Cousin Nina

Hidy Ho Fellow Crafters! Hope this Sunday Evening finds you well. I have been busy all week and all weekend with house projects. I got a wild hair and have decided to paint the cabinets. I have started with the island in the kitchen. After doing some research and decorating blogs I decided to spray paint it. Well the weather was gorgeous when the project started so i got it out into the garage and what do you know good ole unpredictable Tennessee weather went down hill. So now it has been stuck in the garage in pieces with nothing but primer on. AND taking up mine and hubby's parking space (he has been very nice about it, let me just add that in here!) SO... because once I get an idea in my head it is very hard to sit still. I was planning on waiting to see how that project went before I went on to the next but since it has been too cold and wet to spray paint, I started on daughters bathroom cabinets. sanded, primed and painted !! woo hoo.. it looks gorgeous laying in the hallway floor (the doors)I need them to cure for 24 hours before i hang the doors back on. ANYWAY...... Here is another scrap page from my scrappy weekend. This is my cousin Nina who graduated this past May. She is such a sweet, loving and beautiful girl! She is now attending MTSU on a softball scholarship. Man that girl can play some ball. ALL of it, basketball, softball, volleyball. She has ALWAYS been active in ball since she could walk. I swear. This is a super simple layout. Just her two of her senior pics and her graduation invitation. The only thing I added was the leaves which were cut using the Cricut and I don't know which cart but I thinking Storybook. I totally HEART that cart!! In the meantime I went ahead and got started on my bathroom cabinets.. just sanding the doors so far. I am staining those so i had to sand much more than I did daughers cabinets. so I will busy with those this week and hopefully the weather will cooperate so I can get the island done SOON! I want my parking space back! Thanks for coming to visit today and I hope your week is FABULOUS!!! Cheers! ~Julie~

Scrap Page

HI YA!!! Happy Saturday. Hope you are enjoying the BEAUTIFUL weather today. So last weekend I went with the girls to Center Hill Lake and got a cabin for a scraptacular weekend. I have not scrapped in a while so it was realllllly nice to play. I got 14 pages done which I guess is pretty good. I would have liked to have gotten more done. This is a pic of my niece and grandbaby Logan. Logan LOVES to play on every one's cell phone, he could play with it for hours. Look at that little smile on his face. Hopefully my niece was watching him to make sure he did not make some crazy calls and rack up some charges!
I used some paper from CTMH and I cannot even remember what it is called. The title is 3 different type of letter stickers. Foam, Flock, and Felt. I swiped an ink pad on the cardstock to give it a wee bit of texture. Simple and Sweet. Well, I need to run for now, have a house full of people coming over tomorrow for daddy's birthday. Thanks for the visit!

So Proud of My Tiny Dancer

Hello and Happy Monday!!

I dont have any crafty goodness to share with you today. I do have some pics of my daughter's dance competition though. These pics were actually her last competition. I did not get any of the one we just had yesterday. This year is her first time doing a solo in competition. I have to say I absolutely LOVE it. It is fun and spunky and sassy! The dance is to Janice Joplin's Move Over.
I have always been a Janice Joplin fan so to get to watch my baby dance competitively to one of her song just makes it that much more fun. The middle pic is her trio (the other dancer is not in this particular pic) Grace is the one with her back to you. This dance is to a Rue Paul song called Looking Good and Feeling Gorgeous which is also so much fun.

We were in Alabama for the competition this weekend. Man it was a looooong one. We did not get home until Midnight then had to get up in 5 hours for school (Grace) and work (me and hubs) so worth it though. she has a blast and I am so proud to watch her. Anywho, I am running off this coming weekend to a scrapbook getaway with 12 other fun girls ... I can hardly wait.. So I HOPE to have lots to share with you next week. Thanks for the visit!!
