Dave and I both had crazy days of work and school on Valentines Day but it was still an awesome day.
We both came home and open presents and Dave totally out shined me by buying my Taylor Swift concert tickets!!! I AM SO EXCITED! June 1 in Salt Lake City - cant wait. Best Husband Ever. He is so sweet!!
Ella had her 4th birthday on Saturday! So Friday we had a day full of adventures! First, we had to curl her hair and get her awesome outfit ready.
I took her to Micheal's and said she could pick out one craft to do and she picked a Strawberry Short Cake coloring book... So we colored :)
Then we took her to Cabella's to look at all the animals! She was scared a little at first but then we couldn't pull her away from them when it was time to go.
Dave and Ella together, she is such a silly girl I couldn't her just to smile.
And then she saw the bears and got excited and said "HEY, Brave Bears!" And of course had to take a picture!
The Polar bear and the Zebra were her favorite!
SUCH A SILLY CUTE GIRL! She thought it was SO funny that you could ride a bear. And she sat down in that chair and was just making us all laugh <3
And of course we had to play a shooting game we were at Cabella's.
We then took her to a black light mini golf!! Were she glowed SO MUCH with her shirt and pants but in the pictures you cant really tell. Ella was AMAZING she could hit the ball in the hole with two hits!
She loved the castle and the surf theme :)
Happy 4th Birthday Ella! You are such a blast! It was one of the best Fridays ever! I wish I lived closer to all of my nieces and nephews so I could play a fun day with them on their birthdays! Hopefully one day! :)
With Valentines Day being less then a week away I started on making cards, of course with yellow. ;)
This Card is my favorite! Being an Interior Design major I have tons of paint samples so I decide to make a card with them! Here is the beginning:
and the middle of the card:
And the final Paint Card!!
I have a few pages in the middle to add quotes and pictures :)
Cherish Love Card:
The flowers are from ribbon, you can't really see them all the way with the picture sorry.
I wanted to do something a little different and more modern so I have had this nylon material from a design project I did last summer. The word love on the card looks like lover, my sketch of a key didn't really turn out, so I am going to have to change it.
And finally I started this card awhile ago and I posted about it last week and here is the finish:
Well that is all :) if you have any suggestions on what to do better or what you don't like feel free to comment.
I have started on doing some crafts for Valentines Day. I have never really been a huge fan of the holiday probably because I have only had one Valentine, which I enjoyed and liked, which was last year when Dave and I were dating. The other memories I have are awkward dates with guys and random flowers in homeroom class from people I had no idea who where. Then every year I am the mean heart breaker with the barrier of bad news that no just because you took me out or sent me a flower doesn't mean I like you, and I don't know you so no I am not going to date you. I know harsh. But in all honesty I was doing them a favor because if one of my older brothers were to found them it would have been A LOT worse then a broken heart.
Any ways, Valentines Day is full of colors red and pink. Which are great don't get my wrong. I like the colors they go together . . . etc. But with a "happy" holiday like everyone says it is, shouldn't their be some sunshine? In my life if you brought me a rose it would be nice and they are very beautiful but bring me a Sunflower (or a Daisy) I am happiest girl in the world! Big Bright Beautiful Fun and Playful! That is what yellow does for me. So I have been getting ready my card and gift for Dave I am trying some new things out. Let me know if you like my idea with Valentine's Day needs some Yellow in it!
Here is the start of the card I am making for Dave, I will post more picture and more crafts I am doing latter but here is my start. :)
I made the flowers with felt and sewed them together with black thread. Then I attached them to the paper with the black thread and strung the bead on.
For one my gifts (not really in the yellow theme, sorry) I am trying to scrapbook our honeymoon which was in Mexico! I have been trying to think of a way to scrapbook the money we got their in a unique way. So I decided to use them as a page number. So every page has a coin and then I am still working on what to do with the bills. Check it out let me know what you think.
And also Dave has been "banned" from the blog until Valentines Days. ; )
