I Adore You - CMS #39

I've been away from my blog for a couple of weeks.  I'm desperately trying to get some projects done around the house before the kiddos are out of school.  It seems like I have a bunch of half finished projects.  I guess that is one of the negatives of multi-tasking.

I've been working on a side table that I picked up from craigslist earlier in the year.  I knew that I wanted it to be yellow, but my first attempt was way too pastel for my liking.  The second take was a bit brighter, but my husband said in his kindest voice, "That's a little bright, don't you think?"  I'm currently in the process of decoupaging the tops (2 layers) with old pages of books.  I think I'll still have to antique it a bit more before the poly goes on.

I'm hoping I'll have more time to put into my blog as the boys start their summer studying.  We are working on Spanish again this summer, math facts, states and capitals, and of course the reading contest they do through the library.  This should give momma plenty of scrappy time...  *grin*

Alright, below is my take of the color combo and sketch from Color Me Scrappy.  I struggled with this one.  I'm not sure if it was the colors or the sketch.  Either way, time to move on...

Did you know that CMS is having a DT Call?  Well, they are!  You still have a week to get your application in.  You can check out all the details here.
