Got it from Mod Cloth. I think that Mod Cloth is a new favorite site of mine. They have so many adorable houseware stuff. I need it all!
Anyways. I better get back to finishing up my Washington D.C. album. I have just a few more pictures to scrap and then I am finished.

Here is an altered birdhouse that I made for my stepmom for her birthday. She has a whole tree dedicated to birdfeeders and a few birdhouses. I got the unfinished wood birdhouse from Hobby Lobby. I know the pictures aren't the greatest. I have to work on better photography skills!
The front of the birdhouse. I painted the edges and undersides a turquoise-y blue color.
The back of the birdhouse. I used We R Memory Keepers paper. I do not remember the name of the line. I will have to get back to you on that!
This is the roof of the birdhouse. I originally had the roof covered in just the yellow paper. I didn't like how it looked so I took my scalloped border punch and made "shingles" for the roof. It looks 100% better with the "shingles."
I also used scalloped strips of paper to cover up the uneven cut lines.

While I was making them their anniversary card, I was cutting out a parenthese and realized that is kinda looks like a little mustache. See it at the bottom?? Kinda does, doesn't it?
So what did I do? I had to take a picture of it like a mustache!
Here is the finished card. I must say that I like the way this card turned out! I lifted it from a Stampin'UP! catalog.
I have been working on my Washington D.C. trip album for what seems like forever. I think I actually started it shortly after we got back from the trip in 2006, but have pushed it to the side thinking that I will get it done eventually. I started back on the album when my church had their monthly crop figuring that would be the perfect time to actually finish this. This is just an on going project and I am almost done, I can see the finish line!

Over at Scrapbook.com, they have monthly challenges and for the month of June I joined the Scraplift the Person Before You challenge (long name... makes my fingers tired just typing it!).
I lifted this layout by AllAmy...
This picture is of my stepmom and Turk Face at Bear Country at the Black Hills. I love this picture of these two looking at the flowers! Turk Face is so attached to her grandma it kinda makes me jealous :) I lifted Kristi (scrappinnelly from sb.com) from our critique group challenge where we had to lift another member of the group.
Look at that adorable lip on little Turk Face! I love this little girl soooooooooooo much!
