Wedding Week!

Bella Blvd's Stephanie Hunt is getting married this Saturday...
A huge congratulations and best wishes to Stephanie and Steven!
We thought it would be fun to share some of our own wedding photos,
as well as some good old-fashioned advice :)
Stop by and have a look...all Bella Blvd Designers will be participating in this one!

Here is my contribution...from a beautiful day in 1991
 My note of 'wisdom'
After being married for 22 years the one thing that stands out to me is how much my husband
 and I have evolved over the years. Things that we had in common when we first met
 aren't the same today. Over the years you will develop new hobbies and interests. 
My advice is to be open to the changes that you will find in your spouse; learn to adapt
 to them as much as you can. It may not be ideal for you to ride around in a pasture
 to check on the livestock, but when it's important to your spouse you learn to share your time. 
For those things that you do have in common, expound on those and make time to enjoy them often.
 And even after the kiddies come along, keep a date night on the calendar...
it's amazing how refreshing a night out can be!

So glad you've dropped by sure to say "hi"...I'm having a give-a-way soon
and may change things up a bit just for fun :)

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
