Happily Ever After Day 2

Welcome to day 2 of the Happily Ever After Blog Hop. This blog hop runs from May 1st through May 4th. If you are coming from Tricia at Little Scraps of Heaven Designs you’re on the right track. If you just joined us, you can go back to the beginning HERE and hop along with us. We’ve had so much fun creating this hop, and we have a wonderful line up with some oh-so-talented creators. You will see some lovely projects having to do with a wedding or anniversarry theme and have a chance to win some blog candy along the way, including some grand prizes which are being sponsored by Lisa from Honeybearz Designs and she is the first blog on the hop. In order to be eligible for the grand prizes you must leave a comment on every blog in the hop and become followers to all the wonderful sponsors websites also.

Be sure to come back everyday between May 1st and May 4th because all blogs in this hop will post a new project each day. Lisa from Honeybearz Designs will be picking the grand prize winners from all the comments left throughout the 4 days.

Here is a list of the complete lineup for this hop:
Lisa :
Joy Joyslife:
April: - You are here
Kimi & Pamela: - Your next stop
Scraps To Treasures: 
I created this wedding invitation for my aunt who wanted a "fun wedding invitation for simple people."  They planned a BBQ after the service, so I spun off of that theme.  The Splendor papers are from Close to my Heart and the flowers are from Celebrate It.
And here is a variation of the same invitation:

The watermelon, bug and blanket are from a retired Close to my Heart stamp set.  A similar stamp set is Summer Days from Close to my Heart.

As for the winner of my Scrappy Birthday Blog Hop, congratulations to ...
