Pagemaps 2 Layout #6 and Scraproom Update

I'm so excited. I bought my airline tickets for the Cricut Circle Meet-Up in Vegas. I can hardly wait to get there and meet as many Circlets as I can.

For todays post I thought I would do a little update in todays post because it has been one week since cleaning my scraproom and starting my challenge to use my scraps. You can see in this first picture my pile of scraps on the corner of my desk.

This is the view looking into my room from the doorway. I have quite a few jetmax cubes and they are all full.
I got the paper holders from a local scrapbook store that went out of business. Actually my sweet husband went into the store and made them an offer for me. He's the best.
I would love to have hardwood floors in my room one of these days. Not sure I'm willing to take everything out of the room to do it though.
This picture below shows some of the scraps I pulled out of the pile to use on my next sketch.

And this is the sketch I used. It is page 30 from PageMaps 2.

Here is my layout. The right side is from the sketch.  I left off the title and embellishments so that I can personalize it later. I really like how it came out. I thought it would be too bright and busy, but the solid yellow background and white photo mats calmed it down a bit. I'm thinking this will be a birthday layout.

I'm getting anxious to start putting pictures on my layouts. I may not be able to wait for the scrap pile to be used up before adding them. And trust me, I have a lot of pictures to choose from. I'm a year and a half behind on my scrapbooking. These layouts will definitely help get me caught up though.
See you again soon. Cindy
