Small Reno Turned Larger Project

Decided during the Let's Scrap blog hop that I wanted to make a place for my sewing machine in my scrap room; knowing I would sew on more layouts if I didn't have to bring out my machine every time I wanted to use it. So anyway, getting the sewing machine set-up ended up including some new shelves, then I had to buy pretty matching storage boxes, then I had to run out and buy pretty matching jars for my flowers and buttons (thank God for the Dollar Store), then I had to sort through buttons, flowers and embellishments. I am sure you get the idea and I am sure you have all been there at one time or another. My only regret is that I forgot to take a picture when the room was in complete chaos. Now I have a new problem; I go into the my scrap room to scrap and all I want to do is admire my new storage.
Here are pictures of the new shelves and as you can see the sewing machine is ready to go.

Elizna Parsons has issued a month long challenge at Let's Scrap. Follow this link and you will find all the details.

I finished my take on the challenge last at the first of the week just needed a chance to take a photo of the layout. I have been playing with burlap on my layouts and cards; this layout was the perfect opportunity to use burlap again.













Here is a close up of the burlap leaves, I love how they turned out.
