Thank You

I need to send a big THANK YOU to Jolene for helping me (actually creating) set up my blog. It has taken me 2 years to enter the world of blogging - and I've done so kicking and screaming. But in just a couple of days Jolene has made it sooooo easy for me to add photos, add gadgets (who knew about them!) and post entries. She even made me the gorgeous header show above.


Wedding Tissues

I created 50 of these tissue "favors" for the wedding. They are very simple to do and add just a touch of elegance to a wonderful day.
Cut cardstock to fit around each tissue pack.
Punch each side of the cardstock with a border punch.
Add some self adhesive vellum or pattern paper to the center of the cardstock band.
Wrap around the tissues, adding tape to the reverse side.
Cut some tulle and tie around the tissues.
Print the sentiment on white cardstock and cut with a tag punch.
Cut a larger tag for backing.
Add an eyelet.
Put ribbon through the eyelet and tie to the tulle
Bazzill cardstock
Colorbox vellum
Making Memories eyelets
Offray ribbon

More wedding photos

Well, I must say that my son cleaned up very well for the wedding. His first suit plus red shirt and tie and he was a handsome 14 year old. He even smiled throughout the evening, something I rarely see anymore.

I do, finally

My niece was married this past Saturday and boy was it a gorgeous day for such a gorgeous bride and handsome groom. We wish them all the best.
