Sweet Sketch Wednesday 219

Hi there friends!!  My daughter was married this past Saturday...
What a busy but wonderful time!!  She married her childhood Sweetheart.  They are both now Gymnastics Coaches and met when they were 10 and 11 when Laura started attending the Gymnastics Club that Chad had been attending.  They started out as friends...  then dated... went to all of their Proms together, and are now Mr. and Mrs.  There were some bumps along the road, and a few years apart, but you can't deny true love.

 There was so much love all around!!  The day was extra special as it was my Mother's Birthday.  She is in Heaven, but I can't help but picture her (and my Dad) with huge smiles watching their Laura get married...

Now, on to my card for the latest Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge. I must apologize...  I did make the card the morning of the Wedding, and I guess I was a bit distracted...  I missed the embellishments at the bottom right of the Sketch, and I even created the Sketch...  oh well, guess I was suffering from Mother Of the Bride syndrome...  hmmm...

  10. Hi Sally, Wow your daughter looked totally stunning, and so did her mum two beautiful ladies. Your daughters dress was gorgeous and her day looked totally amazing. The mother of the bride looked amazing as well especially making a card on the morning of your daughters wedding. You were allowed to make mistakes it would have been such a busy day. I made the same mistake and my day was very quiet in-comparison to yours and I realized what I had done after taking my photo so had to take some more. Love your card this week and that wonderful sketch it's such a lovely image and so were your papers. Take care and have a wonderful week and weekend.
