Creative Inspirations,DT and some butterflies,

Morning,guys,well yesterday  my SILand I went with Lisa to try some wedding dresses on,and oh boy talk about tears,there are 2 she fell in love with and oh guys she looked stunning.
This daft old biddy,sat there with tears streaming down her face even last night watching mama mia I was in tears especially the mother daughter bit when she asked her mum to give her away. I am great fan of Abba,have all there Albums just love there music.
Lisa is so caring,thoughtful and oh has that kid been through some,hellish times,bless her heart,but together we got through them and too see her yesterday happy,and in a wedding dress made everything,come together if you know what I mean.
My kids are very special to me,both of them,we have had such a long hard journey,and to see them both come out the other side has been the most rewarding thing any parent could wish for.
I am off to my son's today he is,doing a barb-b-que,lol I told him to make sure he had a pkt of tissues,lol bless him.
Right enough of this old,twit rambling on.

Hi guys,well its time again,for another Challenge over at creative inspirations,and the theme this week
choosen,by little old me is,Easter,card,project,you should see the rest of the teams,makes oh they are lush. so I made a card,and some,Easter,sweets from card,paper,and things,here it is.

The wee eggs,I made from some Fimo,then painted,them.made the choc,etc,from paper and card.
So hope you can join us,this week,
Next I have some cards I have been making,with one of my Butterfly stamps,from La,Blanc,colored with prisma pencils, embossed,the background,not sure what papers,they are,think they are Su not sure,added some adheshive stones,colred with pens,glittered edges of the butterfly,then cut it out. Then just added Ribbon to finish.

I know what you mean about that scene from Mama Mia, and crying when you see your daughter in her wedding dress - so emotional isn't it. Your daughter sounds like she is such a sweetheart.
Oh yes - I love these projects too Cheryl! Love and hugs, Sylvia xxxx
