Eggplant Wedding and Sorry xxxx

Hi there lovelies. first let me say sorry for not being around just been so busy here and then I wasn't to well but nothing to worry about! Feeling much better and just trying to get everything done before Biggar Show where I have another table in the craft tent, woo hoo!! Also gotta get all my Wedding stuff finished while doing loads of box orders, its great being so busy hee!!

Lanimers was brill and the floats were stunning, will add some pics soon. I loved the Beating of the Retreat at night like a mini Tattoo. Was the highlight for me!! We spent the day with my in laws and my nephews, was fab day and sun even came out later in the day and we say out the back for nearly the entire day!!

OK on to the wee box. A lovely lady asked me to make this after hubby told her about me!! She wanted it to be ivory and eggplant in colour, but when the card came it was slightly lighter purple than I hoped for. She still loved it so that's all that matters hee!!

Cream and "eggplant"12x12 papers - Hobbycraft

Sliver mirror card - Papermania

Flowers - Mulberry Crafts and handmade

everything else is from stash


I hope you like it and the colour is OK? Sorry about the blanked parts but it had all the wedding details and I wasn't sure whether it would be OK to show or not?? I so enjoy making these boxes, my fave i think hee!!

Again I'm sorry for not being around and will try and stay on top of things just now!! Kat hunny you would have loved Lanimers this year, so many gorjuss floats, the bands, the stunning wee Queen and then the Tattoo!! Will add pics soon!!

This is absolutely gorgeous Melly. I love it all, especially the colour.

It's great it was a nice day for Lanimers. It's so long since I saw it all. We've been in Aberdeenshire since 1989.

Thanks for joining us at TG this week.
