This .. and .. That!

Well, all that talk about my daughters engagement video got me inspired to do some wedding designing ... lol. (Like the 20 part Wedding Wishes series I did last year was not enough~!) There's one thing about a wedding - you know there are going to be plenty of pictures to scrap~!

Actually my daughter and fiance stopped in today on their way home from a cottage that wasn't too far from here. They went with her fiances parents and they came over too. We've met them once before but it feels like we've known them for much longer. They are very close to our age and we all get along great.

On another note ~ coming home from Montreal a few weeks back we came across this really neat store off a side road just out of town called Primitive Designs. It had everything from Tiki Bars to Mexican masks etc. Everything was imported from places like Mexico, Malaysia etc. I love that kind of thing~! One of things we saw there were these patio stones done in all different designs. We really liked them and noticed they were done very similar to our front patio stones in little pebbles. When we went home and measured we realized that one of the larger ones would fit perfect if we took out 4 of our smaller ones.

Isn't it neat? I love it and its right up my alley as far as colours etc.

OK, back to the Wedding topic

I was inspired to do something and came up with these;

If you've been to LLL Creations Dollar Mart and checked out my
Word Art you will know that I've made Page Toppers before and I LOVE using them. They span across a 12x12 inch layout and make a great ... well, page topper

What I like the most about them is the look of them changes when you change the paper underneath. They are only $1.50 a set and you can get them here or just go through LLL Creations Dollar Mart under the Word Art category.

The Girls and Boys cluster frames were a hit ... the boys beat the girls as far as downloads go. If you missed out you can get them both here.

And today I have some Paper Flower Frames for you;

And here's a layout to show you the size against a 12x12 inch page.

Hope you had a great weekend~!

I think I know exactly the store that you're talking about! We drive past that store every time we travel up to Peterborough! (but I've never been brave enough to stop in - obviously I'll need to do so now!) Thanks as always for sharing.
