Feeling inspired in my new scrapbook studio.....

I finally have my new scrapbooking studio together..... And I had the chance to PLAY!!

Today, Steve and I went to Pier 1 Imports and purchased a lime green "papa chair" The base is a cherry wood color and the cushion is a micro-suede and the same color of green as in this layout. I stopped by "Hancock Fabrics" this afternoon so I could find a cute black/white polka-dot fabric to make some throw pillows for our new chair. I found some beautiful silk blk/wht polka-dot fabric to create my little pillows.

I wanted this chair for Steve. He loves to sit in my scrapbooking studio when I create and watch TV....so I knew this would be the perfect place for him to chill and relax comfortably :-)

<----I created this layout last night with inspiration to create an all black and white layout. I pulled all of my black and white products out and layed them across my table......making quite the mess...lol :) By the end I decided I wanted to cover my white background with my new pretty green "Hambly Screen Print" Transparency. To balance out the green background I used a couple of 7 Gypsies' Lime Green Tags.....I love those tags ;-)

For my journaling area.....lol...listen to me..."For my journaling area....haha" Okay..for real... lol.

I cut a large frame from black cardstock and used that to handwrite in white pen my journaling. I was inspired to create this layout from a moment last week that left both Steve and I smiling.......... Steve and I met for lunch last Thursday at a favorite seafood restaurant called, "High Tides" ......the owner approached us as we chatted and asked if we were newlyweds....this made us laugh and we told her... "No, actually we will be celebrating our 8th anniversary this August. I know in my heart that our love is real, but it is neat to have an outsider witness what makes us......us.

Sorry to be all mushy again...lol. It is just sort of that way for me lately...lol. I guess I am happy and at peace.

And....Isn't that a good thing?!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!! I'll be back to post more pics of my scrapbook studio embellished ;-)

A work in progress........

I'm thrilled so share our new home. I know we have a lot to finish up, but I love how it is coming along so far.

The first picture is of my new scrapping-studio.
I've kind of kept it simple for the moment, as I have a lot of closet space in this room, so my ugly plastic storage carts are fitting perfectly in there, not messing with the "chi" of my room...lol.

As you can see here, I've gone with a mocha colored paint, paired with light pink and green.

So far, this space has been very inspiring and I'm really enjoying adding items to my shelves and getting everything just right :-)

I'm also sharing a pic of our new living and kitchen area. I love how the kitchen is open to the great room providing a GREAT entertaining space. {Yes, that's Steve in the pic holding his glass of wine. }

He is so sweet and when I arrived home from work tonight he had dinner on the grill outside, along with 2 glasses of wine on the bar area just waiting for me to come and relax with.
I really love the deck area off the dining room, the hickory hardwood flooring and curvy lines.
In the last 8 years we've lived in a loft type home where the outside was not accessable.
I love being able to open the slider and sit outside enjoying the fresh air. Ahhhh.... Or should I say....to drink the air....lol.

We plan on adding some nice patio furnature and a wall fountain for ambiance :-) Gotta have good ambiance...right?!?

I'm so happy to finally be in a place that I feel is home.

Home for good.

We are even talking more about starting our family here since we have the extra room and the space is so perfect.
I know both of our families would agree that it's time....lol.
We've been married this year 8 years. Little ones are definitely next in our lives. Now that I feel I have a home that I'm firmly planted in.......I can actually think about that. Scary as it is, I cannot wait to become a mommy.

Have a wonderful week and I'll be back to post some projects I'm working on.
