Amanda and Matthew's monograms

Amanda contacted me through the Custom Printables website for a pair of monograms in her wedding colors, Pure Violet and Pure Yellow Orange. Here are the Adele and Mira monograms. (I'd say she picked a great name in a fiance named Matthew!)

Thanks to my blog friends!

I've been quite busy with some custom projects lately, but wanted to give a special shout-out and thanks to some new blogging friends who posted about the free Happy New Year 2011 Subway Art download.

First - the biggest and most humble thanks to Mod Podge Rocks, who posted a full tutorial on how to print and frame the poster in a fab-u-lous gilded frame. Let's be honest. This photo is beyond my wildest expectations for how the piece would come out.
