Midweek - CSI Case File #43

Well I'm back to work tomorrow for two days but wanted to play along with this week's Case File - LOVE black and yellow together.  Prompted me to scrap some of these prom pictures my daughter would as soon forget.  You know past boyfriend's are just supposed to be forgotten but those were important times for her at that time so scrap them I will. I'm still working on getting everything ready to put this house on the market.  Started painting my scrap room which was the MAJOR chore.  There's so much "stuff" in here I've had to move one corner - paint ceiling, walls and then do baseboards, etc before moving all the "stuff" back and moving on to another section.  Needless to say this room, of course, has a vaulted ceiling which makes it even worse together with three windows.  FUN FUN FUN!!! I'm ALMOST done - have a few little painting projects after this but nothing big.  After that I'm tackling the tile in the shower - some of the grout looks worse for wear and I went and got all the toys it said I need to fix it - we will see how that goes.  Today I took time to scrap - I deserve it! For this page I used some Core'dination's Graphic 45 cardstock - LOVE this line!  Then there's some May Art's Ribbon and some Helmar glue to put it all together.

Happy Saturday and US as well as CSI

I'm down in Houston today - we had to have Brandy's car fixed and now are returning it to her as well as spending an evening with her.  Went down on Friday and are headed home today - back to work tomorrow but only for one day - then two more days off - YEAH!. Have been painting my study/scraproom and can't even begin to tell you what a chore it's been!  Not only is there wall to wall furniture and scrap supplies but it has one of those gable ceilings which of course needs painting as well.  Gearing up to put the house on the market so painting everything.  I'm SOOOO sore.  Had to move a section - paint - finish the baseboards out - then move it all back - move on to another section.  AND I KNOW, yes for a fact, that paint has little feet - they crawl under the plastic that I have laid out to catch those little drops and crawl UNDER it so that I spend another hour scraping and cleaning up those little monsters that got under there! 
First up is my card for Unscripted Sketches this week - used some Basic Grey for this together with an SRM  sentiment sticker.

Next is this week's Case File from CSI - love these bold colors and while I was cleaning out and backing up I found some of Brandy's old dance pictures and so I decided to use them again - they so fit this Case File.

Then last weekend we made a fast trip to Fort Worth and Arlington to attend a family reunion of Charlie's mom's family.  These were some sweet pictures Charlie's Aunt - the only one still alive from his Mom's family  - Evelyn.  Charlie with all this tact told her definitely needed a hair cut - he didn't like her hair long.  But she's still just a hoot and love spending time with her.
