Day 19

Still playing catch up - and I have to go out to a meeting soon so won't get any scrapping done tonight :-( Never mind, should squeeze some in tomorrow, and here's my page for the 19th:

(Sorry the lighting's not so good, I tried with flash and it was worse!)

Giant postcard of poppies, trimmed with threading water punch; strip of ribbon and heart frame made of buttons; Dymo journaling. Oh, and a copy of my in-laws' wedding photo.

We spent the weekend with them - The Doctor's parents - to celebrate their Ruby Wedding anniversary with them. Yep, 40 years! Many congratulations, K and J :-) We had a lovely family meal with The Doc's sister and her family, too, and looked through old photo albums and reminisced lots. J hasn't been at all well lately and we had thought we might need to call off the special meal, but fortunately she's loads better, which was so good to see.

It got me thinking about what a gift marriage is. I'm so blessed to be married to The Doctor. He would hate me saying this 'schmalzy stuff' but he really is my rock; I can't imagine life without him and I love him so much. We've been married 12 years so far and I look forward to celebrating our Ruby Wedding anniversary in 2037! (*wipes a sentimental tear from her eye...*)

I love the scalloped edges you're doing, and using a full picture as your background. I love it!!
