In a great mood today! Seems spring has sprung! Or at least Mother Natures is cutting us a little slack before her and Jack Frost get back together and do the wild thing and we end up with several feet of snow and ice.......whatever the reason......I LOVE IT!!! Sun is out, birds are chirping, I have a mentally unstable squirrel out on my porch rolling aound on the kids basketball......maybe it's highly caffienated too?? It's certainly a sight!!
With my sudden burst of enr4e3gy I feel the need to spring clean...which is totally insane cuz I hate cleaning to begin with!! I think looking at all of these DIY and Funky Junk type of blogs lately has inspired (corrupted) me to take more pride in our home. Not taht I didn't before! But when I get an idea in my head I want it done NOW!! And face it.....a house redo just doesn't happen over night. Only in my head....lol. I could probably start with throwing out some of my clutter....but I may "need it" one day!!!! I am convinced that some day one of the kids will have a need for 50 million empty canisters and pringles containers, and when they come home with that note from school....buddy, I am on it!!!
Anyone else do that? Cmon....truth!!!!
Yesterday I sat down and played with my new Pebbles Tree House collection......I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEE the colors!!! So bright and fun!!! I had a plan when I sat down....but I went off another direction while scrapping (glue fumes....I'm certain!!!) I wanted to play around with the Design Dollies challenge this week to create something with "Love" as the topic. So I decided on Bob and I......cuz, after all....we do love one another....most days.....lol. My original plan was to do a tic tac toe kinda thing.....I was going to use chipboard "X"s and I cut the photos in circles and they were gonna be the "O"s.
Cept......I took a wrong turn at Albuquerque!! (Yes I grew up watching Bugs Bunny!!)
I also played with the idea of actually stitching.....but I wasn't quite motivated enough for that .....but I got to play with all of the yummy die cuts and chippy pieces in the kit and I love how it all came together.....with the exception of the circle photos.....lol
Everything except the alphas are from Pebbles......and I am not sure where the brown alpha is from......the red is Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type.......which I totally love and want in every single color in the history of Tiny Type!!! So I decided to play around with the Tiny Type and Chippy bits...those die cuts are really PERFECT for cards and tags......or lazy scrappers......lol. I have some left and I am going to make a thank you card later tonight for a friend :)
Here are some close ups :)
Also entering this over at Scrapfit for the color workout challenge of : Green, Yellow, Orange, Red, White.
Thanks for looking!! Have an AMAZING Thursday! We have a 3 day weekend coming....WOOT!!!
