Challenge #161 - WEDDINGS!!!

For our challenge this time we are asking you to celebrate 


Our dear Poobah Electra has a wedding at the end of July - 
her darling daughter's and so we're celebrating too!
So create with the theme of weddings 
and then share your project with us!

Deena here:  So excited that Electra's daughter is getting married ...and this challenge also worked out perfect for my husband's brother's wedding last weekend....I needed a card for this occasion and I thought this one turned out perfect for them....they had a little backyard wedding here last weekend, but are having a big celebration with her family in Morrocco in October...

Electra here.  Yes, it's true, my baby girl is getting married!  And I get to be the mother of the bride.
Hah!  I even bought a dress. And shoes.  And new underwear.  :-)

Since the big day is yet to come, I've chosen to scrapbook a couple of the daughter and her fiance's engagement photos.  I know, not particularly wedding-y, but appropriate, nonetheless.

Jana here. Congratulations to Electra and her daughter. Many happy years to them all.
The last wedding I went to was last summer. My adorable nephew got married. For this challenge, I made the happy newlyweds a pillow to match the quilt I made them for their wedding. 

and here's the quilt:

Rosemary here and I love weddings, it is a joy to see young ones (and older ones too) embarking on a great adventure.  I'm so happy for Electra's daughter and wish her a lifetime of love and happiness, as well as the determination to get through the challenges of marriage - it isn't all .   I made table tents for her reception, using my Cricut, cardstock, and stamps!  (and of course, the feather sparkles - have to have that bling)

I also used the colors (a shimmery peacock blue) as the accent for the set of thank you cards I made for her.
