Dreamin' Welcome Banner

I have already showed you the banner I made for myself using some retired papers, but now it's time to show you the banners I made for my swap friends.  I used the Dreamin' paper pack.
I just love making these simple accordion folded flowers, so easy, but yet so cute.
I hope the girls liked them, cuz I sure do :)

More Studio J Convention Layouts

I last showed you the Studio J layout I made for our little swap.  Well, here are the layouts I received in return.  They turned out so great!  What fun :)

Here is the layout Rachel created using the Silhouette paper pack.  She chose to use some of our 'food' pics along with a photo from the Awards Banquet night when we were all spiffed up.
And Sheri used a Members Only exclusive paper pack.  How fitting for our 'food' pictures :)  It is all about the food, you know.
Want to know more about Studio J?  Just ask me, I'd be happy to tell you...

Studio J Convention Layout

Check out this Studio J layout I created!  I started out just using a pattern the website has all set up for me...
Then I added this banner of pennants along the bottom.  How, you ask?  Well, it was pretty easy once I figured it out!  I just added text boxes in different colors and played around with which ones were on top of each other.  It was fun =)

I created this layout for myself and then one for each of my girlfriends using their photos on the right hand page.  Studio J made it so simple for me to re-create pages for the other girls.  I just copied the original (it took a maximum of a couple of seconds) and then swapped out the two photos.  It just doesn't get much easier than that.  Then we decided that when we got the layouts back, we would add the "lumpy, bumpy" stuff to them.

Want to learn to do this Studio scrapping for yourself?  Just go to my website and click on the Studio J link OR let me know and we can do a one-on-one or a group class so I can teach you.

Yippee! New furniture...

I am excited!  My new furniture arrived this morning :)

When I moved into my new house, the former occupants left furniture for me.  While it was nice and it was comfortable, I really wanted some new stuff of my own.  I went furniture shopping and found just the right stuff for me - you know how it is, not sure just what you're looking for, but when you see it, you just know it was meant for you!  I ordered it and set up this morning as the delivery date for them to bring it to me.

Well, I had to get rid of my old stuff first.  while I was going to put in on Craig's List or something, I thought I'd try Facebook first.  Little did I know that within 5 minutes of having it posted, it was sold!  Very nice to not have to worry about getting rid of it, but a little bit of an inconvenience to do without for almost 2 weeks.
That's ok, I improvised!  Just look at the fancy recliner I got to use in the meantime =)  I had just put away my lawn furniture, so I went out to the garage and brought one in the house.  It is comfy, but just not the same...
Just look at how great it looks now!  It totally changes the look of the whole room.  I LOVE it!
Now, I am just awaiting the arrival of my girlfriends for a fun day of scrapbooking =)  It just doesn't get much better than this!
