Happy Monday! It's time for another MDS Challenge and this week we are adding punches to a page.
While adding punches are fairly easy to use there are many things you can do with punches that you may sometimes forget.
What can you do with a punch?
- Change the shape and rename for future use
- Fill with paper or cardstock
- Fill with a photo
- Add text around a punch
- No punch retires!
These are just a few of my favorites when working with punches.
Make sure to check out Heather's layout HERE. Be sure to watch her video on using punches.
I decided to create a layout about my sweet Shelby this week. Still can't believe she is gone. After having a pet with you for 16 years it's hard to get her off my mind some days.
In other house news…. Russ and I were able to get TONS done in a very short time together. I may not have mentioned but Russ was only here for a week to help me get settled and he left today to head back to DC as he turns over his job to someone new. He'll be "home" in a few short weeks.
Considering our lack of time I am so proud of what we were able to accomplish. We have all the paint colors picked and started the painting process. Every wall just about is getting paint. I'm super excited about the colors but the painting job is NOT easy. After taking Russ to the airport I went back to the house to work. The only great thing is we are putting new carpet in which means I don't have to be super careful when painting. This is a good thing becasue I learned today I am not an expert and paint is everywhere. Even in my hair. YIKES.
We were also able to design our pool. This had me so giddy I could barely talk to the man when we were designing. I'm sure he thinks I'm a complete kook-a-boo because i kept a big grin on my face. It's also been a week of calling contractors and I'm suprised at how little called me back. My impatience is getting the best of me.
I'm hoping to put a little ink to paper this week but I will be honest… once I step foot into my mom's house and she feeds me dinner (Yes… I'm spoiled rotten right now) I lay on the couch and I'm a vegitable.
Hoping to show you a few pics tomorrow of the progress.
