Unfortunately for me, and anyone that enjoys my photo of the day, my computer appears to be on its last legs. I've been getting the dreaded blue screen for a while now, and tonight it won't even stay on for long before freezing or restarting itself. It appears to be a hardware issue, which I could probably attempt to troubleshoot, but the poor box is 4.5 years old. It may just be time to throw in the towel (and a chunk of our savings) and look for a new computer. In any case,  I won't be able to edit pictures, let alone post them on a regular basis, so my 2014 photo of the day is on hiatus until further notice.

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...
