    This took me Fi and I forever to complete and we went through various phases of "why are we making these ourselves?" when we couldn't decide or agree on things. But it has made us stronger. :) I am happy with the finished product even though we forgot two things.. A date to rsvp by - which I then tacked on to the front right side of the pocket and I realized today that we forgot to mention our wedding website again. Hopefully most people have their STD magnets on their fridge with the website..

    I mailed the out this morning so please don't mention any other things I may have forgotten. :)
    * The photo quality is not the best. The flash made it too bright and without well- here it is. I hope it's legible for ya. The accents that look like odd little bubbles are tiny little bling hearts from an art store. They look better than they do in these pics.

    I ordered my cardstock and pocketfolds from Cards & Pockets We went with the Chocolate pocket and Apricot mat and then Blue ribbon to accent it. I had a really hard time choosing colors and I think I like these so I'm going to go with it.

    Thanks to all you girls I bit ideas and phrasing off of- I'm not quite sure exactly who you are at this point but it's an amalgamation of everyone on this forum I think. I would not have been able to do these without all the help on here.
