Back from the weekend!

So, the wedding is over, the book has been given. Now, I just hope she liked it! It was a very beautiful wedding and a great reception. Only wish I could have stayed longer to dance it up a bit more. But had to get home to the kids and pick them up from grandma's house. I haven't done too much scrappin since the wedding because I needed a break from the paper!! It wasn't calling too me--yep, I am crazy--I need a calling from the paper in order to scrap or some other kind of motivation like a contest! But here is what I did do....

Forgot to post this...this is the wedding card that I made to go with the album. And, I decked up the enveloped, too. The card was just a 8 X 8 sheet of card stock that I folded in half. The flower was a silk rose bud that I tore apart to just be left with petals and I added some stickles to it! The envelope was just a standard 4 1/2 x 9 1/4 security enveloped that I just added the card stock too, and printed their names on vellum. Added some burgundy ribbon going down the sides and made the nice pretty gold bow ( thanks to my mom for teaching me many years ago how to make bows when she worked in a flower shop). I forgot to take a pic of the back of the enveloped, but what I did was along the flap I cut a 2 inch strip pf burgundy cardstock, and I used my lace border punch on it to make it pretty!

Last thing here was the weekly sketch from last week on Creative Scrappers forum. They always have great sketches there! It's nothing fabulous I did but, it was another sketch that helped get another LO done from the zoo trip!

Here's the sketch...

Here's my take.....
Oh, one more thing, this just in, if you love sketches make sure you stop in to check this out! Don't know about the rest of you, but I'm always looking for new inspiration!

Hey gf! I am so glad the wedding went well. I just know she will absolutely love the board book! You rocked it out gf!

Lovin' the cards you did. That flourish is just so beautiful! I love that one!

The LO rocks usual! I too just love coming to your blog. It is so inspiring and one that I definitely keep a check on! Keep up all the great work.

And you know me...I gotta go and check out the sketch thing too! Love me some sketches!

Oh, and I feel ya. I have to have the scrappy supplies calling my name too. If I try to scrap beforehand, it always ends up yuck. I just have to be in the mood. So I know where you are coming from. Hope your week is going great!!!
