Monday Musings week #2

Got my Monday project all done. Check out the beautiful new paperpack, coming September 1st, called Magnifique. What beautiful colors, and did I happen to mention...they are my wedding colors exactly!! I used a new stamp set as well - D1438 Circle of Love - for the awesome peacock and new colors, Pear and Lagoon, throughout the layout. And whada think about our new flip flops?! Aren't they cool. Finally, they come in three new sizes to create even more options for pictures on your single layouts. I show two different ways to use them - horizontal and vertical - and used all three new sizes. Enjoy!

Beach themed picture frame

OMG only about three weeks or so before my wedding! I am getting so excited but nervous too. Just today I sat down to wrap presents and forgot all about the place cards. Since it's such a small wedding (only about 16 guests), it didn't take me long. Anyhoo, I wanted to share the couple gift that I put together based on a great idea that I saw at the CTMH silent auction in DC a few weeks back. Once I did one, the project became simpler and really didn't take long at all. This was my first attempt and I was anal enough to actually measure. I purposely left the lighter spot in the middle until I figured out shell placement. The original canvas was 8 x 10 and will nicely hold a regular sized photo. And yes, I glued all those shells on and the sand on (LOVE Liquid Glass!!). If you'd like detailed instructions, please email me for a supply list and instructions! Enjoy!
