My Parents 50th Wedding Anniversary Party Part Two

This was the cake table right past the display board as guests walked in the door.
I had all my goodies I made for my Mom & Dad's table here.

This is the front of the card box I made for them out of an old Perfume box I got a couple of years ago, I hung onto it for just the right project.
I used the New BIGZ die cut Peek a Boo frames from the NEW Holiday Mini Catalog.
This is absolutely my number one new Big shot product.
It compliments some of our favorite punches and is perfect for
scrap book pages and card accents.
The gold frame around the "Celebrating 50 years" can be made from that die& the Top Note die

Here I used the NEW Mocha Morning Specialty DSP (pg.183-#122366-$12.95)
A gold piece of mat board & I printed the CARD BOX on glossy brochure paper.

I lined the box with tissue paper that came in it. See the little peek a boo door in the top of the box also from the NEW Peek a Boo die cut.

These are bride & groom boxes made out of the petal cone die,
tasteful trim die, and the heart punch.
The cake, I used empty embellishment containers and scallop die cuts of all sizes layering up. With the beautiful SU satin white ribbon on the wedding dress and
then the black & white 1/8 inch taffeta on the groom.
Both were made out of the wedding series DSP.

I think this was my favorite and a hit at the party. I made the guest book with the SU On Board Journal pg.191 covered it with the Bride & Groom DSP and the brayered red embellishment I got at a expo when the smooch spray came out. I was so happy with the way it turned out.
I originally made it for a guest book sign in- but I though this is awful bi and has alot of pages so I added the option for them to tell a funny story they shared with my parents or a message they wanted to give. I stamped a few of the pages as seen below.
Stamp Set: Word Play and a new set from the (HMC), & the Have a Seat & Creative Elements sets.

Everyone passed it around and told stories and wrote wonderful sentiments.
My Mom & Dad enjoyed reading it so much.

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!!
