My Scrap Room

Even though my room is not yet finished...nearly...I thought I would take a few photos and put them up here.
This is the tidiest couple of areas!!! Lol!! Not that much more to do but I'm short on time these days. Where does that time go??
This first pic is of my new desk, drawers etc I bought from Arnold's Scrapbooking at Rothwell. I love this furniture! I've labelled most of the drawers so I can just look along and find what I need. Still a few more to do in that area.

This is a shot of the curtains which I bought in the kids section of The Pottery Barn when I was in Dubai. I totally love them especially the valance!!

By the way, don't you just love my chandelier sticker? Have heaps more stuff to put on the walls yet!

My Prima flowers have their own rack. I have so, so many that I don't have room for them all. Lol!!

A couple of cupboards I use for storage.

When I'm all done I will have a table for the sole purpose of having my tools, sewing machine, slice etc on so I will use them!!!! My printer and computer are to the right of my desk so I can just skim across the floor on my chair.

Hope you like what I have done...I do!!

Some to Share

These are a couple of challenges for Scrapboutique. Check out their site here: http://www.scrapboutique.com.au/
This one was to use yellow and make it about something to make you smile/happy.
This next one was to use flowers from our stash and not to open any new packets. Hence the name Stash Stompers.

The Play Date Cafe

The challenge at Play Date Cafe: http://theplaydatecafe.blogspot.com/ was to use these colours.
This is what I made.

The Shabby Tea Room

I loved doing this challenge this week...we could use all my favourite bits and pieces!!
We had a tic-tac-toe diagram to use and we could do any three in a row but I managed to use all nine criteria. Lots to put on one card.

The Color Room #49

A little bit excited this week as I've been asked to be a RDA on the Color Room site for the next four weeks! A pretty big honour as there is some seriously fantastic talent over there.

I did a card for this week.

OMG!!!!! It's been.........

.....a long while since I have blogged!! I've been home from my holiday since 16th February but seem to be still in "holiday mode"!! My mojo has gone up the creek and I'm having Nana naps nearly every day. I think yesterday was the first day I've stayed awake...lol!!! I've just returned home after having a full morning at the beauty parlour...a birthday present!! I had an hour's massage, pedi and facial and now I really do feel like having a nap!!

I had such a great time while I was away I thought I'd share a few pics.

My gorgeous No. 1 son and I at a shops centre.

 Gorgeous DIL.
Darling GS

A view from their apartment

The Burj Al Arab...the only 6 star hotel. You can't go in unless you are staying there or have a reservation for dinner etc. The Burj Khalifa in the background...the tallest building in the world!

Have a card class tonight so am hoping it will bring my mojo back!!!!
