Before and After pics

My scrap area is not the most glamorous room in our house, it's in the unfinished basement with plastic covered insulated walls!'s my space to use how I want to i TRY not to complain. I decided I needed to reorganize and for me that involves ripping almost everything out and starting over. so here are some pics that actually are kinda embarrassing but hey I love some good before and after pics so I thought you might like them too!

And here are the afters..... it's still not "cute" but it's better for sure!!!

a few cards....

Okay so May is almost over and I've hardly posted a thing! Shame on me!
I've been working on cleaning up my room (pics to come)
and scrapping our Disneyland trip (from last year hehe)
I think I've put off doing the trip for fear it wouldn't turn out perfect, pretty lame reason to not do it!!! I guess I should do our wedding pics next!

Here are 2 cards I made for birthdays this month.
I absolutely love my new American Crafts stamp set! 
"a little birdie told" sentiment can go with anything.

This picture is so pathetic! but the power was out and we were taking a walk to the mailbox to mail it so it was a dark pic or nothing!!!

The Pink Stamper challenge page

Here is my first challenge from The Pink Stamper. I so loved doing all of these, I wish I could have done all 10 but time run out.  This challenge was to do something brown and pastel. I know the flowers in the corner are a bit brighter, but the back ground is a nice pastel blue and I really love how this turned out. It was such a simple page and I kept trying to add more to it but it just didn't need anything else.

Challenge #2

This challenge was to create something new that you have never done. I know it's lame but I had never made a baby card, so here is my first. Okay a I think I just lied =) as I typed that I just realized that I've made baby shower invitations. But I honestly didn't remember that until just now. Oh well, I really like how this one turned out. I used a mistake brown scallop from the last page I had made and a left over elephant from a different page and the scraps. So this was really fun to see how it all came together.

Another Challenge

This challenge by The Pink Stamper was to create kid page. 
(NSD challenge #3)
I love these pictures! I look so happy, and I usually don't love pictures of myself (who does?) My little guy was finally get big enough for me to hold him and it was so wonderful!

I also LOVE this new stamp I got, and I'm glad I've used it. Isn't it darling?!

NSD Challenge

Here's my version of The Pink Stampers NSD challenge #5.
 This challenge was a sketch page.

I took this opportunity to work some more on my littlest guys baby pages. These are fun to scrap now, but there was way to much going on back then to even think about doing them. Three weeks in the NICU and daily milk delivery trips with an hour drive time, and 2 very active toddlers! I remember people asking me if I spent all day at the hospital with my baby and I thought seriously he doesn't know when I'm gone and my other kids do. Don't get me wrong I would have loved to stay with him more but they are the ones that "needed" me.
These pictures are from the day we brought him home. He was so small in that car seat it didn't even seem safe enough for him. We didn't even have the bassinet ready for him yet, so the first night he slept in a laundry basket next to my bed. It was the only safe thing I could think of.
