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!

Those boys of yours are just too cute! And you are looking absolutely fabulous as well! Oh yes...and I love the card too! I don't know that I would have been able to pull off using orange on a wedding card, but you sure did!
