the colorful weekend.

Colorful. What does it mean to you?

In my opinion, it means that people live in an array of shades; it means that life isn’t just black and white. To me, it means living a life filled with exciting journeys and positive people.

It was definitely a fun weekend with family and friends. We were able to make it up to San Francisco for the parade this weekend. We walked around, enjoyed the beautiful weather, and had a great time dancing to the music. It was definitely a colorful weekend to remember!

Here were just a few of some of those colorful photos from the parade:

Looks like a crazy time, huh?! Well, it pretty much was, so I didn’t really get that many photos of all of us playing in the streets. Next time, I have to remember to shoot photos of the important people, haha!

Natalie (Sean’s sweetheart), me, and Angel (my scrap/anxious sister) stopped for a photo.

Random group shot.

Is that Gloria giving that creep the stink eye for Angel?!

…and some photos from the phone:

Those are all the photos I have for now. I told you that I didn’t take that many.

If you haven’t made it out to a Pride Parade, you should definitely experience it at least once. I think it’s definitely a one-of-a-kind experience. That is if you’re open to that kind of thing, haha!

I feel the urge to be crafty. WOW! Right now, I plan on pulling out my rotary cutter and playing with fabric. I also want to work on a handful of paper projects. Decisions, decisions. I always want to do 13,940,823,290 things, and that becomes hazardous, haha! I wish I could pick ONE task and just go with it. Hmmm… I do, however, have an American Crafts project in mind. Maybe I shall start with that?

There are lots of exciting, crafty opportunities arising in my near future. I can’t really say anything just yet, but it’s gonna be good!

PS: I can’t wait for this upcoming weekend! I get an extra day to play, and we’ll be spending it with family for our annual get together. It’s gonna be filled with more color (aka, fireworks). Seriously, I can’t wait for the tasty BBQ and our family fireworks.

PPS: It’s the last week on the project. Are you excited?! I am.

california gurls (and guys).

For some reason, I have “California Gurls” stuck in my head. It’s not one of my favorite songs, but it’s catchy. Hence, I’ve got it on repeat in my head.

I may have heard it yesterday when we were out in the city celebrating one of San Francisco’s craziest and biggest celebrations, Pride Parade. It’s colorful and over-the-top, but more importantly, it’s major fun. Anyway, here are some fun pictures from this weekend’s event:

Sparkle, sparkle, sparkle.

These past few days have been unbelievably exhausting. Today, I’ve been recuperating from a weekend full of fun in the sun.

I spent the majority of my weekend playing in the city. Here are some pictures from this weekend’s annual Pride parade:

Last but not least, I can’t go without sharing some of my recent layouts. The following two layouts were created for Pink Sketches. Can you believe that we are on Sketch #37?! I loved the simple sketch so much, so I did two this time around. Link up your layout at Pink Sketches, and we’ll add you to the Pink Gallery!

Tomorrow, I plan on doing some major scrapping. Hopefully, I’ll be able to crank out a few. *crosses fingers* …oh, and before I forget, I plan on drawing a winner to the online gift certificate tomorrow! Check back for the winner. 🙂



PS: I’m so jealous of all of you girls that spent the weekend at the SISaversary! I wish I could’ve been there. I’m glad all of you had tons of fun though! Perhaps next year I’ll be able to make it.
