for my brother and future sister in law!

How adorable is my "baby" brother(he loves when I call him that) and his fiance' Alyssa??? They are so sweet and I am just so excited for their upcoming wedding on September 12, 2009! It is going to be a wonderful celebration and I am so tickled for them! Plus my kids think that "Auntie Alyssa" is SUPER FUN! SO CUTE!

My Mom asked me if I wouldn't mind helping her with the Rehearsal Dinner invitations and I of course said YES!!! I did a bridal fair once in Pensacola, FL and had so much fun playing and designing invitations, party favors and showing them how to make darling albums for their memories! You can view some of this on my website.

It was a bit challenging to design something with my Mom all the way in Colorado but thank goodness for email and digital pictures!!!! LOVE IT! My Mom is a simple and elegant lady and she is very specific for what she wants so I hope I fulfilled her vision- she is one tough customer! LOVE YOU MOM! :)

So here are the fun invitations I made. I will be mailing them all to my Mom tomorrow. And I just love the Clear Envelopes! I added a 6x6 piece of vellum to lay on top just to mute the wording in the envelope. :)

***Close To My Heart Product Used: Colonial White Grosgrain Ribbon, Olive Cardstock, Buttercream Cardstock and Colonial White Cardstock.
