Happy 24th Anniversary

Today is mine and my hubby's 24th Wedding Anniversary.
Wayne and I didn't have a big wedding.
Actually we didn't have a wedding at all, we eloped.
I made my own dress. Which wasn't really a dress at all but a pretty white satin skirt with a blazer blouse :)
My girlfriend Debbie and, her then husband, Craig stood up for us.
We didn't have a reception, we didn't have a honeymoon, we didn't even go out for dinner.
But we are still together after 24 yrs of marriage. Just proves a point that I have. We didn't need a big fancy wedding to celebrate our love to the world. Because the only people that need to know our love for each other ... is each other.
I would love to have a honeymoon now though ;)

Here is the card I made hubby for our Anniversary.
I bought this stamp from Michael's, I thought it was so cute.
















I used some pop dots to raise the image.
When I saw this stamp I was planning to use some pretty pink papers. But figured those colours wouldn't be the best choices for hubby's card.
I won't share the inside of the card as I had already wrote in it. I really don't think you want to read the mushiness I wrote to hubby ;)
















We went out for supper to the Keg.
I was going to buy Wayne a nice engraved wedding ring to replace his old thinning one, but we all know the story with that.
But I'm over it ;)

I thought I would share another photo of my group at the Scrapbook for Heart crop.
I posted this photo on my Face book page and this is what Kristy wrote.
" How'd you guys have room to work? :P "
I think most of us can relate to this, lol.
Hope you all had an excellent Saturday and made some time to create :)

  4. Congrats on your Anniversary! I agree, a big wedding, doesn't make a good marriage! Sometimes I think the bigger the wedding the shorter the marriage will be! Loved the card, as I'm sure he will! Great job! Love Penny Scrap-aholic@blogspot.com

  21. Happy anniversary! And it is so true - a storybook wedding makes no difference at all in the happiness of the marriage. That's why we got married in a bar. :-) Very pretty card too!

  23. Happy Anniversary! I love your story and couldn't agree more. The only two people that matter are you and Wayne. I may have to elope someday! :) If a Mr. Right ever shows up that is. I love the crop photo. That table looks like it's full of treasures! Love it. Hope it was a great event.

  24. Boy, I didn't realize I missed THREE posts...where have I been? Oh yeah, working on that mini album that's long overdue. LOL!

    The card is cute, love the "stick pins" you added that go with that stamp! Congratulations on having the love of your life for so long! So many people aren't that lucky. That's the difference between the love of your life and the love of your wedding.
