Update on our house.

Happy Monday Everyone!
So as some of you know our home got badly damaged from the April 16th Tornado that hit North Carolina, Well we finally got word from our contractor on Sunday the 17th that we can start moving back into our house! My husband and I were super excited to finally be back into our house. I just wanted to share pictures of my new scrapbooking room its a mess in here but its getting there.
Here are some pictures of my scrap room after the tornado...

These pictures are from my scrap room in our temporary home on base. These pics were taken while I was packing my room to move back into our house. 

Ok, Now onto my New Scrapbooking Room! I Love it! I got to pick out a new wall color so this was a tricky task since I've always had white walls or tan since that was the color of ALL the walls in our house when we bought it back in 2009. So we hit up Lowes to look for paint samples to give to our contractor, I knew I wanted a soft blue, well that's what I thought so I picked out the color I liked. A couple of weeks later we ended back @ lowes for something for the house and I ended up in the pain section again and for some reason I kept going back to the Pink section and I saw the "Prom Pink" and I wasn't to sure but I took the sample with me and showed it to my hubby and he was like "go for it" so I did it! LOL... At first I was not too happy with it cause I thought it was too Pink but now that my furniture is in here I love it! Its messy but I <3 my room! I hope to get it together quick so I can get busy and finish the projects I started before moving here.

I missed my huge closet!!!

Once I'm done organizing and putting things away I will try and make a video tour of my room.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!

My Pink Stamper Design Team Call!

I'm so excited about the design team call from Robyn over at My Pink Stamper!!! The challenge was to make a card, scrapbook page or any other project using your favorite Cricut Cartridge and also using Orange, Turquoise, Brown & Green.

I wasn't sure what I was going to make till I started to pack up my scrapbooking room since we are moving back to our house (finally its done after the tornado damage repairs!) I found my bag with all my acrylic albums, In there I found a couple of my mini deco albums. I have been wanting to make picture frame hangers with them since I have so many, but didn't know were they had ended up when we moved in to out temporary house. Well I ended up using them to make these picture hangers one for each of my dogs, I four furry babies. The paper I used is from DCWV The Pets Stack. 
Here is how my project came together.

Each of the mini albums contain 6 clear pages they are 3x3

I made holes on all four corners with my big bite. I then traced each one of them on different pattern paper

Then I cut them all out added double sided tape and added them to the clear pages

Here are all 24 pages

I added 10 mm jump rings to hold them together

These are the Alphabet stickers I used. The Browns, green & tan colored stickers are from DCWV Home collection: Adornments. I used a piece of CTMH cardstock: Desert Sand for the letters since they are see-through. The other stickers are Puffy Stickers I got a couple of years ago at the 100 yen store when I was living in Japan.

I put each of there names in the first frame. Panchito, Daisy, Smiley & Sophie

For the boys names I used pop dots on every other letter.

Next I chose what pictures I wanted to use.

All pictures were printed at 2x2

Then I cut the pictures to the shape I wanted. I used punches & Coluzzle's

I used Sticky Dots for all the pictures and for the pictures mats.

Here are my four frame hangers with all  the pictures...

The Cricut Cartridge I used for this challenge is Paper Pups!!! I LOVE this cart!

I used my iRock to add some bling!

Here are the images I used & sizes...
Orange "Puppy Love" .75
Tan & Brown "Slepping Dog" .50
Green and Turquoise "Love Heart" 1.50
Orange and Turquoise "Love Heart" 1.25
Both "Bath Dogs" 1.25
"Dog in Stocking" 1.50
"Love" in the Brown .75
"Best Friend" .75
"Crown" 1.25

I added pop dots to all the images except for "Puppy Love" and the extra "Love" in the brown.

Ok, after much work its done and I LOVE the way it came out!!!
