Best Wishes + Celebrity Photo

Hey there! How is it going? Everything is going great around my way. Last night, I had to run to Georgetown (Ritz Carlton) to help McArthur photograph a music release party. A few local celebrities like TV anchors, Leon Harris, Jim Vance, and Andrea Roane were there. Ginuwine and his wife Sole also made an appearance and were very cordial. They loved taking pictures and here is one that I took of them! Neat, huh?! His new album is to be released next month I believe. He is a DC Metro native and grew up not too far from my Maryland hometown. I saw him in concert while I was in undergrad, so it was so fun to see him again! He's a really nice person, along with his wife as well.


Anyway, I made today's card last night after returning from Georgetown and needed to make something quick because I was tired. So, I pulled out the SEI Bridgeport collection. I won the collection from Cath's Moxie Fab World blog from the Citrus Color challenge a few weeks ago. When I received my package, I was so happy to see that she sent an SEI collection because I really like SEI and this collection is beautiful. The textures and colors are by far my favortie parts to this collection. I can't wait to use it again.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!
