The Wedding March Hop!

Hello and a Happy Monday to you all!  Did you enjoy your weekend?  I am hopefully on my way driving home the 10.5 hour drive from Michigan to Virginia today--yikes.  Then I will get home and "die" for a few hours so I can get up and be productive on Tuesday, hee hee.  I am actually home for a few weeks this time and then gone almost all of June with 3 travel locations for classes (including Vegas me thinks) and then a 2 week beach vacation in Hilton Head, SC.  NO groaning please! LOL!  I know I just got home from Maui BUT that is not a normal spring break trip for us and because spring break was so late it kinda all got mushed together.  We go to SC every summer for 2 weeks and rent the same house on the beach---it is a family-only event (no friends much to my daughter's chagrin, hee hee) and we really relax and enjoy each other.  BUT I do work while I'm there LOL but only late evenings so no one gets mad at me.  South Carolina will be my home state in a few years---after the kids graduate I have BIG plans to move down there.  I like the slower pace of life and the much warmer and milder winters of course--I feel like it was meant for me to live there!  So five more years and I will be SC bound for good, LOL!

NewsBitz:

-New locations of Copic Classes will be up this week on my site www.cmcroad.com to include Ohio and possibly Las Vegas.  If you are interested in classes in Ontario in August the registration info is up and I am amazed as usual and thankful but the spots are filling up very quickly so act now, LOL!

***********************************************************
The Wedding March Hop!



Today the Magnolia-licious DT has a fun "Wedding Themed" Blog Hop for you that includes using some awesome Scor-Pal projects as well.  Since May & June are the busiest and most popular of wedding months we thought it was appropriate to work on some great wedding Magnolia projects.  You can find more Blog Hop details on the Magnolia Highlites Blog as well as a way to join in on the fun!  I made a card using some beautiful stamps and a matching purse/bag that could be given to the Flower Girl (or bride) with a nice treat or gift inside.  See HERE for a complete selection of Magnolia wedding stamps from Magnolia-licious!

I used the most beautiful stamp from Magnolia--I think it is just so sweet and its called "Bride & Bridesmaid #3051".  A perfect image for the bride or for the flower girl me thinks.  My papers from Basic Grey's "Capella" really created the color combo of creams and soft aqua blues.  The scrolls are from Marianne Designs and then I accented them with Prima roses and pearl sprays.  The corner brackets were made using a MS border punch and then I accented them with Ranger Liquid Pearls in platinum that look like small pearls. 


To color my image I used my Copics along with the Colorless Blender as a sort of paintbrush to create the very soft faded colors.  I used E43,E42,E40 and BG72,BG10 for their dresses.  Hair was done with E37,YR24,YR21 and E50 for the bride and then YR24,YR20 & E35 for the flower girl.  I accented the flowers with stickles and added more Ranger Liquid Pearls to the bride's necklace, flower sprays and hair clip.

For my Scor-Pal project I used some great instructions for different purses/bags that you can find HERE!  If you have never visited the Scor-Pal Project website, you are in for a treat--100's of great projects that you can make with your Scor-Pal.  I use my Scor-Pal everyday and work right on top of the mat each day as well---to me it is one of my top 10 must haves :)  I used the same papers for my purse and embellished it in the same manner as my card.  To keep the purse flap closed I used a Basic Grey large magnet which I keep stocked in my craftroom at all times!  This purse would be a great way to give a small gift to your bride or flower girl to thank them.  Very easy to make and so fun too!


Blog Candy for U: Now to thank you for stopping by and always leaving such wonderful comments, I am giving away 3 Magnolia stamps of your choice from Magnolia-licious along with a pad of this fabulous Basic Grey paper.  Just tell me (cuz' I'm curious and nosy and love a great story, lol) --

"What is your favorite Wedding memory--either from your own wedding or someone else's?" 

and I'll share mine with you soon as well (and yes its FUNNY, hee hee, another Suzanne moment for sure).  Leave your answer on this post only by Friday and I'll pick a winner!

Now you need to hop on over to my very talented friend Mindy Baxter's Blog HERE to see what fabulous-ness she has created!

  3. I eloped, so I don't have the same traditional memories that most have. At the courthouse prior to the "ceremony" we sat watching a drug trial as we waiting for the judge. When that ran over, someone found another judge to fix us up and imagine my surprise to find it was the father of a girl I had gone to school with in junior high. Almost 39 years later, I still find the whole thing surreal. But I still am a cheap date...wedding cost only 25 bucks including two cheap gold bands. It's the only piece of jewelry I wear.

    My favorite memory is saying our vows.

  6. Oh my Suzanne, these creations are so delicious, I love the papers, colouring, layout. I just love them both so much. Beautiful.

    My funniest memory is from my own wedding 38 years ago. We were to be married in a civil ceremony New Years Eve at 9.45 am. when we arrived at the Town Hall another wedding party was just leaving and to my surprise it was my cousin, so the whole party just turned around and came to watch our exchange of the vows. The Registrar was dumbfounded as the room wasn't big enough so we upped sticks and moved into the large ballroom. We went from a very quiet wedding to a huge ensamble. A day I'll never forget. It makes me smile even now.

  7. Wow, Suzanne, what a gorgeous project! LOVE-ly!
    DH and I had planned on getting married at the court house, and my pastor found out. He insisted we come to the church, so we did. Just the 3 of us, long story, but it was a very special day!

  9. Suzanne, You are such a busy lady!! I get tired just reading what you have actually done!! Your wedding creations are just so breath-taking!!
    My most favorite wedding memory was walking my oldest daughter down the aisle at her wedding!!

  10. Your card and purse set are absolutely gorgeous, Suzanne! I love the Cappella papers and the wonderful wedding Magnolias! My favorite wedding memory is from my own. DH and I eloped. We left work early on a Friday, got all dressed up and went down to the courthouse to get married. We never thought to bring witnesses so they had to bring in two assistants who just happened to be nearby the judges chambers at the time. Made for a funny wedding snapshot and it still makes us laugh today (23 years later)!

  11. Just stunningly gorgeous creations as always Suzanne!

    My favorite moment was at my own wedding almost 17 years ago. It was when we were having our photos taken. We had gone off in a vintage open topped car and were at a gorgeous arboretum, the sun shone down on us, the birds were singing and for a short while it felt like the world had stopped and it was just me and my husband.
    Wonderful and I can remember it like it was yesterday.

  13. Gorgeous card and purse set. Love the colors you used. The papers are gorgeous.

    My favorite wedding memory is from my wedding 23 years ago...our day went perfectly from start to finish...right down to being the last two people to leave the hall that night. We stayed and partied with our friends and family, my hubby likes to say we got our money's worth.

    Hugs~

  14. Absolutely stunning project!! I so love that little flower girl purse!! Wish my daughter would decide to get married already!!!!
    Probably not my "favorite" moment, but one that I will never forget!! My son was getting married and the Mother of the Bride and I were to light the unity candles, one for her daughter, one for my son. It was right before the ceremony was to start. I hate getting up in front of people anyway, but up we go to the front of the church. We light our candles and go to blow out the candles we used and I blew out my son's candle!!!! I didn't even realize it until we were walking back to our seats and people are whispering and saying you blew it out!! And right there in front of God and everyone I said the "s" word!!! Had to turn around and do it all over again!!! Everyone was laughing, my son was looking at me from the side of the church with "that" look and my future daughter-in-law was in the vestibule wondering what in the world was going on!!! People still talk about it eight years later!!! sigh!!! LOL!!!
    Hugs,
    Teri

  16. What a beautiful card and gift purse. Any bride would count these among the treasures of her wedding.

    My fondest memory of my wedding is when my cousin's twin boys, acted as ushers, were running around trying to find folding chairs for the people to sit in saying "They are coming out of the woods for this wedding!" You can't imagine the love and joy that filled the small church of all that attended.

    ReplyDelete
  17. My favourite wedding memory that I can recall, is when my daughter was in my sister-in-law's wedding. She was 3 years old and looked so proud carrying her basket of flowers with her cousin who was 1 year older than her. They both looked so cute! I guess I remembered that one because we recently looked at some old photos(she is now 16 years old)!

    ReplyDelete
  18. WOW suzanne, I love this creation, so gorgeous! The colors are really pretty, and the gift bag is adorable. LOVE the flowers and spray you used. My favorite wedding memory is from my own wedding. I LOVE weddings, and loved getting married. My favorite memory is seeing my husbands face the moment those big doors at the church opened and he saw me for the first time. He just stared at me, and it was such an amazing feeling. I loved it, and will cherish that memory and feeling for the rest of my life. Our best man told me later that my hubby leaned over and whispered to him "Tell me a joke, or Im gonna cry!" Of course, our best man whispered some totally off-color, crude, joke, so hubby started quietly chuckling as I was walking down the aisle. Too funny, and such a wonderful memory!

  19. Stunning project! The funniest wedding story would be at least from my view point. My mom got mad at me during the reception because I was on the floor with my 8 month old niece. She was afraid I would ruin the dress. I figured I was already married and I didn't care.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Beautiful Suzanne! I just love the colors. So elegant and your coloring is as awlays PERFECT!

    My favorite wedding memory is NOT MINE! Cause I probably will never get married! LOL! Had to say it.. don't enter me in the candy I get enough free stuff from Diana! :)

    HUGS!!!!!

  21. Oh I absolutely love your card and purse - perfect for a wedding. My funniest memory was pulling the waiters on the dance floor with me. My new husband was talking to his friends and I wanted to dance, so I grabbed a waiter. That was 31years ago already.

  23. Hi Suzanne
    Gorgeous project!! I am in awe of you!
    My favorite memory is standing in front of my Mom's rhododendron bush in full bloom as the Justice of Peace married us. There was a great big, fat bumblebee flying around us and all we could do is laugh:-) It was almost louder than the Justice or us saying "I do". I loved sharing my special day with it!

  24. Suzanne, what gorgeous projects! Wow, just love the little purse, and your card is stunning as well! Have a safe trip home in this yucky weather!

  25. Great creations! What I remember are often the little acts of friends. This can be a photoshow (for my niece) or even a song (for my friend) with funny stories about the married couple. Don't know if this is a tradition everywhere. Greetings from Belgium, Annelies

  28. Stunning...I love the colors you have used and all your detail.

    One of my favorite wedding memories was from our daughters wedding. Her husband loved Puma tennis shoes so she wore a white pair under her wedding dress to surprise him. They walked out of church under an arch of golf clubs (he had proposed on a miniature golf course) and when he lifted her to carry her under the golf clubs, here were her Puma tennis shoes! I still smile everytime I see that picture.

  31. My favorite wedding memory was for my sister's wedding when my son refused to wear a pink bow tie --she let him wear a blue one instead. Our weddings are years apart but we have the same wedding date and at the reception she had an anniversary cake for us.

  32. Such a beautiful card and purse! Your colouring is amazing, and all your details are perfect. LOVE it! Love wedding and I think every time a se a beautiful bride comming out the churchdoors it's magic, so simple is that!

  34. WOW! Suzanne. these are just beautiful. I must get this tilda stamp and the paper is just gorgeous. The set is just stunning!
    My daughter got married last year and her wedding dress was very elaborate , A stunning Maggie Sottero design,.It took an hour and a half for me and her maid of honour to help her into... Hoop on,petticoat on, dress on with very long wide train, lace up the back (which took 45 minutes) straighten it out, voila ! beautiful! Next thing... mum I think I need to go to the bathroom...Oh dear my face dropped deep breath and off we went one bride ,one mother of the bride, one maid of honour and 3 bridesmaids all holding up bits of skirt and petticoat very delicately. Luckily the ensuite is large and we could all fit. It definately lightened any tention on the day.This happened 5 times throughout the evenings festivities i'm glad the reception centre also had a very large ladies room!but it certainly was comical while everyone watched 6 of us march in and out of the ladies room that night

  37. Simply stunning. I love the Basic Grey paper. Not sure if this would be at the top of my list of favorites or not but I passed out at the alter of my own wedding. Never seen my dad move so fast.

  38. What beautiful projects. Love the details.
    My favorite memory was from my sister's wedding -- the men dressed in kilts. My son was 8 and was the ringbearer and had to wear a kilt. Poor thing found out that traditionally you don't wear underwear under kilts. He was so worried he had to do that for the wedding and was terrified. It was just too funny.

  39. That is a beautiful purse and card. I love your coloring. My memory of my wedding (well first off, it almost didn't happen because my DH at the time was so sick) is getting married in front of the Christmas Tree at city hall and although the wedding "ceremony" was very touching and pretty, we couldn't keep a straight face because she didn't have our names correct. Me trying not to not break out in laughter was just making him laugh all the more which in turn made me want to laugh all the more. Poor women didn't have a clue why we were cracking up.
    We got married and ate, then went to do our Christmas Shopping. It was such a wonderful day even though my DH was still not feeling well (but said he didn't care if he had to crawl to city hall, we were going to get married).

    my favorite wedding memory :)

    at all my family weddings, at the end of the night we all get together in the middle of the dance floor and play boys II men at the end of the road. where we sing it and just huddle up together and sway back and forth :)

    makes me smile all the time

  42. Suzanne, this set is just gorgeous. I love the soft colors and all the beautiful details. Simply stunning.

    My favorite wedding memory is from my wedding 8 years ago. Right after the ceremony we were outside taking pictures and my daughter hugged both me and my husband and told us that after 9 years together we were finally a real family. She was beaming almost more than I was. My husband told her at that point that we always were a family, now it was just official. I loved the relationship that they shared. I look at my pictures now of the three of us on that day and was amazed at how lucky I was to have the most wonderful husband and amazing daughter and they genuinely loved each other. That's so rare for a step parent relationship. Thanks for helping me think back to that wonderful day.

  44. Beautiful card! I have so many favorite wedding memories, it's hard to chose just one, and since I've been married for 34 years, the memories are embellished by time! But I guess my favorite right now, since I just recently lost my dad, would be walking up the aisle on my dad's arm closer and closer towards the loving, smiling face of my fiance!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Love it. The colors are gorgeous. My FAV memory is when we had our first dinner on our honeymoon in Vail, CO, we were in a beautiful cozy little log cabin restaurant, sitting by the fire. We were sitting in the bay window around 9:00 pm just talking. Wen my hubby was saying how at peace he was to have found "the one", right at that minute the lights went out. The moon was full and we looked out into the valley and watched the snow lightly fall by moonlight. It was AMAZING. Wish I could capture that moment in a bottle somehow and release on days it gets so hectic here... Still together after 33 years...

  46. This stamp is so precious, and my daughter is getting married next month (my first kiddo to get hitched) and I would love to own this! My favorite wedding memory (it is from wedding #3, my LAST!): we got married out of state and had to pack our wedding clothes for the wedding. I FORGOT my shoes! We had to make a quick trip to the mall (in Yuma not a lot of choices) and I found another pair similar. Come that afternoon when dressing for the wedding I discover the shoes were mismatched in size! Once was 2 sizes larger! I ended up walking down the aisle barfoot! lol

  48. Beautiful!! My favorite wedding memory is this: my hubby is from PA and I am from TX. Our wedding truly was like the North meets the South with a huge invisible line you could almost see!! Finally some of his family saw how much fun us Southerners are and 'defected' to the South!! Hubby and I were joking about it just recently with some friends!

  50. Thank you once again for the inspiration to strive for excellence in my projects! Beautiful work!!

    My favourite wedding memory is if my nieces wedding a few years ago. They were to have a very intimate outdoor gathering at a very exquisite 'club' hotel. Only70 people. Well wouldn't you know it, that day it rained so hard it was coming down sideways with the torential rain and winds.... Lisa ( my niece) just kept saying...'have faith that the skies will clear--- we ARE having an outdoor ceremony...' we all believed. And at the very utmost last minute of whether or not to set up the chairs outside, the rain went from a sideways sheet of water, to a completely blue sky in a matter of 30minutes before guests were to arrive. The staff scrambled to set out chairs for the ceremony. It just was the perfect sign of what ' having faith' meant and symbolic I thought of what it means to 'weather the storms' that a marriage sometimes has to endure. It ended up being a beautiful ceremony shared with beautiful people......

  51. These are such gorgeous projects! I like how you did that corner because I recently found that punch on clearance.
    My fav wedding memory is when my aunt & uncle got married & they introduced the bridal party to dance. The floor was really slick & my dad had on those plastic rental shoes, so when he stepped onto the floor, his feet went out from under him like he had stepped on a banana peel in a cartoon. He was flat on his back with his legs straight up in the air! We all laughed so hard-it was ok because he wasn't hurt.

  52. Hey Suzanne! I just wanted to tell you my friend Dianne was at your Copic class in MI on Saturday & RAVED about you -- Apparently I *must* meet you some day, lol!! I had no idea you were doing these classes on your own, apart from Copic. Good for you girl!

    Wedding memory -- well we just had our 17th wedding anniversary last month -- I guess the memorable part for me was my memory -- or lack of. I am not in any way religious -- but that Our Father prayer was part of our (very short) ceremony. I practiced & practiced & practiced all week before the wedding. I had it!! I could say the whole thing!! Too bad it came up so quickly in the ceremony, I didn't have time to think. I wanted to yell "Wait!! I need to start over! From the top!" I ended up just turning my head away from everyone so no one could see that I was not saying anything. Yep you can even see it in the video. Haaahahaaa.....never did learn that prayer again, I just giggle when I hear it now!

  53. I forgot to tell you my fave wedding memory. My sister just got married last year and my daughter was her flower girl. Well, she went from a 9 yr old to a 16 yr old in no time. My daughter never looked so beautiful in all my life. I teared up when I saw her. That is something I KNOW I will never forget!

  55. Wow what BEAUTIES you created, Suzanne! Simply FABULOUS from the design to the coloring to the BG DP! Well, I am technically still a newlywed (just hit a year and 8 months of wedded bliss) and I have 2 things that I remembered from our special day. We were getting married in the courthouse and we were told that our friends and family could take as many pictures as we wanted in the private rooms, but not in the hallways and common areas due to others being there for criminal proceedings, etc. If pictures were taken in those areas, they would take our cameras away from us. As we were going to the judge's suite to be married, one of our friends started taking pictures of us in the hall and the whole bunch of us shrieked NO DON'T! And then after the stunned silence, we cracked up laughing because it scared the bejesus outta him! When we looked at pictures afterward, I saw my husband's Hindu friends standing behind us with hands raised over our heads - it's a way of bestowing a blessing, which I didn't even know they did at the time! Those pictures still make me teary eyed! Great memories!

  56. Beautiful wedding set.

    My favorite wedding memory is from my daughter's wedding. On of the 2 ringbearers was fasinated by lights and stopped at the end of each and every pew to touch and admire the toille covered lights. When he was almost to the front of the church, he tripped and fell down. He stole the show.

  57. Suzanne, Your card and purse were beautiful! Love your work!!!
    My whole family (over 20 people went) from Raleigh and Wake Forest, NC to Gatlinburg, TN for our wedding.
    My Cherished moment is we got married in a Little Log Chapel in Gatlinburg, TN and it snowed all day. It was just enough to make everything beautiful and white but we were not stranded. : )
    The funniest thing is my parents insisted on my fiancé and me, and my sister and her boyfriend, stay in a hotel room with them. (no hanky panky before I had a ring). They found a room with 3 double beds. My sister and me in 1 My parents in 1 bed and My fiancé and my sister boyfriend in another LOL! When we woke up the next morning my dad told us that there would be no getting married today that we were snowed in and could not get to the Chapel! I believed him at first. Needles to say I still laugh about that 18 years later. : )

  58. Absolutely gorgeous, stunning, fabulous...I could go on and on! This is so inspiring...I definitely need to make some. My favorite memory at my wedding was when my 3 year old ring-bearer nephew was twirling the ring pillow by the string while we were in the middle of prayer and the entire pillow went flying. He's grabbing his daddy's leg who was a groomsman saying...Daddy, daddy, I broke it, I broke it and it went flying. Good thing we didn't have the real rings on the pillow, LOL!

  59. As usual your card and purse are just fabulous!
    Lets see, my favourite wedding memory? There are so many, my family never does anything normally, there has to be a performance you see, but I think it has to be the fact that my DIL cut his hair for the wedding out of respect for my husband. You see, my SIL is a rocker and my DH very conservative (nearly gave him a heart attack when DD brought this vision home with hair up to his butt! LOL)

  60. Hi Suzanne,

    Your card and the purse are stunning! I love the wedding stamp, its so adorable. The purse is so delicate and pretty that any bride or flower girl would love to have it as a keepsake.

    My favorite wedding moment? Well this is my most memorable wedding reception moment, that is for sure. For our reception we purchased champagne for each table so that everyone could celebrate with us with a champagne toast. So before our best man gave his toast, he invited everyone to join us in a champagne toast with a count down to open the bottles. As each table opened the bottles from the ice buckets and as corks popped, champagne sprayed all over everyone at the hall! The caterers had forgotten to put the champagne on ice and left the ice buckets empty with just warm champagne bottles inside!!! If Champagne is not chilled, it literally explodes out of the bottle when it is opened and all of our dear guests got drenched.

    To make matters worse, one of the exploding champagne corks broke a light fixture, my elderly dear great aunt was soaking wet and my Mother was horrified. LOL

    Needless to say, each Thank You note I sent included an apology!

    *Hugs*
    ~Andrea

  62. Love, love, love the card and bag! Soooo beautiful!

    My favorite memory is from my own wedding, although our daughter's wedding was very special, too! Anyway, I was soooo nervous all day on my wedding day. In the church's dressing room I had to stick Kleenex under my arms to absorb my excessive perspiration. I did remember to take them out right before I was to go down the aisle, still a nervous mess. But then, my dad held out his arm for mine, and my fears just seemed to melt away. Walking down the aisle with him, I felt so secure and safe. The rest of the ceremony was like a beautiful dream for me. :^)

  65. Beautiful Wedding Projects!! Love the soft colors and your coloring is perfect as always. You have embellished this just right too!!

    My Wedding had a lot of memorable moments...I guess one is when my brother walked me down the aisle because my father is no longer with us. He is the baby of the family, six years younger than me. He was so proud and made a wisecrack to my husband when he handed me off. It was typical of him!!

  67. wow these are just gorgeous Suzanne, adore them. My favourite wedding memory?? My whole day was perfect after a series of disasters in the weeks leading up to it. I loved my sister's first dance with her hubby- they sang Aerosmith's "Don't wanna miss a thing" to each other and had us all in tears x

  69. Hello there Suzanne - So glad to hear you had a great weekend and successful workshops! Your projects are beautiful, as usual! Just love the color combination and the papers are gorgeous. I picked up another tip today, hadn't thought about using a border punch to create a corner bracket. Have to try it! I guess my favorite and funniest wedding experience would have to be our own. We drove to Vegas with another couple and went to the JP. (Hubby's very country and old fashioned, wouldn't dream of anything "fancy"). Anyway we both must have been very nervous and when hubby was asked to repeat the vows the JP had to repeat himself 3 times and by then I had the giggles, which quickly spread to everyone and we barely got through the ceremony we were all laughing so hard. I'm sure the JP thought "I'm sure this marriage is gonna last." But 47 years later here we are....still laughing it up!!! :o) Now I'm waiting to hear yours!! Hugs to you, Sharon :o)

  70. Very Elegent card..
    My memory was. We had left after the reception and I told Richard where the laggage was and I had some things hanging in the closet. When we got to where the hotel and he took very thing in, I ask him where was the things that I had in the closet was and he said what things? So we had no Top and shirts but it was fun shopping.

  71. Suzanne, your wedding purse and card are amazing! Thank you for all the fun stories above. I had a ball reading most of them. I have so many wonderful wedding memories...first laugh came when a beautifully dressed woman came into the restroom my bridal party was using and exclaimed to me "you're not Sheila". After a bit of hysteria she produced a wedding invite from her purse and it was confirmed...she was a week early! Then came the beautiful ceremony with my handsome hubby at my side, we couldn't help but giggle as the priest recited our vows and we watched droplets of perspiration run down his bald head and off his earlobes like crystal earrings...so much for a July wedding in a church with no a.c. Recently my groom of 36 years shared just how much fun it was flying to my hometown on his first plane ride with precious cargo in tote, my wedding gown. He beamed as he told me how special they treat a young guy carrying a wedding gown! Thanks for the trip down memory lane :-)

  72. Gorgeous creations Suzanne, love every bit of them, colouring is fab and attention to detail amazing.
    My favourite part of my wedding (funniest too) was when I walked through a cobbled archway to the reception and my garter had slipped down to my ankle and I thought for one horrible second it was my knickers!
    Love Nicola xxx

  73. Oh dear......"our big day" was 56 years ago this coming August. Sorry to say, it was too long ago to remember the details other than...we left the reception in the basement of the church and "ran away" from the party that was being held after at another hall. I guess we were anxious to begin married life! (or something like that. LOL) The memory everyone else at the wedding talks about is that my Grandparents on my Father's side had an altercation on the way home after the party. My Grandfather got a little "tipsy" (he NEVER drank....until that party) and in the car on the way home he yanked my Grandmother's hat off her head and put his fist thru it and thru it out the window, exclaiming....(I HATE THAT HAT!) Grandma was mad at him for a very long time!!!! He always claimed he didn't remember a thing. gggggg (They were married 69years when he passed.)

  74. Oh gosh Suzanne! I think this projects glows! Beautiful!
    My favorite wedding memory is a very recent one. I went to a very large birthday party...and it turned out out to be a surprise wedding. It was quite possibly the most fun wedding I've ever been to!
    I so happy you and the girls had fun last weekend. I would have loved to have been there. :)

  76. Beautiful projects; thanks for sharing. Thanks for the blog candy too--what a treat! My favorite wedding moment was when my mom said to my new husband "you have an awesome responsibility" (because he was taking on a wife and already had 2 kids to support)
    ---not "welcome to the family" "glad to have you in the family". He has kidded her about it for years. Jo4Him

  79. I love this card - so dreamy. I really don't have a wedding story per say. Though when one of our daughters were married, my DH had a kidney stone and still went through with giving the bride away, the father/daughter dance , etc. What a trooper. And even though he was in alot of pain, he loved every moment of it.

  80. Love your wedding card and purse! I am especially looking for ideas to see what I can make for my son's upcoming first wedding. My favorite wedding memory involves this same son some 36 years ago when he was a ring bearer and my niece was the flower girl for my sister-in-law's wedding. They were so cute all dressed up.

  81. What a gorgeous card and purse! That is such a sweet image.

    My favorite wedding memory is from my wedding. Our then 2 year old niece was a flower girl and we were worried that she would get scared when it came down the isle. Nope. She was so excited, she all put pulled our 6 year old nephew, the ring bearer, down the isle. Everyone was laughing and it was such a nice way to start things off!
