Hi Everyone,

I always seem to be apologising for my absences from blogging....but again it has been health related but hopefully I can once again get on top of my posting!!..Fingers crossed.

Well I haven't been idle....my son was married at the beginning of september and I decided to have a go at making a few things for the wedding.  

I had always wanted to try ribbon roses, and ended up making the bridal bouquet!!..what an honour for me. I had never done them before, so it was a challenge, but I really enjoyed making them.  I used satin ribbon and decorated them with pearls.........also I made the bridesmaid corsages and one for the mother of the bride and of course myself...as well as the groom's buttonhole.

I also made them their wedding post box and guest book...pictures below.

I will post a pic of the happy couple too.

Wedding Post Box
Made from card stock, covered and decorated with some handmade silk roses to match the bridal bouquet and trimmed with pearl string and lace.

Wedding Guest Book

Made using papers from the Mimosa paper collection. Cut out the hearts with a Martha Stewart punch and added a frame for the title.

I added their pic to the front page.

The Happy Couple

I love this photo

Bridal bouquet, made with ivory and pink silk ribbon and pearls added to the centre and down the handle.  Finished with pink ribbon bows.

I really enjoyed making all the flowers and extras, and hope you like them.
Have a super crafty week.
