Well lets just say there were quite a few imperfections that would not have been there if I had done them myself. Now don’t get me wrong, mine are not perfect, but I am very aware of every mistake I can usually cover or incorporate it.

    OK, I’m going to get back on the ball. Thanks again for all of your kind words and encouragement. I think you guys are the only ones that really understand.
    Ha! While I'm so glad my girls helped me out on my projects, I still look back at the gluedots on my menus and wish they were placed perfectly centered.. ah! bridezilla!! Maybe they can help stuff and mail or something like that instead. :)

      I feel so much better! I’m going to start working on them again. I really don’t have anyone helping me with my wedding and my sisters don’t even know if they are going to go with me… so they are not being very supportive at the moment and I really not in the mood to nag them . I think I just needed some support, and you guys have helped me more than you know.

      Amy, your right doing twenty at a time and taking a break has been working for me. Ok, I’m getting back on track.

      I’m so picky its horrible, I’m sitting here thinking “ok what can they do that cant be messed up…” I guess I could live with putting the invitations in the envelops and addressing…… (I even cringe on that). I’m horrible.

      Thanks so much. I have a scrapbooking program that I use a lot, but if you have access to Microsoft word clipart they have tons of stuff. If you can’t find anything, PM me what types of clipart you need and I can try to look for stuff that you might be able to use and send it to you. Let me know..

      The problem with the embossing is, they all turn out different. I add a layer of the gold, shake, then dust it with pink then heat emboss. They have been turning out how I like so far, but you never know, especially since my next inkpad is a different brand (you know how it is).

      I love embossing and I thought about doing that on my invites, but I ran into the same problem you just described... in consistancy. My FI is WAY too anal for everyone to not be perfect!
