Jen's Wedding!

Just got back from a wonderful week in Los Angeles for my friend Jen's Wedding! It was a busy week but the whole thing turned out beautifully! The whole day was a blast! (Click on pictures to see bigger)
After the ceremony we took some pictures outside where the reception was.
Me and Jen and her sisters Michele and Melanie, we were told to make her laugh which isn't that hard to do! Thanks Shannon for taking all of these pictures for me!!

The bride and I

The whole wedding party...we had some trouble all figuring out the silly poses for these pics!

So glad Shannon could come out for the day!
We had a great dinner and then spent the night dancing.
My favorite dance partner Jacob, Jen's nephew, kept me on the dance floor all night long!

We had a great night, I don't think I sat down after dinner was over!
The next day Shannon and I went to Zuma beach and saw dolphins

Then we took a trip to CLU to see the Gold Gumby statue for ourselves....we are not to sure about it.
Hope you enjoyed the photos!

Guest Book

My friend Jen is getting married this week and I made her a guest book!
I loved how this turned out, it fits the theme of the wedding so well and it is what she wanted.
I can't wait to see it filled up!
I used book cloth to cover the front and back book board pieces and it was fun to work with and it looks great in person. So I think I will have to get more book cloth in other colors to make some more mini books!

A Few Pages to Share

A few weeks ago I started to scrapbook a few of the pictures from when we went to Disneyland for my Birthday in April. I am almost finished with all of the pictures from the trip so I thought I would share a few of those now.
I love how all of these pages came out it was a lot of fun to sit and scrapbook these.
I will share a few more pages in the next few days. I am off to Los Angeles in a few days for Jen's wedding so I am busy getting things ready to go. Have a great day!

Finally Finished a Knitting Project!

So I actually have some knitting to share! It seems like months have gone by and I haven't finished a knitting project at all. Meet Ishbel, a beautiful shawl pattern that I found via my friend Jen. She mentioned the pattern and I went and looked at it and had to have one!
It is currently sitting on our living room floor being blocked but should be dry soon, and now that it is starting to feel like fall here I am sure I will get to wear it very soon.
It was actually a really quick knit, I finished it in about a week which was nice since I haven't been doing a lot of knitting in the past month. More projects to share soon!

*Going to Stitches MidWest and getting some fun new yarn to play with
*Working on some fun scrapbooking projects
*Going to Los Angeles for a week and spending time with great friends

September is going to be great, I can tell already!
