Slight Detour

 So I have been still working on the Summer Vibes layouts and I have hit a bit of a block.
I have a layout done in all red and white with the gingham on it as well and I love where it is
just not sure where it is going. I tried stamping/coloring and cutting the
Chillin' with my Gnomies stamps  from the set shown below
 (link in the picture will take you to the CTMH site)

I have tried it on the layout and its just not right - cute set though.
Maybe its the colors I am using?
So I ordered some SVG files on etsy to see if I like them and lost my interest in the layout.
I know Crazy right! 

But in my defense I have been staring at a pile of boxes and tubs that needed a home.
Its my SU Project Life cards and the CTMH Picture my Life cards
So I started looking for ideas online and came across a couple that made the most sense
for my space. Just wasn't wanting to wait for shipping so we headed to the Container store
They have these plastic storage bins that are very reasonably priced and they fit the cards I have.

The bins range from $2.99 - $14.99
I have 3 at $2.99 here and 2 at $6.99 
Still finding all the cards I have stuffed in drawers and boxes around the office.
These little drawers (What I call them since they have the drawer pull on the front)
have removable dividers which come in handy when the drawer isn't completely full.
(as you can see in the picture) The dividers I made for each card set were not perfect
but they work well and I'm happy with them for now. Its more the size that the label printed.
Then I was able to put in the divider that came with the drawer to keep everything upright.

Here is a picture from The container stores website and if you
click on the picture it will take you to the bins. 

Hopefully tomorrow I can get the red layout done and move onto the next one.
I feel like there is about 3 more layouts in the papers I have.
Cross your fingers
