I'm so lucky I get to spend my days filled with my two loves -- being a designer and a mom to 2 kids (and 1 dog). I am drawn to simple graphic patterns, unexpected color palettes, and fresh typography. My personal style ranges from simple and modern to warm and whimsical, and am constantly inspired from everyday life.

Your wedding submissions this challenge are stunning Carolyn! Beautiful work!!!
Thanks for your lovely comments, Carolyn! You're wedding submissions are wonderful too!! :)
I'm so sorry Carolyn,I didn't mean to bother you with a query or anything of that sort,it's just things weren't working at that particular moment in time & I was just fretting since I really wanted that design to work out. Thankfully it does & I've made the changes as you suggested. Thanks for your sweet words on my Tropical design & sorry once again :)
Thankyou Carolyn for your prompt feedback,I'm obsessing over this design,trying all these lay outs.I've been trying these options in AI & it's not letting me. For some reason AI thinks that the floral pattern is too heavy for a clipping mask & might & that the document might fail...
