Weddings

Some friends of ours wedding was at the beginning of August and I have to say this was the most fun wedding I had ever been to. The bride and groom had both been married before so instead of the regular type of wedding they decided to do a theme wedding, which was the "Roaring Twenties". The couple have acreage on a lake and the wedding ran through a whole weekend. Everyone brought their campers, trailers or tents and we all camped on their property. Most people arrived on the Friday night, there was a "Speak Easy" bar set up in one part of this huge work shop that had been built and the other half of it had a stage and all the tables set up for the reception. On the Friday night one of the fellows of the band for the wedding played an acoustic guitar and was taking requests and a bit of karaoke, even my grand kids got up and sang. The ceremony was at noon on the Saturday, the wedding party were all in costume and most of the quests were in costume.  There was a few hours between the ceremony and the reception, which was a good thing as it was so hot we definitely needed a swim in the lake. The reception was fabulous, lots of good food, good friends, dancing....definitely the best wedding I've been to. I did the wedding invitations for our friends wedding, here's a pic of the invitation and a few of photo's from the wedding.
 In case you're wondering the fellow with the bunny ears in his hat is suppose to be "Bugsy Malone", lol.

Swirlydoos Featured Member

I've felt really honored this month as I was chosen to be one of the "Featured Members" for August over at Swirlydoo's Kit Club. What makes this so special is that while I am a member of the group I have not been able to purchase the kits yet but that doesn't matter with this group, you are treated like everyone else. Krissy has built a great group, everyone is like family. Swirlydoo's is definitely the right place to hang out! Thanks so much for this honor ladies!

I seem to have disappeared in the last few months. It seems my MS has been really acting up for quite awhile and I haven't had a lot of good days where I wanted to scrap. We have had a really hot, dry summer and the heat, as much as I love it, is not really good for my MS it just exacerbates my symptoms I already have, as well as create new problems. Combine that with getting older and you find that this getting older thing sucks big time! 

Well enough about that. I did manage to get one layout done in all of this time and am quite happy as to how it turned out. This was a photo I took of my grandson when the kids were here last summer (2013). My grandson was just sitting relaxing after searching for crabs under the rocks with his sister. I just called his name and snapped this photo as he looked up at me. This was also done for one of the round robins at Swirlydoo's Kit Club, my lift of one of the DT members, thanks for the inspiration Maggi!
