Happy Saturday!

I hope spring has sprung in your neck of the woods.  I live in a climate where it's always warm ~ then hot, but I used to love seeing those buds peeping up through the ground. 
So, with the advent of spring, do you like to break out the spring/summer colors?  I recently found this yummy 6 x 6 paper pack over at Joann's.  It's Embellish by Dena and I wasn't familiar with this product, but just loved the yummy spring/summer colors.  I'm planning on creating some Mother's Day cards with it.

I also recently ordered this yummy summer collection by Echo Park.

Does this "scream summer" or what?
I also thought I'd do a little follow-up to Mary Jo's post about how she stores some of her scrapbook supplies. 
I've been looking and looking for the perfect sized basket for the 12 x 12 sheets of patterned paper that I know I'll be using ~ so I want it them out where they're handy.  I finally found a basket that was the perfect size.   It also HAD to have sides that went straight down.  It bugs me if my paper can't sit flat.  Here's a picture of my basket full of patterned paper.
Here are pictures of the sides.

If you're wondering how I made my dividers, I just used 12 x 12 pieces of chipboard (the ones that come with all of my online orders) and I used white cardstock (doubled) to write the name of the manufacturer/theme on.  I used strapping tape and taped the front and the back (to the chipboard).
I got this little cutie to hold some of my supples ~ it matches the big basket.  I can carry it back and forth to my work table.  (Of course, I wish I'd gotten more of these, so I'll pick them up next time.)
I have converted my walk-in closet to house a lot of my supplies.  That way, I can just shut the doors and it doesn't look like such a mess in my scraproom.  My hubby built me an organizational unit that has different sized "cubbies" in it.  I have lots of 6 x 6 paper pads, so the small cubbies are perfect for those, plus lots of other things.
I bought the little containers at the Dollar Spot at Target and have embellishments in them.
Here's a picture of my closet.

As you can see, I'm big on "containerizing".  I also love that I have "room to grow".
Hope you've enjoyed a peek into my scraproom organization.
Thanks for stopping by today.
