Wedding and Scrapboking

The word is slowly getting out! Yeah for technology! Well, we knew the first question we were going to be asked would be "Have you set a date?". And, we didn't have an answer until last night. As crazy as this is, and as wild as it's going to get, we've decided on October 22, 2005. Yes, that's right, 2005. Yes, we know it's in 6 weeks. Yes, we are out of our minds. But, yes we're happy.

It will be a small wedding, VERY small wedding. We're getting married in a small room, and it may end up only being family. As much as we love you all, it's most important to us that we have our parents there. We are going to try and make sure that all of our parents are there (go blended families!). We will have a reception, but it will also be small and not fancy. We're looking at gettting married at 11:30 am, and then having a light lunch (read: sandwich fixings/salads/chips/vegi tray) and SHORT kind of reception. There won't be any alcohol, but there will be an incredibly awesome punch!! We'd love to have you join us for the reception, and it's going to be very short, but nice.

We're hoping to get announcements out quickly (well with only 6 weeks, it's going to be quick!). Please make sure I have your mailing address. You can email it directly to me at hbeste@yahoo.com or to us at steveandheatherales@yahoo.com.

I finally had a chance to get a layout posted. It's photos from Arissa's last visit, and me. It's been posted to ScrapTalk (my new site of choice) and Two Peas in a Bucket (my other site of choice). It's a fun two page spread with my niece. All patterned paper, chipboard, and rub-ons were designed by Sarah Ackerman-Hale and Teresa Collins when they were part of Rusty Pickle. I sanded the edges of all of the patterned paper so that the white core will show through. Cardstock (green and pink) is Bazzill. Ribbon, metal photo corners, acrylic ribbon slides, and metal ribbon slides are part of the incredible product line by Maya Road. Scroll work stamp is an Art Warehouse by Danelle Johnson. White photo corners are by 3L. Paint used for stamp is by Making Memories. The stamps used in the journaling block are part of the Magnetic Poetry Love stamps line. The rhinestones are by Kandi Corp. Journaling reads: It's always special when my niece Arissa and I have the opportunity to spend time together. Because my sister Bekki and her family live so far away, we don't get to do it often. When we do, I always always make sure we get a chance to celebrate and have a little party for just the two of us. I love the one on one time we spend together. The memory that we create always makes me smile.

Love,~heather
