Wedding Card

Whew. It has been a fun filled week but I am ready for things to return to a slower pace. I'm definitely a "homebody" and not keen on continuous activity...although I do make exceptions! Thursday night we attended an "Aurora Scholars" recognition ceremony. There are 57,000 students in the Aurora Public Schools (I'm still trying to wrap my mind around that number!) and 297 of them were honored in this ceremony for being exceptional. Matthew was one of those 297, and so was my friend Donna's daughter. Friday Scott was off for most of the day and we caught up on some household chores before heading out to Bluff Lake for a walk with the girls. (Really, it should be called Bluff Pond...) That evening we went to a beautiful wedding. Saturday was tea with a precious friend in the morning and then a short visit with Kyle. In the afternoon the girls and I attended a bridal shower and last night was filled with good, old fashioned family game time and belly aching laughter. After church today, Jay and his grandmother came for lunch and this evening Scott and I went to some friends' home for dessert (which I avoided...I'll write about that in another post...) and a great visit. Now I'm ready to head for bed so I can get up early and get caught up on all of the housework that I let slide this weekend.
Marie with a :-)

This tri-fold card uses Close To My Heart paper and various stamps. I'm disappointed the photo of the front came out so poorly but you can tell the colors from the second photo.

The girls love it when we walk at Bluff Lake...and Scott and I love hearing their animated conversations as they stroll along behind us. I did persuade them to pose for a picture :-)

Your wedding card is so pretty, Marie! That paper pack is one of my all-time favorites, and it looks so elegant here. Your image choices are wonderful, the personalization is always a winner, and I really like the tri-fold effect. Great job!

Sounds like you had a non-stop weekend! A fun one though. ;) Kudos to your son for being one of those honored students -- you must be very proud! Your walk sounds so relaxing and a great family time. And your daughters look so cute (and they did a great job posing for you). tfs
