Hello everyone its time for a new challenge at Cooking with Cricut. This week the challenge is -
What Did You Do This Summer? Create a Vacation/Summer themed scrapbook layout.
I am giving my Summer the title of
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
For the good I entered 17 layouts and 11 other paper made items in the County Fair this year. Everyone of my projects one a ribbon. I also got hired by the local Scrapbook store to teach classes. I taught two last month and have 5 more scheduled and the classes are filling up fast.
So now for the Bad
Well I am going to be honest with you I didn't go on any vacation this Summer.
The ruin of my "Summer Fun" actually started in mid April.
We decided to have our bathroom remodeled this Summer.
We picked out cabinets, tile, colors, mirrors, had plans drawn and were very excited.
We hired a contractor that we have know for 7 years and we have always had great luck with. After three months of excuses and lies we realized we had a big problem. So when I started this layout I thought I actually would have these lovely pictures to put on my layout showing my wonderful new spa like bathroom. However what do I have? One big torn apart bathroom.
So how did I finish my Summer -
We have had to hire a lawyer and feel out tons of paper work to bond company, State License and Better Business in hopes of getting some of our money back. For now we can't proceed until the Bond company comes out to see everything.
So for my layout here is my two pages for my pics that I hope someday to be able to share with everyone.
Our Remodel title from Handyman cut at 2 inches
Ladder cut at 5 inches
Hammer cut at 4 inches
Paint Can and brush cut at 3 inches
And the Ugly this is what my bathroom looks like. Lovely, isn't it?
Reminder- Blog Candy
Starting August 18th through August 31th I am going to draw one lucky winner by Random.org who leaves a comment and is a follower of my blog for a $10 Gift Card to Michaels.
I will also draw one lucky new follower for a goody bag. I now have 603 followers which is amazing to me.
So thank you all!Please join us for the challenge this week at CWC . I would love to see your Vacation/Summer themed layouts and live vicariously through all of you. LOL Don't forget to link up to CWC by Tuesday.
