To Have & To Hold: PP198

June 1, 2014

WOW!  It is June!  I can't believe it!  

I had such a wonderful day in Atlanta, yesterday.  I met my dear friend, Angel and we went to a scrapbooking/stamping store in Roswell.  It is such a perfect little shop.  Impressive Ideas is located in an old home in the Historic District and it truly a treasure.  (32 Magnolia Street, Roswell, GA).  There just aren't many little places left for all of the  paper lovers!   I could have stayed in there for hours!  I did buy a few little items and will definitely return!  Then off to a party to celebrate Angel's birthday with lots of wonderful ladies!  It was a fun evening!

Sandy' Theme Challenge at The Paper Players is a wedding theme.  I know so many couples that got married in June, so it is a perfect theme!  I was so excited to purchase Embossing Paste yesterday.  I have wanted to try it for quite a while and I decided today was the day.  I cleaned my craft room the other day and came across a few treasures that I didn't remember I owned-----One of the finds was this stencil and it seemed like the perfect flower background for my wedding card.  I also found some pink embossing powder that I never opened, so I used it with my embossing paste.  Anne Marie, this one is for you, because I know you LOVE pink!  I hope you enjoy my card.  

   The White Organza Ribbon did not photograph well, but it is Whisper White when you see it. :)

  1. This is gorgeous, Claire! Have to try that out some time. I am soooo jealous that you went out to celebrate Angel's birthday! How fun! It would have been a blast to meet you and the other stamping gals in person, but you gals are too far away! So glad to have met you, Claire. You are a positive inspiration for me! Hugs!

    1. Thank you very much, Annette! Wish you would have been here to celebrate with us! You always make me feel special! Sending you lots of hugs! XX
