Cool Craft Project from the Web

While skimming the net I found this neat craft project at Lil Luna for those of you that love the temple.  She even offers free pictures of various temples that are already antiqued so that you can make your own.  She also has free files without words if you want to turn this into a RS craft.

Here is a picture that I changed to sepia.

You could probably use the pictures from and antique them yourself if you are using the finished project for personal use....

Shrimp Tacos and Mango Salsa

This post doesn't have anything to do with weddings- but if you like shrimp tacos these are delicious!!!!  I used Holly Clegg's simple recipe, but any basic recipe will do.  Then add this  mango salsa - it's amazing- it's good on tortilla chips as well.  I think I'd use a little less cilantro- but use fresh ingredients and you'll gobble this stuff up- enjoy!

Ready to Share Some Do It Yourself Wedding Ideas

Wow, that was a LONG and exciting five weeks!  I'm home now and ready to share some of my daughter's wedding ideas- I hope they help someone else to have the wedding of their dreams while on a budget!

Our talented photographer was Mindy (my niece) from Bellissima Portraits- there is a link on my sidebar to check out her website and to schedule her to photograph your Utah wedding!

Because we had invited bunches of children to the reception we decided to save money on chair rentals and place some quilts around the yard for the little ones.  This quilt was made from a vintage sheet, washed well, and tied to a white sheet with a small amount of batting.  The children spent so much time playing that I don't think they sat down- but now I have a picnic quilt that I really like!

This flower girl bouquet was made from Hobby Lobby silk flowers at 50% off.  We purchased a small bouquet in the "floral bush" section and changed out some of the flowers and greenery.  The bush was 5$.

I'll post more as I get pictures back-
