FINALLY! I found this threading water punch from Fiskars! I used my 40% off coupon and it was a good deal!
I badly needed one of these babies! It's a corner rounder and I love it!
Look at all the ribbon, they were 99 cents each.. cute!
I got more paint for my stash.. all of them were 99 cents each. I don't put these paints directly on my pictures, I use them for the dots to create emphasis on certain points of my layouts.
Okay.. on to the weekend!
Here are the funky foam stickers I got that I mentioned above.. Aren't they cute!?! I penned in the Animal Park with a sharpie... added some buttons to match...
A little leafy chipboard... cute!
Chipboard here and there... cute!
There were so many different kinds of monkeys!
I used some random sticker letters for the Monkey Around..
Some of the scenery there was just amazing, if you hiked up the hills you can overlook the whole park and see all the animals in their own habitats roaming around together.. it was great!
I added stickers to a piece of blue paper and used some pop up dots for it to stand out a little more... you can also see where I used my NEW threading water punch on the top.. Yay!
A little more journaling on a tag...
Okay so that was Saturday's activities only! Can you imagine! I was dead tired, and sore, and tired some more after all that!
Sunday this is what I did... my girls' room has a PINK wall, so pink that it's blinding... yeah it's that pink! So they also had shear window curtains and beads but they weren't so good on shading the light from coming in, so they were always up at the crack of dawn. I went by the mall to pick up some stuff and saw these velvet-y chocolate brown curtains on sale 50% off! So I got some and thought I would decorate their room with something that tied the two colors together. This is what I came up with... Step by step....
These were their old curtains, sheer underneath and these purple and pink beads on top.. Not very sun shielding... :)
This is the final outcome... It's whimsy like my girls and I hope they like it! They finally come back tomorrow! They've been gone for 12 days already!
A closer look...
This was after I put the dresser back.. and you can see the new curtains off to the far left, brown! I think it came out okay, it breaks up the pink a little and it's different.. :) I think it will be better when we rearrange and the dresser isn't in the way of the design... Oh yeah and see that large stuffed mouse there in the corner! That's Diddle, he's like the Micky Mouse of Germany... I got him in 2000 when my mom and sister and brother and BFF went to visit me, we found him in Dusseldorf and I carried him on my back for the rest of the day... People thought I was nuts but he is adorable... and he's one stuffed animal I won't EVER yard sale! :)
I'll have more pictures tomorrow of stuff I got in the mail! woohoo... I love mail like this!
