So, today I went to my first Bridal shower ever! Are you amazed? I know I am! So, I was freaking out about what to get/make for my sister in law, Kristina. I don’t know her all that well (I feel like I should know her much better, since we’ve been in the same family now for the last 22 years . . . . ).
I was going to do some scrapbook pages, but didn’t know if she scrapbooked. Then I was going to do a mini album, but didn’t know if she would like it. Then was going to make some Anthro knock offs (because I found some that were awesome!!) . . but didn’t know what colors she liked to wear.
So, then I came to the decision that I would make a memo board for her, and of course, the card too. Her wedding colors are chocolate and champagne, and I am going to guess those are her favorite colors too (but I could be wrong!). The stuff on her registry are blacks and espressos . . . so . . . I went with that color scheme. (she had some towels or linnens on there that had a blue in them, so I used that to)
So, I made this memo board that is partly metallic, partly cork board, and a spot for a saying (or photos or whatnot).
And of course, I had to have an awesome card to go with. Not just any ol’ card . . . an awesome one! So, I went searching through my ‘ideas’ folder, and found a beautiful card by Teneale Williams. Here is her card:
Isn’t it gorgeous?? You can find her blog >>here< <. Her blog is one that I must visit daily! Beautiful cards! Wonderful inspiration!!! Anyway, you can see that I did a lot of following, but a bit of difference. Because I had the dress on the front, I decided that I didn't need more ribbon to distract from it.
The inside I decided needed to be decorated, but not overbearing. (and I forgot to get a photo BEFORE I wrote in it! LOL) I wanted to incorporate the dress form from the front too. This is what I came up with!
So, I hope you liked what you saw today!
