Alicia is giving one lucky person a wonderful
wedding themed page kit from Mambi.

So, sit back and grab yourself a Latte' as we dare to amaze you with our projects.

My project for this hop is 2 wedding is a 6x6 and the other I made a Center Step Card.  The 6x6 card I used Close To My heart paper pack..Balloon Ride. I used several mats and used the pattern strip that comes at the end of your CTMH B&T duos. I also used some beautiful lace that I got from a friend as well as a heart abrad that I got from the Cuttin' & Stampin' Scrappy supply store on FB.  The rhinestones are from Bo Bunny and the bride and groom cut are from the Artiste Cartridge from CTMH.  the confratulations sentiment is stamped an Chocolate ink from CTMH and the sentiment is from the stamp set..Casual Expressions.  Ibought the pretty ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the heart button I also got from a friend.  Also added were roses from

Next is the center step card.. papers are from Wild Rose Studios..Blackberry Lane, the bridal gown cut is from Artiste cartridge, which I embossed and added extension to it.  the ribbon bow is from RRR the flowersare from Petaloo,the Honeysuckle vine, the sentiment is from CTMH and was done with the Colonial white pigment ink.  I am not sure where I acquired the wedding cake Brad, but thought it would look nice with the ribbon. 

For any of the CTMH products, you can find them on my website here..
