Mayce Belle's 3rd Birthday!

I Can't believe mayce is 3! She had a lot of fun at her "luau" in the park party! I played with all these pictures on the editing software and took most of the color out! I love the effect!

Chair fix up

OK....I found this chair at a yard sale last weekend and I've been working on it all week. It was painted black and had the ugliest yellow fabric covering the seats. I mean banana yellow! So, I painted the frame white and scuffed it up. Then I bought this fabric, flowers and white ball trim at Jo Ann's. I put the diamond dust on the flowers to give it a little sparkle. I think it turned out sooooo girly, shabby and cute!!! and we all know I love shabby and girly!!!

Pillows from Placemats!

I thought I would show you what I worked on today. I found this really cool article in better homes and garden awhile back about making pillows from place mats...so I went on the hunt for cute clearance place mats and got these Laura Ashley shabby place mats.....sewed them together and stuffed them for the girls room!

Count down

I just got back from a really nice date night with my husband to Guys Steak house...we had a great time. I love my kids... wouldn't trade them for anything, but it's really nice to have a dinner without cooking it, cleaning it up off the table and the floor or having to say 10 times "eat your food"! aaahhhhh! Mommy bliss that even included mud pie!

So....now I sit here thinking I should start the count down to my scrapbook Cruise!! heaven!!!
38 days left till Renee and I get on a plane in Spokane!!! I CAN'T WAIT!!!

Just also wanted to remind everyone about my next class at the SBH, "Our Summer in review" Here's the link! http://thescrapbookhideaway.com/cms/13?PHPSESSID=eb0cf4175d9f6fe998b1b5cd67e87c8d and tell you I will be running the princess chipboard album class again in September!
I'm working on my #2 September class project tonight. I'll post it in a few days...super cute, It's a family portfolio! I should have it on display at the SBH when I work at the store this Saturday! Have a great day tomorrow!
