Spinning.......My head is spinning.......

Okay, now that I have that song in your head too I will explain. My mom's wedding is in 20 days and she put ME in charge. So on top of working full time, opening the store, teaching classes, getting everything ready for taxes, I am now IN CHARGE of my mom's wedding. Here are her invites......



Very simple I know, but this is what she wanted. Thank you LISA for allowing me to borrow your embossing folder for the wedding bells (it is on its way back to you).

I ordered her flowers today (once again when I asked her what she wanted her reply was, "I don't care, whatever you think"). I order a bouquet of 7 Calla Lilly's for her (one for each of her 5 children and one for each of Ron's) and ordered my sister, the Matron of Honor, a single stem. I have all of the boutonnieres and corsages taken care of and the ferns ordered to put at the front of the church. I have been working on the center pieces for the tables at the reception, again, simple but elegant. I found a beautiful wedding cake and ordered it, (insert picture of my head spinning and spinning) and have the pianist and vocalist taken care of. Breathe Beverly, breathe!.

On the store front, I hope you have been checking out the designers blogs awaiting their post with the Bloom and Grow line from My Mind's Eye. The colors in this paper is so vibrant, just in time for Spring. Speaking of Spring colors check out this photo of all the Page Pebbles I just received.





The clear colored pebbles are $4.49/btl and the colored pearls are $4.99. Send me an email or leave a comment if you are interested in ordering these or anything that you see on the blog...(until the online store is done).

On to the next subject, I have had a couple of request for a pic of my hair cut that I mentioned in the previous post, so here goes.........



and last but not least.... Kelsey Forrester was at the store yesterday for a Basic Grey Page of the Month class and was early. She made the mistake of asking me is there was anything she could do....that's all it took ! My mom and future step-day called earlier that morning and ask me to make a Anniversary card in green for Ron's son and his wife. Their anniversary is on St. Patrick's Day. I immediately gave this assignment to Kelsey knowing how talented she is making cards. I happened to have my recently received shipment from PTI that contained last months release that I had yet to take home and unpack.....yes that is how busy I have been....we had another release before I ever unpacked the previous one. Needless to say Kelsey was excited to see the Damask Designs Stamp set and all the wonderful accessories in the box. Here is the beautiful card she made...



Thanks Kelsey - Mom and Ron loved the card !

I will be back tomorrow with some more photos including an Easter layout that Niki sent to me using some of the Cosmo Cricket as well as a few cards from the same line and some from My Mind's Eye.

Thanks for stopping by Precious Scraps, Bev

I love the invitations. Sometimes simple makes the biggest impact. I have to tell you what a good time I had at the class. I've got to look and see what other classes you've got. See ya soon!

Bev - LOVE the haircut! It's stylin' and helps show off how pretty you are (bet you're like most women and don't think of yourself as pretty?!) I think you should put your new haircut picture in the "About Me" section of your blog. When you get a chance, please post some more pictures of the store. After watching you grow it from scratch I'd like to see every nook and cranny!
