Our Wedding!

Happy Wednesday everyone!!

I hope that this week is going well for you. So far mine has been pretty good. Although I did have a monster headache yesterday and I was really tired again. I think it is the weather. Izzy was super tired yesterday too and took like a 3 hour nap! It was crazy! It was really chilly yesterday and it misted pretty much the whole afternoon. Simply one of those days that you want to curl up under a blanket and sleep! LOL!

Well today I am glad to say I am headache free and I get to babysit Melaina!! Yay!!! I am so excited! I know that Izzy is really looking forward to it. She keeps caring around the shoes that we are giving to Melaina and saying, "Lainy shoes, Lainy shoes." It is really sweet!

So, today is Wednesday which means it is Watchadoin' Wednesday time over at Storage Units, Ink and More!!! And by today's title you can tell that my project is going to be wedding themed! But don't worry I am not going to be showing you old pictures of Jason's and my wedding. Nope I am going to show you a treat box/place card holder for a wedding or shower. Which just so happens to be this week's challenge. All the deets for this week's challenge can be found here. And when I saw this week's Try a New Technique Challenge over at SCS I knew that I had the perfect little favor idea!

So what do you think? I actually cut off the rounded top so I could insert name tags, but I really like the concept. And of course I have always love the idea of a Tiffany Blue and chocolate brown themed wedding. Oh so yummy! So I started this box by first printing off the template found over on SCS on white copy paper and cutting it out. I then attached it to my piece of brown and blue Core'dintations Chocolate Box paper with low tack tape, traced around it and cut it out. I then scored all my folds and taped it together. Next I cut out a piece of the same Core'dinations card stock and adhered a piece of Basic Grey Urban Prairie to the middle and created my belly band. I then tied a white grossgrain ribbon around the box and attached my sentiment tag. The sentiment tag was created by stamping "Our Wedding" from Goin' To the Chapel by Storage Units, Ink and More on white card stock with chocolate chip ink, cutting it out along with some more Core'dinations card stock and placing a silver eyelet at the top. For the place card itself, I printed off my couple's names on white card stock using a fancy font and adhered it to the blue side of the Core'dinations paper and then another piece of the brown side. I stamped on the rings also from the Goin' To the Chapel set in chocolate brown and created a little frame around the edges. To complete the favor, I filled it up with silver wrapped chocolate kisses and attached my card with two silver swirls! I think this would make a really elegant little table setting!

Now it is time to check out the rest of the DT's awesome creations! They will be sure to amaze you! And don't forget we would love you to play along too! When uploading your creation to SCS or PCP just be sure to type in the keyword SUINKWWC28 so that we can all view your wonderful creations.

Now for my Izzy story. Another quick one. As I mentioned yesterday my lovely daughter just adores wearing Mommy's shoes but not only that, her socks as well. On Sunday Jason decided to go through all the socks that were missing matches. He brought up almost a whole laundry basket full! LOL! Well, as he was laying out socks, Izzy came over to help and pulled out a couple. Next thing we know she is wearing them! And here she is my little sock princess!

Well that is it for me today! I can't wait to have the girls play together! Hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by! Smiles!
