We are off and running with 2011 projects and this week has already been full of some stunning painted paper goodies.  First up is Rachel bold and red Hibiscus bloom painted with sheer shimmer inks.  Papers choices included a lovely linen textured palm leaf pattern and a shimmery brick red cardstock.  The celebrations is unfolding at Zephyr Palace, Villa Caletas in Puerto Rico.   Rachel and Spencer’s artwork tag features a stunning view of the ceremony site with the serene waters as a backdrops.  Guests should be instantly enchanted by the scene, I know we were while painting the original!

With our annual Holiday party for friends and family coming up this Saturday I thought it perfect to share the custom invitation sent to guests!  Abu and Spice are the two newest additions to our family, adopted from Best Friends in Utah!  I created simple sketches of each pup and combined with a classic script font and paisley pattern.  Silly and sweet and just the perfect amount of whimsy for our yearly celebration!
