Summer Fun!

I cannot believe how fast the weeks are flying by! Today, I'm lucky enough to have some help with the boys - a relative of mine has twin girls who live just a few blocks away and they came to play with the boys, giving me some time to craft and blog!

This past weekend we went to another wedding. I was so excited when we got the invitation - it was cream with black text and had a bright orange ribbon tied around it. I knew I had to make a coordinating card for the couple and this is what I came up with...

I used the Tissue Paper Technique that was featured in one of Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday challenges a few weeks ago. I L-O-V-E this technique and have used it on several projects since.
A few days ago, my friend Katie and I took our boys for a walk. Her little guy is almost a year old already and next summer when we go for walks, she will be needing a double stroller as well!
I snapped this picture of the boys yesterday while they were sitting in their Bumbo chairs. I love how it looks like Ashton is telling Ezra a great story. He's actually just yawning though!
It's beautiful here today! Looking and feeling like summer, I sure hope it lasts through the weekend so we can enjoy the outdoors on the long holiday weekend!

Enjoy the day!

We had a very busy weekend...2 weddings and a graduation party! I managed to find time to make cards for each event, too! Here's the first one I have to share...

The smudge by the sentiment is from my camera lens. I guess I'd rather have it there instead of on the card itself, but it's still irritating me! I used the In Bloom impression plate on the Aqua Mist layer and wrapped the Vintage Cream card in Jute Button Twine. I am in love with this color combo!

And here is the family at my cousin Jeri's wedding! (Congrats Jeri & Seth!)
The boys were wonderful the entire day! Yes, they are usually good babies, but they were exceptionally good during the whole celebration! They slept through the ceremony, sat contently in their car seats while we at supper, and even tolerated being passed around until 11:00PM while we chatted with family and did a little dancing!

Enjoy the day!

7 weeks!

I will get around to posting cards again, but these days anything that I make is a last minute project that I give away before I have a chance to take a photo of it. You'd think I was a new mom to twins or something! ;)

Our boys are already 7 weeks old! They have each gained over 2 lbs already - that means when I carry them both in their car seats I'm lifting more than 45 lbs. I am going to have some major muscles! We are adjusting pretty well to life with children. I actually don't think things could go much smoother than they are! The days are flying by way to quickly so I am holding on to every moment knowing that September 1st will be here before I know it and I will have to go back to work.

The dryer just beeped at me (I hear that sound a lot these days!) so I best be going. I will leave you with a few pictures of the boys...

Enjoy the day!
