If the Dress Form fits... Glitter it!

Last weekend I cut out some very cool shapes from my cricut cartridge called Summer in Paris. I used these images, from black cardstock, to decorate our dinning room during my Darling daughter's birthday party. When cleaning up I did not have the heart to throw them away so I decided to alter them and create some cool wall art pieces.

Here is what it looked like before...

I just adore this transformation! I happen to be in the process of turning the walk-in closet off my scrap room into a sewing closet and thought this would just be perfect to help bring some of my scrap room colors into that space.

Here you can see the wonderful P K Glitz colors I used to spice up this silhouette. Chocolate, Copper Penny and Red Hot Chilly Pepper matched my scrap room perfectly! I took some Bronze Ritzy Ditzy Glitz and accented the flowers a bit to help them sparkle as well.

Next time you get in a creative mood, look around and see what you can find that could use a little Glitz to make life beautiful!

An Open Invitation - Scraproom Makeover!

Hello everyone! I thought I would open this up to the blogging world. I am hosting the third annual Scraproom Makeover Challenge. It runs for the entire month of February and it will help you get your space organized the way you want it. I will do my best to post all tips of the days and challenges right here on my blog. But if you like the format and comrodery of a fourm setting I am hosting it over at

Here are some pictures of my first year's before and afters... (I didn't host this years)

Now for last years... (I did host this so I did not quite finish due to all the time spent researching ideas and images to share)


Hanging By A Moment's Gallery: The scrapbooking room boxes... are somewhere in here!

No kidding... I had just moved and had over 9 boxes buried in that mess. Though my scraproom was not in the garage it was in this room...

Hanging By A Moment's Gallery: The Scraproom Before

Now I immediately knew that I needed color on the walls since we had finally bought out first home and now I had a scraproom all to myself! So it turned into this...
