YITL project completed!

For those of you who have followed me on my blog for a couple of years, you know that a minute after my oldest daughter left for college, I wiped the tear and started moving furniture. :-D That is when I made my scrap room. I'm very proud of it because I did it all by myself. Even my hubby was in shock when he got home that weekend and everything was done. He wondered if he had a room too. Umm, no honey, you have to wait until the next one leaves. LOL

Anyway, I painted the walls a light peach color with blue accents, to remind me of the beach. :-) I had the hardest time finding a window treatment and in fact, it proved impossible. So thats when I came up with the idea to do a weekly challenge to make these Year in the Life cards and make my own meaningful window treatment.

After arranging and rearranging the cards about a bazillion times, this is what I came up with. There was one space on the bottom row at the end so I made a "title card" of sorts. :-) (Sorry for the crappy pics, the lighting is terrible today and I don't know how to use my new Nikon D80 yet. Reading the manual is on the to do list this week.)

And the finished product! :-)
