My travelers are back!!

So excited to hug my travelers last night!  They had a safe and wonderful journey to India -- and even spent a little time in London celebrating Jocelyn's 20th Birthday!  Here they are pictured with their Host family- The Wiigs!  They had lots of stories to share and we are so thankful they could make the trip together!!

Creating with some NEW STUFF!!

I am not sure if this happens to YOU - but once School starts (which is very soon here), the months seem to fly by and it turns FALL and Halloween very quick!!! I am still in denial that Fall is going to be coming quicker than we think.  I wanted to share a Halloween Project that I made with The Teresa Collins Haunted Hallows line which is available now after the Summer CHA show.  This new line will knock your socks off! So many cute designs - and will be lots of fun for all the Halloween photos!

Extreme Home Makeover: Paris Edition

 With Jocelyn and Dad away- we have been very busy little bees with a Room Makeover project.  We NOW have a Pink and Black Paris Themed room for Jensen.  She really needed the update due to the fact her "Princess" room was kinda baby-ish and she is afterall on the way to MID school in a couple weeks.  She is quite a decorator -- and I am always a painting fool-- so together, we make quite a pair.  Here are several photos from the re-do!   
 This little manequin was an old "Fairy" I bought a few years ago and had a green body, and spring flowers all over it.  We took off the wings, and then did our "Black and Pink" thing!! LOVE it!
We used the Teresa Collins "Sophisticated" Cricut Cartridge to cut out
TREASURE from Black Flocked Vinyl Adhesive.  I LOVE this font!!!!! It looks adorable!

These cupboards are built in on one wall, and they had been distressed white when Ross had this room with his Beach theme, but NOW we painted Chalkboard paint to a few doors and also some vinyl stickers  -- Voila-- wonderful!!!
 The Closet door has more Teresa Collins Font cut out of Black Flocked Adhesive-- Jensen thought of this idea-- since she thinks of FASHION when she thinks of Paris!

The nightstand is made of suitcases -- this idea stolen from Pinterest!!!  (it is so addicting!)  So fun!!  Another little Teresa Collins element cut out and stuck on the white suitcase.  I am loving this Sophisticated cartridge!



This wall has another cute vinyl that I acutally bought.  Jensen came up with her cute sayings on the word board.
And now to my very favorite part of the room!!!!



 We had this birdhouse desk that Randy had built years ago for Jocelyn, and it had been handed down to Jensen.  It was Blue--- but we painted it black and changed out all the knobs.  WE also found this PINK Ruffle dress in the Dressup box = and it makes an adorable chair cover!!!  Added a broach and a sash and flower and it will be soooo cute sitting at the desk.
We had an absolute ball this week-- and now we need to go get the paint out from under our fingernails!!
