A Celebration of love...

The theme at The Pixie Cottage
for an extended two week challenge is "Party/ Celebration"
I applied my Ornament Tutorial
to create a very special keepsake
honoring the celebration of "Love"
at my mom's wedding, less than a month ago, to Mr.Bill
it was followed by a party full of dancing!

To hang on their first Merry Tree together...
