Weddings are expensive, at least that’s what I’ve heard as we opted for flying to Vegas for the weekend almost 15 years ago to get married. No we didn’t get married by Elvis but I can always say I got married in Paris as we got married at the Paris Hotel & Casino! No matter how simple or how elaborate your wedding day is, you can save a little money and add a personal touch to your special day by creating some (or all!) of your wedding décor.

I started scrapping in 2006 and was quickly addicted!I was an avid scrapper until late summer of 2010 when we started our adoption journey, at that point I was overwhelmed with paperwork (and emotions!) and I had to put something on the back burner in my life but I knew I would eventually come back to it.
We welcomed our daughter home from China in December of 2011 and a few months later I found my groove again and pulled out all of those supplies that had been tucked away.
I started out scrapping again doing traditional layouts, but at the beginning of this year I jumped into Project Life and I love it!
When I’m not scrapping I am usually spending time with our daughters which means library time, going on walks, thrifting (they love it as much as I do!) or watching Kung Fu Panda for the millionth time.I also have an Etsy shop Panda Eight Designs where I sell scrapbooking flair that I design.
