      Well our little Cesar Chavez come home tomorrow and my son is around the house making sure everything is in order.  If he goes to the crate one more time I think I will put him in it lol.  So knowing the the weekend will be pretty busy for us starting tomorrow with an hours drive to and fro and a pick-up time at 12p there will be no DIYing here.  So, I managed (with my sick tail) to finish our "pop of color" for our welcome dinner.  The quotes were taken from the bible passage 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 all except "Love is Wright"  ;-)

        GREAT JOB EVERYTHING LOOKS AMAZING !!!!!!!.

        And, now, possibly the favorite thing I've made so far!  Passport Welcome Booklets.  THANK YOU to all the brides who have posted their passports and to Beck for her planning tips.  This took me AGES, but I love them.  :)  I hope our guests do, too!  Enjoy.

         

        P.S.  I apologize for the long post!!  There's 24 pages, I think.  And there's pages of Spanish & Puzzles, which I didn't post.  I felt I was already going overboard posting this, LOL!!  xoxo

         



        And ------ drumroll, please ------ the project that's taken me the absolute longest..... the OOT bags + Passport Welcome Booklets (on next post)!! 

         

        I screenprinted on the logos on these bad boys:

        Here's a closeup on the tags I made for the bags:  (each tag has different charms - seashells, sanddollars, compasses, starfish + an inspiring word like Life, Love, etc.)

        Here's the bag with the contents:  (underwater camera, Oh Sh*t Kit, Door Knob Hanger, Passport Welcome Book, Playing Cards, Key Holder, and cards for our Time Capsule guest book.)

          I am sorry to hear this.  We all have been issues like these.  I have been fighting with my MOH for days now over her unwillingness to pack her bouquet of 6 flowers in her own luggage. 

          OMG! After hearing story after story of brides having difficulties with family and the wedding party I was so glad we kept our list small and only our very close friends and family. Now 65 days out my FI bestman just TEXTED he wont be coming. I am so pissed. How do you agree to be a bestman, not the grooms man, not a guest but a BESTMAN and not follow through! My FI is trying to be understanding but I just don't get it. Nothing would keep me from my bestfriends wedding! WTF!

            I was planning on making paper funnels for flower petals, as well.  Yours looks great!  What did you use to secure it--staples, double-sided tape??  I was getting ready to start messing with it, but hadn't figured out what method would be the best.

            Here are some little goodies I've been working on:

             

            These will hold our blue and white petals in, which guests will toss at the end of the ceremony, and will go in the sand in front of each chair on the beach.  The heart tag says "Love."

            I had these stamps already for other projects and thought --- why not buy napkins for $2.50 and stamp them quickly for an added personal touch for the cocktail hour? :)

              First, I used double-sided tape.  Then, at the ends, I hot glued them to make sure they stayed together.  (My paper is heavy cardstock, so double-sided tape just isn't strong enough.)  The twine is actually threaded through the paper, too, so it helps it stay together as well.  :)  Good luck on yours!!  Hope you post pics!

                    Hello Chicas,

                     

                    A quick update, Cesar is home and did an excellent job in the car.  We went to PetSmart and the ladies tried to steel him from us already ;-)  He is home and slowly getting use to his new pad which he did the number 1 twice.... but we were prepared for this. 

                     

                    Cesar in the car nestled between my grandma and son.

                    to my surprise when I got in the house were several packages for Cesar and also our photobox which will serve as our guestbook (The butterfly and beach 4x6 cards that I made and posted several post back)  So excited and can't wait for FI to get home.

                      Yes you can use resort credits to take a limo back to the airport, we did this as we had so many left over from my SIL's wedding that I Think we actually all did this option
