Good morning to you my friends! I have so much to share with you, but I will spread it out over the next couple of days, so as not to bore you! ;)
But first, let's start with my card shall we?
I created this wedding card using the Divine Wedding Cartridge by Creative Memories. I dolled up my bride quite a bit with glitter, a lace doily for her skirt, a pearl for her hair, and little posies for her to hold. Oh! And a bit of blush! Every bride should blush on her wedding day!
The large flower was cut using Flower Shoppe. I added a few Prima flowers I had on hand to fill in around it. I wanted it to resemble a wedding bouquet. The stamp is from Papertrey Ink.
As you know, Cortney had her big photo shoot on Saturday. It was in Chicago on Michigan Ave. From start to finish, it was like a dream. The studio is only something I've seen in movies. A total "pinch me" kind of day.
Michael Canavan, the photographer, was so incredibly warm and down to earth. He treated the kids with such kindness and respect. Cortney's boyfriend, Jimmy, was selected too. : ) Michael decided he wanted to take a few pictures of the two of them. They have such a cute relationship that I couldn't wait to see what he captured. These blurry shots were just from my I-phone, but it makes me giggle when I see the two of them. My daughter looks like she is being a bit bossy? ;)
There was a make-up artist there for touch ups, assistants to help us, and a talent agent named Markus was there too. He runs a talent agency called, Real People. He also took our kids' pictures to put in his data base. He explained to us how it works and such. How cool would that be? My daughter possibly chosen for an ad or something?
I feel like this is just the beginning for these kids. It is time they were really seen by the public. They have so much to offer. If everyone in the world were so kind to one another, what a peaceful world we would live in.
So continue to cross your fingers and toes......
and a prayer or two.....
That these children will be made visible to the public.
Make a difference.
Change attitudes abut disabilities.
And be "seen" in a whole new light.
Thank you for taking this journey with me and allowing me share this piece of myself with you.
