Alright, I'm not sure how I've contained my elation about this as long as I have. A while back, my heart-hurtingly beautiful, soon to be married friend Christine approached me with a mission: to create for her a couple kitschy, vintagey images she could use for her upcoming wedding invitation!

* * * * * * Holycrapwhatanhonor!!! * * * * * *

I got straight to work on this project with great gusto, determined to give her what she needed if was the last thing on Earth I ever did. I dug out a wide array of pretty, pointless crap I keep around for God only knows what (old wedding toppers, pearls, 50's toys & figures, etc.) clicked away on the endless ideas kickin' around in my head, sent them off for her perusal & much to my delighted surprise, they did the trick!

My giddy heart EXPLODED, but not as much as when the actual hard copy arrived in my mailbox not long after!!! Total trip to see a couple of images I captured incorporated into such a precious keepsake. :) I hope Christine doesn't mind me sharing the pdf version of her rough draft. I just want to thank Christine again for this experience. She came to me fully confidant in my capabilities and I know it was that faith she had in me that made this work. May all your wedding dreams come true, Christine. I love you BIG!

Oh my god there are like 4 weddings happening this summer in my tiny town. All of the invitations for those weddings are white and super boring. I have had SOOO many compliments on my invitations and people cannot believe they are homemade.

Missy, I think as far as DIY collaberations go, we kicked some gnarly ass!!
