She's getting married!

I am so excited today because one of my close friends is getting married! Tanya is one of my favourite people and this wedding is probably one I will bawl my eyes out at lol. I am extremely blessed to have a met some amazing ladies at work and the six of us became fast friends. We have been there for each other during the good times and the bad and Tanya is one of the best listeners and supporters any of us could ever have. Yep- I am going to cry. 

Tanya's wedding also represents a milestone for me. I started a weight loss journey on May 31st and buying a new dress for her wedding was one of my mini goals on my way to reach my goal weight. Well I am so proud to share that I am down 4 dress sizes now! I actually could even fit in to the next size down but it was tight. Yippee!! I can't wait to get all prettied up and hang out with my group of gals and watch our friend start a new chapter in her life. In my sexy dress of course hee hee! 

I used a stamp set called Wedded Bliss from Flourishes. I have been buying quite a few of their stamps in the last few months as they are great to colour and their solid image ones have been nice too. Plus they include lots of amazing sentiments. I paired it with some of my new 6x6 paper from MME called Lost and Found 2 Blush.  I used black bazzill for the base, some SU pink satin ribbon and sprayed Pearl glimmer mist all over it to give it a beautiful sparkle. Even my hubby loved it!

Well I better go and start getting ready for TK's big day. I hope you have a wonderful day too!
