wedding and wrapping

It just hit me today that my baby sis is really getting married. And not because I am frantically running around town trying to get ready for it, but because she's my little "blondie blonde"-she's not old enough to get married!! Tonight is her Wedding dinner here. And tomorrow night her husband, who is 6"11" by the way, has a basketball game we are all going to. Then Saturday is the big day!! Aaaahhh!! Collin is at the mall picking me out a dress to wear right now, he had 2 choices. All black should be easy right?

I never get into wrapping but how could I resist when American Crafts has all this fun coordinating wrapping paper supplies.

I made some really simple tags too.


These tags are from Every Jot and Tittle at Etsy.

Merry Christmas!

yay for the ave-meister. i knew as soon as she started saying Ham, Em was soon to follow. i love that tag of myself, does that mean you drew me? if so, i am doing a little dance in my rolly-chair because i know it will be stellar-helen-keller!

p.s.
stop being so creative, you're making me feel bad.

Wow! They didn't waist any time getting married. Congats and have a great time. Weddings are always so fun especially when it's your sister.

Collin is picking out your dress, WoW my husband would never do that. How do you have time to do all these pages and wrap like that. I only wish I had time to get out of 2006.

It looks like a great place for a wedding dinner. I've been there before (but for nothing wedding related).

Where on Earth did you find American Craft wrapping paper?!?! I would have LOVED that stuff!!! But I didn't see anything that cool in our lss, so I just went to Target and bought some really cute paper. It was with the Christmas paper, but not Christmas colors. LOVED that, so I bought it. Totally looks like scrapbooker paper.

Good luck getting everything done before the wedding. Those are always stressful on the entire family.

And... you get Collin to shop for you! Congrats on that AWESOME MAN!

I hope all goes well on the big wedding day. I can't wait to hear about it. Also you make everything so cute. I can hardly wrap a present and get it all cover with wrapping paper. I always cut the paper too short. You have many wonderful talents that I admire.

KTluv said...

That is an absolutely gorgeous dress. I love it!!! Congratulations to her!

You are so brave to let your hubby pick out your dress. I could not even imagine!

Reina said...

I can't believe you can get the hubby to shop for you! Lucky you! I don't know if I would even trust Mike to pick clothes for me.

Hayley,
I got the wrapping paper from American Crafts because they're local here in Orem. But they had it at my LSS or I heard you can get it at Expedex.

The solid red and green paper with the pattern was from the grocery store! I was excited to see something besides bears dressed as Santa Claus.
Merry Christmas!

My DH bought me a copy of CK for my stocking. Congrats on making the COVER! I read your story on the website a couple of months ago. I can't imagine how excited you must be to make SBOTY. Kudos!
