May I Have This Dance?

How many of you just sang, "For the Rest of My Life"?

Don't you just love Cinderella and the

Fairy Tales that all have the lovely young lady

finding her Prince Charming?

"I DO"

and I hope I've captured that in my latest series

From the set, also available ala carte, I used the image

Above is my completed project showcased in the 20th challenge at
The Pixie Cottage

I have also sent the pair twirling into a few other challenges:

Paperplay - Wedding Celebrations
Clearly I Stamp - Flowers
Simple Doodles - Anything But A Card
Crazy Challenge - It's A Girl Thing
Crafts and Me - Anything But A Card

Treasured Scrapbooking Altered Composition Book

This poor journal was begging to be altered!

Coupled with this wonderful sketch...

by Bev Rochester of All the Things I Love

It begins to transform into something pretty and functional!

The ultimate place to compile....The "I Do"

"to do"
If you've been in a wedding or have planned one

you know there are bound to be lists!

Having them all in one Artishtic spot

is my gift to (my) mommy!

She and Mr.Bill are getting married in St.Louis

the Saturday following Thanksgiving.

They met dancing, and have continued

sailing around dance floors as their hearts have intertwined!

My mom had quite the productive Friday last week...
she found her dress~ a beautiful Burgundy color, ordered the cakes,
picked out coordinating fabric,
wrote a sweet 'save the date letter',
spoke with the caterers...to name a few.
Surely, if she had this journal

it would be full of check marks!

Hopefully, there are still LISTS to be made...

it'll be en route to Mommy soon!
