Fun Weekend

 I had a really fun weekend and am playing catch up today!   My sister is getting married at the end of September and my niece, my mom and I hosted a wedding shower for her!  Wonderful afternoon full of LOVE!  We are all so happy for her!

I was in charge of favors - and here's what I made -

The bags that I used are the Petite Cafe' Gift Bags in the Holiday Catalog.  What I didn't realize til I opened the first bag was that they are lined on the inside - so they are perfect for food gifts - like caramel corn, cookies, - in other words, they are food safe!!

The toppers were made with tea lace doilies, designer series paper and the scallop circle and circle punches.  The small flower was also a punch - from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, and finished off with a little "bling" - a rhinestone.  The "for you" stamp is from a hostess set called Hello There. 

Next, I made a Project Life by Stampin' Up! album for my sister.  I decorated the album cover with some ribbon and a tag -

 I included pocket pages and a set of Love Story card collection.  We had all the guests at the shower write a message on a card that will go into the book, along with lots of pictures that were taken.

And of course, she can keep adding photos - from their wedding day, and beyond!  This makes a great gift!!

Please contact me if you have any questions on the products used on these projects!  And come back tomorrow to see the other gift I gave!

Here are a few other photos from the day -

And one of the things I loved was getting to spend the day with my "big girls" as I affectionately call them!  Miss them and am always so happy to spend time with them!   Faith wasn't able to attend - she plays volleyball and had a game - we missed her!

On Sunday, I helped Anna move into a new apartment! She started a new job a few weeks ago but couldn't get into her apartment until yesterday - so we got her somewhat settled and moved in - she has an adorable apartment!!!

Today my daughter Sarah is moving to a new apartment! She has some friends helping her but I will be helping her get settled also!  Phew - never a dull moment with us, I guess!!!

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy this beautiful day!
