Scrap Room part 1

My husband gets this........

but I get.......

A whole room to myself. 
Here are my scrapbooking supplies in boxes and that's not even all the boxes. I have 4 more to add in there.

Most importantly is this bargain I picked up. $200 for this shelving unit. Even more came with it. We just couldn't fit it in the room. I will adjust the shelves once it is all assembled but I was just too excited to not share. 

How awesome is that for $200. Better than an Expedit. Bigger and more versatile. 

My hope is to update you with a few photos of my scrap room once all the items are in place. Shaking with excitement right now.

What does your scrapping space look like? Do you scrap at the kitchen table, in the office or have a dedicated room? 
Share links to your blog with photos so people can get an idea of what is out there and some different ways to sort and store their supplies.

Shimelle's 4x6 photo love October

I have been waiting for some spare time to finish this project off. I finally finished on a rainy day. A bad day for photography and the weather set in so please excuse the photography.

You probably all know by now what a fan of Shimelle's I am. I enjoy her style and her instructions. I have thoroughly enjoyed her 4x6 photo love series on 2 Peas. Ten, yes 10, photos in one session, on one page is awesome. She just makes things so easy to follow. She is such an inspiration. Thanks Shimelle.

And the other side.
The journaling. It's a travel page so of course there's lot of journaling.
And some more details.

I love this idea and I think I'll be using it a bit more especially in the kids albums next year. It was simple and quick to do, enough embellishing and lots of space for the story.

My next post will show you my scraproom plans. As I have just moved 1200kms I have the chance to set up my space the way I want it, allowing for finances too. I'll show you the bare room (well it's not bare it's actually full of boxes so I'll show you how much "stuff" I actually own in my stash) so you can see me build my room up to how I want it to be.
Until then.
