A New Creation!

I recently came across a decorative frame which sparked my interest in making Scrapframes! I think the idea of a scrapframe is's essentially a scrapbook page that becomes part of your home decor! Why not create a masterpiece (which would ordinarily be found in an album...hidden on your bookshelf) and take it to the wall to share with everyone who enters your home?! I love this idea...and thought I would give it my own little spin! Here is my first official scrapframe that I made for a co-worker who just got married. The title is; Something Old Something New and there is a poem that reads-

A Lasting Marriage Is Based On Many Things

A close relationship is based on friendship.

A caring relationship is based on sharing and understanding.

A romantic relationship is based on giving freely and on the ability to receive gratefully and graciously.
An intimate relationship is based on openness and honesty.

An affectionate relationship is based on patience and acceptance.

A secure relationship is based not on promises, but rather on trust, respect, faithfulness and the ability to forgive.
A lasting marriage is based on all of these bound together by love.

These frames are can make them your own and personalize them for any occasion/person! I know the picture does no justice for this piece, but for my first scrapframe...I must say, it came out pretty darn good! Enjoy!
Until next time...

New Beginnings

Hi!! Welcome to my blog!

For those of you who don't know me, my name is Wahkuna. I'm an apparel designer by day and scrapbook artist by night! I love all things creative and inspiring!

I'm also engaged to the most wonderful man in the world! His name is Christian and he's a U.S. Marine. Our wedding is scheduled for August 1, 2009 and we are both very excited for our big day!!

Life is so unpredictable and you can never know what to expect! I definately didn't expect to experience everything I have this past year and 1/2. In this time period I have met the love of my life, together we survived a deployment in Iraq and are now on our way to building the foundation for our future! So...I decided that starting a blog to document our journey through the wedding planning process while also displaying some of my favorite finds and creative work, would be a great way to capture memories for years to come and hopefully these posts will be inspiring to some of you too!

During the past few years I've realized that this world is full of creative inspiration if you just take the time to live life and enjoy everything along the way! It's also important to keep your camera on you at all times, so you are guaranteed to catch all of those important moments, whether big or small and never miss a thing! Stay tuned...
