Viva La Verve November Week 2 Sketch Recap

VLV Nov 2015 Week 2 photo VLVNov15Wk3.jpg

This week's sketch is brought to us by Maureen and this sketch definitely has two of her favorite things on it:  a big circle you can use a doily for and a tag.

In a rush to get some Christmas cards done I created another one with this week's sketch.  Love the font on this Christmas Blessings Plain Jane.  Added a red doily (a la Moe) and underlay it with a white as it didn't really show up well against the kraft.  Back to my go to tree from the Winter Fun die set and some buttons and twine to finish things off.

You can check out my Viva La Verve recap and viewfinder post for some added inspiration or browse the gallery to get your mojo going.  Verve Stamps are not required, but we love to see them if you have them :)

Still recovering from a very busy weekend.  The son of some good friend of ours got married this past Friday and the wedding was put together in about two weeks!!  Yes, it can be done folks!  With an army of people contributing to the cause, we managed to help them pull it off :)   I made the table give aways as well as the guest registry and helped with set up and take down.  My daughter was asked to be the photographer (and I her trust assistant), her photography teacher was kind enough to lend her a high end flash for her camera as well as a diffuser, the rain held off, she got some great shots, and is giddy that she was able to do a wedding!  It was a lovely, albeit busy, day and everything fell into place.  Most importantly, the bride and groom were thrilled with the outcome and very grateful to everyone who helped pull it off.  Miracles still happen {grin}.

Thanks for popping in and have a fabulous day!

The red/green/kraft combination..your trio of trees...the doily...a combination that has me smiling! Planning and carrying out a wedding in under two weeks is impressive; sounds like it truly was a 'family and friends' affair...sweet and intimate! A bit like a fairytale...and I wish the newlyweds a very long 'happily ever after'...
