All Because Two People Fell in Love...

WHEW!!  It's been a busy, yet SUPER FAST weekend.  WHERE did it go???  We've been busy here with some house projects, hoping to get them wrapped up in our "spare" time, lol.  Making progress, but still a ways to go.

Anyway -- onto my post.  A few months ago, my in-laws celebrated their 45th Wedding Anniversary.  A pretty big deal, especially now a days.  I decided to make a card that would emphasize the importance of that 45.

I pulled out the Papertrey Ink By the Numbers dies, and cut a 4 and a 5, ran them through my xyron and then poured glitter all over them...I mean really, aside from blinking lights (which could come in the future, I'll have to top this in 5 years, HA!) what better than glitter to catch your eye??

Layered the 45 onto some die cuts (1.75" limitless layers, and Mat Stack 4) - and accented with the largest flourish from Fancy Flourishes that was embossed with clear ep.  Finished it off with the sentiment 'amazing years'. From Big Birthday Wishes.

I say amazing, because we ALL got together that day, and took a photo of the whole family...take a look at what has been accomplished in 45 years...and smile.
Have a great day!!

June PTI Blog Hop!!

When I saw the inspiration photo for today's blog hop...I was...well, inspired ;).  What a FUN picture, full of color and life.  Of course, my daughters want their room painted like this now...

I decided to play with my copics and my airbrush, and made my take on the "wall".  I added a piece of white, cut with Mat Stack #4, with my sentiment from Think Big Favorites #1 stamped in Basic Gray ink.  Then gave it a splash of interest with some felt flowers cut with my Beautiful Blooms II #3 dies and a little bling.

Thanks for dropping by, have a GREAT weekend!!
