Home Improvements and a Challenge.

Well I did a page for a challenge over on the Cricut Circle Message Board. It was for the Labor Day Holiday Weekend Challenge and I wasn't going to enter but last night I was playing with Design Studio and the ONLY Lite Cartridge I own, Handy Man, and we're working on this house ALL THE TIME, I thought, what the heck let me try to whip something up and................................
The challenge was to do a layout of what you did over the Holiday weekend and of course we worked on the house. We also went to the neighbors Family Reunion on Sat. and I have pics of that also but the house is always a work in process so what better thing to work on, a layout since I really need to get more layouts done, lol!
So what do you think???????? I didn't put any pictures in it (I haven't developed any yet, lol) It is ALWAYS a work in process on our home, I don't think it will EVER end! I know I've told you before but for you folks that don't know, we actually built our own house, with our own two hands, so you can see why it's a work in process.
This was actually alot of fun to do and I'm still amazed how fast I got it done. I did a bit of embossing and love the little screw head eyelets I added. I used paint chips for the journaling spot and the photo mats (the paint chips are the actual colors that I used in my house, I also used a sage green but couldn't find the chip but, don't you just LOVE that red!) And yes, I have a yellow house and a red metal roof so this is going in my home renovation scrapbook! This is actually going in my Dear Hubs book, I'm trying to do one just on the house for him.
The windows in the house I may add some tiny pics or some other momento's, not sure what yet but I'm sure I'll think of something. I also added some glass finish on the paint brush and paint can so it looks like it's still wet! And can you believe it............................No Glitter Or Bling!!!!!!! Not even a flower on it!
 Well it needs to be posted by 11:59 pm today (Tues.) so I better get to it and post it in case I have any problems. Thanks for looking and wish me luck, I looked last night and there was alot of really great things on there and I'm sure there is alot more today. But like I said before, wish me luck! Thanks and please leave a comment and let me know what you think and of course, I'll let you know what happens.
Take Care and Froggie ((Hugs)) Theresa
