Hello there,

I hope you all had a fabulous bank holiday weekend. We had a super few days full of  family time. My sister was down here with her family, as well as some of my step children and their children :) It was so great and I am a little sad to be alone in a empty house this morning :(

Talk about an empty house, we are collecting Nico’s ashes later today then me and Pete will take a walk alongside the river to scatter them. This was Nico’s favourite spot for walks and bathing and we are sure he would have chosen that spot as well. Still can’t get used to not having him, I know its still early days and it will get easier.

I want to thank all those that messaged, emailed and left comments here on my blog. We really appreciate you thinking of us, we were very moved. THANK YOU once again :)

Today I am sharing some more projects from my booth. Here is a table shot I set up everything to give a sense of how everything would look on a wedding table. I did set it up outside in  the garden.

Here’s a closer look of the menu

Stampin'Up! beautifully Boutique menu card

The beautifully baroque stamp is just stunning and lends itself very well for this kind of application, ie. stamped over the printed menus. Same stamp was also used for the little place cards.

And I made a matching favour box topped with coffee filter frills which I spritzed with vanilla smooch for a pearlized effect.

Then my final project was these sweet coloured glass votives and fancy pressed glassware.Stampin'Up! pressed glass

I will have a video of these soon to showcase how you can make them. They are just stunning !!!
