Wedding fever

My goodness, every where I go, young people are getting married! There are at least 4 young couples that I know of (my son included) getting married this month. I am on a roll making wedding cards. Here is one that I sat down and made today. This one is made with bits and pieces of from the Kit and Kaboodles February kit, a stamp from Stampendous that I embossed with periwinkle blue embossing powder, and some flowers from my stash. It doesn't really photograph well, the colors are really sharp in person, and it reminds me of "something old, something new...something borrowed, something blue."

Wedding Toes

OK, this is too funny, even for me! I was out doing some shopping in preparation for my trip to Dave and Jenna's wedding. I was browsing in the cosmetics aisle and came across this nail polish that is almost a match to my dress for the wedding. How weird is that??? Well, I came home and had to see how they looked together. The verdict is in,although the boys say that they look more like jellybeans than wedding toes! Wonder what mom will say, as she shudders at the colors I use to paint my toenails. But hey---we live in Florida, and our toes are almost always peaking out for everyone to see!!

My mom and I flew out to San Diego for a few days. We hadn't told the kids, but we planned our visit around Jenna's bridal shower. We flew in on Thursday, and the shower was on Saturday. We hung out with Jenna's parents, visited with the kids for a day (they came to San Diego) and had a super time! Here we are at the shower...from left to right is my mom, me, Dave, Jenna, Harvey (Jenna's dad), and Anne(Jenna's mom). We had a fun time at the shower, meeting some more of Jenna's family and a few friends. We also spent time at San Diego's Wild Animal Park and the quaint mining town of Julian--famous for their apples. Mom and I hardly ever get any girl time, but when we do, we sure have fun!

We just got home late last night, but I promise to post more on our trip...

Summertime has officially begun!

Now that Memorial Day has come and gone, summertime is officially here! Now that school is out and the re-organizing and cleaning is done to my satisfaction, I am ready to dive back into my blogging and crafting. As much as I try to get things done while I am working full-time, it is difficult to blog frequently. I apologize to those of you who enjoy coming to visit me!
Now, we all would love to have a body like this, but we can still dream, right? Here is my take on a cute little bikini card. The papers and brads are from one on my favorite companies (Kaisercraft, the card base is blush blossom (SU) and the ribbon is from my stash. Although hubby wasn't willing to admit he likes this card, my teenaged boys adore it!
