A Little of This and a Little of That...

I'm a little scared that the scrapping mojo is slipping... I think most of it is due to the fact that, for some unknown reason, I can't get 4x6 pics to print on my printer. I'm not good at trouble shooting things. I tend to get frustrated because I'm sure I should be able to figure it out. So when I can't, it stresses me out. I don't need any stress at the moment (who does, ever?!) so I'm just going to let it be for awhile and come back to it later. There's plenty to do besides scrap (*gasp* did I just say that?).

As I type, I'm waiting for my gorgeous hubby to come home from work and take me out on a happy anniversary date! I married my best friend 14 years ago today! Money's a little tight this month so I think he has a gift card to PF Chang's we've been saving for a special occasion- guess this fits the bill! :)

I think I've also been going a little crazy on the challenge sites lately. I've been so inspired and LOVE the sketches that I may have become a bit addicted! Here's my LO for The Scrappiest sketch 26:

This was my first attempt at masking. I used my Tim Holz Ransom alphas and used a Ranger paint dabber! Both are so incredibly cool! Just a simple LO, but I think I really like the outcome!

I said I would share some pics of my "make-shift" clip-it-up system, so here we are! Those things are so expensive, but I wanted a way to use my verticle space in my room. Paul and I made a trip to Lowe's and came out with all the makings for a magnetic board and rail system for my wall!

Not my best photog skills here, but at least you can see the whole thing! It's magnetic, so we also found a magnetic curtain rod to attach to it and used curtain clips! I also put a regular curtain rod below it (I think it cost less than $2.50!) and used the same curtain clips!

I absolutely and completely love this! It is so well worth the effort! I can clip up all sorts of things on here!

Off for now! <3

Great job on the clip-it system! I love it! I just might need to make one of those!
