A Wedding Celebration

A few weeks ago, my friend/neighbor and her husband of 20 years had their marriage validated through the Catholic Church.  It was a small intimate ceremony, which by the way was very touching.  It is wonderful to see people who have been married 20 years still very much in love and to share that Love with Christ makes it that much more special. 

They had a small gathering at their house afterwards and as my gift to them, I made a couple of things to make their day a special memory.....

The first thing I made was a simple set of Mr & Mrs glasses for them to toast!

 To create these I used my Cameo! 



 The Maid of Honor's single rose to carry!
I simply wrapped a long steam rose with some blue ribbon and added a bow!


 Of course I made the cake for her!
And the cake top using some cardboard from a Budweiser box, white card stock, spray glue and silver glitter.  I created the "Mr.& Mrs" in the Sihouette Studio and then cut it out using my Cameo.  I cut several layers to make it sturdier.  I added some wooden skewers as pics between the last two layers.  Added it to the finished cake and there you have it! 


 This is the bride, my Mom made her bouquet!

I hope you enjoyed my share today!  Have a wonderful day!!!!
Until next time........

Here's my project I've created for you...




I colored my cute little bug using my regular crayola pencil colors.  I cut him out using the coordinating die.  I popped up the little guy using some foam squares and added him to the top note cut from some pattern paper.  I cut a second top note from green paper and using my Martha Stewart fringe scissors I made some grass.  I love the sentiments included in this stamp set!  I used the flower stamp along with different shades of pink and purple to add a boarder along the bottom of the inside panel.

Be sure to join us tomorrow for another great new stamp set.

Now here is my project I've created for this party....


For my shaker, I used an image from the Silhouette Store.  
The image was cute at 3 1/2 inches and layered together as per the instructions.  
I used some assorted baby seed beads as my shaker filler.  I wanted it to make noise like a real rattle.  My fabulous sentiment is from CDD's Snips & Snail's Stamp Set!
