After yesterday’s post on Sunday Suppers’ trip to Paris and today’s French Inspired Menus & Invitations by Cynthia Warren, I’m really in the mood to pack my bags and get on a plane to a far away place.

Is anyone planning a wedding inspired by a beautiful place?

Desiging Your Own Paper

Most all of us have lots of experience in doodling. It probably started back in 2nd grade and progressed to more elaborate pieces in 10th grade.  Now you can put your experience to work in creating your own paper!

iDiY featured Artysville’s tutorial for these fun doodle cards.

Items needed: a scanner, a color printer, Photoshop and your awesome artwork

Colored Cardstock

Steps:

“(1) scan your black and white doodle at hi-res; (2) open the image in Photoshop; (3) pick  a color that’s closest to the color of your paper; (4) colorize with the Magic Wand and Fill tool; (5) print…”

For someone who has no interest in mastering gocco, this is definitely more my speed and allows me to keep being creative.

Wedding Inspirations ’09- Big Hit!

I had the most delightful time at the Wedding Inspirations Event at the Commandant’s House this past Sunday.  The sun was shining, brides were out and the champagne was flowing. You may want to grab a cup of coffee because this is going to be a long one.

The Commandant’s House is such a beautiful venue for a wedding reception, rehearsal dinner or bridal shower.  It is located in Charlestown by the Navy Ship Yard. Take a look at these beautiful photos of the Commandant’s House!

There were so many great individuals from the Wedding Industry in attendance, let’s start with Abby Larson from Style Me Pretty!

As many of may know, I am a complete fan of Style Me Pretty.  It was my very first blog that I became addicted to and one of the first blogs I suggest that my brides follow for cutting edge wedding inspiration. Abby was such a sweet heart!  {Thank you for putting up with all of my photos!}

I recently posted the Wedding Inspirations ’09 Invitation.  It was so decadent and feminine.  Karen Bartolomei, owner of Grapevine, was responsible for creating this piece of art.  I spent so much time going through her work.  Take a look for yourself.
