These are various views of our newly finished dining room. We just love it. Right now it is my favorite room in the house.

I have completed the decore element in the dining room. I didn't video it as it was a 2 person job and really needed the whole attention focused on it. I will video putting up a smaller element but I did take pictures of the process. With this particular one it needed to have the Believe centered and put on and then 14 other pieces lined up and applied. It took us a couple of hours but boy I think it is worth it. I live in a 200 year old house with plaster walls.The walls were rough and uneven where I wanted to place it. So we decided to paint a board and applied it to that. (that way if we move, I can take it with me)

This is showing the placement of one of the pieces. It is then burnished with a scraper tool and the paper is pulled off to show the vinyl underneath. It is actually pretty easy to do. It just requires time and some practice.

I really enjoyed doing it and the effort is well worth it. I wanted a cool focal point for the dining room and I got it!

Well the sun is out and it is a beautiful day, just never enough time. I want to be outside but we have so much to do inside. The good news is the dining room is almost done. The last is to paint the ceiling and floor. I also have the extra large Tres Chic decor element to put up. I will be filming a video of that for you, look for it at the end of next week.

Now to get back to what I am showing you today. These are some digital pages I have done recently. I was inspired just by viewing the photographs. I had these printed by the Stampin'Up! printer so I can't wait to get them.

I love these pics of Ayden taken last summer. He had stolen the sucker from his unsuspecting Uncle and wouldn't give it back. It was pretty comical.

If you do one you have to keep everybody happy. So I did up these pages of Charlotte and Laura, taken last year on a beautiful summer afternoon that I am so longing for again.

The work continues at our house. A new back door has been put in but the dining room still isn't painted and the new dishwasher is at least in the kitchen. My craft room is far from being completed but.....we have a room and a plan for now.

I am going to try to start regular posting next week.

For now I am going to show you the new downloads available for My Digital Studio.
