Baja Wedding



Here are the layouts I did for my Mom and Dad's wedding.  If you look closely, you'll notice that I used the owl I did last week on the first page.

Aren't their clothes awesome?!  My mom was quite the dresser...always so fashionable and so Audrey (Hepburn).  And Dad, he always wore suits (to work). And black.  I'll have to load one of the pages of them at a party.  All the men wore black, slim ties...and they all smoked.  So early 60's.  Dad wasn't a wise guy in the Badabing way..but he was pretty smart....one of those geeky mechanical engineers that worked on nuclear stuff...mostly reactor stuff...not the bombs.  You know...just sayin'.

Fun and simple design, but geesh...it took all evening on Thursday to put together.

Enjoy your weekend!  We are getting some wintery weather....finally, giving me a chance to hunker down and craft!

Oh, and no post is complete without a quick shot of the lil dude....


We were out walking along the waterfront in town in this shot.  He was a bit tired at this point, because he had been so frisky exploring all the new sites and smells.

Poor puppy....he looks so "dog" tired
What would we have ever done without Kodak film back in the day. Now they have gone bankrupt. So sad:( Love you creation with the vintage photo and your fur baby is adorable.

Rebecca your layouts are gorgeous. I just love the way you have used four embossed panels behind the beautiful photo of your parents on their wedding day, such a fabulous idea. And your pup is so cute.

I love the pic of your parents...you're right about the early 60s look (reminds me of my parents). The owl is super cute. I love how you put the brads through its eyes (which sounds a little psycho, but it looks good!).

Warm Little Sweetness

I must admit that I have become quite fond of making little bitty sweaters.   It all started on a recent trek to India traveling for business. I needed to carry just enough yarn to keep my busy bee hands occupied during the evenings in my hotel room. There are just so many hats a person can make, right?  Anyway, having limited quantities of yarn, I decided to give a small sweater a go.  This is the first one I created. I had just the perfect little buttons to add! (It really is amazing what one might find in their cosmetic bag) I love it.  This sweater is also featured on the Pinque Peacock blog   since I used her buttons.  (Go visit and see the buttons up close) This makes the sweater a really one of a kind project! This next one is perfect for a little preemie.  It's so tiny, but features a great big snowflake! Close up of the snowflake…. I also sewed on one of the StampinUp! Frosted Finishes Embellishments.  I think it finished it off nice

Inspirational Unity Blog Hop

I have three huge passions related to art: photography, jewelry making, and paper crafts. Above combines two of those passions: jewelry making and paper crafts. The necklace featured is a gift for a friend. I used Unity Stamp Company stamps in all the projects shown in the picture above. If you look closely, you'll even see that I used the Hawaiian Border and the swirls in the lambs fleece of Love Ewe to make the bronze charms in the jewelry above! Besides the stamps used, other materials included Bronz Clay, antiqued bronze findings, and various beads. Of course, what gift isn't complete without packaging? You can find the tutorial for the bag Here . Paper and cardstock, punches, and ribbon used are from Stampin Up! while the stamp used is from Unity's March Kit of the Month . People who know me know how I strive to use humor everyday...and especially to make light of otherwise stressful situations. So, my quote for the day has absolutely nothing to do with my project. I
