Decorating Disaster...

or could've been! As you know, I've done the MAJOR Flylady declutter and redecorated while my darling hubby was out of town for a week. Being up at 4 am, bed at 10+, you can only imagine the work that got done (I do work part-time!). And you saw the picture of the new sign above the front door. Well, while he was driving home yesterday, I was off driving my goddaughter and I to a crop in Myrtle Beach. He came home, walked in the door and the sign above the door promptly fell down--and hit him on the shoulder! Poor hubby! First he had been driving 7+ hrs, I wasn't home to greet him-and the house, although clean and neat(er), looked like strange territory at best! And to be bonked by a sign...! Oh so not good! But, being a good sport-he did say he likes what I've done! And I do, too! It was nice to get up this am and have things in their place-fix breakfast and lunch with minimal clean up and struggle, and I even took time this afternoon to finish the pages I started at the crop yesterday! GO ME! The photos are not the best---if anyone has a way to deflect glare from the page protectors-please share your secret! These pages are done with the Close To My Heart divided page protectors as well as the new Flip Flaps! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the flip flaps! It is an AWESOME way to add a ton more pictures to your pages! The interactive-ness of them makes them pretty cool, too! I took a 12x12 page, added a 4x12 and 8x12 (top and bottom respectively) and instant added page(s). The little overhang at the top is from the 4x6" flap I added to the front of the the smaller flap (the donkey photo) that overhangs the bottom of that flap. I actually had an "oops" and had to go back and decorate that! Most of the papers are Close to My Heart (not sure who did the pumpkin paper-that was ACM or Michaels purchase), alpha stamps CTMH, the pumpkins are from Verve Stamps Bountiful Harvest set. Better go clean up from my play time! Until next time, happy stamping and scrapping. Blessings, Sharon
