Cutest proposal idea :: The Bebez Book

Friend and creative genius Bryan proposed to his darling lady Robbi with the most precious and clever idea of writing her a children's story. The two of them as kids... with Robbi's beloved lab, Marti as a pup. Each page is centered around a letter of the alphabet, describing what she means to him and it's just one adorable adventure with lots of personal flair. Of course, when we get to the W page, she was in for a huge surprise as he asked her to be his wife in the exact location as illustrated. (Marti was tied to the bench and he even had a plaid shirt on!)

Bryan came up with every single detail in each scene, so I had a blast just helping his funny vignettes come to life. It was my huge honor to get to be part of this project! Way to set the bar high for all the single men left in the universe :)

Graphic Design: Baby girl name announcement

My friend Ashleigh {of Thankfully Thrifty} and her husband wanted to announce to friends and family their daughter's name in a special way. They also wanted to share the meaning of the beautiful name they had labored over and give specific ways to pray for baby girl's life. I love it.

Here's where we landed. Noble, feminine, and crisp for a sweet family.

Baby Lankford-01

[Thanks, Ash!]

New lens + Hill country

I am completely in hog heaven with my new lens. Yes. Here was my first snap.

We enjoyed lots of porch time at the B&B, strolled, shopped and soaked up time away. And ate like kings.  And saw Texas Hill country critters near and far.

Graphic Design: a uniquely FUN couples shower invitation

For a creative friend and shower hostess extraordinaire, Allison. [Thanks, friend!]

They had this great entertainment theme in mind, so we ran with it! Bold, names in lights, little bit of Broadway, little bit of Vegas... Lots of fun to design.

Smoochin' Contest

Just for kicks (and maybe, well, the lure of possible prize$...) hubby and I created some kiss photos (complete with bad Photoshopping) for the marriage conference we were part of last weekend. (Amazing! You can and should catch some of the audio.)
So 3000 people were encouraged to send in creative kissing photos. Sounds like a great idea!

These were tons of fun, so I thought I'd share them and add them to my portfolio to pull down my serious post average.

These are all Uncommon kisses you may not have heard of but we thought you should try:

May your marriage be enriched by these gems ;)

Candids: Sky

Looking through some of my phone pics and picking up on a theme here...

I'm a sky nut. Any hint of color, texture, moodiness going on in the sky and I feel the urge to take a pic.  Thought I'd share some everyday beauty I've snapped. (A couple are from our New England trip...you might be able to tell. Hint: not my view out the window at work)
