Water water everywhere

Yet another busy week has passed in the Party Nights household.............two wedding orders finished and two more received :) Both couples get married on 28th July and both have had colours I don't get to work with very often when 'doing' pink and purple! The colours worked very well and both couples are pleased with the results. See for yourselves what I mean about the colours
Here we have the wedding favours (white almond filled racquets with purple and white daisies and purple ribbon) and the coordinating seating plan.

And a close up of the favours.

All the tables for this wedding are named after landmarks in Paris (where the groom proposed) which we printed in grey scale as a background. The tri-fold cards have the table name and the name and date of the couple and their wedding on one side, the menu printed on the second side and the guests names printed on the third side. These are held together with ivory organza ribbon threaded through bright pink eyelets set with the Cropodile.

My to do list is still as long as my arm and doesn't seem to want to shrink. LOL This next week I need to make

an exploding box

10 extra evening invitations for a couple who miscounted!

2 birthday cards for my mum

a feather fascinator

another breast cancer awareness phone charm

start my samples for Debbi Moore

start my brother's scrapbook album

sort out a Braille menu and order of the day

and make 100 Christmas cards for a local hotel..................oh, and finish organising my mum's birthday bash which is a week on Sunday. It's a good job I love my work :))

I wish all this horrible rain would stop and give us the chance of a little bit of summer. I went down to visit the school I used to work in today. Those of you who have been reading my blog for a while will know that the village I worked in was not only flooded last year but remained under water for eight days! The school is finally ready to move back into after being in porta cabins for 12 months. It will be totally sorted with books and everything in place by the time they break up next Friday. They have made a wonderful job of it, such an improvement on the old school. Every time we have continuous rain, like we've had for the last few days, the children start to panic as some of them are only just moving back into their homes after living in caravans for 12 months!

I'm now going to have a quick look to see if I can incorporate any challenges into my mum's cards and then I might have a play with my Debbi Moore kit or start my brother's scrap album.

Take care and thanks for looking. :)

Lovley work, the happy couple must be thrilled with what you made for them. I agree with you about the rain - it's getting really stale now - come on Mr Sun let's have a little summer weather please.

Good grief Jackie, what a great "to do" list!! Must be better than ironing and washing (although I expect you've got to do that as well!!). Wish I'd met you before I got married 'cause I would have had you make all my wedding's absolutely gorgeous :)
