Wedding Love and Scottish Family

Whew! Still recovering from the weekend...and on top of that a lovely cold to go along with it! We celebrated the wedding of two amazing people over the weekend and enjoyed all of the festivities to go along with it! It was a family wedding where was a Bridesmaid, my husband was an usher, and Grandparents were involved during the ceremony. So I tried to lay out a detailed schedule (following the bride's equally detailed schedule to help us get through the day with happy kids and yet get everyone where they needed to be on time. Only hiccup was I never planned to wake up the day of the wedding to a feverish little girl. She was really hot and barely moving, so I had to run out and get motrin. On top of that she decided to throw up on me a little in the elevator as the doors opened and there was someone standing there (and someone in the elevator with me). So plans were changed up and my husband was exhausted after the day, but we made it through and had fun for most of it (at least when the medicine was keeping the fever down!). Now apparently we are realizing that there is some sort of 24 hour bug going around because my son is experiencing the same thing today. So we are trying to get everyone healthy (including myself with this lovely cold).

So this is the card I made for the bride and groom for the wedding. It was also done for the Paper Crafts July Gallery Challenge: The Boys of Summer, Matt, Brad, and Chip (in other words use matting, brads, and/or chipboard on your card). I ended up incorporating all of the "boys" on my card! The shimmer letters were stuck on white cardstock and cut out (which is my matting portion). They were arranged on a heart chipboard piece that I covered with Raspberry Cream paper from the Bittersweet Collection by Basic Grey. All of that was then adhered to a Basic Black strip that I adhered lace to underneath. Then I added gold brads around my heart...this part I am not so sure looks right, but oh well!

So as I promised, I thought I would share a few pics from our weekend. It was my husband's close cousin that got married. She married a lovely gentleman that was born and grew up in Scotland. So he and most of the groomsmen (one of them was from England and apparently they don't wear kilts) wore kilts. Since my husband and his brother were Ushers, they decided to rent some kilts too. Then since my husband was going to wear a kilt, my son wanted to as well. So can I just tell you that I really love the Scottish kilts...they looked so handsome and cute! I started crying when I first saw my son! And my husband looked pretty good in his too! And in case you were wondering, he started off "untraditional" in nature, but at the reception switched to "traditional"!

So this is me with hair and makeup done! Definitely don't look like this everyday!

How cuuuuttttteee is this?

My cutie in a moment of low fever...she LOVED the dance floor even though she was sick!

Our little Scottish family! Well not so much, but it was fun dressing up like one! BTW why am I standing so funny?

There are too many card layout today. I think I almost see all kinds of layouts but your card is so different. Your card has a very unusual design. I like it. I also love the entire picture that you post.
