Our theme this week

at the The Pixie Cottage is FAMILY...

and currently in my life that has WEDDING written all over it.

You may remember this November the Saturday following

Thanksgiving my mommy is getting married to Mr. Bill.

So neat to witness unexpected true love in life after 60.

I am continually in awe of how my mom

and Mr. Bill live life to its fullest,

they are both so young at heart.

I want to be like her!

My creation this week ...


follows both the family theme and our current sketch by
Cindy Haffner ...


As always you have a choice at
The Pixie Cottage
...

Create a project based on the theme, the sketch, or a combination of the two!

Upload your NEW creation to
The Pixie Cottage Challenge #34

for a chance to win fabulous Pixie Cottage Stamps !

CRAFTY CREATIONS White Plus One


A CRAFTY LITTLE PLACE anything goes


We turned the end of our FAMILY Mexican vacation into a renewal of vows/ incredible family photo shoot. It was truly a case of "life imitating art"


check out the veil...


I love how the wind was so dynamic in arranging it...


little did I know when I drew the wedding collection this spring
that I would get to portray the bride this August.



these are a few of my favorite prints now adorning our walls; poster size...


So Happy TOGETHER!



Forever & Ever....Amen!



Take time to enjoy the little things in life, fore it is those that mean the most!

  3. You and the family are so beautiful. What a beautiful card as well. The use of beads for the headpiece was the perfect touch.
