A challenge!

I've got a lot of them going on right now. Probably the biggest is the main bath and living/dining room reno that i'm in the midst of! This is a pic of the current state of my living room. I've got one word for it...YIKES!!!! Yes, it's a mess, but we are ripping down the wall between the living and dining room. The living room is at the front of the house, and the dining room at the back. The back of the house is loaded with natural light, while the front is dark and dreary. This is going to let light pour into the living room and make me happy. I'm gonna wait for the bathroom to be done before I post any pics, but all I will say is....can you say ZEN!!!

Now for the FUN challenges in my life....the Bellarific Friday challenge. I know I generally post these on Friday night, but with the b'day and the reno I'm a bit behind. The colours that Emily picked out this week made my eyes wild! In my personal life I like my surroundings to be calm and my colors subdued...but my inner soul LOVES color...LOTS of it.

These colors screamed little Missmatch Ketto to me. I adore these images and have acquired quite a few of them already, I just need to find time to work on them! Soon! I coloured her up with copics and mounted with oval nesties. When I tossed the cut pieces on the table, they landed in the 'offbeat' arrangement and I thought...HEY...go with it. The sentiment is also from stamping bella as well as the spellbinder ribbon slide tag. They came in a set of three and I've had them for quite a while....whevever I'm pulling out a sentiment I always check to see if it will fit in one of these because I love them. Little Missmatch needed some bling, so I added some hot fix crystals, they seriously are as glittery as swarovski's.

That's it for today, I'll see ya Wednesday with another oldie but goodie from Stamping Bella.
