from a gift certificate. Here are a few of the pics from the party.

Included in the picture is 6 food items where I got the recipe from Pinterest. I found the idea for wine cork place cards there and the idea to turn candle holders upside down putting the candles on the base. I got the idea for cupcake cups in clear cups from a party site I found on Pinterest.

I really love the Pinterest site and am thankful for all the wonderful ideas I can easily manage.

Glee Challenge #3

Children's music was the challenge and "Bow, wow, wow" was the title. It's before and after pictures of our pooch CiCi. The before letters are grungy like her and the after letters are glittery like her.

GLEE Challenge #2 - Alt Rock- Train

The second challenge in the GLEE club challenge was to use a song title from an album by the Alternative rock band Train. The idea was to keep pace with the alt/grunge theme. I chose the title "Brick by Brick" and picked pic's from building our house. Face it...building is grungy work.

Theme Challenge - Soul Scrappers

The challenge was to create a layout using stamps. I used the Stampin' Up! set "Lovely as a Tree" on vanilla cardstock. I first used several colors of stamp pads with my brayer. The pictures were made a couple of years ago at one of our timeshare visits. Heather and Billy enjoyed the archery equipment.
