My weekend...April's TEAL CJ...Page Swap with Alex...

I am so glad that we are back at daylight savings time..it means that summer will be here soon, which I cannot wait for...

My weekend and past week has been good. Busy with wedding stuff, especially that the time is getting closer now. Meeting with the caterer and the decorator, went really well. They were both going to go and take a look at the Scottish Cultural Centre to check it out and also to let us know about the decorating. We're busy looking for a DJ, which is a little bit difficult, all the ones we've looked up have been booked already which kind of sucks, but I'm not worried we'll find somebody!!

Yesterday I went to a travel agent to get some prices for hotels in Hawaii..YAY!! So excited!! Got some, they all range from not too bad price to super expensive. I showed Jared and we picked one, right on the beach which is affordable..so, now all we have to do is book it, will do that this week!!

Last night I did some more work on the invitations, did it in front of the t.v., watching Michael Buble..love him...Jared and I saw him in concert last summer, it was an outdoor concert and it was so awesome, we went with Mike and Jen and had so much fun!! The invitations are going, finished scoring and folding them, now working on stamping the front with a Celtic Writing background stamp. I'm stamping it with a Versamark pad...so it's very subtle. Love how it looks!! But my hand got tired after a while, the stamp is huge and I have to use both hands to stamp it!! Only got almost half done but, I will finish up probably over the week in front of the t.v.

Did a bit of scrappin...Alex's page for our swap and April's CJ!! Had tons of fun!!

Here's my entry in April's TEAL CJ...had tons of fun doing it...here I am with my thinking bubble...love how it turned out!!


Went looking around in my room to find things that are teal...here's what I came up with...


Here is my page for the swap that I did with Alex...sorry it took me so long, I hope you like it!! :)


Hopefully I'll get more scrapping done over the week in between making invitations...I'm already excited when they'll be done!! I hope everyone has an awesome week and that you all had a good weekend as well!! Later...
