I am a wife to Charles, whom I love and is my rock. I am a mother to 3 children and Temple is my only child still at home. Charles, Temple and I are transplants from New York City. We moved to Florida in November 2004. I am daughter to Mary (aka Thelma of Thelma and Louise!). I am big Sis to Deb. I work full time for a large (and very sound) regional bank located in the southeast. I love to read and sew home dec items. But my passion which has steadily grown since 2007 when I started is Scrapbooking. Hence the genesis of this Blog, so that I may share with you this wonderful hobby.
I can't believe it's been almost 2 weeks since I last posted. I've been dealing with some medical problems lately that has me a bit self-absorbed. I'm home today because I have a doctor's appt this afternoon to go over the results of some special blood tests that she had me do.
First I want to start off with the Tellen's Place Challenge this week which is "Going to the Chapel!" That's right, we want to see your wedding projects!
Charles and I got married 8 years ago and I've been scrapping for about 4 years now--I realized that I never did any LOs of our wedding. We were married at a beautiful Bed and Breakfast Inn in Hyde Park, New York. Our wedding dinner took place at a great restaurant right on the Hudson River. Thinking back on that magical day has prompted me to continue scrapping my wedding day and create a wedding scrapbook. So look for more postings of my wedding day! And I'll start with this LO!
Here's some details:
I sprayed these chipboard letters with Tattered Angels shimmer mists. And I must comment on my fabulous hat--It's just fabulous ;D
These chipboard embellies are so old that I almost forgot I had them, but I'm glad I remembered because they were perfect for this LO.
I also tried my hand at some hand sewing that I've seen popping up on LOs all over the web.
I created a pocket out of this picture where I was able to slide my tag in with my journaling
You must go over to Tellen's Place and join in on the fun! I didn't post Tellen's Place Challenge from last week which was Father's Day. Since I know you played along last week, I'm sure you saw my card posted there!!! Temple and I will be presenting this card to Charles on Sunday. He is so no frills and a less is more kind of guy that I decided to keep this card sweet and simple. Charles is such an active guy that he's also gonna love Edward on his skateboard.
On to my Birthday Blog Candy Giveaway. When I sent my winners (Shari - 1st pick; Sandra - 2nd pick; Terry - 3rd pick) their goodies I included this card in the packages asking them to create a project for me to post here. These lovely ladies did not disappoint!
Not only did Terry make these beautiful tags, but she actually sent them to me. The family tag was for Charles and you can see the beautiful pink tag has my name on it and Temple's has her name. You really have to see these tags in person to truly appreciate the work that went into them.
Rose Petal did several projects which are totally awesome! My favorite is that really cute box!
Cricutrookie did a wonderful LO of her daughter and little friend ;D and used some of the goodies I sent her on the project!
Well, I have gotten to the end of this post, and I'll try not to stay away so long next time. I've actually done a couple of LOs of Temple to include in her School scrapbook that I'll share with you later.
