Layout share

This was done for a challenge at Scrapbookelements, I just love masks, they make layouts more fun and isn't that part of what it's about? Ok, there is that saving memories for our kids and their kids ect too. But it's nice to have fun doing it.

On a personal note, we have been really busy with the new place. There is so much to be done. Hubby is putting in a drip system so we can leave home on occasion and not have to worry the trees and roses will die. We are working on the coach trying to get it in better shape for our next trip, and the trim on the house is in very bad shape, so we are painting. Now painting in the desert is a whole different thing. Between the heat and the wind the paint dries before you can even get it on the house. LOL. So, we were up at 4am painting today. No wind as yet, and it cooled down quite nicely last night. But when the sun came up, so did the wind and inside we went. Hubby is also making sun screens for the house. So far he has put on 4 of them and they sure make a difference in the heat coming in.

For my part, I'm looking forward to getting enough boxes unpacked of my crafting items that I can get started on some quilting.

Happy crafting until next time.

Finally, a new wallpaper

I know it's late and I haven't done one in a couple months, but I had requests so here is June's wallpaper.

Be sure to check out Amanda's whole Citrus Crush kit. There are some extra pieces for free in her store for use in the calendar challenge.

We are still getting settled into our new home. Hubby keeps asking me if I'm done, LOL. I keep buying things. The latest and probably the last for quite a while is a set of cabinets. 2 base cabinets, one drawers, one a base with shelves and a tall pantry type cabinet. They go into my sewing room so I will have somewhere to put all my stuff. I know I've got more stuff they they will hold, but it'll help a lot. Also the base cabinets become my cutting table. Sink base cabinets work very well because not only do they have storage inside, but they are just the right height.

I'm working hard at my CT work at Scrapbook Elements as well. Check out the Challenge that Sheryl and I have up. Words From the Heart, we have made some really cute goodies as gifts for participating.

And check out the cute page I made for the BB
challenge at SBE. The template is done by Kim
Hollibone and the kit is just darling. It's Mandy King's I Am Forever Changed.

Click on the layout to be taken to the gallery at SBE and see it larger.

I guess I shall never get very good at posting here, but I think I'll try to post the monthly wallpapers again and some of the layouts I do with kits from the awesome designers at SBE and by Amanda at Digitals.
