I am back from my two-week hiatus, and I am feeling a little bit overwhelmed! Just because I’ve been gone doesn’t mean I have actually been sitting idle. Last weekend my husband and I went back to Ohio for my first cousin‘s 50th wedding anniversary. His children gave him and his wife an awesome party in Akron. It was great to see cousins and friends that I haven’t seen in YEARS, and that is no exaggeration! I even had the opportunity to meet for the first time some of my cousins’ children . The sad part about that is these “children” now have children of their own that are entering college. Jeesh! I am getting old!
I may have mentioned in an earlier post that I was a flower girl in this cousin’s wedding when I was 6-years-old. They had their old wedding album there and I managed to take a photo of a photo of their bridal party. I know who a few of the people are in the photo, but not everyone. I also didn’t realize that movie cameras were available to the general population in 1963 and movies of their wedding were done. Their children had the movie converted to dvd and I got to see myself in action as a 6-year-old and my older sister when she was 8. I must say we were two cute kids. LOL! Anyway, here’s a shot of the wedding party.
The card I am sharing with you today is a Christmas card I made for an upcoming class I will be doing. I love these new Thinlits Card Dies. They are…to DIE for! LOL! I used the Label Card Thinlits Die. There is also a Circle Card Thinlits Die that makes a flip card as well. Its item number is 133480.
