Update on creative projects, a new one, plus a CT layout

Remember the photo book I was asked to make for my sister's ILs? I finally finished it this past weekend and sent it off for approval. I got word the other day that they absolutely loved it and the book is ordered and eagerly awaited. Since the photos in the book aren't mine I can't share with you the results. You will just have to trust me that it turned out great. I used the Create a book posted collection by Katie Pertiet and the A beautiful day kit by Mindy Terasawa, all from Designer Digitals.

I am in the midst of completing the designs for the wedding stationary I have been working on for quite a while. The invitations went out in Aoril. What I'm doing now is the ceremony programme and also a booklet for the reception that will double as a place card, a menu, and that gives fun little facts about each guest. We also included some beautiful love quotes. They were both sent for approval tonight. I am hoping to start production this weekend. If the couple agree, I will be sharing them here shortly.

My new project, which isn't really all that big, is a birthday celebration. Someone is turning 35 in two weeks. That someone has decided to host a dessert buffé party for the closest family. And that someone wants a really cheery and bright theme that is still chic and sassy. The invites, that were hand deliviered (because of laziness mostly, lol) were created with this in mind.

The next step to tackle is to find some fun decorations for the table. I have a few ideas that might work out really well.

I created another digital scrapbooking layout for Jessica Sprague. Orchard & Broome has a new kit out called Bleecker St that I loved right from the minute I saw it.
