When you make a conscious choice to be happy, no one can take it away from you because no one gave it to you: you gave it to yourself.

WOYWW 285 - wedding edition

Good afternoon my friends. Please pop over to The Stamping Ground and check in with Julia!

Firstly please can I thank you all for the congratulations and best wishes for my son, Keagan, following him gaining a place at The British Racing School, Newmarket. He's still beaming and received his start date of 2nd Nov 2015 (he's in Yr 11 so GCSE's to do in Summer) the only small blip to this is that he will be there for Christmas as there isn't a usual holiday like traditional colleges but it's fine I will go up to see him like I will most weekends.

So this week I can finally share some desk shots of what was actually on my desk last week but I wasn't allowed to share as it was for my brother and now Sister in law's wedding that happened on Sunday (16th). We had a fabulous day. I wore a gorgeous dress that made me feel wonderful and I even joined in the dancing all but in my wheelchair! So I'm sorry for photos but I know you'll want to see!!

So the top of the post box decorated in black, orange and white. Wedding colours!

The whole box, quite hard for me to photo as it's nearly as tall as me!! 

My card to Danny and Jennifer. I used the same embossing folder that I used for the invites and added the simple Forever & Always stamp that means so much to them.

So here's some wedding pics for you to see -
Jennifer, the beautiful bride and my handsome brother Daniel.

Me with our Danny. (See it's a dress I'm wearing!)

Me and Danny with our parents.

And finally me dancing in my wheelchair!! One of the bridesmaids took this. I had a great time but my arms and legs are still so sore!! lol

Right that's me, sorry for all the pics but I knew you'd want to see!
Take care Zo xx

Happy WOYWW. Fab wedding - those colours are great. Your dress is gorgeous. I used to be able to dance all night, but don't think I could get through one song now (and would then need a painkiller!). Well done for getting on down in your wheelchair. Ali x #42

Beautiful photos - I LOVE your card! So elegant and gorgeous! The post box you made was awesome too. We don't have those here - is it just for cards, or does it have a special purpose? Lindart #60
