More June LO's!!

I'm sorry it took so long to get these posted. I was having issues with flickr liking the work server and I kept forgetting to post them once I got home. Worst blogger ever, I realize that.

June C2P: The bass player

The bass player! Why is the bass player always the hot one? My friends in high school were in a band "Perfect Confusion" and I used to go watch them play, just for this guy Matt. Now they've moved on to a new band (three of the PC guys at least) and they are quickly becoming famous, which is just weird. But I still miss Matt and wish he ws in the new band!

June C2P: Live, Laugh, Love
I have something similar to this on my wall and I made this one for a friend for her birthday. Hopefully she likes it.

June C2P: B-Maid Minibook: Cressie
Posting this hoping my b-maids aren't too nosy. I'm making each of them a minibook and this is the first one I've done. I'm about half way done with it at this point (I ran out of C-adjectives. Suggestions would be appreciated! G, A, J, and L as well)

Father's Day

I feel like the whole world needs to be wished one giant "Happy Father's Day!" today.

So we'll do a tribute to my dad today, because I love him and he's the best dad out there.

Katy and Dad
(ooh I'm terribly sunburned here!) So that's my dad. He's my hero, my defender and probably the source of most of my better personality traits.

Being silly
He's got a great sense of humor, probably the funniest in the family as Josh and I are just sarcastic and mom is usually just accidentally funny.

Dinner with Dad
He's been my inspiration for a lot of things, including where I went to college. He's the best sort of resource for most stuff, and he's always rasied us to make our own decisions and stand behind them. Sure we don't agree on everything, but he respects that we've taken the stance we've taken (by we I mean lil brother and I) and he's been supportive through it all.

Lunch on the deck
I really am very lucky and love him so very much.

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY DADDY!! (and to all the other fathers out there as well!)

Wedding: Showers galore!

Two showers down, four more to go. (whew!)

I don't have pictures up yet from either, as I'm still waiting to get one set from friends and the others I haven't uploaded my photos yet. (I just got home late last night).

But thank you notes for the first shower have been written and just need to be addressed / mailed and the second set are in the works. (two down, about 15 to go!)

I've had such fun though, putting on something pretty, spending time with old friends and getting some things I've never expected to get. We've already been blessed enough to get three place settings of our nice china, a new blender, tons of cooking items and I got some very nice things at the "Naughty or Nice" themed shower (mostly naughty...and lacy). My friends/family/mom's friends have excellent taste.

We have another gathering this weekend, which is more of a party and less of a shower, and then a "giftcard" themed shower early next month. The last two showers will be one with my family and then another with the church ladies that Chris' parents know. A grand total of SIX. It's exhausting and I'm worried I'm going to run out of cute outfits to wear to everything!! (I've never been so relieved that I've picked up four or so new dresses to wear to these events).

LO: June C2p

My first LO with the June C2P kit:

June C2P: Build Me Up Buttercup

The picture is of a hall of boys from GSP (which was a five week college like program I went to summer before senior of high school) who decided to serenade the girls' dorm. It was honestly really really cute.

Some detail shots:

Wedding: Invites...again

Ok! The decision about the wedding invites has been made, no one can change their mind, I've ordered them and it's done.

Mom and I talked and we decided I'm getting my wording on the invite because it looks better. So here's what they are going to look like (kinda)

Wedding invites

So it will have our names (which are much longer and will look different) and they won't be in all lowercase (Champ didn't like that). We've got reply cards to match. I've now got to make up my directions card so that I can get those printed and such so they'll be ready to go once they invites are in. Whew.

LOs: Little Red Scrapbook

Some new LO's i just finished up a few weeks ago but didn't post until now.

Again my style is still really sparse at the moment.

Thomas panels
Ahh Thomas. I was playing around with a challenge/scraplift out of my Ali Edwards book and this is what came out. I kind of like it.

ap calc
My AP Calc class. I was one of three juniors.
Again things are really sparse. I mean look at this with just the strips?

Change your Mind
So this is from when I walked in a pro-life parade. I know, seriously me. But it was high school and I didn't know any better. The LO is actually about changing your mind, changing your world, and really make a decision about how you feel about something.

Wild Goose Chase
Seve chasing the geese outside of Kevin and Angela's wedding.

Some shots from my first IRD in AGD (International Reunion Day--like a Founder's Day, and Alpha Gamma Delta--my sorority).

The Crane Chandelier

I really want to do this!! The Wedding Co. sponsoring a project called The Crane Chandelier and for it are collecting cranes from hopefully 10,000 engaged couples by January 2011 (their 10th Anniversary). I'm just blown away by this. Plus for each crane they are going to donate 50 cents to cancer research (that means if they make their goal, they'll donate $5,000!) So of course I'm in.

More than anything it reminds me of a story (novel?) I read when I was a kid about a little girl, Sadako, who was very sick. There's a local legend in Japan that if you fold 1,000 paper cranes and make the same wish on each one, your wish will come true. I read the book, devoured it actually. It was a great story and one that's always been with me, and has probably continued to support my love for the cranes.

My crane is requested!! I could actually make my own, but I feel like whatever paper I'd pick might look weird. (silly I know, don't remind me.)
