Wedding Gift Set

Howdy Folks!

This has been a crazy year for weather so far! Yesterday we experienced a small tremor from an earthquake in Quebec and tonight they are calling for severe thunderstorms ands tornado activity! We don't get much excitement around here so once the tremor hit, everyone was a little confused. My china cabinet was rattling but I thought that was the normal creeks of the house....uh I was soooo wrong!

Anyway, I have been super busy with diaper cakes and gift sets that I haven't been blogging much but I'm back now and on to some challenge entries to boot :)

I love making these sets. The concept was inspired by the wonderful Nicole Heady from Papertry Ink. You can find the original design here and a set that I made based on it here.

This set is the same concept. Although I came up with around 80 questions all wedding and dating related, perfect for a new bride to journal her life with her new husband :)

** Loads of pictures for this set!**
