Friends, Meet Hedgie...

Isn't he the sweetest? I found him at the Dollar General in the gardening section for such a bargain I couldn't justify leaving him there on the shelf. So the kids and I brought him home and he is currently residing on my TV stand- soon he will be moving to my garden once I actually get all that dirt turned and flowers planted...I'm a bit late on that task.

This week is insane. And this time it has nothing to do with my scheduling. We have a wedding to attend tonight!!! It's at a beautiful location- I am so excited to take pictures. The ceremony is small and will be done by the JOP. The real wedding will actually take place in Poland, next year. We *may* go if we have the funds to get us there and to sight-see also. I really can't justify going to Poland and not go to Aushwitz.
Dinner is after the ceremony. I am excited to do out since it's been a while since we have gone out with others. We usually just go out with the kids.

Saturday night a couple of friends came over to scrap. Of course we did WAY more chatting than scrapping but I did complete two LO's with the June SoML kit. Love this Love, Elsie. Elsie really did a stellar job putting this line together. It's so much fun to sit an imagine up all kinds of things to create with her Roxie line. Not to mention it is the perfect paper to scrap pics of friends.

I wanted to share with you how I did the title of this page...I simply stamped a sheet of cardstock using my MM foam stamps and some folk art acrylic paints- 2 of each letter and number. Then I used my trimmer to cut out rectangles-
This project took less than an hour and I have three different colors of letters saved in sandwich bags for later.

Don't be afraid to go off the page a bit. I really love taking the embellishments off the page - I think it adds some interest and is definitely out of my box!

Oh! One more thing. I didn't end up giving the Bride-to-Be the bath & body stuff...I found the COOLEST gift at TJ Max, my new most fav store in the world. It's a stationary box that is distressed and antiqued. It opens at the top and inside I put a box of Papyrus stationary, a set of monogrammed stationary and an adress book to match. The best part of the gift was the peacock letter opener. It has a Czech Crystal eye and is simply gorgeous. Of course every part of this gift I would haved loved to keep all for me- but I'm so glad that I found something that I know she will use since most of her family lives in Poland and it will look lovely in her home. I laughed to myself about how of course my gift had to be something related to my love and passion for paper. Typical.

I have some pics from the bridal shower that I would love some help dressing up to put in an album for the Bride. If digitally altering photos is something you are good at and enjoy doing I would love to see what you can do with these photos. They are nothing real fancy so that's why I think that some altering might be a fun way to dress them up before they are tucked into the album. I would love to see your creative ideas!
If you are interested please contact me.
