Today I thought I’d share a few snapshots from a brag book that I put together over the holidays for my sweet friend Christina. This was a gift for her mom “Hooey” of her adorable son, Auggie. She had the most fun photos of her little family to play around with! Enjoy!

More Eye Candy for YOU! This is part 2 of Kim’s Family Brag Book. Again, it was absolutely a pleasure designing this beautiful album! Kim, I hope you and your family cherish the brag book for years to come!
Also, I had to include a few detailed shots of how awesome the texture is of these fabulous Basically Bare album. With the kraft envelopes, I was able to add in the extra photos that were not on a page. I simply hole-punched the photo and tied a ribbon on it. This made it look like a little tag that you could pull out of each envelope. Most pages I covered with patterned paper, but I occassionally let the fun brown, kraft paper shine through.

I absolutely love this!!! So many of the albums and photo-related gifts I create are gifts, I usually get to see the excitement from the gift-giver, but not always reactions from the person receiving the gift! Michelle was so sweet to capture an adorable photo of Sydney after she opened her shadowbox and share it with us! Thanks, Michelle! Sydney, I am so glad you love the shadowbox. It was SO fun to put together!!

I had a TON of fun with this project! Not only do I love photos, but I love baseball… it was a blast to put together two of my favorite things in an adorable shadowbox for Sydney to cherish for years to come!
These photos are from a Padres game this Spring. Sydney was able to go on the field and annouce a player on the San Diego Padres at the beginning of third inning — how cool!! She even was given the game ball!
Check back tomorrow for a super cute photo of Sydney opening her surprise shadowbox gift!

I’ve been so busy with mini albums, shadowboxes and other papercrafting projects, it feels like it has been FOREVER since I’ve put together a traditional 12×12 scrapbook page! My sweet coworker Ellen asked for a little help from Embellish to put together a page for her sister, Jeanne’s, 60th birthday! Ellen provided this adorable picture of her and her sister dancing the night away. Too cute!

Hope you had a great 4th of July! I had such a fun, carefree, relaxing weekend with friends and family – it was fantastic! We had a very successful bachelorette party for my little sister on Saturday. Between pool time, DIY facials and masks, fruity blended drinks, LOTS of food, a limo ride, goody bags, a lingerie cake (pics coming soon!), a fancy dinner, champagne, lots of free drinks, a sleepover and brunch… we had a total blast! We definitely made Lauren’s “last fling before the ring” a very fun, glamorous evening. Now, the countdown is on — Just 3 weeks until the big day.
July is always such a hectic month for me, plus the festivities of my sister’s wedding. I’m going to be SUPER busy, but it’s all very exciting! Next weekend: A friend from college’s wedding up in LA area, then the big OTL tourney on Sunday with my girls. The following weekend: a bridal shower for another friend, then packing up for CHA in Chicago with Charity Wings. The weekend after: Lauren & Matt’s Wedding! Woo hoo.
Hope you had a wonderful 4th of July weekend! Here’s a detail shot of a page in the summer mini album!

Super excited! My sister’s bachelorette party is tomorrow!! It is going to be a day of fun, girl stuff! Spa treatments, loungin’ by the pool, getting dressed up, dinner downtown, sleepover fun and brunch. I can’t believe my little sis is getting married in less than a month!! I am so excited for this next chapter in her life. I’ve watched her grow up so much just in the last few years and I know she is going to be the best wifey in the whole wide world. Love ya, sis!
The bridesmaids and I have all kinds of fun in store for the weekend. These are the custom invitations that I created for each gal invited to the festivities…
