White Wedding Wednesday~

 Hello my dear friends! I finally got to play in my studio for awhile! It felt good to get back to getting glue on my fingers and to use my sewing machine. I have been very busy! But last night I finally finished this little collage that will be a wedding present for my niece, Ashlee and her husband to be, Joel. I hope they like it! I took this photo off there wedding website (I hope they don't mind). They were on the beach. That's where they're getting married this Saturday. The collage says "mine 4 life".

 One of my numbers I found at a garage sale.
 I was going to glue the rhinestones onto the key but decided to try the solder. And instead of using the soldering iron, I decided to use a flame! Wow, that was kind of scary but I did it! Now, I want to try it again!

You can double click on the photos to see them better. I thought I downloaded a close-up pic of the bird too but I guess I didn't.

What have you been up to? Any creating? Vacations? Gardening? I would love to hear from you.

Have a wonderful week and thank you for stopping by and for your comments.

I'm linking up with Kathleen at Faded Charm for White Wednesday!
