MEGAN ELISSA CARO & JOHN RICHARDSON MILLER are engaged!
THE VERY HAPPY BRIDE-TO-BE CAN HARDLY CONTROL HERSELF!
Below is the invitation I made for the engagement BBQ. The day was for once, in a long time, SUNNY and was spent with family and friends. Thank you everyone for celebrating Meg & John’s engagement and such and adding to this special occasion.
For the invitation I used Very Vanilla Card Stock and computer generated lettering. I used the bird from Stampin’ Up! Carte Postale Stamp Set (retired) stamped in Baja Breeze Ink (retired) because Meg fell in love not only with John but, with that color in the last catalog. Baja Breeze is one of the colors Meg chose for her wedding.
I embossed the top left corner of the invitation with the “Big Shot” Textured Impressions Embossing Folder called “Elegant Flowers.” If you haven’t bought the “Big Shot” yet you really should consider it. I use it for everything and it’s a cinch to use. Below is an enlargement of the embossing. Please excuse the color of the photo. I had my camera settings wrong but you can clearly see the embossing.
We scattered hand stamped paper fans on all of the tables. Again I stamped the bird from the Carte Postale Stamp Set in Baja Breeze Ink. On the bamboo part of the fan I stamped “We’re Engaged” from the Together Forever Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink a new In-Color. Here is a picture of one of the fans:

THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HELP FREDDY AND FOOD, JANET, LISA, JEFF, JULIE, NANCY, DONNA & LINDA. THE DAY WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN A CELEBRATION WITH OUT YOU. I LOVE ALL OF YOU MORE THAN YOU WILL EVER KNOW.
