Sharing From the Heart blog hop

Welcome to the Sharing From The Heart blog hop! If you came here from Michelle Powell's blog, you are on the right path. For August we had a choice of new product, August stamp of the month, or school. I chose to use new product with the hopes of getting more done, but with my daughter's wedding this weekend, I just ran out of time!
I chose to use the beautiful elemental paper and the lace stamp from the Sweet Moments stamp set for this birthday card for my sister.

Elemental paper pack
CS: kraft, pacifica, colonial white
Ink: Pacifica
SS: Sweet Moments, Friendship alphabet -small
and Homestead alphabet - retired
Card recipe - Medallion from Wishes
chipboard 2 - unknown

Since Lori Miller is feeling a bit under the weather, go ahead on hop on over to Lela's blog and look at beautiful creation. Thank you so much for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!

The Big Day

Well, today is the big day - our little girl is getting married! We have known this day was coming for a while now, but time just seems to fly by. This is the reason I haven't gotten much done this summer, other than wedding stuff and the reason that I haven't posted in a while - there is just so much to do in planning a wedding and everything else just takes second place. It has been a fun process and a stressful one, too, but I wouldn't trade anything for the hours that Abby and I have spent planning out the details, making decorations, and just preparing for this big day in her life. It has all been worth it, and in the end we get a wonderful new member to the family. Shawn is a wonderful young man with a beautiful heart and we could not have asked for anyone better. I wish for them to have a long and happy life together, filled with beautiful memories! Congratulations you two and we love you!
