Inspiration for my new space!

Hello everybody! :) Hope you are having a wonderful day! I sure am! The sun is shining here today and the weather has been just beautiful! :) I went out to lunch with an extra special friend and it was so nice to just sit and visit and enjoy each others company! She and I have been friends for a long time and she is getting ready to relocate to another state. It won't be that far away, but far enough so that our hectic schedules will keep us from visiting regularly. I am really, really going to miss her.

On a whole other note...I have been slowly chipping away to create a stamping space all of my own! :) We have a library in our house that doubles as a school room! We have used it mostly for storage though the last few months. I decided I was going to clean it out and turn half of it into my space! It has proven to be a giant job though! I had no idea how much stuff we had accumulated! LOL I am right in the middle of it which means that my stuff is all over the place! I took a break though to make a little something to offer inspiration once things get settled! I found the prettiest 12 X 12 paper pack at Wal Mart on sale (some of my very favorite words!!) and it included several sheets of punch out letters! Normally these wouldn't appeal to me, but the colors were just so pretty I couldn't resist! So I bought it and a frame and took it all home to get to work! Recently I purchased a stamp that I fell head over heels for and was looking for just the right project to ink it up on! This was going to be it!! I laid everything out and it just kind of came together! No fuss, no muss...just worked out the very first time! I love these colors together too! I used background paper from the mat pack and the letters and border strip as well! I used leaves from my Sizzex die and added some bridal flowers and some pretty pink bling! Once the whole thing was finished I stamped my new stamp and added some clear stickles and mounted it on the upper corner! Just as soon as my space is complete I am going to hang this up! :) If you look closely at the stamped image you will see that there are several hidden images in the stamp! It is an Inkadinkadoo stamp. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! ;)

Here it is:





Hope you like it! I sure do! :) Have a super day!

What a great and beautiful project, AM! I am off tomorrow and am really hoping to get all of my schtuff re-organized and finally put away! Hmmmm....maybe I need to make myself an inspiration piece!
Sorry to hear that your friend is moving away. But just think of all the cards you'll get to send her! ;)

Very pretty! I love that paper. I know how hard it is to reorganize a room for craft space, but once it is done it is SOOOOO worthy it!
