My Scrapbook Room

This is my scrapbook room.  You enter from the right of the tv.  Above you will notice a Nolan Ryan framed baseball ticket what was actually signed by him.  My sons gave this to   their dad several years ago.  I love Audrey Hepburn and my daughter in law gave me this pretty stick on of her.  I decided to place it on my closet door.  The little black bag is from The Crafty Scrapper which I am on their design team.

On this corner of the room is an antique shelf which belonged to my mother.  She gave this to me about 15 years ago.  I have a lot of paints, inks, punches, etc. displayed on it.  

 This is my desk that I do all my layouts on.  I  have my grandson's Beta fish (which I must feed once a day or else)!!  My friend Patty gave to me this pretty frame with a pin cushion where I have many of my stick pins on.  Of course there is the phone and my caddy with all my little goodies that I need for my layouts.

This is the window where my desk sits.  Patty made this banner that says Create which goes great with my color scheme.  Of course it is the Texas Longhorns colors!!  My whole family is a fan of the college and we have all been born and raised in Texas.  However, during the early spring and fall I love to work with the window open.  The nice breeze is so calming and I love to hear the little birds chirping!

This  little armoire belonged to my son Chris.  He was getting rid of it so I said I would love to have it to store all my scrapbooking items.  Inside I have all my papers, ribbons, flowers, and even my Cricut.  

 On this third wall is a white table and a chair which belonged to my grandmother.  She will be 100 in August and she asked me if I would like to have it.  She bought it in 1928 and was the first thing she got after she was married.  It has been painted several colors but at the moment it is white.  I keep my sewing machine on it which is really handy.  On the left side you will see my husbands diploma from The University of Texas at Arlington in 1973.  He received this for Bachelor of Business Administration. Underneath is my yearly calendar with pictures of Audrey Hepburn.  The rest are several layouts of my grandchildren minus the youngest for I have not completed that layout yet.  The rest are mini albums of my grandmother and the other is a Tea Party and it is a baby shower we gave for my daughter in law.  The other layout was done by Patty which is a layout of the two of us at a birthday party she gave me at the Sanford House.  That was a very good day!!  There are two little plaques and one says "Work like you don't need the money, Love like you have never been hurt, Sing like no one is listening, Dance like no one is watching".  The other plaque says "Seize The Day".

This is my computer desk and printer.  I have various photos of the kids and lots of little goodies that was given to us on the shelves.  The Cameron Family flag is above the desk.  We sponsored a hole at a golf tournament which was to raise funds for Arlington Charities sponsored by The Junior League of Arlington.
Of course I had to show the chair that we all love to sit while working on our computer.  It is Texas Longhorn.  Yeah!!!!

This is the closet where I store a lot of my scrapbooking supplies.  I have drawers full of stamps, papers, die cuts, and my Cuttle Bug.

This is the other side of the closet where I store many of my photos.  I have 2 more closets full of photos because with 4 children and 4 grandchildren I have a lot of photos.  I also have my  totes and if you notice I have many of my completed layouts hanging.  When I have enough of each child I will place them into an album.

Last but not least is the armoire where I keep my everyday items that I use.  

Thank you so much for looking at my scrapbook room.  It has taken me awhile to get it all together but I rather like the look.

Hugs - Ginger
