Paper Issues "Seas the Day" with October Afternoon! *multiple entries found here*


Are you playing along with the current link party at Paper Issues? This one is called "Seas the Day" and the sponsor is October Afternoon. Yay! I will be posting multiple entries in this blog post. But first....


You can click that link above to play along!

Here is what I came up with so far, and I have to say that even though you ARE allowed to use old projects, I never do. I made these two layouts in the last couple days and plan to make more. First of all, this issue allows you to link up anything pool/beach/summer/vacation/swimming related and's summer! All we do is swim and go to the beach and have fun all summer long so that's right up my alley. And two, I just ordered the two new summer collections from Paper Issues, Simple Stories Summer Vibes and Crate Paper's Poolside. Perfect! I was going to play with them anyway so how perfect is that?

Purging, rearranging, reorganizing the CRAFT ROOM!


As anyone who follows me on You Tube can tell you, my craft room  has gone through a lot of changes over the last couple years. I am forever redecorating, purging, rearranging and reorganizing. And I love it! Over the past week hubby just tore out my closet and put in a new shelf and almost all of my cubes, bought more cubes, put them together, bought a few more for outside my was a PROJECT. It literally gave me anxiety but it's all good. Now. lol *whew* Care for some photos?

From this angle, not too much has changed. I did smoosh together my Cricut cartridges (on the left) to make room for some decorations and books that had to be relocated. Other than that, things are basically the same here.

Here is the view from just slightly to the left...those bears and books were on some cubes on the opposite side of the room that are now in my closet, the books were in the closet but there was no longer room. The other decorations were also on the cubes on the other side…

"Mist-er Fix-It" Link party for Paper Issues! (layout entry) **UPDATE**



Thank you for stopping by my blog today! I have a layout to share with you that I'm entering into the Paper Issues Link Party. The issue is called "Mist-er Fix-It".  I'm providing the link below so that you can play along with me, if you'd like!

I am working on depleting my stash. I have to say, I don't think I'm EVER going to use it all. And, by the way, the minute I sell some things on e bay I'm going to buy the entire Summer Vibes collection because I have to have it. Which is probably why my stash never goes down. I want it all! Anyway, the items that I used in this layout are all super random. And yes, by the way, I did ask my husband if it was ok if I used that nutty photo of him on my blog. He SO doesn't care, really. lol This photo of my hubby and son was taken at The Lazy Dog, which is a restaurant that …

I LOVE printer's trays!

Oh how I love printer's trays! Have you tried them? Several companies make them and they are easy to find. The price varies depending on if you want them 'raw' or finished, large or brand or generic. I have tried the unfinished ones to save some money but really, I find that I prefer the ones that are already painted. I just like the effect so much more and, let's be honest, it saves some time. This printer's tray is my all time favorite. I've made quite a few but this one just does it for me. It's currently hanging on my scrapbook room wall and it makes me smile every time I walk in the door. I chose to print all of the photos in black and white, and then add subtle pastel colors from the Maggie Holmes/Crate Paper Open Book collection. That collection made me crazy! In a good way, I mean, lol! I bought ALL of it and I talked about it so much that two of my friends bought me nearly every bit of it as well so I had it in triplicate. I don't…
