You I Most Admire -- featuring PhotoPlay! :)

Hi everyone! :)

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you might have seen this story -- and I knew I had to document this moment :)

Brookie had her 18th laser surgery on March 16th, and the next day I had this conversation with her -- and well -- you can read it to understand ... all I have to say is, Oh.My.Heart. :) 

I used the "Like A Girl" collection from PhotoPlay :)








The "You I Most Admire" sticker -- actually said, "People I Most Admire" -- but I covered the "People" and made it read "YOU" :)





Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

Not to get carried away -- featuring WPlus9 :)

Hi everyone! :)



If you remember from my 'reflections' post -- I wanted to work on my stamping and coloring this year -- so several family members got me gift certificates to my LSS "Scraps of Love" for Christmas -- so I was able to get the Hampton Arts "Stamp Perfect" tool (WHICH I LOVE BY THE WAY!!!!) -- so that is helping with the stamping part -- and I am working on my coloring skills too (so NO judging! LOL!) .... and I wanted to share a card I made :)


I used Bo Bunny stamps on here, along with the sentiment coming from WPlus9 stamps :)




Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

From old to new :)

Hi everyone! :)

In January when Adam came to visit, we visited some antique stores, as I was looking for a bigger desk to refinish for Brookie :)

We found this one :)





This is from my ERA! LOL!! 1970's at it's best! :)


You can probably see in this photo, that the previous owner had painted black chalkboard paint on the top ... oy!  So I got some paint remover and went to work! :)





Here is the painted top after the FOURTH application of paint remover!!! Yikes .... 




Finally ... the black paint is GONE! :)




And here is the desk all sanded :)




And here it is all modernized!!!!! :)

Please forgive the garage photos .... I took these after I was done, but before I moved it to her room :)











And here it is in her room :)





And here is the before and after :)




Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
