Yesterday, we had Emily's bridal shower in Michigan. It was so much fun! I don't think we have laughed so much in a very long time. I made all the decorations and party favors using current and retired products. The box above was one of the items everyone got to take home with them. I filled it up with Dove heart candy.
Emily got engaged on the beach, so I wanted to include something to represent it. I saw a candle holder like this one on Pinterest and Stampin' Up! has the anchors in the Sail Away Trinkets. These were very easy to make.
We played a couple of games that I found online and decorated them with the Beautiful Friendship stamp set. The colors I used for everything was Blushing Bride (retired), Pear Pizzazz and Seaside Spray.
I made pens for everyone to use for the games. I stamped Whisper White cardstock with the Blushing Bride (retired) and one with the Seaside Spray ink. Whoever got the blue pen also won the notebook that I made to match the pens.
I used Powder Pink ink and paper, which are retired, but you can use Blushing Bride, which is very close in color.

What a wonderful weekend we had! It was absolutely perfect. The only thing I would have changed is more time with my family. We were only there for about 36 hours, so it was a very short trip.
It is tax time at my house this week, so I am going to be busy working on getting all of that fun stuff together. YUK!!! If you don't see a blog post, it is because I am knee deep in paperwork. I will definitely be back next Monday as I will be doing a Facebook Live on Monday night.
