Weddings and Family
Well the current Tuesday challenge over at Flourishes is to chose a word or image that represents one of your goals and to inspire you in the new year.
Check out the challenge here - www.flourishes.org/blog/
I chose this wedding image because weddings are a time to get together with family and friends and since we live so far from most of our families that the few times we can all be together are even more special. One of my goals for the new year will be to make and send more cards for all occasions and for no reason whatsoever as a way of keeping in touch better, and to take any opportunity to treasure family moments (even more important with one of my kiddos away at college and number 2 will be off to college this year too).
I did this wedding keepsake box for a friend to give to her daughter that is getting married. I love when I can make one of these box and book combos specially made to match their colors and style and loved how this one turned out!!!
All the stamps are from Flourishes - the wedding couple embossed in white and the 'sunflowers' are from the gerber daisy set colored to look like sunflowers that the bride is using for her flowers. I fussy cut the flowers out and arranged them how I wanted them.
I made the 6 by 6 memory book to match and is ready for the wedding couple to just add their own pictures.
Well now that I have warmed up a bit - got home from work just as the DH and my princess of a puppy were headed out for a walk - and the wind was very brisk and very COLD this morning!!! - It is time for me to head to bed to sleep....
Have a great weekend everyone!!
