First off, I am the biggest GEEK when it comes to the Olympics. I love them. Since the opening ceremony was last night, I just had to share some of my favorite pics from them.

Mr. Bean. Kev and I cheered and instantly busted out laughing when we saw he was "playing" in Chariots of Fire. He's hilarious!

It was a very beautiful event. I'm really happy I got to watch it and that the Olympics have officially begun!

Wedded bliss & artsiness

In the month of July some of my best friends got married. First up was Krystle & Josh Goodman. Krystle, who is one of my "co-ladies" in Hello Ladies, had one of the most unique and awesome weddings I've ever been to. Her groom, Josh, wanted to give his guys something different than the usual boutonnieres guys have at weddings, so Krystle and I put our heads together and came up with an idea that would be unique as well as funny. I made badges for them! Since they all play MW3 (that's Modern Warfare 3 for the layperson), we decided to make the badges look like gun scope crosshairs and incorporated the wedding colors of yellow & grey. I think they turned out quite nicely!

I had just the right colors of felt in my menagerie!

This was Josh's - I thought it was pretty cool that the "G" could stand for Groom or his last name, Goodman.

Here's the lot of them. Sorry for the sideways pic, I couldn't get it to turn no matter what I tried.

It was a beautiful wedding, and I'm so glad that Krystle asked me to be a part, as well as a guest! Congrats you two!

Next up, was Jenna & Josh Rodgers' wedding. I was the matron of honor in this wedding, which made me waaaay busier! LOL Jenna (also a previous Hello Lady), had a few ideas as far as decor, but mostly she just wanted to get married. Since their wedding was outside in the middle of July in Arkansas (albeit in the evening after sunset), it was still hot so her mom had an idea to make fans for all the guests to use. She asked if I could do something artsy to put on the fans and so this is what I came up with:

Their wedding ended up being so beautiful and I was so honored to be a part of it as well. I'm so happy for them!

It's been a wonderful month of L-O-V-E. :) Now hopefully, I can get some paintings done!!
