37 Life is an adventure °°°SWIRLYDOOS°°°

Finally, I feel a bit better and I have more energy! I used the June kit of Swirlydoos to make this LO. It will be a two pager, the second one to come in a few weeks. I turned 37 at the beginning of the month and I had a few friends over.

I had so much fun snipping away! The page almost "fell into place".
"Life is an adventure" refers to all the changes ahead. My pregnancy, DD starting school, our big trip etc.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment.
All the best,

Getting ready for my sister's wedding

Quite some time ago, I made the invitations for my sister's wedding. Look here for a peek. To match these invitations, I made the wedding boutonnieres. Here is a collection of them. Each one looks a bit different which I like very much. I also had to use different shades of purple since it is so hard to match colors to a photo and over skype.

And here is the bigger one for the groom.

The next item in a similar design is the guest book. I took an artist's sketchbook (the paper quality is really excellent) and covered the front. I made sure it was not too bulky, since it had to be used! I put it in a beautiful purple box to protect it from dust.

I am very happy how it all turned out (especially since I felt so bad the last few months that I could not get anything done) but I would not do it for a customer. This is something so personal and we had lots of discussions over skype how she wants it done. When I come back from the wedding in August, you will see lots and lots of LOs from the wedding since my wedding gift is her wedding album!

Thanks for stopping by!
All the best,
