Amanda's bridal shower

We will be giving my niece a bridal shower in August. So my job was to come up with
the invitation, which is right up my alley. I so enjoyed putting it all together with color and texture and yes a little bling too!

I stamped most of it, embossed it with texture and designed the way it opened and closed, which was a little tricky, taking me a couple of evenings to figure out.

The best part of it all was having my sister, the mother of the bride, my sister n' law who is helping give the shower and my other niece come over, finish stampin', glue and assemble with embellishments and ribbon, also deorating the envelope.
We all agreed it was a great afternoon, munching on salami & cheese, sipping on wine, looking through old photo books to gather photos and reminencing about when the kids were small, and "Where did the time go?"
  They are all grown up and starting their own lives.

Relish every step of the way you spend with your children, it goes by so quickly, make every moment count and memorable,
 even the smallest ones can be the precious ones.
When they are holding our hands we can protect them and guard them from being hurt, give them a good foundation of wrong & right by being good examples to them.
Hopefully they will remember all that is taught them, and how to handle all situations in a postitive way even when someone might hurt their feelings or    
not agree with them.   
Being kind to others, and reaching out to someone that might be in need.

Here is the finished invite with the envelope
