Simplicity






Happy Memorial Day! I completed a layout today and wanted to share it here. It looks really simple, and you're right, it is. But, since I had the two boys in my scrap room every time I worked on it, it took FOREVER to complete. It's just photos and cardstock, but I worked on it for probably three days. It's almost too simple for my taste, if that's possible. I love the photos though - check out Matt's face with the peanut butter all over it! And his eyes look so blue. That's my little turkey!

Posting a few pics of my scrap room - it's not 100% complete, but it's close. I need to change out the blinds and touch up the paint in a couple of places. This room is my retreat. I lose myself in here and don't even realize that the time is passing. I've got six work stations plus a table that holds my computer, printer and scanner. And since the room was originally a game room, there's a big bar with lots of cabinets, drawers and shelves. I use the bar sink to wash my hands and paint brushes, and I fill the mini fridge with Diet Pepsi. The only problem is that I don't get up here often enough. A couple of times a week, usually. I'm hoping to spend a lot more time up here this summer, though. Wish me luck!!
