Engaged {& other news}

I shared this layout on the Challenge blog recently (as I announced the end of challenges on that blog... for now) and thought I should share it here as well! As many of you know- I recently got engaged to a wonderful man and am so excited to be marrying him in August!  We had a photo shoot with our wedding photographer, Laureen Carruthers, and these are a few that I scrapbooked.  I added some other photos from the shoot to a layout with these same papers (Basic Grey's Serenade collection) from our POTM class last year... one of those layouts I loved sooo much, it needed to wait for the perfect photos (I'm sure none of you understand that at all LOL).

here's a bit of a close up of my embellishment cluster :)
This page has actually been done for a while... I believe I used the May sketch from the PageMaps calendar!

I suppose I should say something about the blogs and closing the store... The challenge blog is officially closed (but not actually getting deleted, just in case!) and our retail store, Creative Accents, is closing at the end of this month- June 29 to be exact. We had hoped to find a buyer, but nothing has come together with that yet (feel free to call us if you're interested though!) so we are clearing out inventory and shelving!  There's just two weeks left and the savings are getting better and better... stop by and see us soon while we still have some great product variety!

Our online store, creativeaccentsonline.ca is not closing yet, as we're paid up for a few months still ;)  You can keep an eye on things there and you may just find some fantastic savings as we clear out leftover inventory!

This blog is not going anywhere!  It may be pretty quiet here for a bit as we close the store, plan and prep for the wedding and get me packed up and moved... but I'll be back!  I'm looking forward to giving the blog a fresh new look and sharing projects from the wedding as well as projects I create once I'm moved into my new home and set up my studio there :)

by the way... my next blog post is number 1000!  Check back soon as I'll have some BIG BLOG CANDY to share with y'all in celebration!

Not one to chat a lot online I just want to tell you how much I love your creative talent and work, Tara! So sorry for the store closing, and losing this option in the Williams Lake area. SO HAPPY for your upcoming marriage, though! Very excited for you, and the family too. :)
