Sew Special

I had a super fun wedding yesterday (two weddings, one that was SUPER fun)!  It was pirate themed!  LOL  I borrowed a costume from one of the theater companies I act with.  I made this as a thank you for the costumer.  I figured all seamstresses can use sticky notes...right?  :)

The image is from Create With TLC.  The papers are from a black and yellow paper pack by DCWV.  Gotta love the glittery papers!!  I added a couple gems, a few buttons with burlap string through them and a bow.  Heck, too bad no one is doing a 1, 2, 3 challenge!  haha

Now, do you wanna see the pirate wedding pics (or at least a couple of them?)  Here they are.

this is me
 The bride, her dad, the groom and groomsmen goofing off
 I'm performing the wedding
 Yep, a pretty awesome wedding!  All the guests showed up in costume as well.  It was so much fun!!
