Before and After Table

Here's another fun project I have been working on.  I've had this little table for YEARS.  I was thinking about getting rid of it, but it is the perfect size that fits over my heater and hold my laundry basket when it's not in use.  So one day instead of getting rid of it, I decided to give it a much needed make-over.  It turned out really nice and was really easy to do.  I love home-made chalk paint and Java Gel Stain by General Finishes.  Have I mentioned that I redid an entire kitchen with Java Gel Stain.  It turned out amazing.  Love that stuff. are my before and after pictures.   Not bad for a total of about $10.

Building Memories Layout


Scrapping Bug Designs offered this cute little bear as a while ago and I loved him so much that I had to play with him today.  He turned out so cute that I decided I needed to make a girl version of him too.  Both wouldn't fit on the layout so I made a peaking girl to go on the top.  I have the world's most amazing husband.  He is truly a Mr. Fix it kind of guy.  Everything from flower beds, to a cabin remodel, to fixing my daughter's hair.  He does it all and never complains.  I am very fortunate to have such an amazing husband and I love him very much.  So I wanted to create this page about all the work he does for our family so that I never forget what a blessing it is to have him as my husband.  I love you honey and thanks for all you do!

The sun is from the Doodlebug cartridge
The truck is from a cartridge too, but I can't remember which one as I cut it a while ago
and the ladybug is a Little Scraps of Heaven file modified by me to make him forward facing.
Hope you enjoy and have a good day!

I'm entering it into the challenge here: creat a scene anything goes  anything goes
