So Why Do I Never Remember to Take Pictures?
My dear friend Bonnie has kindly offered to give BD#2 a bridal shower, so yesterday she came over to make invitations. She has a Cricut with a paper doll cartridge. I haven't ever used a Cricut before, and it was a blast (I really think I have to have one of these gizmos!) And of course, I have enough stamps, ink, embossing powders, paper and ribbon to start a store. Truly a match made in heaven!
We had the best time making little bride paper dolls, embossing and stamping. It was very fussy, and a ton of work (we commented several times that we hope BD#2 knows how much we love her - we wouldn't go to all that trouble for just anyone!) but we laughed and joked and carried on, and basically had a wonderful time. She made little brides until her fingers stuck together (glad it wasn't super glue). I stamped and embossed and printed until I had writer's cramp. The afternoon was over all too soon. Bonnie took them home so her girls, who are 9 and 11, could help glue the little brides onto the invitations. I sent the ribbon home with her, since we didn't quite get to that part.
These little invites are going to be so cute!
We had such a great time! Why didn't I think to take pictures?
