Wedding Invites & Venetian Masks!!

Hi Blogland. I really don't know where this week has gone... I do recall posting on Tuesday, and yet Friday is now here and where has the time gone in between?? Ho Hum!!
The reason time has flown is mainly because I have been concentrating on getting some Wedding Invitations finished for a couple. They came and saw me last December and I said I would put some samples together for them. They came back in January and we agreed on the final design which I started on straight away. Well, with over 200 invites, and RSVP's to do you don't want to leave it to the last minute now do you.
With one thing and another they have only just come back to me with the final wording for the invites and RSVP's, in both English and Italian I might add!!And here they are...They have an unusual theme of Tea for their wedding. I didn't want to appear rude so I never asked why. Although I would have asked eventually! I just assumed that the Bride to be may work for a Tea company or be tea total or something like that. Anyway, now I have the wording it all makes sense. They are having an Afternoon Tea after their Ceremony instead of a traditional Wedding Breakfast, and therefore that was why they went with this theme.Oh and the Bride is tea total and works for a tea company and her surname is Tetley... Na, not really!!So with all the English and Italian invites done and ready for them to collect I will make a start on the Table Plan, Post Box, Menu's, Place Names and Favours.. Ooooohh I need a cuppa now!!!
So, seeing as I don't have a project as such to share with you today I have borrowed one of Super Sis' (Joanne) amazing projects...She amazes me in all that she does with her parchment craft. And this is no exception. Although it looks perhaps impossible to do to the untrained eye, myself included, she assures me that the project is quite simple and doesn't take too long... Yeah, whatever!!I think you'll agree... SPECTACULAR!!!
Right, I'm off to boil the kettle for that cuppa.
Thanks for checking us out..
See you soon.
