more altering

Did a little more altering in the past couple of days for our room. This is another kit that I won at a crop awhile back, and it came with it's own paper, but I used mine instead to make it match a little better in my room. Just Mod Podged it like normal. It didn't take too long. And then I did the clothespin too. Not too hard. And aren't Blake and Luke adorable. Man, it was forever ago!

Some Home Decor

Who says scrapbooking is only for scrapbooks?? Check out some ways to use your scrapbooking supplies and display some of your artwork in your own home.
Some of you might recognize the brown box set of albums that was sold on QVC forever ago. I had always planned to decorate it. So, since I've been decorating my room, I thought I would finally get to it. I adhered some chipboard, ribbons, flowers, and a picture to it after finding out that rub-ons didn't work. There are four miscellaneous 8x8 albums inside of it. Here's where it sits on my dresser with a few things that I got this past weekend...not to mention my jewelry box that's almost as old as me! (Oh, and of course, everything was bought at 40%-90% off. You know me!)
I bought this picture frame for $6 at Hobby Lobby. I originally was gonna put Eric's Father's Day present in there.....a collage of firework pictures, but then I changed my mind. I added these pics of the kids, and then decorated the mat that came with it with rub-ons that I had had FOREVER! I like how it turned out.
And here's some more more altered letters that I did for the new baby and also for our dining room wall. The new baby's are embellished while the ones in the dining room are simply covered with paper.
