I began crafting as a hobby when I was about 15 years old and I never new that it would become a lifelong passion! In the past year, I feel like my "craftiness" has blossomed and come to a new level...now this may sound like I am boasting a little bit...but I have been getting new tools and learning a lot of new techniques which have caused this jump in creativity. When I began selling Stampin' Up just one year ago, I was nervous and didn't really know what I had gotten myself into! I can tell you now, that I absolutely love Stampin' Up and I will probably be a demonstrator for the rest of my life.
This leads me to my most recent project ... a couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to prepare the decorations for a friend's bridal shower. With the help of her sister and two other friends it came together very nicely! She sent me some ideas of what she wanted and we ran with it. Luckily the colors she picked are some of my very favorite colors, bright orange and pink! It was so much fun to do this for her.
This is the dessert table. After some searching we were able to find enough matching orange and pink paper to do all of the details. She is a beautiful bride to be!
Her sister did a great job finding the candy in the colors, and another wonderful family friend made the cupcakes!
I used my "Big Shot" (#113439) and some other tools to do the poms and the hearts for the tables.
These are the fabulous tissue paper poms that Tyra made and hung up on the ceiling!
Can't forget the food! Abby did a great job preparing the food for the guests. Everyone enjoyed it!
This is Tyra and I after finishing the set up. We were able to get all the decorations put up just in time for the shower to start! Thanks to everyone that helped and best of luck to the bride and groom!
