My card to Gillian 

I got this verse from Sandra ( Cotswold crafters) and it brought tears to my eyes and still does every time I read it.   It was just the perfect words to put on a card to give Giilian on the eve of her wedding  I did get a phone call saying "you have made me cry" along with her friend who was staying with her.

I used papers from what was left of the Papermania pads I had used on their invitations, lace from stash also the flowers, Sue Wilson's  bow die and Marianna foliage.

I have share this photo of the boys, it's not a moment we see often.

It didn't last long either, they do love each other but boys will be boys!!!

Thank everyone of you for your lovely comments on the photos, yes I am a proud mum and granny.
I will be doing some scrap booking over the winter as its memories that need to be kept.

I hope you all have a good weekend.

I agree the verse does bring a tear, but so too does that wonderful photo of your two darling little grandsons, I love to see the kilts, thank you for sharing this wonderful one.
    With love

  13. A beautiful card, and yes, it would make me sniffle too. So heartfelt & so very true. It took me a couple of tries to get it enlarged enough to read it. I was entranced with the 2 little cuties in their kilts. What handsome lads. So glad that the wedding turned out beautifully and wish them every happiness. TFS
