I've been trying to finish up some projects before we leave for our vacation & this is just one of the things I've done that I am very proud of. These drawer units are from Ikea & they work perfect for storing chipboard alphabets along with the bigger alphabets by Heidi Swapp, etc. I painted the outsides black & then applied Junkitz pattern paper to the front of the drawers. I then used my Round-A-Bout Sizzlits to cut out the alphabets in pink Bazzill cardstock. I may add some more embellishments to them down the road.....still undecided about that.
Here's a close-up view of them. I was originally only going to do a capital alphabet per drawer, but then I decided to do both upper & lowercase & I like the way they turned out. You can see more pictures of my drawer units by clicking here: Ikea Altered Drawers.
Last week, I did this layout of my granddaughter wearing my Crocs. She thought they were just the coolest thing when she saw them & walked all over the house with them on. I wonder if they make them in her size? :) I wanted to pull the color of the Crocs out in this layout. I think I did a pretty good job with it, don't you? I used Prima pattern paper, Bazzill cardstock, Heidi Swapp Chipboard Alphabets, Sizzlits Round-A-Bout Alphabet, Making Memories Tiny Alphabet Stickers, Prima Tissue Flowers, Rhinestones & an arrow which I inked with blue & black ink.
Here is another layout I just did this week using a picture of 3 of my sisters & I. I've scrapped this picture before, but when I got these Kaleidoscope papers & diecuts, I just knew I had to scrap it again. I also used some of the Prima Tissue flowers on this layout, too. Love those Primas :)
The other day, I went to Michaels since I had a 40% off coupon & purchased this....the Rob & Bob Slab. I just LOVE these papers & it also comes with some stickers & diecuts.
I'm also in the process of making a picture frame for my Mom.....when I get it finished, I'll post a picture of it. I just hope she likes it. I'm putting a photo of her, Karen & Jimmy in it that was taken back in 2000, so I'm honestly not sure how she is going to feel about it.
Tomorrow, Cassie leaves for Traverse City again for 2 weeks. She'll also be going to Chicago & she's really excited about that. Then when she returns, school starts back up on September 5th, my birthday of all days.....YAY! :)
Time to go finish laundry so Cassie has clean clothes to take with her tomorrow.
Have a great weekend,
