My Parents 50th Wedding Anniversary Party Part One

These are my parents pictures from their wedding album that was literally falling apart when my Mom handed it to me and asked me to make a picture board for them.
We had the board at the entrance as the guests came in the door.
My Mom & Dad seem to really enjoy the board they were constantly up there with friends showing the pictures, everyone can't believe how young they were.
They met at 14 (MOM) & Dad was (16) and have been together ever since.
They married on August 4th, 1961. Mom was 16 & Dad was 18.

I have to say in this day and time it makes me so proud to be able to say my parents have been very happily married for 50 years, lived in the same house for 40 years and are active pillars of their small town community. My parents have always been an amazing example of endurance.

This is the card I gave them for their day!
I made it with the petal cone die which makes an awesome heart card.
Directions: will posted step by step in the next days to come.

We just returned home from a whirlwind weekend of party giving and visiting with old friends and family. I am so enjoying looking at all the pictures, I see a really big scrapbook project coming hopefully for a Christmas gift.

Many more pictures and projects to come!!
