From Palomas Nest
::sigh:: white is such a beautiful color.
Anyway, not being super creative lately. I am having vision problems that's really stressing me out. I hope it gets resolved soon and that it's nothing serious. In the mean time, it has really reminded me on how precious life is....must live each day to the fullest!

I accidentally found that my Copics fit perfectly into the little Coffee Bean tea bag tin container and this immediately triggered a tin makeover and here it is!
I felt so accomplished dressing something up that would've otherwise ended up in the trashcan. It's like I gave it new life or something...haha. Maybe I am just easily satisfied....but I am totally addicted! More to come for sure!
What have you dressed up lately?

1. Photo shoot
2. Catchup with wedding planning tasks
3. Get some photos framed and hung
4. Go to a bridal dress trunk show! ( I am excited to do this one!)
5. Get some scrapbooking work done.
Nice to do:
1. Design my "Save the date"s
2. Create Claudine Hellmuth's Sitting Pretties.
I'm probably not going to get to everything but will try!
Anyway, I also want to share some layouts I did recently~

Here's a layout I did using this technique:
In the 3rd photo you can really see how the paint kind of "morphs" the photo in to the paper.

Last year in October I had taken a 2 week trip to Europe and I had the most amazing time! I hit 5 cities - Paris, Berlin, Prague, Venice and Rome- (actually 6 if you count Vatican City!) and went hog wild with my camera. I racked up approximately 3000 snapshots. Even to this day, I am only done sorting through 2/5 of it. Awesome. Anyway, the idea of scrapping every worthy photos from that trip really scares me. You have got to work up to it, you know? So here's my warmup round - 5 city mini book -
I am still trying to figure out a way to scrap about 1000 travel photos efficiently....any ideas?

I present to you - the take out menu book!
This book is created almost entirely out of Studio Calico's "Over The Rainbow" kit. This kit has got some amazing color combos in it. At first I was intimidated since I am more of a "Neutral" girl but this didn't turn out half bad! I also coated the covers with a sealer so it won't tear nor fade. Now my takeout menus have a colorful home. Yay!
