PP408 Little Love Notes

Happy Sunday, peeps!  Joanne is our hostess this week at the Paper Players and she has a really fun, cute challenge for us this week!  Here ya go:

This one was a great one for me as I was strapped for time and these little lunchbox notes just flew together!  I found some little envelopes in my envelope box that fit a 2 x 3 1/4" card perfectly, so I just chose some scraps from my stash and went to work!  The main images are from a set called In Print by Clearly Besotted....they all use the same "fingerprint" image and are topped with various animal outlines:

They have coordinating sentiments and I added some little stamped embellishments as well:

I will give these to Dana to tuck in Cassidy's lunchbox!  The DT also has some fun creations as well, not all as tiny as these, LOL!  Be sure to check them out and share your little lunchbox notes with us as well:

So Friday afternoon was my niece's wedding...she has been planning this since she was a little girl and she wanted an outside wedding.  It POURED all day long, but she persevered with her plan and it was a most memorable event:

The venue was an old mill with a (very loudly) rushing stream right next to the building.  The bride ditched her umbrella before walking up the "aisle" but you can see my sister on the left with hers!  By this point, it wasn't raining hard, just a little sprinkle here and there!

How many times have you sat in a wedding and thought to yourself, "I wish they would speed this up a bit?" Well, this minister spoke at warp speed, deleting many parts of the ceremony in anticipation of the heavens opening up and drenching us all!  It was the funniest thing ever.  And their vows included always cherishing each other and WINSTON (their Scottie dog!!), which brought giggles from everyone:

Quickly, they were pronounced husband and wife and made their way to shelter and the party!

My niece is just beautiful and as sweet and kind and loving as can be...she waited a long time for this and it's definitely one for the books!  I'll share some more pix in a couple of days!  Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!

LeAnne, I love all of your adorable love notes for Cassidy! Such a fun idea and I love the tiny sizes! They all made me smile, but the pigs are my favorite! Now, on to the wedding pictures! Your niece is so beautiful and the setting looks amazing! I am so happy she was able to squeeze in the ceremony between the rain! I know it was a very happy day for all of you! I hope you have a great weekend! XX

Super-duper cute! As a group, in those bright colours, they're even more striking. What a great way to make lunchbox love notes! The wedding looks so beautiful - no wonder she wanted the outdoor setting, no matter what!

What a great set of fun love notes LeAnne! Perfect for Cassidy. I love them all but I think the goldfish are my favourite! The wedding looks fabulous - so glad your niece managed to dodge the worst of the rain and enjoy her day nonetheless, she looks beautiful!

Well, look at you go, making an entire collection of lunchbox lunch notes! I love the cute "fingerprint" critters, and I'm sure Cassidy will, too. So sorry it rained on your nieces wedding, though it doesn't look it bothered her too much. What a beautiful bride!

Those fingerprint critters are ADORABLE! Your lunch box notes are so cute and will surely bring lots of smiles and giggles!

Anne Marie Hile said...

I don’t think I can pick a favorite from these little love notes! But the little kitties rank up there at the top. Haha! Such an adorable collection of card, LeAnne! Your niece is a beautiful bride and they look so happy, even if Mother Nature didn’t cooperate.

LeAnne... OMG your niece is a beautiful bride... and I love her dress! Also love those thumbprint cards... what an adorable idea!

LeAnne, I absolutely love these little notes. I always forget about the fingerprint cards and you have made these so memorable. Just perfect for the challenge. Oh... and.... your niece looked so happy and I love the note about cherishing Winston. Oh..... and that dress was as gorgeous as the bride!
