I was so excited when the bride contacted me about purchasing an Adventure Book to use in their engagement shoot. I went out on a limb and asked her if they would be willing to share teh photos with. This lovely couple was kind enough to oblige. 

I think the happy couple looks amazing. I just love these photos!! It’s so cute how they even found a yellow house to take the pictures in front of.


Photos were taken by Betwixt in San Diego (http://www.betwixtstudio.com/#/special/splash/)

A and Z, how fun is that?

Playing around with their initials is something Ive been dying to do, so when a friend of mine asked me to put together a scrapbook for her and her boyfriend, I was so excited. This year, the couple decided that they would only do “meaningful” gifts so this was her gift to him. Most of the pictures are are from his favorite US city (San Fransisco), making it a great gift for him since he was headed back to Serbia.

The papers are mostly “Max and Whispers” by Basic Grey.

The book is filled with hidden journaling, fold-outs, flip up and  envelope pages. It makes for a very interactive scrapbook. I thought it was nice that they could share the photos and albums with others but her notes to him would remain personal.

Here are some of the pages…






I’m a sucker for both fonts and puns so these cards were so much fun to work on. While the current cards features red hearts (just in time for Valentine’s day) this cards can really be given any time. Since these notecards are blank inside. they can serve as “thinking of you”, “just because”, “hello”, “friendship” and so much more

My nephew happens to be a tad obsessed with dinosaurs. It’s like he can point one out from a mile away. So I decided to pick him up from pre-school early and take him to the Natural History Museum.  Granted my camera was on the wrong setting, but I still love this picture of him. To me, it captures the awe and amazement of when he walked in and yelled “IT’S DINO DAN. THIS IS SO COOL!!”.

I can’t wait to scrapbook these 🙂

First visit to the Natural History Museum (Cleveland)
