Friday Photo - Independence Day Fun

Milwaukee's Big Bang Fireworks were a bit of a disappointment this year due to fog. The smoke also wouldn't dissipate or blow away. By halfway through the show, we could hear the fireworks, but couldn't see a thing. This is one of the better shots from earlier in the show, but none of my photos compare to the awesomeness of last year. Hopefully we'll have better luck next year.

The boy and I were able to go for a late morning walk near the lake on the 4th. I was happy to capture this great shot. I got a few more shots, too, but this one will be the Friday Photo and we'll see if or when I'll share the others.

As always, click on the picture to see it bigger...

The invitations

Now that the wedding is over and I don't need to worry about any unexpected guests showing up, I can share the invitations I designed. I was really happy with how they turned out and got a lot of great feedback.

You might remember from our Save the Date cards that our reception was a game theme. So I designed the invitations to look like playing cards.

The main part of the invitation features the King and Queen of hearts. I found some text online that I liked and edited it a bit to fit our event. Here's what the main invitation final product looked like:

Since we also needed to include the addresses for the church, reception, and hotel, I made an Ace of hearts card, too. (Get it? 'A' for address?)

I also wanted to include a map since we'd have a lot of out of town guests. I know most people have a GPS these days, but it just seemed like a good idea. For the map, I saved a screenshot of the area in Google Maps, then traced over the lines I wanted in Photoshop Elemen…

Note, Ru doesn't nap.

Feet are Fun!

She's so cute when she plays with her feet, though it does make it difficult to change and dress her...
