Hi all,

I've been rather busy this past week, and all for good reason, I've renovated my scraproom. With the amazing help of my mum, THANKS mum!!!

Below are my before & After shots!! What do you think? Ive done a few things like,
- Repainted whe whole room to white, I didn't like the cream
- New white blind
- New floor covering
- Moved out some of the old furniture
- And displayed my pages much better with some 12x12 scrap fames on the wall
BEFORE
AFTER
The cabinets are great, when we renovated the rest of the house we moved these out of our pool room, Josh was going to bin them but I couldn't they are just fab for all my stuff as a most of the shelves are 13 inches, it was a match made in heven. lol!! I added the page frames to the wall too, I wanted it to all be white so that the pages were on show. Oh I hug the lovely helicopter on the wall from one of Caroles amazing kits. Its right at the back next to the window.

I love it it's so easy for me to just slide from my laptop to my work desk. The two trollies at the bottom right hand corner are great too they hold all my must haves so I just roll them over to me and then just put them away when I'm done. I'm lucky to have this room it's huge about 7.5 x 3.6m and is air coned. Plus when people come to crop I just run the tables down the middle of the room and have heaps of room to move around still.



This is another of Caroles kits, I had such fun doing it, i can't wait for her to get back from NZ to see what new kits she has.


And last but not least this is a page I've only just finished 'Agnes' These papers were really fun to use, they are from Philippa's Lime Tart Kits This weekend there won't be any scrapping as we are off to the races today, I love going to the races a chance to get all dressed up, have a flutter and a few glasses of wine. (Not too many though just enough to numb the pain from my new shoes) lol!!


Any one in the Rockhampton & Gladstone are who would like to have a social scrap on Saturday 20th October with Carole, Julie Heard, Nicole Pomeroy and I please email me laurenmarierhodes@hotmail.com as we'd love to have a laugh with you.


Enough for me it's going to take me all morning to get ready so I'b better take Jett for a long walk (I feel bad leaving him this afternoon) and start getting fluffed up!!!

Hi Lauren bummer I dont live closer I would love to come for a social scrap but I think 6 - 8 hours drive for a scrap is just a bit excessive. Wow I love your scrap room hopefully the change will help you create some beautiful pages for us to look at.
Take care
