We have 2 lovely daughters; 
Each getting married within a very short time period.  
Life is a bit of a whirlwind, it is all very precious.  
A precious stage of life that too quickly fades to memories 
These days will be treasured for many years. 

May you take away a treasure or two as you visit here today    ~jk

Table Decor
A fresh flower bouquet on each table, each vase was unique, 

Menus to describe the unique dishes for guests who were 
not familiar with dishes from the International Cuisine 

Fun With Paper Crafting for Weddings!


Chalkboards are very popular for wedding messaging and signs.  We were SO lucky to have Kimberly Salisbury from Paisley Parrot Designs create these for us!

We knew that not all guests would be interested in dancing, so board games were set out as additional entertainment and it was a big hit!  Grandpa playing card games with the kids' college friends was priceless!

Dinner was served as an International Buffet  

Chalkboard Messaging by Kimberly from Paisley Parrot showed guests where to find their favorite food choices.

Make It Monday #108 Inked Backgrounds

Today's card was a fresh inspiration with hopes of Spring after a very long winter in Minnesota!  The emboss resist technique is using the In Bloom set from Papertrey Ink, along with Framed Out #4 set for the sentiment.

Also inspiring the layout is an older Make It Monday (#67 by Betsy Veldman).  I can't believe how often I use the layouts provided in that episode! So here it is, let me know what you think.

Make It Monday #107: Clear Card & Copic Coloring Basics

A fun technique for this week.
I had not tried making a card with clear acrylic sheets.  It was easy and fun!
Thank you Papertrey Ink for the inspiration.
The birthday greeting is from PTI Fillable Frames Sentiments.

Make It Monday #105 - Glitter Trim
I used glue dots to create the dot for glitter on the eggs.  
A GREAT idea from Theresa, my paper crafting buddy!
And of course spring flowers using the Flower Fusion sets from Papertrey Ink
