more moving + art = show and tell

i've been staring at my wall of square boxes. My life is in them. And it's getting closer...less than 10 days. Handsome and I are in the loan paperwork process now. We had a thorough inspection today of the condo. Everything is ship shape. I found some big fat lady bugs in the weeds...so now I told Mr. Handsome that he can't cut them :) Save the ladybugs! hehee. That's what you get for marrying me...sucka. heee.
So on Monday I had the day off...no packing boxes ( I'm trying to get over the extreme allergy case I got from all the dust) and no wedding planning. (everyone needs a day off. srsly.) So I went looking through my pile of boxes for my KR kit. and I found it. i LOVE it. and can I just say every month, EVERY MONTH with out fail. KL amazes me with these pretty pretty kits. sheesh. so cool. I have some paper love to share with you...

I'm having this sit by my guest sign-in table. I hope me kissing mr.handsome doesn't offend anyone. because really, i heart him. and it's only cool if i kiss him :)

I had a Martha Stewart shadow box hanging around and thought it would be the perfect touch to display some of my loves. Mr. Handsome, Some yummy vintage ribbon, crochet flower and the small pretty metal frame. cute*

An art page about my love of photos and how taking pictures makes me happy. And more aware of what I like and don't. But never to be too afraid to not take a picture. Sometimes I freeze up. wait a little to long. people stare and I shy away. I'm gonna be braver. rawr. >)
I had a tube of pink paint open to see if it still worked...unfortunately i layed it on the paper and some squeezed out. so I just put a plain paper over it and smoothed over the paint on the paper. not such a bad mistake. ha!

YAY for happy perfect days. I have scrapped this pic before but I hate to throw out those little index prints. I wrote the beatles song "i wanna hold your hand" over and over again around the picture.
today was perfect
I took a swirl piece of chipboard that comes with the kit and layed it over the journaling paper. I sprayed right over my typed journaling. Then I added the word "perfect" with the rubons in the kit on the KR exclusive fabric. sweet how it worked out. and i didn't mess it up :)

On this page I wrote about how eager I am to finally make a home with Mr. Handsome. we have such different and some similar tastes. I think it's very exciting and can't wait to finally see what our home will look like!
Using the same swirl piece as the previous layout, I did the same thing with it. Just sprayed right over top of it and flipped it upside down and did the same thing. I made a bow with the ribbon and sewed it straight onto the paper to make my title. cuteness!

These next 2 happened in this same order. This is my entry to the beautiful Nikki's circle journal. My favorite happy place is my art studio. I can't wait to set it up in our new space!
art studio
I used the shiny vellum in the kit and traced around the chipboard butterfly ( i took the design off of it :) then I cut out the butterfly and sewed it right over top the chipboard shape. Easy adding in dimension.

Now in this page I used the same paper I cut the butterfly out of. I just placed it behind my picture. and sewed it on.
I also used the black jenni bowlin piece the buttons come with. Love the little bit of black peaking through the bottom of the picture.

Just thought I'd share a little since I've neglected the wee little blog. Hope this loooooooong post is somewhat helpful to you. Now go have fun!
happy wednesday
and less than 10 days ack!
