Checking Off the List

Isn't checking things off a list one of the best feelings ever? It's such a sense of accomplishment. I love that.

I am almost completely done scanning photos for the slideshow! This is so exciting. You know when you build something up in your head that is going to be tedious and awful, but then when you sit down to actually do it, it's not that bad? Well that's definitely what has happened to me with scanning and cropping all these photos. I think I'm "on a roll," lol.

I will say that peeling back the sticky paper from old school albums to get to the photos is a little scary. I'm realizing it's ok though and I won't ruin the photos or paper.

While in this process, what Mr. P doesn't know is that I am on the hunt for a really great pic of his mom to put next to the small display I'm going to make for her. I think I have found one or two contenders where I can crop her and she looks really fabulous.

Speaking of which, I've decided what I'm going to do to honor his mom. Yay! Another decision checked off the list! Thanks so much for the ideas and help; it really got my wheels turning and I've finally decided exactly what I'm going to do. The only other person who knows about it is Mr. P's sister because I needed some info from her to accomplish the DIY project. Sorry I'm not telling this one...I love, love surprises so I'm trying to keep a couple for the wedding because usually I'm such an open book! But don't worry, I'll of course take some pics of the process and post after the wedding - hopefully you guys can wait till then ;) Just wanted to mention it because I feel relieved to have thought of something really good to do and also wanted to thank you for the help again.

I love these 'memorials' incorporated into weddings as well.

This last one is my fave.
