Board #400 | Wild, Retro West

Can you believe this is the 400th board that I’ve posted? Honestly, I think it’s absolutely crazy. Though there are times when I’ll revisit a previous theme or palette, I hope that you feel inspired in some way every time you visit Snippet & Ink. So, for my 400th trick… a retro cool wedding in the desert of the Old West.

Mood: retro cool meets Old West
Palette: cactus green, dusty blue, tumbleweed

    Congratulations! Just a thought- I know there's something called Blog 2 print….and your boards would be a great book- really a great resource for any wedding planner to have on their bookshelf. Have you ever thought of turning the boards into a book?

    Love it! I love anything with a western theme to it! I was considering doing something similar with my own wedding but I think there are enough ideas already going around.
