sleepin' in

After a few years of renos in our house, there are finally completed areas in our home. Now......I love to decorate, so I can't imagine that our place will ever be completely decorated........I will forever change things up....I just know it....(sorry, Ron).......I love it too much. But there are some spaces that, when I walk into that room, I just LOVE the way it makes me feel.

Our bedroom is one of those places. Not because of what happens in there {lol} -- edit later for younger viewers & my mother -- the room just has that calming feeling.........and who wouldn't want to spend time in a room that calms you. With it's old painted-door headboard, the wrought iron scroll above the bed, the personalized photos in chunky frames, the calming blue comforter, the Eiffel Tower prints (I'm gonna get there someday) & the yellow throw pillow on the bed -- I am IN LOVE with my room (call me crazy).

So.... I just wanted to share the layout above that I created a few weeks ago while scrappin' with my sister-in-law.
I used a variety of LAYERING techniques to create a few collections all over the layout. I created a grid pattern on my background pattern paper by machine stitching with black thread. Did I measure these lines out?????? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!!!!!!! Not a chance. Don't measure -- just stitch. It's WAY more fun that way. period.

I sanded this little chipboard bird before I used the teeny tiny flower stamp from the Funky Flowers stamp set from my Stamp BOX.
And that gorgeous black vinyl title you see.....yes, it's from my little sister over at Cut Your Way.
Hope I've inspired you to create a layout about a special place in your house..........and to sleep in a little more.
enjoy your bed & your coffee this morning ....... or tonight.
