For my card idea, I chose to go with a light colored splatter. For vintage styles, I tend to use dark colors but I loved how this lightly splattered Lemon Lime Twist lent itself perfectly on my card.

 I am happy to report that the 11-year laundry room project is complete!  Yay!  You’re probably looking at it and thinking, “THAT took 11 years?”  It was supposed to be a surprise while I was away at a Stampin’ Up conference but an ice storm cut my trip short so all that was done were cabinets installed.  Over time, the sink made it in, and of course, the new washer and dryer last month.  We really have no idea why it took so long to work on it. <cough, cough, we’re lazy, cough>

A couple weeks ago, the cabinets were painted with a really cool special cabinet paint.  It look a little longer than just regular paint but cabinets get a workout and I wanted something that would last.  They look amazing and match my other furniture throughout the house.  We’re now thinking about painting the kitchen cabinets this same color.  Hmm, maybe in another 11 years we can tackle that one.  lol  For now, I am going to enjoy my pretty laundry room.

So, remember I told you I was working on wedding invitations for a friend?  I just realized I never shared them with you. Her wedding is in October and she chose fall colors – Elegant Eggplant, Very Vanilla, and Gold.  Christina is a bridesmaid and found a dress that matched this color perfectly (and she looks stunning).

This Big Shot die is retired now (insert sad face).  I love how the invitation slips out of the sleeve but is a nice piece by itself too.

Christina and I created 125 of these beauties while we were in Tulsa over the summer.  What a mess we had in the camper but hey, that’s what vacuums are for.  The bride was thrilled with how they turned out.  It was such an honor to create them for her special day to a very special guy.

 Haircut day was a success!!!  YAY!  I am so happy!  I even got bold and went when a new look.  You’ll see it on tomorrow’s video.  It is SO nice to get that mop on my head trimmed up.  I don’t think I will ever want to go that long between haircuts again.

Thanks for joining me today for another 2-Minute Tip!  I hope that you enjoyed it!  Remember tomorrow I will have a video on how to create this card.  :)
