Reno update

I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel!  My scrapbook room will be ready in just a few days!  I'm hosting a crop on Saturday to celebrate.  As for the rest of the renovations, they are progressing.  We slept in our new master bedroom for the second time last night.  It's not completely done, still a few details to take care of, but it's coming along.  We painted our old room which is to become Marianne's room.  That room should be done by the weekend too. 

Despite not having a functioning scrapbook area.  I managed to make quite a few layouts on my kitchen table, and at LCOM's last crop.  Here are a few :

Fist here is a layout using LCOM sketch no 17. 
Zoé loves her rythmic gymnastic classes.  These are a few of the pictures my father in law took at one of her classes.  I used some Bo bunny and Authentique paper along with some Webster's pages ribbon

Another LCOM sketch was used to make this layout.  Zoé is a very affectionate little girl.  She's always hugging me.  She is my little velcro.  I used some Kaisercraft and CTMH to complete this layout

We were presented with a few challenged at the last LCOM crop.  The first one was a sketch challenge using a PageMaps sketch  I had just received my Dream Pop kit from CTMH and was eager to use it.  Love the colors and the resist cardstock that come with it.  I used pictures from when Zoé met her favorite Disney Princess, Merida. 

And this last layout was the result of a one hour challenge.  I used some Bo Bunny paper that I flet went perfectly with the pictures.  I often bring the little ones I babysit on the bus to go to the library.  they love the ride!
I also made a card for a dear friend who celebrated a milestone birthday recently.  As I did not have any Graphic 45 paper, I had to settle on this pretty Webster's Pages paper.  I decorated it with pretty Prima flowers and leaves.

For this week's layout, I found the perfect picture to go with this Fancy Pants collection.  Those two cuties came to my house wearing the same outfit.  They are best friends and sometimes seem to speak a language that only they can understand.  
To complete the layout I used hearts from CTMH's wooden trinkets, sparkle ribbon, Basic Grey letters and some flowers that I purchased at a yard sale.
