More Milestones :)

This past few weeks have been just a blur with so much going on!!  Milestone after milestones :)  My oldest daughter just turned 30 a week ago and now my baby just turned 21!!  Wow...where did the time go???

Isn't it funny the older you get, the faster the time flies by???  So my advise to all your younger ones, enjoy each day to the fullest as it goes by so quickly.  Enjoy each of those precious little things that happen in your children's lives on a daily basis.

So here are a few shots of Carissa on her 21st :)  Fortunately she is a very responsible girl so you won't see any hammered shots lol.

Her first drink ~ well being legal lol

Her signature shot....she loves the thumbs up.  The lily's are from a very special friend of hers, which are her favorites :)
Carissa with a few of her girlfriends....they are all now 21!  Wow.....I remember driving them all over the place.  See...I told you!!  lol

Busy working on wedding stuff...... 37 days!!!!

Today's quote:  "You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do. "

Have a wonderful rest of the week.......looking forward to the weekend!!

Bridal Shower

Well hello :)  I've been so busy getting things done for Carissa's wedding but wanted to stop by and show you just a few fun pictures that we took today at her bridal shower :)  So sit back and have a cup of coffee and enjoy :)

My first ever attempt of using fondant.  Not too bad I guess and Carissa and everyone loved it :) 

Some of our decorations at a cabana we rented out.  It was perfect for all the ladies :)
Our food table....well this is before we put any food on it but still lol.  A flower arrangement of Carissa's 2 favorite flowers.  Orange lily's and yellow roses.
Wish I would have had a way to diplay these better but these were my lollipop cakes :)  Big hit that's for sure lol.
Our beautiful Bride to Be in front of her sign I made for her today.
Carissa with her big sister.  There are 9 years difference between them.
These were our 4 brides.  Not bad huh for toilet paper wedding dresses :)  These ladies were creative that's for sure.
My sweet baby girl with me and her soon to be MIL.  She's a very sweet lady who loves Carissa very much and is very excited to have her as a DIL.

Well that is it for a busy week ahead of me between work, Carissa turning 21 on Tuesday and then finishing up yet more wedding items.  41 days and counting and I'll be able to get back to all my projects lol.

Have a wonderful week!!!  Happy Crafting :)

7 Weeks and counting :)

Well Hello :)

I promised a few of you that I would post a little more often to keep you up to date as to what I've been up to regarding the wedding.  Oh I am looking forward to having all this done so I can get back to my other projects :)  It is all so worth it though.

So I had posted a sneak peek on what the table centerpieces would be like so this gives you a better idea.  They will all be filled with 3 different color of water beads on the tables but you can see the finished product.

So all the invitations have gone out, the final details are being confirmed and starting next Sunday's the fun festivities will start.  Stay tuned for pictures of her Bridal Shower :)  Here is the mock invitations that went out.  They turned out very cute :)

Have a fantastic weekend!!  Happy Crafting!!
