    Our wedding is fast approaching so I am managing to get some of my DIY projects finished up! 

     

    We are doing a message in a bottle guest book so this is our write up in a frame with our wedding colours as the matting on the sides:

     

     

    Here is the bottle and paper we will have set out:

     

     

    and my FAVOURITE so far are the wedding favours :)  

     

    I'm not sure why the camera couldn't get a picture of the writing on the velum but the saying on the card is:

    "As precious as the oceans treasures,

    Too strong from anyone to measure

    Two hearts joined together,

    Sharing their lives forever!"

    Thank You for joining us on our special day!

      Hmm I am completely unsure of why all but one of my photos posted sideways....once I figure it out I will try to repost them right side up! (if anyone has suggestions on how to fix this that would help too because my pictures have never done this before)

       

      Cheers!

            I love the little glass bottles with corks! I thought they were so cute but never knew what I would make with them. So cute!!

              Thanks! 

               

              The sand in our bottles is from Mexico too! We got engaged there and brought sand home to do message in a bottle invites but we ended up doing boarding passes instead. I searched high and low for mini bottles for the favours and Michaels ended up coming through for me (lol) with a set of 18 which I used my 40% off coupon on and got them for a steal of a deal! 

               

              I am surprised at my DIY's and am so happy I decided to give them all a try!

                I have really got to start going to Micheal's on a regular basis to find all of these good deals you ladies talk about!

                  I put their app on my iPhone, and whenever I am in the store and need something I check for the coupons. Or before I go to the store I look online and print off the coupons I can use and that way if there's a few things we need I give coupons to the FI to use on some stuff and I use the others on other things :) We don't have a ton of options for craft stores in Canada, or Calgary at least so Michaels has been a lifesaver!!!
