The Transformation has begun...

Jase and my BIL Barrie started lining the walls in our rumpus room and my Scrap space today. It's looking great already.
We built this area in several years ago(externally), but hadn't got around to finishing it off inside.
Jase and I decided this year was it, 2009...time to finish some projects off around our place.
While the kids were little it made things harder, so now they are a little older we are getting it all done, and I can't wait!
I can't wait for it all to be set up properly, with room to move....that's very exciting.
We have a colonial "Queenslander" style home with VERY limited storage, so it will be nice to have some storage space and a lovely area to hang out together and of course scrap.
My BIL Barrie is a Cabinet maker so he had lots of cool ideas to utilise the space...Thanks Baz!!

Here's the boys hard at work...



I'm loving how it looks.
Painting is top of the list for me tomorrow!

Before the Scrap area was pulled apart I managed to do these two layouts.
The One Little Word Challenge at Scrapchat this week was "Words".

And a Colour Challenge from my Yahoo Group...using Orange/Green and white!
Not a combo I use often, but I like this layout...suited it perfectly!


My desk is still operational, thankfully!
I couldn't imagine not being able to play! LOL

I hope you had a good weekend!

Chat soon,
Chelle Xx
