The Bling-a-lings Layout

They had a challenge for Labor Day weekend on the Cricut Circle group. What am I doing this weekend? SCRAPPING!!!  My hubby went to Northern Michigan with some buddies for a couple of days so I decided to spend some time in my scrap room and try to get caught up on a couple of layouts. I am still working on May of this year so this layout is of my granddaughter, Erica, and her friends getting ready to go to the Senior Prom. Their dresses had such beautiful colors that I decided not to use pattern paper for this one. The solid color paper is textured, just does not show well in the pictures.  I used Design Studio and Cricut's Tie-The-Knot cartridge for the dress and shoes and Songbird cartridge for the title. I then added some flowers and lots of bling to the layout. Wish it showed up better in the pics.

My Granddaugher is in the Hot Pink gown.
Even the backs of their gowns were beautiful.
 These girls are such a beautiful and fun group of girls.



Not sure I like the white on the gown bottom... but, it is done now so it stands as is.

I had my scraproom in the famlily room downstairs until yesterday. I decided I do not like being away from the main part of the house. I spent yesterday moving my stuff upstairs to the small bedroom. I had it in that room awhile ago and thought I would like it in the larger room... NOT!  O-well... Anyway... here are pictures of my scraproom - at least as of this minute.

This is the main work area of the room.

This is how my paper is stored.  I didn't have room for all of my paper to be brought upstairs. As I use the paper upstairs, I will bring the other up and replenish.

This is how I store most of my embellishments.  They are hung on my Clip-it-up in categories.

This is how I store my Stickles, glitter and Flock.  This is a cork board with velcro.

This is storage for misc items such as flowersoft, ribbon, glossy accents, etc.

This is where I store my Bows and Flowers.

This is where my Cuttlebug embossing folders and other items are stored.  It is a shoe holder.

Under my table I have plastic storage bins with ribbon, chalk, ink, adhesives, etc. in the drawers.

This is how I store my Cricut Cartridges... They are in the top drawer which makes them very easy to get to.  Right now there are 78 carts stored here in alpha order.

Well, there you have my scrap space.
