Check it out!

I'm baaaaaack! It's been totally insane here, but we are one step closer to having a REAL house! CARPET!!!! Oh, sweet carpet. Lovely, fluffy, new, pristine carpet. Love it!

On to more exciting things!

If you haven't seen the new challenge posted over on the Noel Mignon Challenge blog, be sure to check it out. Here is the inspiration photo I chose to use! I'm not much of a plaid person, I must admit, but I'm liking that kick of red in there with those neutrals and pale blue!



Anywho, here is my layout for this week's challenge. I loved the inspiration colors that Greta came up with! What an awesome idea!



This layout is the first in a great big series of layouts I'm gonna be doing about the new house. And since we'll be working on this place until the day we die, that's gonna be one big series!

I used the Sweet Sue Kit (hurry, only 12 left!) along with some goodies from my own stash. I LOVE that calendar journaling tag - what a great base for a title, huh?



I have been on an accordion flower binge lately, and decided to make a banner with them instead this time. I used the Basic Grey Adrian paper from the kit for those, and the star pins (minus the pokey part!) for the tops. Be sure you use a glue gun on these, they get a little wild!



So go on and see what you come up with! Me? I'm gonna go lie on the new carpet. And stroke it. And profess my love. Squishy squishy carpet.....
