Anniversary Blog Candy: 80th Birthday and Bridal Shower!

This post will stay close to the top of my blog: For newer posts please scroll down!

I had every intention to post my anniversary blog candy on the first, however time just did not allow! I had such a busy weekend.
I will be giving away 3 yes 3 blog candy offerings and for every 25 followers over 600 I will add another give a way in honor of my blog anniversary! All that you have to do is follow me, leave a comment and link my blog candy to your blog. If you do not have a blog, just send an email to 5 of your friends about my give a way!
This candy will end on the end of the month! (May)

On Friday night we attended my father-in-law's 80th birthday cookout. We had lots of fun visiting with family! Saturday, had me heading to northern Indiana, for my niece's Bridal shower. I am so proud of her that she waited until she found the best that God had for her. She was thinking that she was going to be an "old maid"(She is 28). But instead of settling and compromising her values she is marrying the perfect fella for her! I made a bridal card for her last week. I have to say that Charlotte from Midnight Madness gave me the idea for this wonderful card.



Photobucket
I wanted to use musical paper, in my card but had difficulty finding anything without alot of color in it. I ended up printing a song sheet out on card stock. Flowers were purchased at Archivers.


Photobucket
I used my new Holtz sizzex die cut for the swirls that were cut out of the same musical paper.
My eyelet trim are actually paper ribbon, that I just had to fasten down. Scripture sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Stamps. I thought that it was a perfect reminder for her that waiting on God's best is a beautiful thing!

This is a picture of one of the games that we played at the Bridal Shower. We were divided into 3 groups and given 3 rolls of toilet tissue and had to create a wedding dress. The two girls on the left side are my nieces, Molli and Britney along with one of their friends. They were all good sports. It took forever to braid that toilet tissue without it breaking. Can you tell which group I was in? (hint... far left ;) ) It was lots of fun!

Jessica (The up coming Bride, in the background) and her sister Molli. Even though there is a wide age span (11 years) , they are very close!
