A place to share all the things I love!

Scrapbook Frame July 5, 2012

My grand daughter Dianna was over for the day last week for the first time at my new apartment.  She just loved the apartment and how I have it decorated.  She will be 15 in September and she told me that when she is 18, she wants a place just like this and she was joking around that when she is old enough to live in Senior housing, she wanted to live right next door to me!  😀  She was just to cute and she surely made this Grammie’s heart happy at how much she loves my place, and how much fun she had.

I have a scrapbook frame in my kitchen, that I have a picture of on my old blog, elainemwilson.blogspot.com that many of you may remember me posting.  I like that one so much that I had an extra frame that I had picked up thrifting so when Diana told me how much she loved mine and how she would like one for her room, I told her about the extra one I had and would she like to make one.  Well, I got a great big “Could we!?!?!” and we spent the afternoon printing pictures and designing her frame.  She still wants to add a picture that she has at home to the left corner.  It turned out cute and she was so very happy with it.  I also showed her Pinterest and she is hooked on it too!  I spend hours on it….I love it so!!!  I love all the great idea’s and free patterns on it.

I am busy preparing for my stamping class and I am very thankful to be in the nice cool air conditioning.  Have a great day!  Elaine

Man it is hot out side!  And I was out and about two different times today running around doing errands.  I am glad to be inside, in the air conditioning relaxing now.  I have had a headache for hours and should have taken a nap, but I decided to keep plugging away at things and go to bed early tonight.

This scrapbook stand was another one of my spray painting projects.  I am doing the craft/living room area in aqua and red.  I love that color combination together!  It goes good with my “50’s” table that has red chairs.  I made this scrapbook page of Valentina last week.  The designer paper I printed off the computer and is the Enchanted Paper off of the Sale-A-Bration CD.  I love, love, this paper and you will be seeing more of it, and other sheets from that pack as I printed off 20 sheets to make things for around my house.  It has the aqua and red in it and goes so nicely with the look I am going for.

I hope you enjoyed the picture of  “Our little Princess” !  Elaine
