Good to hear its not just me! I was doing the stepping on the floor thing as well because my arms just weren't strong enough... thats when my mom started making fun of me so Sean stepped in and helped. ; )



Also... FYI - Sean went to pick up stamps for them today because I wanted cute ones and also was concerned that with all the cardstock it might weigh too much (no clue what the limit is?)... well teh weight was fine, but because I have the ribbon tied in a knot it costs an extra 20 cents due to the bulk.

Becky, they look great!

I had started making up my BP invite 'pockets' but am going to have to redo them now... yours, with the decorative cut-out, look so much better!

How big is the Palm tree stamp that you have? All the ones I see seem to be 1" or so in height.. which is too small for the cover. I'll have to check out Michael's again on the weekend :)

When we were at Michael's there were 2 sets of punches... the small ones (mostly) and then the jumbo ones.

When I measured the palm tree punchout I used was between 1.5 and 2 inches.

I can't seem to find it online... I have no clue what brand it was. I'm not at home to see if it says anything on it - but don't really recall any brand on the punch. It was blue in color and relatively big (and heavy). I'll keep trying to find it. It was one with the circle punch you press down on - as I look now alot seem to be more lever like. Wonder if that would work any better w/ the cardstock?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
