Weddings - who'd have them!!!! (warning - its a long one!)

Well howdy folks its been a long time since I've been on here. I think I last left you saying I had some invites to do for my younger sister's wedding, well things have been going well and truly pear shaped on that front. I won't bore you will all the details but lets just say some old underlying family issues have now been well and truly blasted in to the fore and the "Sh.... has really hit the fan!!!! They say its one of the most stressful times don't they!

Well swiftly moving on, I did think I would show a couple of piccies of the invites. We did cheat a little in the end though as my sister decided she wanted the prefolded invites but everything else is what I added and it still took long enough!

Sorry about the plop piccies but they were taken in a hurry and everyone knows I'm photographically challenged.
Before I go I have to say a huge thank you to Donna, DK Crafts, for the fab Sweet Blogger award she kindly sent my way. Its means a lot to me so thank you and sorry for taking so long to put it up here. The rules are to share 3 things about myself and pass this on to five other lovely peeps, so here goes:-

1. My favourite colour is red.

2. I'm a BIG Twilight saga fan can't get enough of Jacob!!! (I know I'm way too old but who cares eh!!)

3. I'm addicted to the sweets Parma Violets and double lollipops.

I would like to pass this on to the following peeps:-

Mandy, A Sprinkling of Glitter
Cherie, All kinds of crafty things
Sally, Scallywags

These guys are amazingly talented and I am guilty of stalking their blogs but not always leaving comments and I would like them to have the award to say thank you for the endless amounts of inspiration they give with their creations.

Phew that was a long one and if you made it to the end thank you for stopping by. I have a couple of other things to share with you so I may be back later on. Take care folks and happy crafting, Ann-Marie xxx
