Wedding Day

So, I was one of those people who got up at 4 am to watch the Royal Wedding. It was so worth it!! My sister in law spent the night and brought scones. We got up and were glued to the TV, tissues in hand. We had tea and scones and oohed and ahhed over everything. I remember being in high school when Charles and Diana got married, so I didn't want to miss this special occasion. It was just magical!

I have a couple of things to share today. This first card is one I did for Emmas't his week. I used a Maya Road chipboard heart album. I painted two of the pages and added glitter to one. Then I added Webster's Country Estate papers, a silhouette cameo and some Storyteller Alphas. I tied them together with some vintage ribbon.




I really like how it turned out!

This next project uses an old vase I found at a thrift store. I paid a dollar for it. Adding some Prima flowers, gems and trim gave it a facelift.




That's about it for today. I'm going to head back to the TV to see if there's any more coverage. Yeah, I'm a sucker for romance.

Thanks for stopping by!
