Wedding Shower

I have been a little busy as of late with family- here is one thing I have been up to:



and the inside:


  Stamps are the umbrella die are Paper Smooches. I gave in and purchased a MISTI- best tool ever.  I had made my own with a CD case, it worked, but nothing like the real thing!  Made stamping multiples a breeze!  I set it up so I could stamp the front on the Lt and the inside on the Rt- really smooth!
  The cardstock is Pool Party from SU, silver and white GP.  The cloud embossing folder is SU.

We attended an engagement party in N.J., and held one here in Illinois as well. Here is our 'Meet the Parents' photo:


  We had a wonderful time at both parties!

 My back has calmed down a bit- off steroids now but still on muscle relaxants and in PT.  I was advised to quit working, as I sit all day, and work on strengthening my core.  Others with back issues can probably relate- the more the back hurts, the less you are wanting to do- to avoid hurting yourself......  So, I will work shortened shifts thru the end of the month, then I will be home.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sending wishes to the happy couple. Our last son not married just got engaged to. Love the invites and I love my MIST too. It can't be beat for stamping multiples/ Makes it so much easier. Hope your back improves soon. I also reduced my work hours this month and I'll be leaving my job as soon as the twins are born. I'm just working two days a week right now. Have a wonderful weekend. Rest up and feel better. Hugs to you.

That must have been such a fun time from the looks of the photo. Cute invites and I'm sure everything will go well from this point on with the wedding.

I love my Misti. Great new tool.

What a fun time! Your family picture is perfect. The invites turned out great. I am glad to hear you like the Misti, as I was looking at that the other day.
