Wedding Joy

We just returned from Toronto where we attended my nephew's wedding.  It was so beautiful and he and his new wife clearly love each other very much!  I wish them all the love and joy that marriage brings.  As well, we got to visit with family, nice since we live on opposite sides of the country and don't get to see each other very often. 

I was honored to be asked to make the wedding invitations, which I did and gave them as a wedding gift. I also created thank you cards that went with the theme of the wedding. 

For a small gift to give at the wedding, I made these wine bottle lables that also come with a poem about each special event.  I got the idea from someone else on the www here but I can't find the name of the blog and I'm so tired -- so speak up if it is you so I can give credit where credit is due!!!   Edited - I found the site -- It is from Starlit Studio - Cindy Lyles (she's brilliant!!).  HERE is the direct link to her blog and you will see that I really did get my inspiration from her. 
I hope you enjoy checking out these wedding items.  Remember, if you want to see any of them a bit larger you just need to click on the picture (and if that doesn't work try right clicking on the image and then selecting 'open' from the menu).

Thanks for dropping in.

I like the wine thing, and the ribbons are well design. I will do this for my wedding soon.
