I really love the way it turned out!

i actually used real things
from My Wedding, almost
17 years ago.

I just love the wedding collage. It turned out so great. I always enjoy adding items to my collages, so your use of your veil and earrings really struck a cord with me. Your swap buddies will be very lucky indeed. Your items are just lovely! Amy

Love all the goodies you are making. I want ot encourage you about your surgery. I am 10 weeks post surgery and my hysterectomy is already the best decision I have ever made for myself.

My recovery was almost effortless. The Surgery was November 14th and I was back at work light duty on Nov 26th. I blogged openly about it at my place.

Best wishes for a quick recovery.
