What's going on this week?

Busy week so far at our house....bust out the paint rollers!!  I started the massive repainting of the living room project (well, not MASSIVE, but i do have to re-do all the trimwork..ugh!).  I love my new color, its "Macadamia Nut"..beigy with a little butter yellow.  The room looks so much bigger and brighter!  I didn't realize how bad the old paint looked until the first two walls were done.  And just to show you how I always incorporate my scrapook supplies into my home dec stuff...

the pic is a little grainy, but it's one of my favorite larger stamps!
I used my STAZ-ON ink pad in black to stamp the image on top of each of my door frames throughout the house.  Love the look!

Emma and Jacob also got busy painting yesterday...they both built birdhouses and then painted them.
I'll post pics of the finished projects when they are all done.
(nice shirt emma!  momma made her take it off so she didn't get pain all over it!)


And in other BIG NEWS....who is this young lad?
Clean shaven and EMPLOYED!!!

Nicholas got his very first job today with Stabler Concessions. 
With any luck he'll be able to work the Eagles Training Camp coming up in three weeks!


My Scrappy Stuff this week...

This layout is all about Sam...our little cutie. 
See those cute little chipboard animals again! 
Love the rooster!  This sketch is for the Sketchy Thursday's August Guest Designer Challenge.  I used the color yellow with my chipboard rooster and the flower was handmade from a flower swap I did a while ago.  I also painted the chip letters (sam) and then stamped them with two different stamps. I love how they turned out. 


and this photo just is tooooooo cute!


Happy day all!
