More layouts

I had a card class this morning. We did summer themed cards. I'll post them next week after my last class.

I've been sick the last couple of days so I only have a couple layouts. Hopefully, I'll get something done tomorrow. I hate being sick and unable to work.

I rec'd a package of new Chloe Marie from Daisy D's today. It is even prettier in real life!!

Pat just got the new BasicGrey Euphoria, in, too.

Here are some layouts:

K&Co, Bo Bunny, American Crafts, vintage Bingo game & tickets. Those yellow accents are cut on my Cricut. Have I mentioned lately how much I like that thing? ;)

Sassafras Lass Robotics. This was an assignment at Peek. Fun stuff!

The font is Technique Tuesday Boulder. I colored it in with watercolor pencils and used a Dove Blender to blend it.

The stamps are 50% off at Peek!

Older KI Memories. I ran the bottom piece through my Cuttlebug. Also, some Pink Paislee. I think this is my 4th or 5th in a series of "Life with Katrina".

My Cosmo :)

I realized the other day that some of my favorite layouts are made with Cosmo Cricket. I have others, but these are my current favs.

Our new floor

I couldn't stand the smell of the dog pee in our living room carpeting anymore. So, we ripped up the carpeting. I had no specific game plan at the time, I just knew I couldn't stand the dog pee anymore. I've never been a fan of carpeting. It always seems dirty to me.

We priced tile and found it to be more expensive than we wanted to pay at this time. After all, we need to go to Legoland. ;) We decided to paint the cement and buy a box or two of tile a month until we have enough for the room. We figure it will take about a year to have enough boxes.

Removing the carpeting is the easy part. It's the removing of the tack strips, filling in the holes from the nails and removing the glue left from the carpet pad that is the messy yucky part.

After all that was done, we gave the floor two coats of a light colored latex paint. This was not fun for me to do as my arm/shoulder still hurts. Then we kind of sponge painted a darker shade on top of the light shade. When that was dry, we dipped a paint stirring stick in some black paint and kind of threw it around. The kids loved that part.

Once all the paint was dry, we put on 2 coats of glossy polyurethane. It's a shiny floor!!

It's certainly not a traditional type of floor but I like it and most importantly, IT'S CLEAN!!

I think my bright red leather sectional will look pretty cool sitting on it.

And, the whole thing cost about a hundred bucks.

I thought I posted this but I guess not. All Bo Bunny. Stamps are Technique Tuesday.

Daisy D's and my Cricut. I'm having fun with that machine. ;)

A layout for my LSS, Pages in Progress. Bo Bunny papers. Font is Quickutz Rockstar.

My arm/collarbone is feeling a bit better. I still can't lift it too high or put weight on it. I'm getting really tired of sleeping on my left side. :P I guess since it's feeling a bit better it's not broken. That's a relief.

Thanks for all your well wishes. I miss you, too, Hilary!!
