Family Album

My Grandma (Dad’s Mom) is turning 84 this week and in celebration of that my Aunt came up with an idea to have each member of the family create a couple of pages to put in an album.  For instance my Dad (well my sister did it for him) had a couple of pages of him hiking, My sister did a page or two of her and her husband and I completed three pages of my family.  Keep in mind that my Dad has 4 siblings and each of them has at least 3 kids.  Most of those are now married with children of their own, needless to say this album is going to be large and a great collection of everyone’s creativity!

I completed my pages and they hit the mail today with just enough time to arrive to my Aunt before the celebration… here are the pages…DSC02008

This is our title page.  I used Kraft Paper with Certainly Celery behind the photo and cut out the letters in So Saffron. 






This page is certainly celery with some captions and stickers as embellishment.  I love the simple layout and think that my Grandma will appreciate it too.




To the left you have Trenton!  In the middle it is me and my father before the wedding and below is Jaydon and Mark at a Wrestling Tournament.  I hope that she likes the pages.

The new catalog is going to be available on July 1st and is packed with new products and ideas!  If you would like to be on the list to get one please email me.  They are free to anyone who places an order ($30.00 minimum before shipping and tax), hosts a workshop, or joins one of my clubs.  For more information please contact me. 


This last week!

We did it!  On June 6th at 2 o’clock in the afternoon Mark & I were married at our homeIMG_2639 in Poulsbo and it could not have been anymore perfect!   The weather was great, not too hot like the week before and completely free of any rain!  Everything went off as planned and there was no drama (that we are aware of)!  The boys looked very IMG_2603handsome in their suits.  Trenton could not wait to get his jacket off, but Jaydon wore his all day and it looked like it was barely worn by the end of the night! 

We enjoyed the whole day!  We had rented a bounce houseIMG_2659 for all of the kiddos and it got a lot of use over the entire weekend.  After all was said and done Mark surprised me by taking me to Clear Water Casino resort and spa for the evening.  He had even arranged for the boys to stay with our great friends for the night!  I am so fortunate to have such a thoughtful man in my life.

There are a ton of pictures and I will probably post more in the days to come but wanted to give you a sneak peak of our special day.
