Headboard Wall

 Look at this sweet headboard Tony built on our bedroom wall! Since we moved in, we haven't done much with our bedroom. This is what it used to look like:

We were in Las Vegas a few weeks ago and saw this cool wall at Outback Steakhouse.

 We also saw this awesome picture & frame, which I absolutely love!

I love how each color in the background matches the colors in the photo.

Don't mind my awkward face :) I didn't realize I'd be in the picture.  With these as our inspiration, Tony started collecting wood. Most of it came from a friend's fence 
that had blown over.

First he made a big mess :) and framed the wall so that it would pop out. 

 He got the colors from a photo we had taken when we went to Mexico. 

 I love how he also made the picture come out of the wall. He bought big 4" bolts and put 3 nuts behind it to hold the picture stiffly.

I loved the way it turned out! It makes me want to put the finishing touches on the rest of the room.

Sweet Bria

We are so excited to have this little angel in our family!!!
 I had so much fun making a pretty little dress for her. I just used a little bit of Satin for the majority of the dress. Then I bought some pre-made ruffles and flowers and added them to it. I've also had way too much fun making hair bows and flowers :)

 This is a snap-shot of our family on her blessing day.
Here's a full view of the dress. 
The flowers on the bottom look complicated, but they are acutally just a roll of ribbon from Hobby Lobby. It made my job so easy!
