Here comes the Bride!

HELLO!!!!! welcome to the hop! 
If you've arrived here from Alice's blog then your on the right track if not, you might want to go and start the hop from the beginning on the PWCO blog.  I've given you the order of the hop below to help you out.   

PaperWorks Co. Blog (kickoff) –

New to this release is a color challenge- Each DT member will have a color challenge on their blog – the way we picked our colors, well that's simple they're our wedding colors! Now for me this little bit was a bit harder since i did not have a traditional wedding like most of the other girls.  My hubby and I got married, bare foot in the sand in Negril, Jamaica.  I guess you could say we eloped but it wasn't a secret from our families, we did however throw a really great Jamaican themed BBQ 1.5 months later.  I had invites and a wedding cake, i even put my dress back on to show those who hadn't seen it.   So here is my color challenge, sand and sea colors!  Aquamarine and Ivory (the color of my dress and the sand in Negril)

You will have 48 hours to enter as many of the colour challenges from the DT blogs as you'd like (one entry per colour challenge), So that means you can get up to 9 entries to win a prize package that will consist of the entire release AND a July PaperCard Kit.  You need to enter by linking up your post(s) through the InLinkz provided on the PWCO Blog - you'll need to create a new post to link up for each entry.

ok enough waiting.... here are my two cards for the release.  We are so lucky to have these great designs by Rachelle Anne Miller, if you like what you see here, don't forget to check out the other RAM stamps in the PWCO store

it's been a while...

somehow it seems that most of my posts lately start with this line....but it's true everytime; it's been a while.

Our house is finally finished, all the little things that were left to do by the contractor are done.  Of course that doesn't mean we're completely settled in.  We moved back first week of June and on june 29th i left for San Francisco with hubby for some work meetings, but i got to tag along which is always nice.  My mom came down to babysit the kids while we were away.  2 days after coming back we drove up to Amos, in the north of Quebec, to bury my dad.  He's finally in his resting place.  My sister cam down from Sk for the burial too, it was nice to see her.  She also had some awesome news to share with us.... she just got engaged!!!!! Congrats sis! Now can i call Brock my brother-in-law???
So with everything that was going on i still have some boxes to unpack, but i must say that it's coming along very well.  I'm really hoping to have everything done by the end of the month, then again we're already the 18th YIKES!!!

Scrappy news!  PWCO is having the next release on July 23rd and i'll be taking part in it.  yes, i still work with PWCO but i'm behind the scenes since i create the sketches and Steph takes care of all the postings.  It's better for me this way right now anyways.  i can't wait to get crafty again! 

Come back and visit on July 23rd for the Blog Hop release.  We have a special challenge to go with this release, wait till you see!
