Foto Friday Week 4

Friday, September 30, 2011

Between being sick and getting ready for hello there! house next week, I've been non-existent here! I promise to get back in the groove, I'm just trying to take it one day at  a time and burn through my to do lists!

So, without further ado- this week's Foto Friday is......

One of my new favorite places is The Coffee Shop at Agritopia. It is a lovely little cafe surrounded by beauty and it makes THE. BEST. pastries and coffee. If you are ever in Gilbert and need a place with some charm and happiness, The Coffee Shop is where it's at. 

And here is the link to Krystin's blog where she is sharing one of her favorite places!

Foto Friday: Week 3

Friday, September 23, 2011

BUT here is my link to Hilary! Follow all the links to see everyone else's entries for today- and I promise to make mine up next week!

Team Tuesday: Busy Bee To Do Lists

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

Happy Tuesday! Here's this week's Rendition of Rhonna Design's Team Tuesday:

I was in desperate need of some new to do lists, and the Honeycomb kits were the perfect solution! I used both the Background kit & the Pieces kit, plus a little bit of the 6 week shape up brush kit to had some pizzaz.

Shotgun Wedding {At The Temple}

Monday, September 19, 2011

I mean, the images really speak for themselves. Andy & Jenny are basically head-over-heels in love and just couldn't be happier about being husband and wife (and they planned their wedding in about 2 weeks!) How cute are they?

Today's Foto Friday theme is..............Retro?

I'm pretty sure all of us drew a bit of a blank when this challenge came up? What the heck is Retro? What does it all mean? Why am I so hungry?

Anywhoo, so I went to the coveted Pinterest to try and find some Retro inspiration and this is what I came up with:

Some photos of the family

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

It's nearly impossible to get everyone in my family photographed at the same time. This weekend we were able to snag some cute shots of Olivia, Braden, Landen, and even I.

Maybe this weekend we can get some of Penelope, Evelyn, & Georgia ;)

Team Tuesday: Spooky Junque Delight

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

Can I tell you that when Rhonna hinted on her blog that the Halloween kits would be hitting the stores this past weekend, I was on my iphone like white on rice checking to see if they had gone live yet. THE VERY MINUTE she emailed us for the "gone live" go ahead,  I downloaded them and got to work. 

First off, do you all know that I am obsessed with holiday decorating? Like, it absolutely oozes from every nook & cranny in my home. And each year, Halloween stuff starts popping up a little sooner than the last year. So yes, on the 10th of September, it started to turn into The Watson's Halloween Home. 

I first whipped up theses {To. Die. For.} candy cones. I mean, these are the stinkin cutest things, and they are so incredibly easy. Absolutely anyone can create these, they come all packaged up nice & neat for you  in one kit, all you need to do is print & cut. I added a ruffled crepe streamer trim at the top, but everything else was included on one page of the candy cones. And there's two more styles! 

Next,  I wanted to take {Scary Photos} of all my kids and put them around my house for Halloween, so yesterday was Olivia's day. Here are some {witchy}  photos accented by some more of the Spooky Junque Kits:

And these are the kits I used: 

Seriously, you need some Spooky Junque in your life. And it's so so fab that these designs are out so early so you can slowly but surely start decorating for All Hallows Eve instead of freaking out the week of Halloween and getting only half the stuff up that you wanted and only having it up for 5 days, and cursing yourself for procrastinating. Not that I would know anything about that or anything. 

Now run on over to Rhonna's Blog to see what the rest of the team has come up with for Team Tuesday!

Monday, September 12, 2011

The wedding we shot over Labor Day Weekend in Pinetop has produced well over a thousand images. We're combing through them and editing them as quickly as possible, but I wanted to share a few of my favorites here:
