I went to Ikea about 6 weeks ago and bought some frames. I designed some work for the frames and one piece was so big I had to order it from Shutterfly. Yesturday, it finally came. I brought it into my bedroom so excited to get into the frame. I grabbed the frame, which had been sitting safely behind our dresser, opened it up and got ready to put the picture it. The frame was broken! The corner looked like a termite had eaten it. I also had two broken frames in the garage that David and Christian knocked off the walls. I was not going to return those, but since the one frame had problems without our even touching, I decided that they were all going back.
We drove to Ikea and exchanged the frames. On the way out the door, I stopped by the As Is section (my favorite) They had a basket with pillows and a comforter that had been used as display. The pillows were $5.00 each and the comforter was $10.00. The comforter is faux down, but for $10.00 and since it is washable, unlike down, who am I to complain. I also found a pillow case in the set I am try to build up. So far I have a fitted sheet and pillow case.
Elemental Scraps is getting a new look! The shop is not quite open, but should be up and running later today. The forum, blog and gallery are all on line
Here are two layouts I did using the April Collab Kit Spring's Hope. I will put links in later today when the store is open.
We were having a discussion about fairy layouts in the forum and since I don't have daughters, I did a fairy layout with my cat Tiglet.
I went to my friend Meagan's baby shower on Saturday.
I used Daisy Fantaisy by Liz Thompson & Impressions of Peace, the March Scrapbook Graphics Collab kit for this layout. The curl template is by Helen Jole at NSDIB
This layout uses Back Spin and Bracketeering 2 by Rachel Martin which will be available in the next couple of hours at Elemental Scraps. I posted a thread begging for some bracket stitching in the forum and Rachel created Bracketeering and Bracketeering 2 in response. Thanks Rachel.
