Crazy Like a Summer Weekend...

This past weekend, I took First Born to the Science Museum of Minnesota. That museum sits on the bluff overlooking the Mississippi River, the vista was simply stunning!  The trees and grass are newly coated in fresh green colors. Morning thunderstorms washed away dust and dirt. We were at the top of the museum admiring the view: a river runs through it.

Then we headed out to a college graduation party that evening and caught some rain on our way to and back from the party.  The Apocalypse did not completely materialize, but some of the Twin Cities areas were hit hard by tornadoes.  We were fortunate to have been spared.

Sunday I worked on and finished my projects for WIP May kit featuring Echo Park's Summerdays papers. I also made one wedding shower invite. This one is being sent to the bride and the other guests will receive a photograph of the invite, L O L!  I really suck at party planning!  Wish me luck, I really need to get the invites sent out in the next couple of days!

Ooo!!! LOVE the card!!!

And... I did the EXACT same thing for a baby shower! The mama to be got the 'real deal' for her album, and the invites were actually color photo copies on the cover, but opened up and I had text on the inside.

It worked just fine...

What a pretty card, and what a fantastic idea to make the additional cards with photos! Totally going to do that...what a time saver.

Glad you got to experience some beautiful weather...too bad it turned to storms. Happy you and your family are safe.

Your description of the museum vista is amazing. I love the vibrant colors of the midwest in the spring.
