Bachelorette Andi

I’m warning you.

If you recorded the Bachelorette two nights ago and still have not watched it…

…go watch it and…DO….NOT…READ…ANY…FURTHER!

But chances are you already know the results…

…or you live in a different solar system!

This is my first season ever watching the Bachelor franchise.  I know.  Hard to believe.  And I’m sorry if you are a big Bachelor fan, but it is likely to be the last season I watch it too.  My sister was visiting when the season started and wanted me to watch the first episode with her or the second, or both.   I can’t remember.

That’s the problem with reality shows – or the good thing, if you are the producer – they suck you in.  Because they are REAL people, hence the ‘reality’ in reality show, it doesn’t take long to care about the people and want to know what happens to them.  So I watched the end of the season and …

…I loved the outcome!

Therefore, this..

…For Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray

(To see how I made this in MDS click here and if you know how I can send this engagement gift to them send me a message.  haha)

I think they are adorable and I love their positive energy.  Best of all, it reminded me of my engagement to my husband – minus the beautiful setting, beautiful clothes and beautiful people – which is a super sweet memory.

And the way Josh ended up in a puddle of sweat when he proposed…oh my…that was just like my Ron.  You should have seen him the day we got married.  Ron said he wasn’t nervous but the puddle he was standing in when the ceremony was over said otherwise.

It’s been 20 years for us, and I hope that Andi and Josh enjoy their next 20 years as much as we have.  I would show you a picture from our wedding but I haven’t found them since the move.  oops.

What did you think of the finale?  Are you happy with her choice?

MDS Comfort Cafe Birthday Card

Digital Tuesday – A MDS Happy Birthday

MDS Comfort Cafe Birthday Card

This is the fabulous card my sister gave to me for my birthday.  She designed these 5″ x 7″ birthday cards in MDS and then sent them straight from the software to Stampin’ Up! to be printed.  The printed cards are really nice and they come with envelopes too.

She used the Comfort Café digital dsp for the background on the front, the back and the inside.  She added a Crumb Cake band across the middle front, a Very Vanilla decorative label punch and a Night of Navy happy birthday stamp from the Engraved Greetings digital stamp brush set.

After adding the background to the back she included a Night of Navy filled punch with her initials to personalize her creation.

She kept it simple on the inside with more dsp at the top and a ‘make it a good one’ greeting.

Make a few of your own birthday cards and order them today so you’ll always have what you need on hand.

Digital Tuesday – Important Moment Scrapbooking

A Split Second Designer Template – Digital Download
#132562 $2.95

This week my daughter announced her new baby due in November with these cute pictures of my granddaughter holding a chalkboard sign declaring her upcoming status as ‘Big Sister’!  So cute!!  And so exciting!  And ‘Big Sister’ has a new cousin coming in October, so this November baby will be grandbaby #5!  Wow – I feel so blessed!

We all know it’s important to document family milestones.  And we know that scrapbooking is a fantastic way to do it, but sometimes we don’t scrapbook these events because of our perfectionism.  We don’t want to do it unless we can do it ‘right.’  I guess that’s one of the many things I LOVE about MDS.  I can do it, do it ‘right’ and do it FAST!

With traditional scrapbooking I would have spent a couple of hours creating a layout for these pictures, but with MDS this layout took me 10 minutes!! I selected the Split Second Designer Template, dropped in the pictures, shifted the ‘arrow’ embellishment a little to fit the picture and added journaling – that’s it!  Done!
