This summer, my kids will be flower girls in Sarah and Chris' wedding. Sarah and her sister were flower girls at my wedding ages ago, so it will come full circle! The kids are so excited about this opportunity! In fact, long before Sarah called them to duty, First Born was drawing herself into the wedding scene and I had to temper her high hopes by throwing away that drawing. This weekend we went dress shopping for the Flower Girls... Here's to hoping that they don't grow too much between now and the wedding this summer, lol!
The other development is that I am going to host a bridal shower for Sarah! I've never hosted an official shower before so this will be quite a challenge. I'm thinking of making the invitations myself, oy vey, I really need to figure out a design that won't be too exhausting. You know the most interesting thing of it all... even though I have an Everest pile of supplies, to produce 20 identical invitations... I might have to get some duplicates! What a strange thought that is! I'm also thinking a banner, cards for prizes, a mini-album for the bride, etc etc. I got my work cut out for me! Oh yeah, there's cake and food, but that's easy,
the immigrant workers my parents will be back, and they will be in charge of that, lol.
Now onto scrappy stuff... here is a layout I did using 3 Scrappy Boys April Trio kit. I love these bright colors together and DH is indeed certifiably yummy **big grin** Seriously, the kids get their good looks from him. Too bad they couldn't get his blue eyes, lol.
Once upon a time, you wouldn't catch me dead layering like I do today! It's wasteful! Now, I can't use enough Helmar Zapdots to prop everything up so I can add just one more layer. Even so, it might not look like a lot of layers to you, but it is to me! I love Studio Calico's stickers, their colors are so vivacious! I also adored these Maya Road half circle chipboards. I wish I have more of those, I can think of so many things to do with them!
