We moved into our house on January 22, 2006, since then I have only painted and finished one room in the house, the scrapbook room. Basically because I am not an interior designer and do not even feel comfortable picking out a paint color. So, this morning we had a designer come to help us out. She had some great ideas and I can not wait to start implementing some of them. Her contract will come in the main this next week and then if all is good, we can start ASAP. I really want to stay in this house forever, so I want to be sure that what we do is something we like and can live with. Not that we will never change it, but it needs to last a while:)
I did not do any homework today. Instead I finished and scanned 2 more layouts for my sisters books. Both of the sketches below is from my local scrapbook store.






































I love how I never notice that something is not straight until I have scanned it:(

I pull the pages out of the magazines and put them in page protectors and then into a 3 ring binder. Then I proceed to never look at them:(

Ooooh, looking forward to hearing more about what the designer had to say :) Your layouts are great! LOL about filing the ideas and not looking at them again - it sounds familiar... :)

Love the layouts! These are just adorable. And I know what you mean about decorating...it is scary to pick paint colors. Believe me, I've made my share of mistakes! :-) It's great that you're getting a designer involved. That will really help!
