A Mini Book to Start the Week

Happy Monday everyone! I have been a little mini book crazy lately. Here is a mixed paper mini that I made a few weeks ago. The cover is two envelopes put together. Everything is held together with ribbon.
Here is the inside, I used a variety of blue and green papers that I had in my stash.
A page with a clear envelope to hold small things.

Now all I need to do is figure out what pictures to fill it up with!

Hope everyone has a great week!

what I have been up to lately...

August has been on very busy month! I have been going to concerts. (above photo is of The Killers playing Lollapalooza)
Spent some time in New York City.
Saw Jason Mraz.
*Made 200 flowers for Jen's wedding.
*Played Nanny for a week to two little girls.

It's no wonder this month has disappeared from me! I have also been working on some other projects the past few weeks that I will show off this week, even some knitting, I promise!

Hope your August has been fun-filled!

time flies when you're having fun...

Summer seems to be just flying by! I guess it doesn't help that I haven't really been home all that much this summer. I was inspired by this post to do a book that documents all of the things going on this summer, May - August and I can't believe it is almost done! I have been adding photos, tickets and various other items collected from the summer. Here is a preview of the book, I will show you some shots of the inside later on!

Jen's Bridal Shower

So last weekend this is what I did in LA. My friend Jen is getting married in September so her sister's and I threw her a bridal shower. We did all the decorations ourselves and we loved how it turned out.
Cute table decorations that we created. Jen loved them so much she might use them for the cake reception they are having at their church after the wedding.

We had a lot of fun with her family and friends and it was a great afternoon even though it got a little warm!
Here is everyone playing some games that we had set up.
And her cake that matched the invitations that I created for the party.
I love this picture of Jen and her Mom, too cute!
Michele, Jen's Mom, Jen and Melanie all the girls in the family.
Melanie, Jen and I after the party. It was a busy trip but a lot of fun!
