Can't you just hear the music to the Wedding March!?! The design team has gotten together to show you wedding themed cards and projects which also feature Scor-Pal!
As it turned out we did not have to build an ark yesterday, but the rain made it possible for me to work inside on my project. I NEVER seem to be able to finish things early!

But, I am so glad you came by today! If you've joined me from the talented Maureen's Blog you are in the right aisle! If not, you could start over at the Mag Highlites Blog for the complete list. The start of the Blog Hop March is at Janiel's blog! She has a wonderful project to share!

It's so exciting for me to be able to make a wedding card and gift because we have a family wedding in THREE WEEKS! Our nephew is getting married to a wonderful girl! Jessica's girls are wearing eggplant so I started there with my colors. I love rich Sahara Sand with whites and creams so I used those for my neutrals. I don't really think Cale is wearing a brown tux, but it seemed a good color for my work.
I am always so inspired by Norma, so my project is a nod to her talent~from her I copied the flowers and the Step Easel type of card. So talented is our Norma! I know many of you have made these!
Of course, another wonder of our stamping world is Diana, Queen of Magnolia! These stamps are from her great store! Here's the link to the mini and regular sized BRIDAL COUPLE (158)
The regular sized LOVE CAKE is also in the store right now! Diana is expecting NEW stamps in any time now, too!

I tried to keep the coloring very simple and here are my colors:
E00, E00, R30 and E11
E50, E33, E37, E47 and E08 (Yes, Cale is a redhead!)
E42, E25, E33
RV91, (#, (%, RV66 and 69
The new E81 (Ivory) is all I used on the cake and her dress (with 0 blender) Great color!

I used the lace on the bottom to look like a lace table cloth (and I can enter in the Just Magnolia challenge! make it lacy!)

My Small Pizza box is directly from the Scor-Pal site and directions are EASY!! This could hold some pretty filler and cash or a gift card. It is 4" square.
I would be lost without by Scor-Pal and Scor-Buddy! They are never far from me when I'm papercrafting!

And couple more pictures!
Below-so you can see the sides of the box!

Now, you'll be Marching off to Angie's beautiful blog to see what she has been up to! I know you'll enjoy it!

If there's anything you're wondering about my project that I haven't explained, just let me know!

I think I've gone on long enough and you want to be on your way! If you'd care to leave a comment you can be entered for a chance to win 3 Magnolia images and maybe a couple of other things that I love!! Entries will close on Friday night, May 20!
Thank you!

Thanks so much!!!

Hugs, Cheryl
