Bought a new Cricut Cartridge "Pretty Pennants" and I love it! I got it on sale at Micheal's for $19.99 Gotta love that! I don't buy very many carts but when I do, I try to make sure that they are ones that I am really going to use and this one surely fits the bill!

Aside from the fact that I am unpacking more of my supplies, I think that the most recent addition to my scrap space is the skirt and glass table top for my crafting table. Now I can hide supplies down there and no one will know...well, not from the front anyways!
My space hasn't changed that much but as I work in it I am finding out what works and doesn't work as far as placement goes. Love the evolution of it all. One of these days I will take pics of the other side of the room. The computer sits in the other corner and there is a closet along the other wall. Since we don't have a closet in our room our clothes are in it but hopefully soon.....it will house more scrapbooking supplies. A girl can dream!

Still working on Pumpkin patch pics! Love these paper pumpkins from Making Memories, I picked them up awhile back at Tuesday Morning. The flowers are Prima, I bought them on clearance at Micheals. Gotta love a good deal. Just like my LO from yesterday I used some Scenic Route paper that I have had for years! One of these days I need to go through my stash and really be ruthless and actually get rid of some stuff, but it is just so hard for me to part with scrapbook product! I wonder if I am alone in this..I can imagine that I am not! I used to buy new product that I loved but was afraid to use it because I was saving it for "that perfect LO", years down the line...I still have that paper and wonder why I ever bought it! Thankfully that phase of my scrapbooking psychosis only lasted for a little while and I quickly got over it! Now I use whatever strikes my fancy because hey, if I use it... I can always buy more!
Since I had the fall products out I figured I might as well continue on the fall theme! I pulled out some of my favorite Scenic Route paper and crafted this LO. I still have so many pieces of Scenic Route, I was so sad when they went out of business. I had fun with these pics! I love the one with my hubby and the flowers, I also opted to use color selection, which I don't do very often. Since it was pretty early when I took the picture of the LO this morning the light was not great and the LO did not photograph as well as I had hoped.

I was actually able to get two LOS done but one had all of Evan's classmates so I didn't post that one. I have been in such a busy state lately, between work, house and school work for the kids it has been difficult for me to find the energy to scrap. Sunday, however, I made myself sit down with the kids and create! Evan had fun with the caterpillar (my Cricut) , Sophia is working on her own album and hubby watched football in the living room..the perfect creative storm! I had a fresh batch of pictures and I was off!

I have always loved fall. I took these back in September. I have added a few items since then but I have been so horribley updating my blog lately that I figured I had better get moving! I love this red table and will try to get a better shot of it next time. It is a great place to merchandise my holiday items! Come Christmas time it will house my village.

Oh happy day, I discovered that there was a LSS in Chico. I am so thrilled! Apparently it has been open since June but I have been so preoccupied with work, the house search and the move that I had no clue. I hadn't been to a LSS in what feels like years! I stopped in on Thursday before work & picked up some Graphic 45 pp & stickers. I love them!

The kids and I had a fun little photo shoot on Monday. Fia had a couple of girlfriends over and they got all gussied up & we went out into our property & took some fun shots. I am still working on editing them but I posted a few to share!

I was able to scrap a little last night after I put the kiddos in bed. I really need to start scrapping on a regular basis. Now that I have my room a little more put together hopefully I will be able to scrap a little bit every day. Gone are the long chunks of time that I could devote to scrapping. I am going to focus on getting a little done here and there, when I can spare a bit of time.
I had fun with this LO. I colored the cb frame with a white water color crayon & added the blue on top. I used a scrap of mm star pp and the bugs are mm as well. I chose the bugs because I really don't have to many boy embellishments & the bugs' color palette seemed to go well enough. I do call both the kids my love bug so it wasn't to far of a reach! LOL
Have a great week!

Here are three of the newest members of our little family. We adopted Lola from the SPCA and she is the sweetest little girl ever! Lola and Belle get along pretty well. I will catch them sleeping together , so sweet! We haven't had a cat in years and she is a wonderful addition to the family!

I have started putting my scrapbook room together. It is so nice to have a place to create again. I still have a long way to go with the unpacking but I am thrilled to have a start! I still have some stuff at the other place and there are still things that I need to find. I love that I can now have a friend over to scrap. There's plenty of room for two, maybe even three.

We have been working and trying to get the new place ready. I have posted some before and afters.
The house is a work in progress. We only took one week off to get the house move it ready and we still have boxes everywhere! My scrapbook room is starting to take shape & I hope to post pics on Monday.
Have a great weekend all!
