Last weekend was the fall crop at Cocoa Daisy, and once again, it was a fun-filled event. Lots of laughs, inspiration, and of course, challenges.
Here are a couple of layouts I completed from the challenges. First up, is a sketch challenge. I put my Cameo to use and love the results.
Thanks for stopping by; Happy Halloween!

I promise, I will stop counting after this! There aren't enough words to express my excitement over this machine. :)
This layout was created for Cocoa Daisy's Lotsa Layers Challenge by Mandy. I used several different fonts for the number nine and just love how it turned out!

In case you've been living under a scrappy rock and have no clue what a Silhouette Cameo is, let me tell you... It is the most amazing cutting system for crafting, ever! I dug my heels in resisting the hype, after all, I already own QuicKutz, and a Cricut - why would I need one more cutting system? As fate would have it, Studio Calico offered a bundle package that was too good to resist, and to make it even more enticing, they have a class to teach me how to get the most out of my machine.
I watched a few videos and downloaded a few Kerri Bradford files in anticipation of my machine's arrival. Here is my first layout using the Cameo. I used Kerri Bradford's, Beautiful World files for the title and Citrus Twist's October kit. To highlight the individual letters, I used Zing Embossing Powder.

As much as I loved my space, I knew I needed to make a few changes to make it more functional. After days of back-breaking work, the transformation is complete! I now have space for my daughter to craft with me, a spot for my sewing machine, and a designated space for my new Cameo!
It feels great to have a space that truly works for me now. I hope it's many years before I have to move one piece of furniture in here again. Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed the makeover as much as I do!

We've been on Fall Break here and I decided to rearrange my entire scraproom. I still have a tiny bit of tweaking to do and then I'll share some detailed photos. My new header photo shows my new look.
I've finally recovered enough to do a layout. Sharmaine's October sketch for Cocoa Daisy was my inspiration for this layout. It's rare that my husband I are are the focus of photos in our house, so I was happy to have this snapshot from our niece's wedding. Our daughter is a little jealous of this layout, she's not too keen on sharing her daddy with me. here.
Now I'm off to create a couple of finishing touches for my scraproom makeover!
