Golden Wedding

Two very special people celebrate
 a very special day today

My Aunt Carol & Uncle Jim
Aunt Carol is also my Godmother

Their 50th Wedding Anniversary
They were married the year I was born

So, I set to and made them this
12 x 12 frame with one of their
wedding photo's and a recent photo

Lots of special things on this project....
Papers are Blae & Ivy Collection from Kaiser
There's Prima, Zva, Spellbinders, American Crafts,
ribbon, lace, roses, KindyGlitz,
gorgeous crochet doily, trinkets
and two precious photo's

The theme continues with the card,
also using Blae & Ivy

The numbers at the top of card
and frame are American Thickers,
 which were originally pink!
I sanded them back and heat embossed them
with gold embossing powder

I stamped and embossed the word
celebrate at card bottom also
Martha Stewart "Layered Arches" PATP

And, of course, a box for the card!

Simply decorated with some paper, ribbon
and a few wee roses.
I have added the punched edge inside
 the acetate window and finished
with a wee bit ribbon trim

A money wallet, which is also
 Blae & Ivy,
 though you wouldn't
 know it (the back of this paper is blue!)

Martha Stewart "Lace Doily" punch
Some more ribbon trim, beautiful wee roses,
including one yellow rose, a couple of Prima
 leaves and some gold sprigs

Now, what to put it in?
Pizza box of course!!
 Average box 12 x 12. Frame 14 x 14! *#!**
So, beautiful Daughter headed round to
 the local take away for me and asked to buy
 a big (16x16) pizza box. No food, just the box! 
She got a few funny looks,
not least from the customers waiting
 for their orders, and duly arrived home
 with this beauty 

A couple of sheets of wrapping paper,
 and duly transformed

Loving the title frame
Nestabilities "Floral Ovals"
and gold card - perfect

A few sheets of gold tissue paper

Wrapped and ready to go

So, dear Aunt Carol & Uncle Jim,
Congratulations on your
Golden Wedding Anniversary,
 you are an inspiration to all of us
