Up Close and Personal!

Hello, and welcome!

This is our Engagement Photograph.....haaaaa!

I had the most amazing night.....certainly will always remember it........the Osmonds are the business....wooohoooo!
Shame about the fuzzy hair (me, not Jimmy O!), but got caught in a down-pour when shuffling running to the entrance, but it didn't faze my soon-to-be-betrothed.......he still was gallant enough to hug me, and insisted we had our "official" piccie taken together......yaaaaaayyyyyy!!!!
I am not goin' to bore the pants off you/rub your nose in it.........the special details are mine, all mine......but suffice it to say that I had an absolutely amazing time, and am an even bigger fan of the wonderful Osmonds than I was already!

Last Thursday was Yvie-Grace's 2nd birthday, and she had a Mickey Mouse-themed party....she just adores the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.......but I didn't go with the theme for her birthday card.
I just love Wee Stamps and fell in love with this little cutie, because she reminded me of Yvie..........

 A few layers on this one, lol..........white card base with layers of red card stock and blue and mustard papers....... a white paper doily arranged behind the images.......
Isn't she sweet?  Coloured her up with the usual Promarkers, then cut around, leaving a tiny white border......

The pretty postcard was a freebie from Pink Gem, and I added a metal star that I glittered up with fine blue glittery shtuff, and fixed with a mustard brad.........

The journalling tag was another freebie....just added sentiment stickers, punched a hole with my Cropadile thingy, and added the big mustard eyelet, and a pretty ribbon.......

Die cut the butterfly from red and white paper, then coloured up the white spots in mustard to match.......

I dotted some dot-matrix sticky dots in the corners, and sprinkled some of this pretty bling over......I love the result!

Okie-dokie......that's me for to go call  Jimmy and chase him up about the weddin' arrangements......haaaaa!
