Catch me in Scrapbooking and Beyond!

This month you can find one of my layouts in Scrapbooking and Beyond. This is one of my favorite scrap magazines. I get a lot of inspiration from it. I found mine at Fred Meyers but I have seen them at JoAnn's also. Take a peek and see my "Bucket List" layout on a 2-page spread!

Teen Room! Too Cute!

We have finally got Jovanna's room ready. I still have a few things to put away in her room but for the most part it is done. I had so much fun creating this room. It was like creating art and I am so proud of how it turned out. I would like to eventually get her a black nightstand and dresser to match her new bed, but we can pick those things up later. Wow! It looks too, too cute!

Here's a shot of the lights off and just the way cool new light on!

Here's a few other details...

Of course, you know who that is, right? She's a Twilight freak! She thinks if she can get a picture of Michael Jackson and a few horse pictures up then it will be perfect!

A teen room!

I am now tackling Jovanna's room. She had all these plans for these very strange color combinations and I feel bad, but I had to trump her. I found a picture of this very cool teen room in an IKEA book and showed it to her. I used every bit of enthusiasm and tempted her with the purchase of some new things to fill the room to get her to agree. I think it is going to be sooooo cool! We have three colors on the walls. There is this really nice lavendar, a sweet pink and a hot pink. I just got done painting the walls. So, the idea here is the room will be decorated with purples, pinks and black. I bought her a new black sleigh bed, a furry pink lamp, new pink/black/white bedspread, curtains in pink and purple beads that will hang down from the curtains, and lots of little fun decorations. I think it is going to be way cool. She is 11 and entering into her teen years so I am hoping that this will be "cool" for a number of years to come. I will post some pictures soon. We will put carpet in very soon and then we can set-up her new things.
