Wedding favors and a blog award

A big thank you to Aimes for giving me this fab award. It really made my day to have received this so thank you Aimes!



Now for the hard bit, I have to nominate 10 blogs - how can I choose?

Ok, here goes:
1. Bekka - My faboo SU! mummy who is just so so supportive :)
2. FrenchieJo - Super creative and all round fab blog!
3. Pink Elephant - I know technically this may not count as its a challenge blog but it has provided me with so much inspiration!
4. Elaine - You really do need to check out this blog. I love those magic boxes!
5. Tara - Again, another blog that has provided me with some much needed inspiration at times.
6. Debbie - Very talented lady and full of ideas!
7. Nicole - Free templates! Who doesn't love that?
8. Charisma cards - Again it's another challenge blog with great sketches
9. Joanne - This lady can show you how to make the most amazing paper flowers.
10. Paula - Last but by no means least this is another of my favourite blogs.

Phew!
So, now that's done I wanted to show you some favors I made for my mum's wedding in June last year just before she moved to Dubai. I had a ball making these and have been itching to make more ever since!

Below are some cake boxes, we actually had them on a circle stand and placed the wedding cake on top in the centre. It looked so fab having that as a base to the cake!



And for the favors, I made these little bag-a-lopes. I found the template on Split Coast Stampers and just altered it to fit in with the specifications.


I don't know why I've waited so long to share these with you but better late than never hey!

Here's one of my fave photos with me, little sis and my grandad.


And one of my gorgeous mum!


Thanks for stopping by,
take care x
