And So It Begins

And So It Begins

I finally begin the first 3 of 5 Wedding Albums for my family. After purchasing the Chipboard Albums from Micheals and digging through my paper packs. A few hours and a ton of Mod Podge later I managed to cover the all the albums with Paper.

Then yestarday I finally found the time to get the photos printed for the albums. They came out perfect, sizes from 5x5, 4x6, and 5x7. I also went all out and got myself a new self healing mat, 4 new pairs of scissors in various sizes, double sided tape, foam matting tape, and clear sleeves.  Now I believe I am ready to start filling the albums with amazing pictures and embellishments

Today marked another milestone for myself. I began Apartment Hunting today. And I have an appointment next week to view at least 2 but possibly 4. I will soon have a 2 bedroom apartment, 1 room will be an art studio. I am so excited for this!

But the bad news is, my Husband is set to deploy soon. Time is ticking faster then it ever has before. But I have told myself that I will get through this.

New Name, New Life!

New Name, New Life

On January 25, 2014 I married the man of my dreams, and my best friend, Russell James Mannex Jr. 

This, by far, was the best day of my life. Not only did I get to have an amazing time with my new husband, but I was able to spend time with my amazing family. I got to see so many side of people I didnt know where there, including myself. It was so beautiful.

My dearest and closest friend Lori made everything come together on such short notice. the fallowing beautiful pictures wouldnt have been possible without her! Not only did she take such amazing pictures, but she decorated and coordinated my entire wedding, and was my florist! I owe her so much for doing all these amazing things for me!

She did such an amazing job, and these are only a fraction of the pictures she mananged to take. She made me feel so amazing in these pictures, she made me feel like a princess!

So now all I have to do is take all 320 photos from the wedding and make 4 scrap-chipboard albums for family members. That isnt to much at all right? I already have some of the supplies. Blank Chipboard Albums and Scrapbook Paper from Michaels. Lots of stickers, laces, pearls, beads, yadda-yadda-yadda! I am so excited to get started.... but I have to have the photos printed and I havent found a place I like yet!
