My Mum is here and NEWLY Married!!

Exciting news - My Mum is visiting for a week!! Woo Hoo!! We were trying to work out how long it has been since we last saw each other.... You know it has been a while when you can't think of the last time... But it has at least been a year. I was very emotional when I saw Mum at the airport yesterday.

Here is Mum, Gayle, and I at the airport - We are very excited to see each other. :)

On the 16th November 2017 my Mum Proposed to her boyfriend of 14 years to marry him.... and he said YES. None of us knew included Mike, that they were going to marry that day. Mum had everything organised - Bridesmaids, the best man and celebrant. Here they all are below -

Yes they are Bridesmaid T-Shirts and yes this is for real! hahahaha. Now you know where I get my amazing sense of humour from.

Here is my fun wedding card that was inspired by those fun colourful bridesmaids shirts and basically sums up the fun my Mum has all the time. This is DEFINITELY not a traditional Wedding card - but Mum and Michael's wedding was far from traditional that is for sure!

I love using my Designer Series Paper! If you find it hard to cut up that gorgeous paper then join my #loveitchopit Workshop Group by signing up here. You will then receive an email with a password. It will help you as it has helped many others to start chopping up that paper and using it to spread love to others. It's LIBERATING! No more paper hoarding, or one pack of paper from a fire hazard.

 I love the colours in this card - Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Basic Black and the Bermuda Bay added in is STUNNING.

I made a little pocket at the top of the card to add in Mum and Michael's card. It is difficult to give Mum a gift while she is here when she is travelling to New Zealand - so we are going to get it delivered to her and Michael. I thought the little photo of what they were going to receive was a fun surprise and she LOVED it. I was so happy with the reaction.

Here are some more fun photos of the wedding -

The Happy Couple

The interesting part in this story is that many years ago - 1974 in fact.. Mike and Mum were a couple! Things didn't work out back then so Mum moved on married and had five children, divorced and now 44 years later, Mike and Mum are now married. What a story right?
