Pet Me I'm Irish

This year Luna decided to sport her Irish pride on St. Patrick's Day.

Details: Both papers are from Little Yellow Bicycle's Lucky Me collection. The canvas title and clovers are also from the Lucky Me collection. Glad I finally got to use these papers, I won them forever ago at Archiver's.

Congo River Putt Putt

No vacation is complete without playing a round of miniature golf. The place we went to in Tampa, Congo River, had live gators throughout the course! You could feed the gators if you wanted to. As usual, I lost.

Details: Paper is Country Fields from the One Fall Day line by Bella Blvd. Journaling circle is by October Afternoon. Letters are Thickers by American Crafts.

Adam & Beth

This past November we were able to join Adam & Beth on their wedding day in Tampa, FL. They had the cutest boutonnieres made out of vintage buttons! The table numbers were also vintage buttons! It was so cute. And I loved their chocolate brown, orange and green color scheme. We had a blast, right down to the after party at Bahama Breeze.

Felt flower clips are from Making Memories's Paperie collection in greenhouse. Buttons are by Scenic Route and orange thread in by We R Memory Keepers.

Chihuly in Tampa

Last November we visited the Morean Arts Center in Tampa, FL to see the only permanent Chihuly gallery. Sadly, they wouldn't let you take pictures. They had some amazing chandeliers, sea horses, and spheres. You should really check it out. I even purchased my own tiny Chihuly. We then went across the street to soak up the park and bay.

Details: Paper is Stillness from SEI's Moonrise collection. Letters are by Making Memories.

Golden birthday bash

I am having a party the end of October to celebrate my golden birthday (turning 29 on the 29th) instead of my usual Halloween party. I hope its a blast. I will share party decor pictures as they are done.

Details: Paper is Orange Sorbet from Bazzill Basics' Two Scoops line. Lantern stamps are from American Crafts' Terrace collection. "you're invited" stamp is by Hero Arts.
