New Layouts

These are the layouts I made for this weeks assignment over at House of Paper. The theme this week was Beginnings / Endings / Journeys. I used Bella Blvd. Man of the House papers on both layouts.
This first layout is my son's 5th grade graduation. The lettering was made using my Base Camp Cricut cartridge. The stars were cut with my Doodlecharms Cricut cartridge.

This second layout is "busier" than I usually do, but I thought it would be fun for a change. This is one of my twins at the Breakfast of Champions. All the design elements are cut out of the papers. The lettering is cut using my Cricut Base Camp cartridge.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Redecorating bedrooms

I have been painting My kids' bedrooms. This is the end result. I got everything at Walmart :]

I found these colors of paint at Walmart and bought it in the Dutch Boy brand and thought it was good paint.

The bedding is Mainstays Ombre Bed in a Bag, Grey. The valence on the window is Mainstays Bennett Window Valence. I found the red throw pillow in the store. The long pillow is one that matches another bed in a bag set. The black blankets at the end of the bed are Microplush blankets...the boys love them. They are super soft! The roller cart worked great between the beds for the alarm clock and the light.

For this room I used Kilz brand paints. The lighter wall is the Alaskan Sky and the darker wall is Saxaphone solo. I got the paint at Walmart in the Kilz brand.

The bedding on the top bed is American Kids All Star bedding. I got the comforter, sheets, and blanket (which I found in the store). The bottom bed has the Dallas Cowboys bedding set, My son already had the throw pillow but it is sold at walmart, I also got the Window Valence online. The roller cart works great and it matched pretty good.

Thanks for stopping by!
