True Loves Embrace

I made this for my BFF Krista and her  new husband Daryl.  It's thier kiss right after they got married!

I hope you like it, and better yet, that you "get it".  Krista does, lol, and she likes it.  Daryl thought it was kinda creepy, as did my husband Chris!  Men....where do they come from anyways?

Here is a close up of the detail.  I used 2 8x10s and 15 4x6s to make it.  her shoulder strap is made up of peices from his flower, and his flower leaves are made up of pieces of her skin tone.  I hope that makes sense. 

I saw it in my head for three weeks before i sat down to make it, and i LOVE the way it turned out!

Happy Wedding Day Book

I just finished an order of four identical special occassion books using photos taken the day of a great friends wedding!  The books turned out absolutely adorable and i think Krista will agree that her wedding colors lend themselves to pure happiness!  White, Black and Pink with a splash of polka dots plus lots of sparkle...what could go wrong?

TOOT TOOT, AKA "Don't doubt my awesomeness!"

There are times in a girls life when she must decide whether to toot her own horn or not.  This one wasn't hard to decide!  Chris fully doubted my abilities with my spur-of-the-moment project idea...but he has since learned of my complete and total awesomness. 

My mom purchased great shoes for me for the wedding.  I do really love them.  The only problem was though, that I was worried that they didn't fully match.  See, I'm wearing a pretty white summer dress, with a cropped raspberry pink lightweight cardigan on top.  Terra is wearing a frilly white dress with a black sash and tiny black flowers along the skirt, with a gorgeous matching pink flower to put in her hair.  Chris will be in this black suit, white shirt and a pink tie that matches my cardigan.  WHITE-PINK-BLACK.  There in lies the problem.  The darn black!  I had nothing black in my outfit. 

On a spur of the moment we stopped by Payless to look at shoes (BOGO ya know!).

For some reason, i fell in love with these shoes- they are a pale lavender.  I'm not a ruffly type person, but they "spoke" to me, lol.  And heck, they were only $8 down from $25

The second i put them on, the idea hit me.  The shoes are fabric covered, and a simple design. 
So off to Hobby Lobby we went!

Yes people, I PAINTED MY SHOES, lol!  And it turned out 1000 times better than i saw in my head!

I took my time and painted (with a tiny brush) two coats of white fabric paint, pink fabric paint, and black fabric paint.   Whod a thunk it that it would actually work!  

So--what do you think?

Don't cha love it?  I know i do!

I made this for two challenges:

The layout inspiration (and boy did it inspire!) came from the Clean and Simple sketch:

And the gorgeous colors came straight from the color throwdown challenge!

I really loved thinking outside the box...I typically do not use stamps as a background type of design, but i absolutely love how this turned out, so i know i will try again in the future!

I'm so happy for you!

I made todays card on a whim (and at the last possible minute!) and really love how it turned out!

I made this for a friend, and was able to use two blog challenges as inspiration:

The Mojo Monday sketch was awesome and so much fun to play with!  I love being able to dive into my gigantic scrap pile and make something pretty!

The There She Goes Color Challenge was to use lemon yellow, agua, and grass green!  The second i saw the colors i began searching for the small scrap sheet of Basic Grey leftover from almost 3 years ago!

Perfect huh?  And easy peasy to boot!

Hope you enjoyed looking!
