make it monday

Hi! i went sorting through some of my patterned paper today to play along with this week's make it monday challenge. I have a really hard time combining patterned papers sometimes so this was a tough one for me :)
I went with a couple different My Mind's Eye lines and a Studio Calico exclusive paper and combined it with the Lock & Key and Fillable Frames # 4 Papertrey Ink stamp sets.

In chattier other news:
  • I'm in the middle of redoing my studio again, Jeff and i did some construction on my desk to change it to a standing desk (hooray!) and I added some nifty furniture from ikea, i'm still saving for my expedit shelf so I won't post pictures until i get that in here!
  • In movie news, if you haven't seen the Avengers yet, go do so immediately! (that means you Mom!) Don't waste your money on Dark Shadows (and this is coming from a big Johnny Depp fan, big disappointment. What to Expect When You're Expecting was funny. (a little scary for someone trying to conceive lol) and last but not least, Battleship was pretty good/okay-ish, the special effects were awesome but i felt like the aliens really didn't have their heart in it :)
  • I've caught up to the season finales on all of my favorite shows and now i can't wait for fall to get here! I need the next episodes of The Big Bang Theory, Once Upon a Time, The Vampire Diaries, and Smash! (Gossip Girl finally disappointed me enough that i won't be watching it next season...)
  • I have about 4 boxes of stuff for my LSS consignment sale (i'm hoping to earn enough for a cameo!!!) any tips on pricing? I have a bunch of bags of 50 pieces of patterned paper and a lot of Quickutz including 2x2 and 4x4 shapes and some alphabets in 2x2, 4x8, and cookie cutters. any pricing advice would be super appreciated. :)
Well that's it for now, i'll be back tomorrow with two more weeks of Project Life :)

make today a good one!
