Happy Monday! I'm still recovering from a long weekend (but feels like a very short one). We were super busy this weekend, but it was a lot of fun visiting family and friends..
My weekend started on Friday since we had furlough... I had to make a quick wedding card for my cousin who's getting married. Since I couldn't attend the ceremony, I had to make it this week to give to my mom who was planning on going. I guess the reason why I procrastinated so long was because I haven't made a wedding card in such a long time. I think I'm out of practice! I guess we are at the point in our lives where most of our friends are married, so weddings have slowed down. Anyway, I remembered a Dandelion image that I had and decided to use that as my focal point. Tracy reminded me of some cool striped satin paper at Island Scrapbooking that looks great on wedding cards, so I picked some up on Friday and got to work.
Since I was giving $$, I decided to make a pocket to hold the gift.
Here's a close up of the front of the card...
And the reason for the rush rush on making the card is because we were headed to Honolulu for a very special event! Can you guess what we did by looking at the next picture??
OK- so that wasn't the best photo, but they wouldn't let us take pictures. Did you guess? We took Akemi to see Beauty and the Beast! I think I wanted to go more than she did! It was really good- better than I expected. Akemi really got into it- she was laughing and even cried (talking uncontrollably) during the performance. She said it was because Belle left the Beast. When we started talking about it again she said... "Stop talking about it or I'll start crying again!!".
In addition to other numerous errands, we also stopped by to see our friend's new baby. Sigh... hard to believe Akemi used to be that small!
Here's Akemi, Uncle Dayne and baby..
And here's the proud papa! Darn- forgot to take a photo of the new Mama! Next time.
Hope you have a great week!
