freelensing love

A few weeks ago I stumbled across an article on freelensing. Tried it once and  loved the results soooo so much! I'm so hooked on it. I love the effect...how it softens the photo so much and leaves just a little bit in focus. So fun to play around with....I'm still working on perfecting it a bit and playing around with it but having so so much fun. I love this effect so much. There's some serious freelensing inspiration here on flickr. Some people are just too good at it!

Leaving for vacation tomorrow..so so excited! Been looking forward to this for so long and now it's finally here. Hope you lovelies have an incredible week..and I'll be back in a week or so!


it's amost time to party!

Lotsa party planning and party making going on right now. Getting ready to throw a big graduation party for my sweet niece next week! A big milestone like this requires extra special  celebrating and extra special decorations...don'tchya think?!  I'm soooo excited about it! It's been a ton of fun to plan and get ready for...and I know the actual celebration will totally top it off!  Till then, I'm soaking all the orange and pink goodness, and crafting to my hearts content!

Goodness!  I. can't. wait. ♥

Turning one is so much fun. Even more fun when you get to get all dressed up to celebrate, and celebrate we did!

I can't stop smiling whenever I look at these photos. This little guy brings so much joy and smiles into every ones life! Love him so. so. much. ♥
