AUG 16/11 A Work In Progress

Last year I decided that I had had enough of how my office looked. Peachy walls, dark drapes & best of all Teddy Bear border. My hubby kindly took down all the shelving, painted my walls IKEA white (it was called "natural") and purchased 2 new tables & 2 hanging cupboards. He installed all of this & I moved in, scrappy stuff & all. But that is the way it stayed.
This week, I made new drapes from the great fabric, I found last year. Ed hung a new wooden drapery rod & I even completed some framed wall art.  This was soooooo easy - anyone can do it!
I used my Cricut with a couple of cartridges - Home Accents & Serende. I use 4 patterned papers from DCWV (Die Cuts With A View) as the background in Teal Blue, cut leaf & floral shapes in a sharp green from DCWV, branches & stems in Bitter Chocolate Bazzill, words are cut from Dotted Swiss Bazzill & I found the frames at Michaels for $11.00 each - SCORE!
If you don't have a Cricut - You can find a friend who does, or any other personal diecutting system, handcut or purchase precut pieces or come see me at ALL ABOUT SCRAPBOOKS & MORE (in our NEW LOCATION) & I will cut it all for you.

Once I get everything back in order (SCRAP ROOM DISASTER - STAY OUT) I will take a couple of progress picks & show off my scrap room. TFL - and let me know what you think.
