Proof that my brother once adored me

So far the only thing I have finished are the Save the Dates.  They are on yellow paper cut to 4x6 size.  This is just a mock up of how they look...  In reality, the picture in the middle is a magnet.  It sits inside an orange envelope.  The wedding colors are orange, purple, and yellow....  Though it is hard to tell from the picture, it was taken at our wedding venue- a winery...


please excuse the green line... that is word telling me it doesn't like the sentence fragment.  As an English teacher I should be ashamed- but I'm not...  I love the colors.  The yellow paper I used is very close to the mock up color I clicked on in word.  I definitely didn't go traditional in colors.

Here is the water bottle label I created. I kinda like it, but the hubby-to-be loves it, so I guess that matters...
The colors in the larger picture are a little off.  The top is orange, but it looks kinda purple to me in the larger picture.

I wanted to come up with an interesting way to ask my bridesmaids to be in the wedding.  I found a book online: 101 Uses for a Bridesmaid Dress.  I created a little bookmark and put that inside of it.  I wrapped it up in pretty paper and gave it them.

I want to make the jewelry for the bridesmaids as part of their gift, and here is the bracelet I came up with:

I have been working on the votive candles for the centerpieces, and with the help of one of my bridesmaids, this is what we came up with:

Yeah, I did it in word.  Just created boxes for the most part.  The two little squiggles are a font I downloaded from dafonts.com.  It is called Nymphette I think.  But it allowed me to do the squiggles easily.  It took a while to find it, I searched everywhere for something, and pictures were just too hard to use.  There are templates out there, but I thought this was just as easy.  I made a big box in word about 2 inches tall by 7.5 inches wide.  Then filled it with a pattern.  I put a box half the height over top of that and made a new pattern.  Then just created a line to cover the seam of the two.  Put a rounded edged rectangle on top of that, and then a text box.  It was fairly easy.  Let me know if you need any help.  It was fun to play around with..
