Wow!!!! It has been a LONG time since I put a blog post up!!!! My sister's wedding was a wonderful event all the way back at the end of March!
My brother and I took the pictures for the happy couple and here is my favorite photo of the new Mr. and Mrs Paull from the outdoor shots:
Aren't they a sweet couple!!!!!!
Here is a candid shot of Tim and his Aunt Beth before the ceremony. We
were in the hotel room hiding before the big event because the guests
had begun to arrive...I forget what song they were singing now....
It was a lovely event and we all had a wonderful time! I was busy processing photos and then some other things came up including touring and selecting a new school for Tim to go to next year. To be honest I cannot believe it is already June! School gets out here in Seattle on June 19th! We cannot wait! Summer is on its way to the Pacific Northwest!
Father's Day is this weekend and I found zero cards in my stash so this afternoon Tim and I came downstairs to our little art studio in the basement and tried to remember how to make cards! LOL! I made a very basic card and felt very rusty while doing so! Tim however did a WONDERFUL job using my copics and stamps! Here is what he made for his Grandpa Wendell, Stuart's Father, who we are off to visit this weekend:
The sweet puppy dog and sentiment are from a Sweet N Sassy Stamp set from 2012 called - you guessed it - "Gone Fishin". Tim wanted the sentiment to look like it was caught on the hook at the end of the line. I love the way he colored the background and made a sun and cloud as well as a fishing pond and ground. He worked really hard on this card and I am so proud of him for finishing it! He has some fine motor and processing skill issues which we go to therapy for each week and he has made great strides this year! I know that his Grandpa will enjoy receiving it!
Here is the very basic card I made for my Dad using some Lil Inker
On the inside I added a wonderful sentiment from a Waltzing Mouse Stamp Set called "Man of the Hour"
The sentiment says: "The Greatest Gift I ever had Came from God I call him DAD". I love the sentiments in this set!!! Sorry I did not take a photo of it! I love the graphic feel of it!
I hope you all enjoy time with the special men in your lives this weekend! And if you, like Tim and I, are missing that special someone I hope that warm memories bring peace to your heart. I know that we will be sending big hugs to Papa Stuart up in heaven and remembering some wonderful times that we were blessed to have shared with him!
Jill and Tim and our Angel Papa Stuart! :)
