My Mother-In-Law accidently took home my chocolate chip stamp pad yesterday. So I took the oppurtunity to take a break from the wedding stuff and do some cards just for the heck of it. Steph asked me "Who are you making those for?" And I said no one. She said we don't have time to do things for no one. And I said Grandma has my chocolate chip stamp pad. I have to admit it was nice to be able to just have fun. But tomorrow it will be back to the grind stone. Only two weeks left. These cards are all from last years Stampin Up catalog. The last two were scrapbook pages I converted into cards.

I had been trying to decide what to do for programs to hand out at the wedding. I came up with a basic design and thought ok I could take it somewhere and have copies made and then I wouldn't have to print them all myself. So I called around and the cheapest I could find was 49 cents a piece. Well when you need 150 copies that adds up. So I printed them myself. One page at a time because the printer wouldn't take more than that. I used 4 different types of paper just to mix it up a bit and trying to find one that wouldn't jam my printer. Then embossed vellum on my cuddlebug and layered that on the top added a ribbon and wala. As you can see I have 4 done. What was I thinking?

Well the wedding plans are going ahead full steam. I can't believe that in just a little over one month my baby girl will be getting married. But she is very excited and I am very happy for her and Travis. Steph had a couple of showers last weekend and we got the cutest favors so I thought I would share them. I am really hoping that when the wedding is done I will get my mojo back and be posting more regularly.
