Thanks! Feel free

I'm just going to make cute tags for the welcome bags and the folders. They won't have a design on the side of the bag.

We finally get to check into our room and run to the balcony like little kids to see the animals!

We see my favorite animal!!


I could watch them all day. How cute!


This guy became our good friend and a joke for the whole trip. We named him George. He played hide and seek throughout our trip.


We then ran out to the Food and Wine Festival to get dinner and catch Taylor Hicks sing (we saw him last year and enjoyed his show).


Mmmm we love F&W fest.

After the show we happened upon a DP going on in our spot so I had to check it out.




I looked at things like linens, where people stood or sat, if there were centerpieces, what people wore, etc. I guess these are the things you do when you're planning a wedding or as my fairy god-sister has taught me are important to take note of. Daily I go around looking at fonts, colors, prints, all in the name of the wedding planning. Never thought I would be thinking this way but I feel like I missed so much before this!

These are the photos we came away with from the photopass photographer. Hmmm




Don't adjust your screens or glasses - this was with my DSLR on auto.

Here is a photo I took moments later.


I just don't understand how the photos they took came out blurry.

Goodnight F&W fest!

Good morning HS...
This restored my faith that photopass photographers can take a non-blurry photo.


We ate a quick breakfast at the bakery and just sat and people watched. I have to admit this is one of the wonderful parts of having AP. Just taking things slow some days. No need to rush to a ride and getting to see all the people running!

This was the morning we were meeting my best friend from high school who I hadn't seen in years and her BF.


We went to 50's Prime Time as Dan had never been. Right after lunch we went on RR. Yeah I'm one of those people that takes a picture of a picture. I am normally a rule follower but I just can't see spending that much money for one photo. This is where my rule following and thriftyness collide.



We all made funny faces, we were really not that scared.

After that ride we went over to the Beauty and the Beast Show as we had never been! Now I liked Dan even more as he suggested we go see it! He's a keeper Maria!!!


It was great!

Up next we had to run to get Maria's car as we had to go to Carolyn Allen's for Rick's tux fitting. We LOVED them, they were awesome!! Here is half of Rick's tux.


Minus the vest, minus the tie. Sue is going to be hand-making our ties for the boys in our fabric.

That's all for this evening!

If you haven't already made them all...I had one more idea for the luggage tag. Had you thought about making the back side all white by printing on white paper, adhering to the black tag and trimming the sides? Or you could trim it out the same way you trimmed the black paper to make a tag and use your sticker machine to adhere it to the black tag. Then you wouldn't have the black showing around the white. The original looks good...just an idea.

Hmmm good idea Dolly. I think I've made half of them so far. Might be worth a shot although i dread the idea of trying to line them all up on the cricut.

Great pics from your PS trip! I want to stay at AKL so bad - it's our home resort but we love being right at DTD when we stay at OKW or SSR.

We take pictures of the pictures too My mom calls them redneck photographs, lol. They are too expensive!

If you don't want to line them up on a cricut. Print the backside of the tag on white cardstock then trim down to where it is still larger than the tag, but easy enough to work with. Next with the white side facing you, hold the two pieces of paper up to a light source so that you can see the black tag through the white paper. Then you should be able to line up the white sheet with the black tag. Next use double sided tape to adhere the two. Flip it over so that the black tag is on top and use scissors to trim off the excess white paper.

If you decide to try laminating them with shelf paper...place the tag on the shelf paper (after you remove the backing). Then fold the laminating paper over so that both the front and the back are covered with the shelf paper. (Make sure there is at least 1/8 inch shelf paper around all four sides. Then use scissors and trim around the outside of the tag. You do not have to leave any excess shelf paper so cut right next to the tag.

Hope that makes sense and helps if you decide to try.

Thank goodness for my friend who has stepped in and helped more than I could ever thank her for. If it were not for her, I would be beyond stressed out at the moment. It probably helps that she keeps my to-do list away from me. hehe

It's getting so close!!! My poor PJ was abandoned, I just wasn't able to keep up with it, while trying to work to pay for the wedding! I promise a TR full of details!

One week from now I will be heading down to Fl with Rick following a few days later. Everyone that is coming seems really excited so that's awesome!

Hopefully I will be able to post once more before we leave!
